Swap name: Over 30 Fine Wine Geezer Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Dulcinea
Sign-up date range: January 1 - January 13, Partners on January 14
Date to send item by: February 14

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Probably Not

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

All ages allowed? Or 18+?  Gotta be over 30 - we'll be carding people at the door.

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, Dragonflyducky
- Is a crazy old geezer:  YES

I reserve the right to deny any craftster's entrance into this swap for the following reasons...
ANY "negative" feedback comments
poor communication in past swaps
sending late in past swaps
having less than ONE completed swap  (changed from three to one)

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
- Must have participated in and completed at least 1 swap before this one:  YES (changed from 3 to 1)

Details of swap:
This is a swap for the geezers.  The idea here is that we've all been crafting for eons, and are pretty good at what we do.

This is also a swap where there is a sizeable commitment, both for time, and resources.  We are going to be crafting one really big, really nice item for our partner.  If you cannot commit to the time or resources, please consider carefully before signing up for this swap.

You'll make up a list of 5-10 large things that you would love if someone made for you.  You'll also make up a list of 5-10 things that you're really good at, that you'd love to make for your fellow geezers.  And if you can make it from your stash, and reduce the stash, making room for more, NEW stash, so much the better. 

What's a large item, you ask?  generally, we're talking something that takes 3 or more hours, is large in physical size, or costs $30 or more in materials (or any combination of those).

If you want to add other, smaller things, please confer with your partner, so that no one feels like they didn't have a fair trade.  However, this really wasn't intended to be a package with loads of small items.

You need to post to this thread, so that it comes up as unread replies if I have something to tell y'all.

I will not tolerate flakers.  We all will have a month to craft, and send out.  That should be enough time.  A DC or Customs number is required, if available.  If you do not have a DC or Customs number, you MUST send me a scan of your postal receipt, showing that the package was sent out.

If you get to February 21 (7 days late) and have not sent out, you will get a negative.  This negative will be replaced with an in progress once your package is sent out and proof sent to the organizers.

Sorry for being a meany pants!

a wist isn't really a requirement, but it sure makes it easier on your partner to get a sense of your likes and preferences

I'm interested, but it will take me forever to fill out that form. I'm notoriously bad at those questionnaires.  Tongue

Hee,let's see how my willpower holds out.Seriously,I'm a geezer,yes,but a geezer who hasn't been crafting that long,and I honestly don't think I can make one big spiffy thing worthy of my fellow geezers.Plus I just signed up for the Steampunk swap.Two swaps at once is my limit-I did three slightly overlapping swaps once,and it drove me insane! But I did get them all done!
And I don't have a wist-I'm such a luddite.
I know,excuses,excuses.
(pours everybody a big glass of champagne for the new year,tiptoes away to lurk)

Oh wait dang!  Tongue There I go jumping in head first! I got so excited about this, I didn't see where the rules said you had to have participated in 2 other organized swaps! So, I guess I'll just watch this thread and live vicariously.  Cry

Grin Yay! I just knew there had to be some fellow Geezers here! I'm a newbie and just got shut out of the newbie swap.....I was so bummed! But, I think it was fate! This sounds like the perfect swap and group of Craftsers to get to know!

2008 is the year I get my craft freak back on! I haven't been as crafty as I like in recent years and vowed to change that this year.

So, now I have to run fill out the form.....and what's a wist? I've seen it mentioned....but, not sure what it is! Is it friendly?
