It's that time of year again!  

Since this swap is usually so popular, I think I'd like to have signups Sept. 7th - 21st and then have sendouts no later than Nov. 20th.  What do you all think?

Requirements:  We will each make/decorate a 12-16" tall stocking (cuff to heel) and fill it with goodies.  We will make/decorate and fill with our partner's tastes in mind.  Each stocking will have at least 50% crafted goodies, the remainder may be purchased supplies or items.  Each set of partners will make a decision as to how much and how large of items they wish to fill their stockings with.  There will be check-ins every two weeks, so please be prepared to check-in! Smiley It's a very long crafting period and we would hate to lose anyone along the way.  You may choose one of three sizes to do in this swap:
                      Small - concentrate on a fab stocking and fill with at least 3 crafted and 3 purchased items
                      Medium - do a great stocking and fill with at least 7 crafted and 5 purchased items
                      Large - aka Spoiler!  A great stocking and no end of goodies!!


We usually have anywhere from 40 - 70 swappers!  

It looks like I'll have two lovely co-organisers this year:  blushingbluegrass (returning from last year - what a trooper!) and lovesclutter (who is just lovely!).

I think that I would like this better than the 12 Days of Christmas swap, full or mini.

Last year, you could request a partner, and we organizers did our darndest to make it happen! There is a better chance of making it happen if you put multiple crafters on your request list.
