Okay, I'll start it off. 

Crafts I do:
Knitting
Crocheting
Sewing
Beading
Origami
Stencils
Calligraphy
Photography
Collage
Painting
(And More)

Things I'm particularly good at making:
Fancy knitted headbands, in unusual stitches
Amigurami (especially sea creatures)
Small sewn monsters and other friends. 
Small sewn things (like coin purses, key leashes, brooches, book covers, headbands, wristcuffs, tea wallets, needle holders etc)
Tape/Record/CD/Floppy Disc wallets and purses
Covered Journals
Painted/stenciled tee-shirts, totebags etc
Awesome wall art (especially things with mixed media, like wood, and wire... and reclaiming old vintage stuff, and much more... this is probably my favorite thing to do...)
Various odds and ends (like, scrabble letter coasters, shell earrings, awesome beaded keychains, sweet shrinky dinks, carved candles, photograph bags/bracelets/bookmarks)
I'm also really good at coming up with something in particular... so if you say, I need something to hold all my aprons, or all my yarn that displays 4 skeins at a time, or some way to organize buttons so I can see them, etc etc etc, I can come up with a way to do that. 

So everyone start posting lists! and as I am organizing, if you see someone you REALLY want to partner with, and you BOTH say it when you send in your questionairre, I'm more than happy to pair you up!

This will be good to, so that people can look through these lists for something they want to have made for them!

Crafts I do:
crochet *I can crochet amigurumis, doilies, or some other crochet thing, like crochet pad, bag, scarve. I am not confident on sending a crochet kit, I have no idea how to teach someone how to crochet through paper.

sew  *very new to sewing so I couldn't teach anyone, but I could sew you a tote bag, like a knitting needle/crochet hook roll, apron, or something else.

Quilling *I don't quill much for myself, but have done some for a swap, and have 2 quilling tools, so I could send a quilling tool, some quilling paper and a quilling book. So I guess you could say that I can send a kit for quilling.

I do some other misc. crafts when neede I do come up with things pretty quick, but I think I'm more confident with the 3 I listed.

If I think of any other crafts I would wanna do I will add them to my list!

Ok, sent in the questionnaire. Not telling my SO that Im doing another swap though  Tongue
I make awesome stuffies,from felt, by hand. I can also machine sew, but I dont own a machine lol.
Also can cross stitch, and have done so for ages now, I put my Granmother to shame  Grin my works that good (she told me that, Im not just tooting my own horn!)
Im also pretty good at making stuff from peoples wists, often adding my own twist though lol (like if you have a bag with a bunny on it, I might make you the bunny, or paint the bunny on canvas)

looking forward to starting to craft for a reason, be fun. Been needing to do something, rather than just playing lol  Cheesy although I have been eyeing up crochet booty patterns, my old boss is having a baby (and I get sent pxts of the scans  Cheesy)

I'd say that depends, on the quality of yarn, on whether you include a half done project, and on how awesome your instructions are (illustrated? or just typed?)


if you go look at the swap info, you will find more info on money and time requirements for swap sizes.
