Details of swap:
This swap is for making felted items out of fiber via the methods of wet felting, needle felting, or related techniques. This swap is NOT for items made of craft felt, or for items which are knit/crocheted from yarn and fulled, although craft felt or fulled knits can be incorporated into the project. The main crafting effort should be feltmaking, so a needlefelted painting worked onto a craft felt background would be fine, but a knitted and fulled bag with a small needlefelted heart in the corner would not be in the spirit of this swap. Please see the Felting Boards
and/or pm the organizer if you are confused about exactly what feltmaking is before joining this swap.
We will craft one Large and one Small item for this swap. A large item might be a felted scarf or a needlefelted sculptural doll; a small item might be wet felted beads or a needlefelted coaster. There is a long crafting time (one month), and I am going to be strict about the sendout date - please do not sign up for this swap if you are likely to be sending late. There will be two mandatory check-ins for this swap, one during the first week of crafting to be sure that you have been able to communicate with your partner, and one in the final week of crafting. If you do not respond to the check-in pm request within one week for either check-in, you will receive a note of "poor communication" in your swap feedback. All packages sent domestically within the US must be sent with Delivery Confirmation, and the DC number must be pm'd to both the organizer and the recipient. For all packages sent internationally, the receipt must be saved as proof of shipping. If you fail to get Delivery Confirmation or to save your receipt, this will be noted in your swap feedback. Swappers shipping more than five days after the sendout date will have a note of "Sent Late" in their swap feedback.
