 Swap name: Lotus Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: ptarmic wumpus
Sign-up date range: 12/22/06-1/13/07
Date to send item by: 2/20/07

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional):25

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO

All ages allowed? Yes

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: limited to 25

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:

Craft items related to the aquatic plants of the genus Nelmubo, aka Lotus! Lotus flowers, lotus leaves, lotus seed pods, any and everything lotus. Swappers will discuss with their partner how many items to send.  You can read about guidelines for item sizes here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6553.0

There will be two checkins, one at the beginning of the swap (to make sure you are in communication with your partner), the second at the end (to make sure everyone is on track to ship), you must respond to BOTH, or lack of communication will be noted in your feedback. If you will be sending late, you *must* pm both your partner and the organizer, preferably before the sendout date. If shipping within your country, you must get a DCN or tracking number; if tracking is not available or you are shipping out of the country, please save your shipping receipt.

Efforts will be made to pair swappers with others in their country/region.

FYI new swappers: filling out the questionnaire as detailed as possible will help your swap partner a lot! The requirements for swap participants are in purple above; the other requirements are for the organizer only.
 


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Lotus Swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name

Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of your country/region?

Just FYI, I am considering signing up for this swap. There are a lot of post-holiday swaps going on right now though, so I'm waiting to see. I don't want to be signed up for too many! But I wanted to let you know that there IS interest out there, even if I'm only one lonely soul!
