Swap name: Inchies Exchange! rd 2
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: myklia Co-Organizer: RhymeswOrange
Sign-up date range:January 17th through January 31st or until 30 reached
Date to send item by: February 28th

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 30

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO, and you must be willing to send internationally. These will be letter sized packages with no DC numbers, so mailing will be relatively inexpensive. Participants must also be willing to re-send any lost packages in order to receive positive feedback at the end of the swap. Hopefully the mail gods will be kind to us and this won't be a concern.


Age requirement? 13+

Swap Organizer and Co Organizer themselves 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 - RhymeswOrange

- 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
- Participant lives in the United States: YES
   - If yes, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: These packages will be letter size and too small for Delivery Confirmation, but you MUST be willing to resend if a package is not received in order to get positive feedback.
   - If no, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: See the note about delivery confirmation.

Details of swap:
Inchies are tiny little works of art. They are exactly 1" by 1", but grouped together, they are big fun! In this swap, you will make 50 inchies. You will then keep 5 for yourself, and send 9 sets of 5 to different partners. At the end of the swap, you will have a great set of 50!

Here are a couple of examples of some inchies:

There is plenty of time to make these, as sendouts aren't until February 28th. You can start right away, as they really don't need to be tailored to a certain partner.   I will try to match up tastes, but I can't guaranty it at all. All mediums are welcome.  You will want to make sure your inchies are sturdy.  Even those that did fabric had them sturdy.  I don't know if they used some kind of stiffener or what (I don't work with fabric (yet Wink).  Regular office paper won't work as a good base.  You can use things like card stock, cardboard etc.  Again, look at the first round for ideas.  You will be amazed.  Pictures are required.  Some like to post pics as they receive and others like to post after they received all of them.  You use a camera or a scanner.  I found my scanner was my best friend the last round.

Ok, go have fun!!!!!  Cheesy

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

I am maxed out on my swaps and I hope that I can get feedback before this one fills up.  I have such a good idea for some inchies. 

(I guess I could make them and save them for round 3, if it comes to that.)

Knitting goal for 2011: knit 500,000 stitches.  24,078/500,000 knit.  I think I'm going to need more yarn...

We have one person and potentially another person signing up that are still awaiting feedback on other swaps.  What I will do then if this fills up quickly, is wait to assign partners when they get their feedback (which should happen before the sign up period ends if not considerably sooner *crosses fingers*).  I hope that is ok with everyone.

WOO-HOO!
I have gone directly to adding stuff to my wists and my favorite projects by other craftsters!
PLEASE though - if you are crafting for me, PLEASE don't do 'cute'! I don't like glitter or fuzzy-puppy-fluffy-kitten kind of stuff. Sorry if I sound hard to craft for. Really, I'm not!
