Details of swap:

The Advent swap is a huge swap with lots of responsibility and trust. You are to send your partner a gift to open each day of Advent, December 1 - 24. And a slightly larger gift or stuffed stocking for Chrstmas day. Included in each gift should be a daily inspirational quote, maybe a joke, recipe, that kinda thing. You can number the gifts so the recipient knows which one to open which day, or let them choose which one they want each day.

No members with multiple negative comments will be permitted as this is a major swap.

If you wanna join, please pm me the following:
Which monetary category you would like to be in:

$40 and under (before shipping)
$40 to $80 (before shipping)
$80 and up (before shipping)

Willing to ship international? yes/no

What country do you live in?

What level of communication with your partner do you want?
- High - check in daily or several times a week
- Medium - check in once a week, minimum
- Low - check in less than once a week, but at least once every 2 weeks

I will post a questionaire closer to the closing date so that partners will be able to gather information.

Answers to the questions that have come up:
Hi everyone, I'll answer all above questions:

1: Overseas partners: October 1st is deadline for surface (lots of things can be made in advance, if you don't mind paying the extra funds for air, you could mail by October 31st.  

2:the actual calendar: the calendar can be made out of any materials you choose but shoud help your partner  keep track of how many days until Christmas

3:the gifts: not every gift needs to be crafted, I would say of the 24 gifts, 6 crafted by you, 6 crafted by others (purchased at craft fairs and such, 6 kits (purchased or made) for your partner to make themselves, and 6 items purchased that share a little bit about the place you live, or supplies to be used for crafting.  I hope that helps, feel free to keep the questions coming.  Candy is also a nice touch.

Hm....time to think about Christmas already!  Too early...this sounds like a fun swap.  I'll probably sign up closer to the end when I have a swap spot open!  Smiley

I LOVE the sound of this swap, but it is a huge commitment and I know that I won't be able to sign up unless other people from the UK do, otherwise the postage cost will be huge! I can't believe I'm thinking about Christmas already!

What a fantastic swap, but I second your feelings Jadore. I am in the UK too and think that international shipping could get very pricey. I am definitely going to think about this one!

I think I will sign up for this one...it seems like a biggy but think of all the extra pressies you'll get at Christmas too!   Grin

Plus, I'm in Scotland so it means more UKers to keep the postage down.   Cheesy

I'm so glad there are other UK swappers interested, that makes me so much more tempted! I don't know if I can resist signing up now!

last year I swapped with Holistic Knitter, and to keep costs down, we planned to ship really early, and made lightweight, foldable items!

Hmmm...this sounds like a fun swap.  I probably wont sign up until the questionaire for partners are posted though.  That way I can look it over and contemplate how I want to fill it out.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.
