Details of swap: (thanks to Dulcinea!)
This is a swap for the geezers.  The idea here is that we've all been crafting for eons, and are pretty good at what we do.

This is also a swap where there is a sizeable commitment, both for time, and resources.  We are going to be crafting one really big, really nice item for our partner.  If you cannot commit to the time or resources, please consider carefully before signing up for this swap.

You'll make up a list of 5-10 large things that you would love if someone made for you.  You'll also make up a list of 5-10 things that you're really good at, that you'd love to make for your fellow geezers.  And if you can make it from your stash, and reduce the stash, making room for more, NEW stash, so much the better.  

What's a large item, you ask?  generally, we're talking something that takes 3 or more hours, is large in physical size, or costs $30 or more in materials (or any combination of those).

You need to post to this thread, so that it comes up as unread replies if I have something to tell y'all.

I will not tolerate flakers.  We all will have two months to craft and send out.  That should be enough time.  A DC or Customs number is required, if available.  If you do not have a DC or Customs number, you MUST send me a scan of your postal receipt, showing that the package was sent out.

If you are a week late sending (after the sendout date), you will receive a temporary negative.  This will be changed back to In Progress upon proof of sending.

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

Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 13 years old (yes/no)
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country (You MUST be willing to ship air postal or an equivalent which will take a maximum of 3 weeks.) Are you willing?

Here are the things I would love to death if someone made for me (don't forget to include color and size preferences, and link if an example or the pattern is out there on the web)

Which one would you want the most? (that's right, you have to pick one):

Here are the things I'm really really good at, and would love to make for my fellow geezers (don't forget to include link if an example or the pattern is out there on the web):

Oh, dear! I've been so occupied with what I could offer, I never thought about what I'd want, lol.

Does anyone do simple woodworking? I would like a crafty table for in front of TV, that I could sit on the floor and use. But NOT with X legs, but maybe hinges on the ends and folds under table. table top 30 x 40? Or legs push up into holes under table ends - like legos?

lol, now I really have to think . . .

knitting looms, embroidery machines, weaving,  knitting software~all discounted!
