Hand Embroidered Patch Swap

Craftster member who is organizing this swap: rectangel
Sign-up date range: 10-23 until 11-02 -this is a very limited space swap-maximum 15 people
Date to send item by: November 27, 2007

Limited to a certain number of people?: YES
Should be willing to ship outside your country.

Must have successfully have completed one swap.

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
All ages allowed? Or 18+? all ages

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: This designed to be a quick swap that will net you hand embroidered patches from 3-5 different people. 

You will receive a PM with the questionnaires for the people you are making patches for, feel free to communicate with them.  When you finish a patch we hope you will post an image of it.  However, you dont have to reveal who it is for so it will still be a surprise for the recipient.  Once your partner receives they are welcome to identify the design they received.  When you receive you must PM the organizer AND the sender.  Each person who you are making a patch for will be making one for you too.

You are required to post in the gallery or the original thread at least once a week after the start of the swap to keep us apprised of your progress.  If you do not post weekly or apprise your organizer of your progress I will advise your partners to hold off sending.  If you state in your questionnaire that you wish to be part of a big group you may have 4 or 5 partners if you state in your questionnaire you wish to be part of a small group you may have 3 or 4 partners. 

It is always nice to pick a design with your partner in mind Smiley  The unfinished (open back) patch specifications are as follows minimum size is 3 by 3 maximum is 10 by 10.  They can be on felt, quilting cotton, denim or twill.  If you are using fabric that frays you should include a minimum seam allowance all around the patch or square (ie the 10 max square would then be 10 1/2).  Additionally, if you are using fabric with a grain it is strongly recommended you align your design with the grain of the fabric.  Remember your partner can always trim your patch but your design could be rendered useless if it is too close to the edge of the patch. 

Since the patches are light and small they should all fit nicely into an envelope that can be mailed relatively inexpensively.  Each design should be signed or tagged with your screen name.  Consider carefully if you have the time to complete the patches before signing up.  If you send patches to all your partners on time you will receive positive feedback once they arrive.  Tracking does not have to be used but if your item does not arrive you will need to resend in order to receive positive feedback.  Postal receipts should be kept and photographs are also recommended.

Additionally, it is a good idea to put the patches in a plastic bag before putting them in the envelope to ship in order to protect the fabric from the ravages of shipping.

If you want to participate, send the following information to the organizer -

rectangel, if you need a co-organizer so that you can open it up to more than 15 people, I'd be happy to oblige.

You're in flynn Wink I'll be updating the profiles later today.  Thanks GatsbyGirl...we'll see how it goes. 

I am really skeptical about openning it up past 25 because even with 15 it means documenting a minimum of 45 shipments!  I feel moderately prepared but I think I will be enlisting some help regardless so I will put you on the list Smiley
