Details of swap: (copied from H&H round 1)

This is the Handspun & Handcrafts Swap!! This swap will pair up spinners and non-spinners (hereafter referred to as crafters, not because spinners are not crafters, but to keep things simple), to swap handspun and other crafts with each other.  Spinners will make beautiful yarn for their partners and Crafters will make beautiful crafts for their partners.    Please discuss with your partner to determine level of effort: as a general guideline, spinners will make a skein of yarn for their partner, and crafters will make one large and 2 small items for their partner (of course, both a "skein" and a "large/small item" are really relative terms, which is why you need to communicate with your partner). You can do more than this of course if you both agree to do so.

You will sign up either as a Spinner OR a Crafter, please use the appropriate questionnaire below.

If more crafters than spinners sign up, the swap will be limited to the number of spinners (and vice-versa). Participants will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis (sign up early!).

I am anticipating that there will be more crafters sign up than spinners. Therefore, spinners who have successfully completed at least one swap may choose to take two partners if desired, and crafters will be limited to one partner, to ensure that more people get a chance to participate.

I just used the requirements and everything from the original swap, which states that spinners will send one skein of yarn, and crafters will send 1 lg and 2 small items... PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF CRAFTSTER, communicate with your partner to figure out what you want to do.

Oh, and please please please fill out the questionaire well, because I'll be using it to match people's preferences.  If you only want super bulky yarn, be sure to write that, so I don't match you with a spinner who only spins lace weight!!!
