I think it would also be helpful, if we list the crafts you are willing to teach, so that everyone can see what is being offered. 

I could teach:
- knitting
- crochet
- resin
- cake decorating

If I think of more I'll add to this Smiley

Oooh. I'm thinking about it. I had fun last round. I'm signed up for two big swaps over the summer, and I swore those would be the only two...but this one requires minimal crafting. I don't know if I can say no.

The crafts I want to learn are resin, silk screening, crochet, and I don't remember what else I put down. 

I have tried to crochet a few times and it took me foever to learn how to start a new chain, and then everything I made would get narrower and narrower the farther I went.  I was obviously missing a stich somewhere.  Plus all the patterns and such are quite confusing to someone who has no clue what they are doing!

Oh, I want to join this! but I am at my swap limit right now. I hope I will have a swap slot free before signups end. Also, would it be possible to have a list in maybe the second post that list a) the crafts people who have signed up can teach and b) the crafts that people who have signed up want to learn. That way it would be easier for the people signing up later to decide what would be good to offer and wish for. I know we used to have that in the DIY kit swaps before, like:

Crafts offered (number of people offering)
scrapbooking (3)
basic sewing (1)
knitting (2)
et.c.

Crafts wanted (number of people wanting)
needle felting (2)
knitting (1)
et.c.

Still wishing for a Tunisian crochet kit. Would be happy to personal swap for one. I have fabrics and all sorts of stuff to swap for.
