Swap name: First Timers Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: KnitChick1979
Sign-up date range: October 7 - October 14
Date to send item by: November 11

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No but I'd like an even number if possible!

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
If so, which country? N/A

All ages allowed? Or 18+?  All ages, just make sure you can get your package mailed!

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

Details of swap:

This is a swap to get your feet wet!  This swap is just for people who have never swapped on Craftster before, to get that
all important first swap under your belt so you can sign up for multiple swaps.  Sorry but if you've done one or more
swaps before please do not sign up, this is a swap JUST for the newbies!

I will try to pair people up as best as possible based on craft skills and interests.  The more detailed your
questionnaire, the better I can pair you up!  I also plan to try to pair people up within the same countries, if at all
possible. 

You will be sending one large item OR two medium items plus one or two small items.  I'm trying to make this an easy
swap to get everyone used to swapping. 

Please do communicate with your partner about what you are crafting, your interests, etc.  I've found that the more you
communicate the happier everyone is!  This is not a secret swap, so talk it up!  Smiley


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:  (please put the swap name in the message subject so it doesn't get too buried in my inbox!)

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address (please format it as it should be on the package, especially for non-U.S. addresses!)

Is it weird to be nervous because I signed up?

Nah, that's probably the swap anxiety starting early Smiley

You're in, as well as two other people.  I'm kinda nervous myself but that's because this is my first time organizing, so we're all learning together!

Gee, ABC is saying we're going to have SNOW by the end of this week, YUK.  Oh well, an excuse to plant my butt at the computer and organize my brains out!  Heehee.  Oh and I guess when people aren't PMing me, I'll turn to the little folding table and crank out some stuff for my new Etsy shop so I can afford some things I really need like a digicam!

I'm in Chicagoland.  We're about due, though this is a little early.  Too bad, I was hoping the 70s would stick around another week so the Crafster meetup here wouldn't be too cold!


5 participants!  Smiley  And so far it looks like I haven't screwed up adding feedback to profiles <phew>
