I am rereading through the Wheel of Time series now. What a great series!! I could see myself whipping up some crafty goodness relating to the series. There are so many rich possibilities for ideas since Robert Jordan's world is so complex! I saw that there were suggestions for this swap earlier, but none actually happened, so here I am, trying again.

I could do it in July or later probably....
I've never organized a swap but I probably could if no one else offers.

So...who's interested? Cheesy

Yes! I'm reading the most recent one, I let my friend borrow the others so I can't reread yet. These are my favorite books ever! I've seen some beautiful Aes Sedai shawls, I would love to do this. Later would be better, and I could organize... if its after my first one I'm doing at the end of May. Sendouts for that one would be the beginning of July, so maybe the end of July? Or earlier if someone else could organize. I really, really want to do this!

I know I just posted, but I started having heart palpitations over this swap! I would be available any time since I pretty much always have an open swap slot. I'd wonder about giving things away, though, to those who may not have read the whole series?

Hmm thats a good point!

(But if you star the series and love it enough to enter the swap how can you NOT have read all the books?! Smiley )

Anyway, we can probably put a question in the survey about the latest book they've read.
Hm, and there would have to be some sort of rule about the swap gallery as well.

Well, I'm sure if the swap gets going, we can work out the rules to everyone's satisfaction Smiley

Hmm... either I fail at searching or I see a distinct lack of Wheel of Time crafts. A few I did find:

And a few other rings here and there...

 I'm also reading the newest book and love it - I've never done a swap though I would be into giving this one a try.

I love these books, but am struggling to imagine crafts that could be made, beyond Aes Sedai rings, shawls, or pieces of cuendillar, which makes it difficult to imagine actually joining the swap...

Those are all good ideas....

You could also make angreal, sa'angreal, ter'angreal, something out of the chapter headings, Rand's dragon tattoo, something with the map of the world, portraits/dolls of the characters, aiel garb, things based on house colors/sigils,  there are so many things!!!

But of course, it is up to you whether you join Smiley

Well, if this happens my partner is definitely getting an Aes Sedai shawl, I have a perfect pattern in mind already. I was also thinking a mini-Rand or other character crocheted up (or sewn, or knitted, or whatever) would be awesome. I agree with Aiel garb, that would be awesome... and Rand tattoos! Also book safes (I would never deface a real one, but a fake one wouldn't be out of the question), Nynaeve's jewelry.

Ooo, how about a damanae bracelet (ummm.... can't remember what they're called, and I can't remember how to spell damanae) in miniature where the bracelet is a ring and the necklace is a bracelet ala slave bracelets (that may or may not make sense... I'm way tired right now)

Awesome--let's make this happen! I haven't done a swap yet, but would love for this to be my first (it would be fitting considering WoT were my first favorite books.) Cheesy

I'm interested too, though I've never done a swap before... Maybe I'll practice until the swap starts, then I can see if I feel up to it!  I'm starting book 4 this week in my reread Smiley

Ugh, I wish I could just organize this right now, but it would be my first and we wouldn't be done by the end of May when I promised to host the Steampunk swap! Oh well, I'll just have to make stuff for myself in the meantime...

Until then, we could set up a craftalong so we can all brainstorm ideas! Maybe even do a book a month sort of thing where we craft something based on the book. I might post something later!

Can people do  it now? I can probably organize now, but I'm moving at the end of May. So if its over before then, or after then, then thats fine...Any opinions?

This sounds like so much fun. . . but  I am having a baby in July and I don't know if I could have the time/attention/energy to do it. Sad

Please extend it worldwide? I'm in Australia and would love to do this swap! I lived off wheel of time growing up, I was convinced I was going to become Aes Sedai Smiley I'd love to make some angreal I think, I made a little wheel of time charm bracelet a few weeks ago, I think I'll post it up now Smiley

Alchamy513, a craftalong would be a great idea if no one has the time to swap just yet...

I would so love to do the swap and July time would be great for me as I will be on my summer holiday!!! I love WoT but I've still got to read the latest one. I hat being a student and having to spend very carefully!! Although I'd probably only do this if there was another UK person I could swap with as International postage is just too much for me. Sad

I would join! Particularly if it's later in the summer. My wedding is a month away and I'm missing out on all these great swaps right now.

Since it is so far into the future and I'm super busy right now, could a beg a PM off someone when this opens up?

MEMEME!YESYESYES! Although this would be my first swap, I can't think of a better way to start. Unfortunately, during a recent flooding of my apartment, all of my books were destroyed and I've been unable to replace them yet, so I'd have to go by memeory. Still, Yippee!

There is a great re-read going on at the tor site, which has great summaries for the chapters, and some interesting commentary and discussion in the comments following.  I think it's great for a nice detailed recap if you've already read the books before and either don't have the time or don't have the books nearby.

I'm absolutely interested. I read the whole series some years ago, and I tell ya, It really inspired me, art-wise.  Bigtime.  This would be a great outlet!

I'm definitely interested! Would it be possible to PM me when this swap opens as I always forget to check the swap boards. Also I hope there is another person from the UK wanting to do this as I will only be able to afford to send within the UK! Smiley

Hey all,

I am done moving and am somewhat settled in. I can organize it now, though it will be my first time, so be easy on me! What about signups until June 28th and sendouts by July 28th? That gives a month. How big should it be? 1 large, 1 medium, 1 small seems to be a pretty standard size? There can be extras if people want?

Any takers? : )

Thanks minathia!

There are no other replies so I'm not sure if other people would be up for it. I guess I could just start the signup thread and see what happens? What do people that still read this think? (I am organizing for the first time, so sorry if I ask too many silly questions!)

I'd be signing up more towards the end if you start now... I'm planning on starting my first swap soon as well and so I'd need 2 open spaces. That's just me though, I'm almost done with two of my swaps and I sent a third yesterday so I should be getting feedback in a bit. I don't want to miss it, but whenever you start it is fine with me!
