Limited to a certain number of people? (optional):  49
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO, and you must be willing to send internationally. These will be letter sized packages with no DC numbers, so mailing will be relatively inexpensive.

- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES

- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old: YES
- Participant lives in the United States: YES and NO
   - If yes, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: These packages will be letter size and too small for Delivery Confirmation, but you MUST be willing to resend if a package is not received in order to get positive feedback.
   - If no, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: See the note about delivery confirmation.


Details of swap:
Inchies are tiny little works of art. They are exactly 1" by 1". When grouped together make a wonderful work of art. For this swap, each person will make an alphabet - 26 letters, A to Z. You will then send various letters to different people within your group. Each group will consist of 6 people. The sending system will be as follows:

AGMSY   S#1> S#2>S#3>S#4>S#5>S#6>S#7>S#1
BHNTZ    S#1>S#3>S#5>S#7>S#2>S#4>S#6>S#1
CIOU   S#1>S#4>S#7>S#3>S#6>S#2>S#5>S#1
DJPV   S#1>S#5>S#2>S#6>S#3>S#7>S#4>S#1
EKQW   S#1>S#6>S#4>S#2>S#7>S#5>S#3>S#1
FLRX   S#1>S#7>S#6>S#5>S#4>S#3>S#2>S#1

This will insure that the styles in the alphabet are mixed up a bit.

All you would ever want to know about a inchie here - thanks Phizzychick for writing that up
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=303188.0

With send outs of 4/21 you can start right away BUT bear in mind that you may be partnered with someone(s) who require a family/child friendly set. That will be explained more in the questionnaire. All mediums are welcome.  Inchies need to be on a sturdy base such as card stock, cardboard, water color paper etc. If you plan to make fabric inchies please make sure they are stiffened with interfacing or some other medium.

When shipping your inchies, please take care to protect them. Have them enclosed in a notecard of some sort or an inside envelope. If they have a lot of texture or 3D material, please be aware that they may require more postage if they cannot go through the sorting machines. Check at the post office if you are concerned.

Pictures are required.  Some like to post pics as they receive and others like to post after they received all of them.  You may use a camera or a scanner.  

(This post is a plagarization of goatgoddess from past Inchies Swaps Smiley )

When sending pms to the organizer please have the following on the subject line: Alphabet Inchies

I just sent in my info! I can't wait for partners! I don't think I'll start until then to see what sort of inchies I need to make. I'm asking for naughty words/images on each inchie, but if there isn't a naughty word to go with that letter then a silly word that makes you giggle when you say it. Something that maybe sounds a bit naughty even if it is perfectly innocent.  Cheesy Like pith, exacerbated,zucchini,quinsy.... the options are endless!

Just filled and sent out the questionnaire Smiley

This swap sounds like a lot of fun and will definitely be getting the creative juices a-flowing once partners are received! I'm looking for kid friendly and possibly Winnie-the-Pooh inspired inchies so that I can mat and frame them in my baby boy's room, he needs more things up on his wall as they're pretty barren right now >_<

Always, your silly words inchies sound like a great set, too! Maybe if there's another round to this swap in the future, I'll be using that theme ^_~

What are you other potential partners thinking of for your sets?
