Welcome to the 2009 advent calendar swap!!!!




Date gifts will be opened together:
Daily, December 1 through December 24


I will require 4 months Craftster membership to be able to join this swap and 2 previous swaps with positive feedback.  No members with negative feed back will be permitted as this is a major swap.

If you wanna join, please pm me the following:
Which monetary category you would like to be in:

$40 and under (before shipping)
$40 to $80 (before shipping)
$80 and up (before shipping)

Willing to ship international? yes/no

What level of communication with your partner do you want?
- High - check in daily or several times a week
- Medium - check in once a week, minimum
- Low - check in less than once a week, but at least once every 2 weeks

I will post a questionaire closer to the closing date so that partners will be able to gather information.

Answers to the questions that have come up:
Hi everyone, I'll answer all above questions:

1: Overseas partners: sept 1st is deadline for surface, if you don't mind paying the extra funds for air, you could mail by October 1st.  

2:the actual calendar: calendar can be an actual calendar or each gift can be wrapped with just a number on it, the calendar can be as simple or as elaborate as you want.

3:the gifts: not every gift needs to be crafted, I would say of the 24 gifts, 6 crafted by you, 6 crafted by others (purchased at craft fairs and such, 6 kits (purchased or made) for your partner to make themselves, and 6 items purchased that share a little bit about the place you live, or supplies to be used for crafting.  I hope that helps, feel free to keep the questions coming.

Looking for Sophia the first fabric and Frozen fabric (preferably flannel, but would settle for cotton) and Phoomph.  I'm in Canada and the companies are that I could order from charge $20-$30 shipping, so if anybody can find some and wants to swap/sell, I would be eternally greatfull.

Wow there are a lot of variables in this.  I'll have to think about it.  There's no way I'm volunteering for an overseas partner if I have to send by September 1st.  No offense to anyone.  Smiley  That's like 3 weeks turnaround for a very large swap.

I feel the same way about international shipping on this one, too.  I was really excited at first, but I think I'm gonna have to think about it.  Maybe once the questionnaires come out.  Are we crafting all 24 gifts?

I would also need to know if we're crafting all 24 gifts before I decide whether or not to join.  Could we get a preview of the questionnaire to make deciding easier.  I'm sure we all want to be very sure that we can do this swap properly before committing to it.  Thanks!
