In a nut shell the sweat shoppe swap is a grab bag style swap. Everyone crafts 5 or 10 like items, and in return you will receive 5 or 10 different items. Since you don't have to customize for each of your partners, a lot of people like to make their items ahead of time before signups close, but it is your choice. Here are the details;

Swap name:Sweat Shoppe Swap Round 17 (SSS 17)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: GatorWrangler
Sign-up date range: Jan 2 to Jan 15
PM Organizer top picks by: Jan 16, 10pm eastern
Must be finished crafting (green) by: Feb 6
Date to send item by: Feb 9

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional):NO

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

All ages allowed? yes

This next part is for me and the Mods...
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/NO
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES/NO
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES/NO
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES/NO
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES/NO

Details of swap:
~Each participant will make 5 or 10 like items. For instance, 5 or 10 crocheted cloche hats (varied colors or the same it doesn't matter), or 5 sets of hand painted beads.
~Each item/set should be the best representation of your work, and have an estimated retail value of between $7-$10 USD. If you have any doubt, post your item in the business discussion board and see what others there think. Or you may post in the sweat shoppe discussion thread http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=84367.0 ,
~ When sign ups close, I will ask everyone for a 'top picks list'. That list is a wish list, from the items that are offered, and there will be an effort to match to you, as many items on your list, the remainder of items will be randomly placed.
~Then I will post a list on the forum for about a day. During this time, people can bring any errors to my attention. DO NOT PM ANY PARTNERS DURING THIS TIME UNTIL I GIVE THE OKAY.
~We have a system for sending early; the master list of swappers will be color coded for those who are ready to receive items. When you are finished crafting, you will PM me, and I will change the color of your name on the master list to green, at that time you may send to any other green/ready person! I will also send out a check in PM for those who are not finished early, and at that time your status will be determined.
~ Make sure to get a Delivery Confirmation number for all Domestic shipments. If the item is International, make sure to save your receipt.
~ Feedback will be given when all 5 items are confirmed as received.
~ Positive feedback will be given for all people complying with the craftster swap guidelines. Late senders will be recorded in the comments section, as will poor communication. If I have to track you down, for confirming you have received or sent items, this is poor communication. When an item arrives at your door, you are expected to PM the sender of an item as well as GatorWrangler, and post in the gallery.
~ there are a lot of veteran sweat shoppers here, if you have any questions please feel free to ask your questions here OR you can PM me!
~ You may put your 'name in the hat' once (for 5 items) or twice (for 10 items)


...


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer (GatorWrangler):
Please note: this is an international swap. You may be partnered to send to people out of country.

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER
please put SSS17 or Sweat Shoppe in the subject line!
Name of swap; Sweat Shoppe Swap Round 17 (SSS 17)
Confirm that are at least 13 years old (yes/no)
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address
Do you plan to make 5 or 10 items?
My item(s)/set is called; (think of something descriptively unique  )
My sweat shoppe is; (this can be your etsy or other shop where people can find more of your goodies)

You must pm GatorWrangler when you send AND when you receive!  Your feedback will reflect non communication

I think I might join this round.  I have done this a few times and  I was wondering when did DC numbers start being required?

I am so excited about this! I have a million ideas. I think I'll start testing some out to see how long they take and how many I can craft.

Yes, they are required for all US swaps except I think paper swaps if the package is too thin.

I remembered that the rounds that I did this we didn't need DCs but would have to resend if it never made it.  So I was just wondering when it changed, that's all.  Smiley  Thanks!

A mod informed me right before the holiday swap that I was always supposed to require DC numbers.  I had thought before then that a copy of a receipt would do in a swap like this where you mail so many packages, but I was told I was wrong.

oh, that makes sense.  I thought the same thing as you. 

I already have my offering done.  Will send in sign up later and add a picture.  I am doing bamboo tile necklaces.  Smiley


ETA:
Here is what I am offering.  The finished pendant will be on black cording.  I have 8 pictured just to give some variety, but am offering 5.
