Hey latinas!
I just wanted to suggest a couple of things. First off I think it is awesome that all of you are so excited about craftster and wanting a board for your language/community. The suggestion to go over and post in the cities boards was appropriate, please keep this thread about your swap idea! Also, adding the swap link in your signature is a SUPER idea to get your swap noticed!

I think your swap sounds great and I know a couple of people wanted to know if you are going to match people up in the same country or in different countries... that is a great question! I suppose you can decide to place that in your swap questionnaire. Take a look at some of the other swaps that were country only: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=207571.0 or http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=217144.0 and http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=183611.0 you'll notice that these Aussie swaps are for that country only. It might limit you to just a few people... you could call it a "latina" swap, or make a 'Latina friend swap' or something like that. That might open the idea to some crafters in countries that might not have too many people to swap with, or maybe people that have moved away from home and really miss it! You can ask in the sign up thread if swappers would prefer to swap in their own country or anywhere.

I am not hispanic/latina but I lived in Mexico for some time and would love to swap in this swap! I never got to hang around too many super crafty people, although the crafts and art were all around me and BEAUTIFUL!

One last thing, please keep the posts in English so everyone can read and understand what you are saying Smiley It makes it a bit difficult for the moderators of the swap boards to help the thread. Thanks!!! Smiley

esta idea a mi me interesa muchisimo. tambien vivo en los estados unidos pero como estudio literatura latinoamericana, me encantaria conocer a unas craftsters de latinoamerica.

no se si haya mucha demanda para alguna cosa de/hecho en los eeuu, pero me inscribo como fuente voluntaria por si acaso!

this idea interests me a lot. i also live in the U.S., but since I study Latin American literature, i'd love to meet some craftsters from Latin america!

i dunno if there's much demand for things from/made in the U.S., but I'm volunteering to be a source just in case!

I love personal swaps, accessories, disguises, animals, riding my bike, pen pals, and the Lone Star State.

as non US'er, i find that the cost of postage can make it really hard to do lots of swaps.  contrary to suggestions that small number of participants can limit the swap, i think it can be better as participants can have fun getting to know eachother and in-country swaps make swapping less of a financial committment and more of a craftig committment!!

also, in the spirit of craftster being diverse and embracing all nationalities, i don't see why all posts on the board have to be in english.

"One last thing, please keep the posts in English so everyone can read and understand what you are saying" - how are people who don't speak english supposed to understand??

Yes yes yes yes! that is what I had in mind at first, international postage is so expensive here, the idea of calling the most of the interested latin-crafsters was to have some people in mexico (to swap beetweeen them) some people in Chile (the same) some people in Peru, Guatemala , El salvador etc etc
of course there is the other idea, of having another kind of latina swap, to trade traditional crafts from our countries to other countries, that sounds great too...




also, in the spirit of craftster being diverse and embracing all nationalities, i don't see why all posts on the board have to be in english.

"One last thing, please keep the posts in English so everyone can read and understand what you are saying" - how are people who don't speak english supposed to understand??

I thought we can make a bilingual post, to keep involved the moderators, and also non-english speakers crafsters... but I am realizing how time consuming is... just to post in english... my brain doesnt work that fast in english, and I have many job at home that sometimes I dont even post in threads I'd really like to...


I quote a calluna post, that seems interesting to me

I agree that it is easier/clearer to get thoughts out first in the language in which we think, and then translate it. Other bilingual people could look at both and clarify the English-version if necessary. I think that if you can't find the word or phrase you need in English, and there are people who speak your first language here who could help, you need to be able to ask the question in your language to get the right answer.

I do think there should be a particular place/board/thread for this, rather than having multiple languages pop up in the middle of threads. I think art/craft Spanish language translations could be a "sticky-note" thread in the Latin American City Guides board. I think that would be of interest to lots of people, for various purposes.

I'm going to see if there's been discussion about this for Asian or European languages, since they already have City Guides boards...We need a crafty speaker-of-multiple-languages (is that what a "polyglot" is?)!


maybe you would like to go here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=174472.0

there is a discussion about spanish-english posts too...
thanks for comment, please keep doing it  Cheesy

Soy gringa pero me apunto a los intercambios latinoamericanos o hispanohablantes.
I'm an North-American Anglo woman, but count me in for the Spanish-language or Latin American swaps.

Además sería bonito hacer intercambios personales.
Personal swaps would be nice, too.

Soy euroamericana, digamos, y mi esposo es colombiano. Enseño español para principiantes en una politécnica.
I'm a Euro-American, i guess you could say, and my husband is Colombian. I teach beginner level Spanish at a tech college.

Hablo espanol un poco.  Tomo clases en el colegio.  Por favor, perdoname si haga muchos erores. 

Vivo en los estados unidos, pero estoy interesante en un swap con personas que se hablan espanol.  Si no puedo hacerlo, estoy contento con la practica del espanol.

I speak a little spanish.  I take classes in high school.  Please, forgive me if I make a lot of mistakes. 

I live in the US, but I'm interested in a swap with people who speak spanish.  If I can't do it, I'm content with the spanish practice.
