Swap name: Funky Black Purse Swap

Craftster member who is organizing this swap: crafty_dame
Sign-up date range: Saturday March 26 Ė Saturday April 2
Date to send item by: Saturday April 23

Limited to a certain number of people? no, though if it starts to get extremely popular, I might get overwhelmed and cap it. So if youíre interested, sign up right away!

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Most definitely.

All ages allowed? Or 18+? sure

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

Organizer has been a member for at least 1 month and will
make sure that every participant has been a member for
at least 1 month: YES

Details of swap:

i was really impressed with the originality in the hot pink purse swap (check out that gallery for pictures!), and this swap will be the same in black. black purses are a handy thing to have, since they go with almost everything, and there would be so many ways to make them original.

you could do black on black stenciling, textured black fabric, black sequins, cool black upholstery fabric, black appliquť, knitted or crocheted black bags, basically anything as long as black was the main colour in it.

Everyone will make one black purse, and receive one black purse in return.

There have been a lot of flakes lately in swaps, and a lot of half-assed swap packages being sent. Please donít sign up unless youíre willing to put effort into the bag you make. Iíve added a bunch of questions to the questionnaire, please answer them with as many details as possible. I really want to try to match everyone with a partner who will make them a bag that suits them. Iím not guaranteeing that you will be swapping with someone in your own country, and Iím not going to automatically match Canadians with people overseas. PLEASE BE AWARE OF THIS BEFORE YOU SIGN UP! YOU MAY HAVE TO SHIP OUTSIDE OF YOUR OWN COUNTRY! My biggest priority is going to be matching people up by styles and that sort of thing, not by geography.

When you mail your package, you need to let me and your swap partner know. Please send us a pm. And you must use Delivery Confirmation. I know that itís sometimes not possible, or too expensive when shipping between countries, but itís REQUIRED when youíre shipping within your own country. And please ask at the post office if youíre shipping between countries. Sometimes it is possible to get it, and itís only a few dollars more. If you can't get DC, you MUST save your receipt.

When you get your package, you need to let me and your swap partner know.  Please send us a pm. Post pictures in the swap gallery if possible. If pictures arenít possible, please post a description in the gallery.

PLEASE TRY TO MAKE SOMETHING YOUR PARTNER WILL LIKE. Everyone has different tastes, and thatís fine, but if your partner says they hate orange and black, DONíT make them an orange and black purse. It may seem obvious, but apparently itís not.

PLEASE DONíT FINISH YOUR PURSE BEFORE YOU ARE ASSIGNED A PARTNER. Please wait to see what your partner would like. Iím allowing three weeks between the end of sign up and the mail date, if you donít think this is enough time, please let me know.

IF YOU HAVE A SPECIFIC PURSE DESIGN THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAKE, please contact me about it. Iíll try to give you a partner who would love it.

I started looking online for black fabric and I can't wait to get my partner. Hopefully I'll get partnered with someone who likes modern/geometric patterns *hint hint**. I'm glad the sign up isn't long, I'm ready to get started!

as i said in the original swap description, you MUST be willing to ship internationally to join this swap. internationally means countries other than canada and the us. i really don't understand what the problem is with this. americans have the cheapest shipping anyway, it costs them less to ship internationally than it costs canadians. we're only talking about a few dollars more!

please don't sign up and then send me a pm saying that you won't ship internationally. i won't add you to the swap list, and you're just wasting my time, and your own.

My gosh...I've been waiting for a swap organizer like you. No offence to any crafters/swapees that I've been paired up with, but I'm kinda getting sick of being paired up with the same names all the time as organizers are trying to 'protect' the shipping within US thing.

That just totally left those of us outside US circulating among ourselves for most swaps.
