Details of swap:
Basically, a set amount of people sign up. Everyone will buy a tea towel or large flour towel of thin appropriate fabric. Then we send the tea towel in a circular fashion to everyone who has signed up or everyone in your group. In the end, you will get your original tea towel back with about 10 different “pictures” from all over the country. If there are 20 people who sign up there will be 2 groups of 10 if there are less there will be less in each group or one group. depending on how many people sign up.
In simple terms: A B and C sign up:
A > B > C > A (finished towel)
B > C > A > B (finished towel)
C > A > B > C (finished towel)
-You will have 1 week to work on and send out your tea towel and every tea towel you get in the process of this swap, that is one week from the day you receive.
-Please on send thin light colors fabric.
-Please stay in good communication it is very important.
-The first sendouts will be announced after all spaces have been filled.
-Having a camera is not a required, but it is nice to be able to take pictures of what you have done.
IMPORTANT: I need you to seriously consider this swap before joining. This is a LONG swap, taking 3-4 months. You must be willing to give it your full attention for that full amount of time. Also, you must be financially capable of sending out 10 or so padded envelopes. (Even though it's only around $1.50, sending 10 times can add up.) If you're unsure of ANYTHING, watch the swap and gallery to determine if you want to sign up for the next round.
I understand if life gets in your way. I will be willing to extend the sendouts ONE WEEK. The way this swap is formed, having a set of parameters will keep things running smoothly.
Signups are on a first come, first serve basis. ONLY 20 ARE ALLOWED.
