Swap name: WHAT CRAFT DO YOU DO? (THE 'HOW TO' SWAP)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: purple_hippo
Sign-up date range: now - January 7, 2005 (give you some time to get over the hols!)
Date to send item by: January 28, 2005

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): not at this stage, but I'll cap it if it gets too big

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Of course! Encouraged! I'm an Aussie myself! Please let me know if you are happy to ship outside your country, as this may limit participants if noone is happy to swap with them

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All ages, but if you're under 18, please just check with your parents

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: you betcha!

Organizer has been a member for at least 1 month and will
make sure that every participant has been a member for
at least 1 month: oh yeah

Details of swap:
We all sit and oooh and ahhhh over what other people make and we think we can't. This is your chance to remedy that and learn something new!
You must send a 'how to' package for a craft including:
* 3-4 ESSENTIAL pieces of equipment for your craft (these can be any size, use your imagination)
* 5-10 different materials (I thought a range, because if you, for eg embroider, you would need to send less than someone who makes jewellery)
* Instructions for 2 different projects (different difficulties) that can be made USING WHAT YOU SENT (Package these how you wish)
* A (small) completed project, something impressive and fancy (but keep it small!) to inspire the person


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of YOUR COUNTRY?
What craft/s do you do? (Can list in order of preference if there is more than one)
What craft/s would you like to learn (again, order of preference is fine but the more you have the more chance I can match you up!)
If nobody crafts what you want to learn, are you happy with a random craft?


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

I have been hemming and hawing about this swap -- I really want to do it, but I worry that any craft I do is something everyone else already knows how to do.  Is there a way of finding out what sorts of crafts people might want to learn and what sorts of crafts people are able to make kits for?

Just send me a list of any crafts that you're confident in, and any you want to learn, and I'll do my best to match people up. If I get any funny ones, I'll make sure to post in case someone has an unmentioned specialty. And you'd be surprised but whilst some of us may rock your socks off in one craft, we may be clueless about another! The more the merrier!
