Swap name: The Wish Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Jas.ns
Sign-up date range: April 11th 2005 to April 29th 2005
Date to send item by: May 25th 2005

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional):Nope! The more the merrier (I know i said no limit, and there is no limit as long as we are even number of people...odd,no good, would get difficult to pair you with someone!)

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Ofcourse!

All ages allowed? Or 18+? Yea

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

Organizer has been a member for at least 1 month and will
make sure that every participant has been a member for
at least 1 month: YES

Details of swap:

Each Participant will come up with 2 lists.

List A: Wish List: Please list 3 items that you wish for in order of importance.(Please remember that you may not get your first wish fulfilled, so choose your wishes wisely! Please wish for something that you normally would not buy, dont know how to make and dont have access to. This way you get something really unique!)
List A:
1.
2.
3.

List B: Skills List: Please list 3 things that you know to craft in order of fluency with the skill. It would be knitting, sewing, or even paper crafts! Remember you will be paired up based on this list also.
List B:
1.
2.
3.

Wish for what you want and you'll get it!  :)This is going to be a one on one swap, so you make one item for another person and receive one in return! This is your chance to get something you've always wished for but never had the time to make it or go out and buy it.
Once I know what people have wished for and what they can make, Ill pair people up accordingly. Also, here it is not necessary that whoever u are making something for will end up making your item as well. You may be paired with someone who might not make your wish.
For example
A---> B
B----> c
C----->F
D----->E
E------>D
F------>A

A final list will be posted the first day after sign up is closed, and will tell each participant who they are paired up with. Once you know your partners details, I strongly encourage that you communicate with him/her to find out more about their preferences in terms of color, size, shape or anything you might think important. I assure you I will try and match people up appropriately to ensure that you get what you like.

I too would love something knitted because I can sew up a storm but can't knit or crochet  Undecided

For this swap, can we mention what our favorite colors are just to make things possibly a little easier for each other?

Hey all,
\I must say this is soo cool..i;ve gotten quite a few people signing up for this so far and it's exciting.

I would definitely encourage you ll to give as much info possible abt what you want, colors, shape, size etc, just makes it easier for you partner to make that for you.
So ofcourse, give your color prefernce.
Also After everyone is paired up, pls be in constant touch with your partner to findout bt thier preferences and let them know yours. That's really when you should give out more details!

So cool....we'll wait and watch how many people join this swap.
