It is ok to post stuff you do and want to learn. Just make sure to PM me the questionnaire. For all who have just sent today, I am getting there. I just got back from two family get togethers. So things should be in order soon.

the way i see it, you wouldn't necessarily need to be an expert in a craft to make a kit on how to do it... just do some homework.  you can find online tutorials, instructions, supply lists and actual supplies and then just put the kit together for your partner.  the best thing is, then you get to learn too!

don't be afraid to dive in and make a kit just because you don't know how to do it yourself.  if your partner then in turn needs assistance, there are millions of helpful crafters here willing to lend a hand.

Great advice, arwena! I've actually done that. I recently did a "Make Your Own Paper Kit" for the OWS Swap. I had never ACTUALLY made my own paper. It was a two in one! I got to do a craft I was interested in but "couldn't find the time," and I was able to put together a kit for someone else!

i have done that too nofury and it is very rewarding.  it is funny too, at least with me, that i would rather put together a kit for someone else in resin or crochet or something else that i don't know much about, than put together one for myself!

Kits I could send:
I think I could do a really good kit about crocheting.
I could probably send a sewing kit for a certain tute but I'm much more comfy with crochet.

What I want to do:
I want to learn to knit mostly.
If there's no one that can send a knitting package, a resin package would do.  Wink

I'm sure you'll be fine. I'm glad I saw your post too. I want to learn crochet ... and I can do knitting.  Grin I was getting worried no one else wanted to knit! Cause all I can do really well is knit and sew. But, have no clue on crochet.

Maybe we'll get paired.  Grin (I don't really know how that whole process goes)

From the looks of it, we need some people to join who know how to do polymer clay but want to learn to crochet! I'd be their partner! I think it'd be fun to put together a crochet kit for someone else.
