This is the reopening of the original cover a 14" pillow swap! So all criteria and info are the same with some minor ajustments!

Swap name: Cover a 14" pillow swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: irish_chicky
coorganizer:glittergirl94
Sign-up date range: March 22- April 8
Date to send items by: April 27
Participants from all countries allowed? Yes!
All ages allowed? Yes

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 april 1 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

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 irish_chicky.

-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:

a few questions

  • 14 inches by 14 inches pillow?
  • do we make the pillow cover to be a pillow cover or something that has to be stuffed with polyfil to be an actual pillow?

this sounds like it would be fun.

yup a 14 by 14 pillow, for your couch for example. Just a cover, but if you get a partner that wants to make them to be stuffed upon arrival that's fine too

This should be a fun swap! I have so many pillow ideas in my brain, I love making them!!
Also I've changed the sign up times and send out times, since this seems to be a slow swaping time!

We've got almost an entire month...  Float some ideas around now...  confirm when partners are posted...  Come on Homerof2, it'll be fun!  And you'll have a nice couch pillow too!  I'm actually hoping to be paired with someone that'll make a pair of pillow covers(set for my couch)... Grin
