Hello Hot Pink Purse Swappers,

This is your official 7 day reminder:  you have seven days to ship your bag.

I PM'd everyone last week, so I'm doing so here this week. Don't forget to get Delivery Confirmation number and send it to me via PM.

How are things coming? I've heard from about 3 people who have sent their purses, but only one person (hawaiilove) has recieved hers (according to what I've seen in the gallery.) If you've recieved your bag, please post pictures in the Swap gallery. If you've run into trouble, contact me and let your partner know.

Can't wait to see the bags,
lisaquilts



Swap name: Hot Pink Purse Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: lisaquilts
Sign-up date range: until Thursday, January 20
Date to send item by: Feb 14

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 19/21

Non-U.S. participants allowed? YES

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All ages

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES, only craftster members in good standing allowed

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: YES and YES

Details of swap:

Make a purse (handbag, totebag, clutch etc) using hot pink fabric (or member of the hot pink family: magenta, bright red, even some purples might count). The bag can be entirely pink or be accentuated with pink. Details can be worked out via personal message once pairs are made. Shipments must be posted by Feb 14th, but should be sent earlier if you want it to arrive before Valentine's Day. USPS or UPS Delivery confirmation is required. As a courtesy, please notify (if not outright thank) the person who sent you a hot pink purse when it arrives. Images and/or other acknowledgement of reciept can may be posted on this thread (images posted with permission of crafter; see questionnaire).

Please copy/cut and paste the following questionnaire. Fill it out and send it to me via personal message (cute little icon in top left corner Wink)

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 the US?
Are you willing to have an image of your purse posted on the swap's thread?

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 changed the only US requirement, since several people have indicated a willingness to ship to craftsters outside the States. Be sure to indicate your preference in the questionnaire.

Hi There,
The swap has been updated to include non-U.S. craftsters. I guess it's not as much of a concern as I previously thought, since several people have volunteered to ship abroad.
Happy purse making,
lisaquilts

I went to JoAnns last night and was disgusted at the lack of hot pink fabric. This may prove to be more difficult than I imagined....EBAY HERE I COME!
