GALLERY!!! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=306045.0

There has been a lot of enthusiasm for the "Sciencey" swaps and the various "geek-friendly" telly programmes swaps... so why not a Geek chic swap?

For those who would not know what Geek chic is, Wikipedia to the rescue! There you go : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geek_chic

Come on, we all want a nice stencilled t-shirt with a big 'super Mario' mushroom on it or a Monty Python quote, a quirky necklace made of buttons, a scarf that spells something in binary, a fractal teddy bear, something to decorate your carrel at the university, a t-shirt with your field of studies written on it, or perhaps a XKCD pin! Think about the possibilities!  Grin

Well be having three different groups based on the size of the swap people are willing to do. Closet Geekster, Come to the Geek Side, and Embrace Your Consummate Geekitude.
Closet Geekster requirements: 1 medium, 2 smalls
Come to the Geek Side requirements: 1 large, 1 medium, 3 smalls
Embrace Your Consummate Geekitude requirements: As big as you want. If you are willing to do this we will try and partner you with someone else who is also willing.

I am already signed up for two swaps, but this sounds tempting. Maybe... I will definitely have to think about it.

I'll do my best to join I really want to! I've only just signed up for my first swap and we haven't yet got partners so I don't want to get too bogged down. Smiley
I'll keep my eyes open.

I'm seriously considering this.  I still have time.  Just can't make up my mind about what or how much I can make.

I'll do my best to join… I really want to! I've only just signed up for my first swap and we haven't yet got partners so I don't want to get too bogged down. Smiley

If you've just signed up for your first swap, you won't be eligible for another swap until you've completed your first.

Thanks! I have a feeling I knew this already, but I forgot. Smiley Guess I won't be able to do it. Our send-outs are in May so it won't be over in time. I'll try and follow the swap though.
