Swap name:  Wist swap
Our Wist Swap Gallery!
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: kaishabackwards
Sign-up date range: October 1 - 17 or until full.
Date to send item by: November 26

Limited to a certain number of people?:  24

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? No

Age requirement? Over 13

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old: YES


Details of swap:

For this swap you may either make something that is on your partners wists or something based on something from their wists. For instance, if someone had lots of cat items on their wist then you could send them something with cats.  Or you could make something in the style of something on their wist. For this swap a variety of items is also strongly encouraged, don't put 80 sewn skirts on there! Make sure there are a variety of knit, crocheted, sewn, polymer clay,  jewlery, handmade yarn and paper crafted items That way you wont have to worry if you dont know how to do a certain type of craft it is okay to use your partners wist as inspiration. It will be a lot easier to craft for someone, and a lot easier for the organizer to match people up! 

Before you sign up make sure to go through and edit your wists, take off things you already have or don't want anymore. Also make sure to mark things YOU want to make, not have made for you, as private.

You must have a wists account to join this swap.  You must have a minimum of 80 items in your wists account.  At least 60 of those items must craftable. However, more than the minimum amount is strongly encouraged. 

Well be using the point system for this swap.  Youll have to send your partner 6 points of items.

Small Item = 1 point
Med Item = 2 Points
Large Item = 3 Points

For new swappers there might be a bit of a confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item, so here's a handy guide: 

Small = By time, 2 or less hours of crafting. By $$$, $10 or less. By size, Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

Medium = By time, 2 or more hours of crafting. By $$$, $10-$30. By size, one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf

Large = By time, 3 or more hours of crafting. By $$$, $30 or more. By size, A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse

This is not totally set in stone, but is a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost.


Rules:

All participants must check in at least once a week, by pm or by posting in this thread.

If your partner is within the US, you MUST get a DC and pm it to the organizer and your partner.

Be aware of the comments section on wists, someone might add something and you go to make it, but didnt notice in their comments that they would only want that item in a different color.

Important note: Feedback will ONLY be given after you send, receive, and post pictures of what you received. If you do not have a camera, please make arrangements with your partner so they can take pictures before they send.


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.


QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap:  Wist Swap
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 13 years old (yes/no)

List your wists here as well as any other stalkable places youd like your partner to know about here:
What are your favorite colors/patterns?

Are there any colors/patterns you dislike?

Is there anything specific you'd like? (clothes, house wears, jewelry, etc):
What kind of crafts would you like to do?
What kind of crafts would you like to receive?

Are there any materials or crafts that you do not want to receive?

Pleas state here if your Wist is heavy on one type of craft (ie: if you have a lot of knitted items) so that it is easier to match you up with a partner who can craft for you:

Do you want to craft for more than 6 points of items?

Anything else you want your swap partner to know? (sizes, aversions, allergies, etc):
Do you have pets or smoke?


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

I did want to participate (well, still do!) but to be fair to my partner-to-be, I shouldn't right now. I'll be lurking though! Wink

Maybe round 2 then.

I looked in the help section on wists and it says that if your firewalls are very heavy some people may have problems accesssing it. Also it says there is a "light" version that may work on older programs.

I think there are other wishlist type sites, but I don't know the name of them.

I did a search~
www.wishlist.com
www.wishlistr.com
www.wishlisting.com
http://froogle.google.com/shoppinglist

Just because wists is the most popular, doens't mean you can't participate with one of the other sites!
