Details of swap:
Do you sometimes feel like you are stuck in the wrong generation? Do you imagine yourself swooning to Dean Martin or Elvis Presley? Or just have a thing for pin ups & T-birds? It's a 1940s / 1950s swap!
For this swap you should craft or buy 1940s-1950s themed, according to your partner's likes. If you have a wist, make sure your partner knows about it, so she has an idea of what to send. You’ll have to send your partner 4 points of items.
Please send something of the quality you would like to receive.
Small Item = 1 point
Med Item = 2 Points
Large Item = 3 Points
For new swappers there might be a bit of a confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item, so here's a handy guide:
Small = By time, 2 or less hours of crafting. By $$$, $10 or less. By size, Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks…
Medium = By time, 2 or more hours of crafting. By $$$, $10-$30. By size, one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf…
Large = By time, 3 or more hours of crafting. By $$$, $30 or more. By size, A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse…
This is not totally set in stone, but is a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost.
All participants must check in at least once a week, by pm or by posting in this thread, and tell their progress. If you don’t, you will get a comment in your feedback.
If your partner is within the US, you MUST get a DC and pm it to the organizer and your partner.
Be aware of the comments section on wists (if you check them), someone might add something and you go to make it, but didn’t notice in their comments that they would only want that item in a different color.
Important note: Feedback will ONLY be given after you send, receive, and post pictures of what you received. If you do not have a camera, please make arrangements with your partner so they can take pictures before they send.
