I wanted to make a list that I could copy and paste and has all the questions I could ever need to know about your partner to make something for any swap.  It sure would help when I get brain blockaged.

Please help by making suggestions,
or feel free to steal questions to ask your swap partner

random things
do you keep a journal/art sketch book?
do you have any pets?
do you have any kids *ages*?
do you have a portable CD player, mobile phone, or ipod?
do you need another random trinket box?
do you need something to carry your knitting/sewing with you?
do you need a CD case/folder thing?  *you know what I am talking about, it holds your Cd's*
do you need another purse?
what crafts do you do/want to do?
what crafts do you admire?
do you collect anything?

jewelry
do you wear earing's?
do you wear bracelets/cuffs?
whats your wrist size?
do you wear necklaces?
do you want gold or silver findings?

clothing
what is your shirt size?
what is your skirt size?
what is your trouser size?
what is your shoe size?
what is your bra size?
would you like some clothes made for you?

favorites
what is your favorite color?
what is your favorite color to go with your favorite color?
do you have a favorite animal you would like something made with?
do you have a favorite TV series you would like something made with?
do you have a favorite book you would like something made with?
What is your favorite food?
What is your favorite smell?

allergies and aversions
are there any colors you hate?
would you dislike receiving items made from animal products?
is there anything you would rather not receive because of religious references?
is there anything else you would dislike?
do you have any actual allergies?


personality
what are your favorite movies?
who is your favorite person from those movies?
who is the best dresser on TV?
who are your celebrity crushes?
who is the best cartoon character?

do you think all of these questions are silly because you know you will like everything made for you anyway?

It might be good to ask for bra size if it's applicable...and if they have any allergies or aversions, so you don't send leather to a vegan, etc.

I think a page like this would be great. I don't think the needs/wants should be on this page only things that aren't going to change too much ie. favorite colors, symbols, patterns... childres, pets, hobbies...People can make changes if they want and us who swap a lot don't have to answer the same questions over and over. I think the swap questionnaire should ask the needs/wants questions and more specific questions.

Religious questions? Not necessarily asking what a persons religion is but maybe...are u very religious? and then leave it up to the person to answer how they want to. Personaly for me, i'm an atheist so i wouldn't want anything with like quotes from the bible or pics of jesus. Not that i don't respect people and their religions i just don't want it for me. Wink

How about a question like "What crafts do you do/want to try?"  Then you can send supplies if it's the sort of swap that will allow that sort of thing.

I think the favorites might be more sueful if they were more general, like "Favorites songs/bands?", "Favorite Films?", "Favorite books?"
That way we can list more than one to make our personality come out a bit more so it's helpful even if the craft isn't specifically about our favorites.
