Details of swap:
Who wouldn't love something sweet and crafty to brighten up their kitchen?  In this swap we will be making 2-3 potholders for our partners.  Please indicate in your questionnaire whether you would prefer to make 2 OR 3. Potholders can be quilted/sewn, knitted, or crocheted.    

Swappers who are interested in swapping an additional item, such as a tea cozy, matching kitchen towel, or placemat, may indicate their interest in the questionnaire below. THIS IS NOT A REQUIREMENT.  It is just an option for those people who may be interested. I will attempt to match up people who are interested in this option, but I make no promises.  Swappers will be matched up first based on allergies & shipping, and then on swapping preferences.


As in all Craftster Swaps, DC#s are REQUIRED.

Posting pictures is required in this swap.  If you believe you will have trouble posting pictures for any reason, please mention this in the questionnaire below.  Please also take pictures of the items that you send, in case your partner has any unforeseen problems posting.

I reserve the right to refuse anyone. If you have feedback that shows a history of incomplete packages, very late sending, ill-communication, lack of DC #'s, lack of picture posting, etc. I may refuse you. I want this to be a flake-free swap!

For a wonderful swap experience, communication is the key.  Please keep in touch with your partner and your organizer.


Notes about Sending, Receiving, and Feedback
   SENDING: Take pictures of your items before you send.  When sending, you must use a DC# (or for overseas keep that receipt). Keep your receipt until your partner receives.  PM organizer and partner when you send.
   RECEIVING: PM organizer and partner when you receive.  Take pictures of received items. (Please take quality pictures, like ones you would take of your work.)  Post pictures in gallery in a timely manner.
   FEEDBACK: Given when both partners packages have been received (verified through PM or DC#) and pictures have been posted.  

NOTE: Lack of communication and explanation, such as no PMs of sending/receiving, will be noted in your feedback.  

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

Oooh I totally need some pot holders! Everytime I use a tea towel to pull out a tray from the oven I think "I should make a pot holder".
