Details of swap:
Do you like to embroider?  Would you love to have some cool wall art?  What about a funky pillow?  Something a little more classy on your walls?  What about a quilted wall hanging with an embroidered piece on it?   Then this is the swap for you!  You will be creating an embroidered panel that will be used as your partner would like - from simply hanging it on a wall to making it into a pillow or tote bag front!  Endless possibilities with an embroidered panel!
You will need to stalk your partner.  Based on their questionnaire and your stalking, choose a design (yours, a free one, bought, etc.) and stitch it!  The size of the finished embroidered piece when finished should be between 8x8 to 12x12. (i.e. 8x10, 8x12, 11x11, etc.)  Make sure you communicate with your partner! This is a relatively small swap, so we can have some quick and easy fun.

Rules and other info for this swap:
Once partners are assigned please post an update in this thread once a week. You don't have to write more than your crafting progress (status 50%) or even just "checking in", but you must post weekly.  Always keep in touch with the thread and your partner.  This will help stop flakers.

- If you will be sending late you MUST notify both me and your partner ahead!

- Delivery Confirmation must be purchased unless sending out of the country in which case you must get, and keep, a receipt. Please send me a picture of your receipt if you cannot do DC#s.

- When sending PMs please label them asEEPP Swap" + TAG with one of the following tags:
Approval
Sent
Received
Question

So when sending the questionnaire, the subject will read "EEPPSwap - Approval". When notifying me about sending and receiving packages, add the corresponding tag. If you just have a general question label it as that. This will keep things organized for me. Please do not forget the tag.

- I will set up a gallery once the first person has shipped. Please post pictures when your package arrives. Your partner put a lot of work into crafting for you! They deserve a little recognition! I will not leave feedback until pictures are posted. It is always a good idea to take pictures of your package before you send just in case your partner doesn't have a camera or cannot post pictures for some reason.

- FEEDBACK FOR THIS SWAP! This is how it will be done:
Great swapper: for those who follow all the rules
Good/Poor communication:where applicable
Sent late/early: where applicable
Did not follow shipping rule: failed to comply with the shipping rules
Didn't post pictures: failed to post pictures of what they received without an adequate explanation to their partner

Swappers will receive temporary negative feedback if:
- it is one week past send-outs and you are out of communication.
- It is two weeks past send-outs and you have not yet sent, regardless of the communication with me and your partner.

I really like the idea that the embroidered piece is used however the recipient would like. Smiley

Oh this sounds like a fun swap. I also like the idea that the recipient uses the piece however they choose. I have recently started embroidery, I picked up some books from the library a while back. I am a little bit beyond beginner, so I think this would be great project. I think I'm going to do this one.

I really love this idea and want to join.  I'm going to see if I can get one swap sent and another at least 1/2 finished though before I commit to this one.  I'm trying to cut down on stress by not subjecting myself to swap deadline overload so often.

I'm going to force myself to finish up a couple of swaps before I see if there are openings on this one.  I do so want to give it a shot though - I'm still a beginner - I only do a couple of stitches and have only done three projects.
