I'd be interested in knowing the big and small definitions, too. Is it big in size only or big in work?? :-\And how small is small Huh

This is copy/pasted from here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6553.0

"I've noticed that there has been a bit of confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item.  So here's super geek's handy dandy guide:

By Time
-Big=3 or more hours
-Medium=2 or more hours
-Little=2 or less hours

By Size
-Big=A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium= one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small- Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Big= $30 or more
-Medium=$10-$30 dollars
-Small=$10 or less

Remember, the important thing is that you and your partner agree.  If you want to make each other a purse for a shawl, go ahead.  Just make sure you're being fair Wink.

**edited by Krazigal72- Obviously, each project is different. Please use your discretion when deciding what is a large vs. small project.This is just a suggestion**"

Hope this helps! Most information regarding swaps can be found under this thread:
http://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html
If you have questions that aren't addressed there, please check out this thread:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6553.0
That is where the swap process is discussed. I know some things are easy to forget, I check these two links out every swap I participate in so that I know I'm not screwing over my swap partner or organizer in any way, be it craft wise or mail wise.
Hope that answers your question... and more! Cheesy

Well to add to that list (which always helps me), the sizing isn't physical size, but mostly effort or possibly money (I know some people count money as what they spend on supplies, I am spend VERY little on supplies, and count what I would sell it for if I was selling it.)

I guess a blanket would classify as a large item, huh? Hmm...
Blanket.. pretty large. Maybe even extra large Wink (Or at least... if I made a blanket it would be extra large, but maybe those more skilled with making... blankets... it wouldn't be such a task!)

thanks for the official size info!  I've wondered about that for, um, ever.  I'm an incredibly slow crafter on top of being an overachiever, so I tend to count all my projects as medium, and make a bunch because it's more fun that way.
