Thank you to BlooCanoe for creating the first round. What a great idea!!!

Swap name: Handspun & Handcrafts Swap 2
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: groschveux
Sign-up date range: March 5 - March 19 or until maximum is reached, see below.
Date to send item by: April 10

Limited to a certain number of people?: 30 people or 15 pairs (first-come, first-served basis, see below)
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
All ages allowed? Or 18+? All ages, if <18 please check with your folks first.

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 at least one swap successfully before signing up for more: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES



DETAILS OF SWAP
This is the Handspun & Handcrafts Swap!! This swap will pair up spinners and non-spinners (hereafter referred to as crafters, not because spinners are not crafters, but to keep things simple), to swap handspun and other crafts with each other.  Spinners will make beautiful yarn for their partners and Crafters will make beautiful crafts for their partners.    Please discuss with your partner to determine level of effort: as a general guideline, spinners will make a skein of yarn for their partner, and crafters will make one large and 2 small items for their partner (of course, both a "skein" and a "large/small item" are really relative terms, which is why you need to communicate with your partner). You can do more than this of course if you both agree to do so.

You will sign up either as a Spinner OR a Crafter, please use the appropriate questionnaire below.

If more crafters than spinners sign up, the swap will be limited to the number of spinners (and vice-versa). Participants will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis (sign up early!).

I am anticipating that there will be more crafters sign up than spinners. Therefore, spinners who have successfully completed at least one swap may choose to take two partners if desired, and crafters will be limited to one partner, to ensure that more people get a chance to participate.

Additional Rules:
1. If this is your first swap please read: (http://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html) to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

2. Please create a parcel that you would like to receive. Do some research on your partner. Good communication is really important to keep everyone informed and happy.

3.  Please bookmark this thread and/or post here. All updates will be made here and this will help you to keep up with everything.

4. I will be giving feedback in the following way:
- great swapper: for those who follow all the rules
- good/poor communication: where applicable
- sent late/early: where applicable
5. Please put "Handspun & Handcrafts Swap 2" in the title of PM's.
   Make sure to PM groschveux and knitwit when a package is sent/received.

6. Note that I will ask people to check in with me and on the board halfway through the crafting period. Responding to the check-in is part of keeping good communication.

I like making stuff. Rumor has it, I'm an elf. Like a Santa Elf, not one of those elegant LOTR types.  Mostly because I compulsively craft and partially because I have green shoes.
