FRIENDS OF CRAFTSTER ONLY, PLEASE!

Not a Friend of Craftster? Join here! Support the website that supports your crafting needs

**This IS an international swap, so if you are unable to ship outside of your own country please wait for the US only round.

Items MUST be crafted and ready to go by the end of signups, as you only have 1 WEEK to send them out! So once you know you are approved, start craftin’!

If you have a ‘pre-made’ item, GREAT! This means you’re ready to go and we’ve barely begun, so post a picture and sit back and chat us up ‘til signups close!

Photos of all 'prizes' are DUE NO LATER than 4/28 so everyone has an opportunity to see what will be offered before the drawing and sendouts.  If you do not post a picture by this date or at all, it will be noted in your feedback, as this IS a requirement for this swap to be a success.

Drawing will be done on 4/29 , PMs will be sent to the 'prize' creators letting them know who 'won' their item and where it should be sent to.

Swap is for: one (1) medium item (Medium = 2 or more crafting hours OR $10-$30 dollars) Can also be a pair/set of 2-3 small items to equal 1 medium. Please PM me if you have questions about your item offered.

This will be a 'raffle' style swap. There will be 2 hats: one full of swapper's names and one full of the items made by these swappers (with the name of who made that item below it to avoid the creator 'winning' back their own creation!). A name will be picked, then an item picked, and that person gets that item drawn! An almost complete surprise...as photos would be posted of all items for all to see, so you can look and dream and wish for all the ones you like...then see what shows up at your door! Serious concerns will be addressed in the swap questionnaire (ie-Vegans receiving things made from wool and other animal-derivatives, wool/food/smoke/etc. allergies, etc.) so people don't end up with something they ABSOLUTELY cannot have around them or their family for health/lifestyle issues, and if it happens, then the name and item both go back in the hat and are drawn again until a favorable match comes up.

When a ‘winner’ is chosen, the creator of their ‘prize’ will get their address from the organizer in a PM. PLEASE try to keep this a SECRET if you DO figure out who you are sending to! This way the ‘winner’ will be surprised with their ‘prize’ when it arrives 

Please communicate in the thread ONCE a week at a minimum so we know you are still out there and crafting for the swap. If I have not seen you posting in the thread, this will be reflected in your feedback.   I will check in with you when there is about 2 weeks left to make sure you are still in on a ‘prize’ for the drawing.

Delivery Confirmation is required for this swap. For international mailings, please retain the receipt as proof of mailing.

Please PM the DC to the organizer, me TheSapphireMoon, once you have sent so I can update your name on the front page and maintain my records. For any items that are lost in the mail, adequate time for the package to arrive or be returned to the sender will be allowed, and if it never arrives a swap angel will be arranged to craft a comparable ‘prize’ for the ‘winner.’

Feedback will be given when your partner has received.  Please PM me when you send AND when you receive so I can keep my lists updated!

I will post a gallery for ‘prizes’ so when the ‘winner’ receives their item and may have it displayed in their home/wearing it/put it to use in some way, they may post a picture or two for us showing off their great ‘prize.’

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Friends of Craftster Raffle Swap (FOCR) R5

I managed to completely miss signups for the last round, so I'm posting now so I get updates and don't forget!

I'm kind of in love with doilies at the moment.  I wonder if a set of doily-style coasters in a pretty colour might fit the theme.  Doilies look like flowers!

I am thinking about this... I have a couple of ideas, but again, time is an issue. Although, I do have a vacation coming up in a couple of weeks...

Would anyone be interested in a crocheted flower necklace? I've wanted to make one for a while, but I'm not sure if I'd wear it...

I definitely have to do this (despite trying to phase out swaps altogether to have more of a personal life Tongue).  The drawing is in my 41st birthday and I have wanted to do one of these, so I think this is a sign I should join.  I'm not signing up until I have a done item to offer, just to make sure I'm not sweating at the last minute.  Ideas already popping up in my head.  Yay!!!
