Details of swap:
Ever wanted to learn a new craft?! Or re-learn or freshen up on a old and forgotten skill? This is the swap for you. You are to put together a kit on a craft that you do in order to teach your partner to do that craft. Very little crafting is involved, as it is more of a supply sway.

An example:
I live and breathe quilting, but want some fresh air and try my hand at drop spinning. Jane Doe spins day in and day out but would love to learn to make a quilt. I will make her a kit for a quilted table runner with all the notions and fabric/batting required, along with any templates needed. I will also give her detailed instructions on each step of the quilt making process. Jane Doe will construct a kit with any tools and fiber needed to spin some yummy yarn and along with it detailed instructions on each step of the process. When making your partners kit please take into consideration their tastes. If Jane Doe likes girly and floral I wont send her skulls and aliens. I hate yellow and orange so I hope Jane doe wont send me yellow/orange fiber

You will only be sending one kit. I am not assigning a size or points to this so communication with your partner is key. You are to make a kit that is adequate in order to teach your partner your craft. It is also handy to see a finished object of that craft, many in past rounds photographed a tutorial while making a sample object and them sent the completed example. Extras are permitted but please discuss with your partner

Hmm, I like this. I wonder what I could make a good kit about. Possibly embroidery. Anyone interested in that?

If you have already completed a swap and have positive feedback  (which it looks like you do!) you can sign up for up to 5 swaps.  I have signed up for that many in the past, it just depends on the swap and the amount of crafting/time involved.  Its up to you if you think you have enough time and resources to complete both!
