Swap name: Fall Handspun Yarn Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: fyberduck
Sign-up date range: September 20 19, 2007 - October 1, 2007
Date to send item by: November 15, 2007

Limited to a certain number of people?: 30

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

All ages allowed? Or 18+? NO

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 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:
Like before, participants will be matched up based on their preferences (fiber to spin/ receive, skill level, and any other additional requests).  There is no maximum or minimum amount of yarn to send (size of skein, # of skeins), but it will be agreed upon by partners beforehand.  Yarn must be spun by the participant, after reading partner's questionnaire.  ALL SKEINS MUST BE READY FOR USE WHEN SENT!  Please set the twist, label the fiber content and amount, etc.

Also, as an theme for this swap, participants will be expected to spin enough yarn for a small to medium-sized project for their partner (a cap, mittens, gloves, etc).  Much like the Magic Yarn Ball Swap, partners will send each other a list of projects they would like to make. Their partner will review the list and spin the yarn for a project AND include the pattern/ directions to make it with the yarn.  If you and your partner decide to spin enough yarn for each other to make sweaters, I wish you luck Grin

Please maintain contact with your partner throughout the swap! Participants are required to mention whether or not they have access to a digital camera, as posting in the gallery is important for feedback and partner appreciation Wink

Wow, what a great idea!  I'm new to spinning at the moment and I don't think anyone other than me would want anything I'm capable of creating just yet, but I will keep my eye out if this happens again once I've had more practice.
