Superhuge thanks to Neliamne who pioneered this swap idea!

Swap name: Cover a 14" pillow swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: rosali
Sign-up date range: 4th Dec - 17th Dec
Date to send items by: 18th Jan
Participants from all countries allowed? Yes!
All ages allowed? Yes (Please ask your parents if you're under 16)

Swap Organizer 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 gains 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:

-If you would like to make and receive a gorgeous pillow cover this swap is for you; it could be sewn, embroidered, knitted; anything you can think of! We'll only send the cover not the pillow form to save on postage. I'll assign partners on Dec 18 then it's up to you to discuss ideas with your partner so you'll get a really special pillow that you'll love!
I'll be sending out PMs throughout the swap, please reply so I know you're not a flaker. Also please keep in contact with your partner - it's the most fun part Smiley

RULES:

-All participants must be willing to ship to international destinations if necessary. Since were only sending a single 14" cover, shipping costs should be reasonable.

-You must send a DCN delivery confirmation number (for within the USA) or photo of your receipt (for international) to your swap partner and me rosali.

-Shipping Tip For US Residents (courtesy of kategirl): The USPS requires that the package measures at least thick for a DCN.  If your package is too flat, it might be necessary to bulk up the package with a couple of plastic grocery bags to get the DCN!
-Shipping Tip for Sending TO Canada: Canadian Customs really, really likes getting their cut ($5 handling fee plus taxes on the declared value). Please remember to mark your customs form with gift and NCV (No Commercial Value) or NA (Not Applicable) when sending to Canada.
-For US swappers sending to Canada (thanks to yarncookie for the info): The name of the form is Custom Declaration CN-22 (PS Form 2976) and is green and white. But you have to fill it out at the post office, you can't get it off the usps website.

 
If that sounds good to you and you want to participate, send the following information to the organizer:

Sent and approved!  And all in about ten mintues!  Woo Hoo for the speedy organizer! 

When I sent in my info I requested that I be paired with someone(if there is someone interested, that is) that would like to craft a pair of pillow covers.  I'd love a set for my couch, wouldn't you? Grin  And if not(I know it may be a tall order during the holiday season) I'd be happy to get one pillow cover just the same!  Happy Crafting to All!

hmmm, I'm quite interested in this swap and would probably be interested in making a pair of pillow cases, if someone was still interested in that.

  However I will have to wait and see how the holiday crafting goes before I can sign up for this.

This sounds great! I've been wanting to try and knit a pillowcase for a while, but I haven't had a good opportunity up 'til now.  Smiley I've got some cool ideas running through my head.

yay! I'm excited.  A pair of pillowcases is a good idea.  LOL, i only have room for 1 because i live in a 10'x12' dorm room, but I definitely understand how that's the perfect size pillow for a couch.  Can't wait!
