DETAILS OF SWAP
This is the Handspun & Handcrafts Swap!! This swap will pair up spinners and non-spinners (hereafter referred to as crafters, not because spinners are not crafters, but to keep things simple), to swap handspun and other crafts with each other.  Spinners will make beautiful yarn for their partners and Crafters will make beautiful crafts for their partners.    Please discuss with your partner to determine level of effort: as a general guideline, spinners will make a skein of yarn for their partner, and crafters will make one large and 2 small items for their partner (of course, both a "skein" and a "large/small item" are really relative terms, which is why you need to communicate with your partner). You can do more than this of course if you both agree to do so.

You can sign up as a spinner or crafter.

If more crafters than spinners sign up, the swap will be limited to the number of spinners (and vice-versa). Participants will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis (sign up early!).

If there are more crafters than spinners, spinners who have successfully completed one swap my take on 2 partners.

Additional Rules:
1. If this is your first swap please read: (http://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html) to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

2. Please create a parcel that you would like to receive. Do some research on your partner. Good communication is really important to keep everyone informed and happy.

3.  Please bookmark this thread and/or post here. All updates will be made here and this will help you to keep up with everything.


4. Please put "Handspun & Handcrafts Swap 4" in the title of PM's.
   Make sure to PM maiziemama when a package is sent/received.

5. Please post in this thread once a week! This is to insure good communication.

Neat.  I'm going to keep this in mind... May or may not have time, must get through other projects first.  Roll Eyes  However, if I haven't signed up by the deadline, and you're hard up for a spinner, let me know!  Probably I can work it in?
