You do not need a DC# if you are shipping out of the US - but you do need to keep your receipt.You will make 12 stitch markers and a means of containment (a bracelet, a little fold up case, a ring - you get the idea). If you cant help yourself and want to make more - please only do so if your partner agrees.

Please feel free to PM me any helpful links for stitch marker creation and Ill add them in the thread.

I'm in.  The stitch markers should be easy (I used to primarily be a beader), I think the challenge will be in the "containment" part.  I can't do anything until I know what my partner wants, but I am looking forward to it.

Someone in the original thread mentioned using a key ring to hold their markers - that sounded pretty handy to me. Right now I'm using a little travel case made for holding rings - that works great too.
