GALLERY!..you know you want to peek Wink

Swap Name: Embroidery Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: pinkleo
Sign-up date range: February 14-21
Date to send items by: March 31


Limited to a certain number of people? 24
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? no
Age requirement? must be at least 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

- 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


I reserve the right to refuse anyone. If you have feedback that shows a history of incomplete packages, very late sending, ill-communication, lack of DC #'s, etc. I may refuse you. I want this to be a flake-free swap.


Swap Details: For the love of embroidery, let's swap! 

*We will be swapping 1 crafted large and either 2 bought/crafted smalls or 1 bought/crafted medium*

Need Ideas? You could craft items such as embroidered pillowcases, tea towels, samplers, napkins, journal covers, dolls/stuffies, totes...I could go on and on.  For small/medium items you could swap swap embroidery goodies such as needlebooks, pincushions,thread, needles, patterns, kits.

Examples of sizes: Large: 3 hours or more; $30 or more; set of pillowcases, set of tea towels, large stuffie; Medium: 2 hours or more to complete; $15-$30 in supply value; kit, bracelet, threadcatcher, deluxe pincushion; Small: at least 1 hour but no more than 2 hours to complete; $5-$15 in supplies; needles, needlebook, bottlecap pincushion, bookmarks

For a wonderful swap experience, communication is the key.  Please keep in touch with your partner.

Further, it would be nice if you would post in this thread at least once a week (you could just stop in for a quick hello.....or if on holiday or will be without internet access or anything of the such, just post a message....it just gives your partner and organizer warm fuzzy feelings to know you are still around).

Also, I suggest you create a wist, if you haven't already.  Wists are very helpful to see your likes and wishes.

Notes about sending, receiving, and feedback:
SENDING
  • Take pictures of your items before you send.
  • When sending, you must use a DC# (or for overseas keep that receipt).
  • Keep your receipt until your partner receives. 
  • PM organizer and partner when you send.
RECEIVING
  • PM organizer and partner when you receive.
  • Take pictures of received items. (Please take quality pictures, like ones you would take of your work.)
  • Post pictures in gallery in a timely manner, within a few days.
FEEDBACK WILL BE GIVEN WHEN...
  • When a package is received (verified through PM or DC#) AND pictures are posted in the gallery (This is why it is important for you to take pictures of your items, just in case your partner does not*Please PM if there is difficulty with pictures; it is how I keep up with feedback.
  • Lack of communication and explanation, such as no PMs of sending/receiving, will be noted in your feedback.
.

Okay...you've read my long intro....now to the fun bit....

YAY!!!!

And thanks Kiss....I decided to change for the new year (I loved the colors, style, and the wishing dandelion...and my fantasy-self is just as put together as her Cheesy), though I was so attached to my last avatar I put it in my profile (I adore that painting). Smiley

pinkleo, I know this is off-topic, but how did you make the words "My Wists" a clickable link in your signature?

I've been perusing your wists list and love so many of the things you have on your list!! I haven't added to my list in 5 or 6 months, but I can see that some of the things on your list are going to make it onto mine.

It is not too off-topic since it is craftster related....
To make a link clickable the[/b] code is...
. [ url= enter website here .] enter text you want to appear that is clickable . [ /url . ] 
**minus the . ..I had to put that in so you could see it without creating a clickable Wink**

I love to wist.....my wist reflects my loves....though at times it is fuller than others because I add swap ideas for my partners.
