Details of swap:

Welcome to the Givers and Needers swap! It's time for round four!

Givers: If you have an overabundance of craft supplies, this is your role. You send a box (doesn't matter how big or how small; it's totally up to you) to a Needer and receive a little thank-you gift for all your generosity. You do need to get a DC# for your package.

Needers: If you have a need for craft supplies, this is your role. You will receive a box from a Giver with things you asked for in your questionnaire, and once you have received it you will send a little thank-you gift to the Giver.  This could be an ATC, a handmade card, a piece of jewelry, whatever. You do not need a DC# for this gift, but taking a picture of the package before it has been sent (in the envelope) is required.

This swap is limited to 24 people because it takes some work to match swappers up. There will be twelve givers and 12 needers, and once they are filled, they are filled.  I will take people's questionaires in the order they come to my inbox!  Please post in this thread as soon as you receive confirmation from me that you are in.

This is a great way to de-stash and help a fellow crafter out who may for various reasons need some supply help.

If you have not sent out by the sendout date, you will be given negative feedback UNTIL you PM me with your proof of sending your package.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

What a good way to de-stash!  I'll probably sign up for this next week; I have too much stuff to go through it all tonight.

I have updated profiles with feedback.  Please check to make sure your profile is good and you are on the list in the proper place as a giver/needer.   Smiley

Oh, and to answer a question that has come up and will probably come up again - yes, talk to your partner about what they would like!  Make a new friend!  The questionairre is just a guideline for me to match people up according to what they have / neede stashes of.
