A few questions...I don't really need another stocking LOL  Would it be ok to mention that to my partner - I'd hate for them to spend a ton of time on the stocking itself when I have a set of themed ones we use already.

The swap sizes - do you have a rough idea of total hours (and/or dollar value) for the 3 different categories?  Or do we decide that with our partners?

You can have them make your stocking for someone else, and fill it with items for you... Maybe a stocking for a pet or friend would be something you would be interested in? Or maybe a stocking for work! (We exchange stocking stuffers here)

As for the swap sizes, I don't know that there has ever been hour or money guidelines (CORRECT ME IF I AM WRONG, Sevs!) but I would think that partners could decide what works best for them.

Question - for the check ins - do you mean by e-mail or PM, or will posting in the thread be sufficient?  If by the first two, will there be some reminder, because I probably will need reminders (damn my aging dying brain cells).  Otherwise, I am totally in!

We are doing PM checkins this year! And we always post reminders for the check-ins, otherwise I would probably forget too  Cheesy

Maybe I missed this but what is the deadline for sending your items? The date kind of determines whether I will be able to participate in this swap.

I am really tight on budget but think I can do a small, but pairing me will be difficult as I have started smoking again and have three cats. I love to do crafty things though and really want to make a stocking for a partners taste.

If anything has fabric, I can assure it will be prewashed and put away when not crafting. Actually thinking of moving some of the craft room upstairs, my entire house is a craft room.  I hope someone will want me.

Ok, I just sent in my questionnaire, and I want to start on this swap NOW!   Wink  (No matter that I don't have a partner yet, have a million things I need to finish first, you know....)  Cheesy

BTW...thanks for the idea list, Sevs!  If I think of anything, I'll post it.

This sounds like such a great idea!

I'm considering signing up for the Mini 12 days instead of the full, so I can do this one too!

Since this is a Christmas Stocking Swap, we are all required to make stockings - sorry!!  You could always donate the stocking to a shelter or something. Smiley

There are three size categories if you look at the description:  small, medium and large.  As long as you and your partner agree on the actual item size, you're fine.  I just define how many items must be included. Smiley

We will do checkins by PM!  We also like to see everyone active on the thread ofcourse, but as long as you keep in good communication with your partner and do your checkins, you're good to go!

Maybe I missed this but what is the deadline for sending your items? The date kind of determines whether I will be able to participate in this swap.

The sendout date is in the very first post and I have added it to the thread title:  November 20th.

Sorry, bad wording on my part.  I didn't mean to ask for no stocking (that would defeat the purpose of a stocking swap!), just that I would feel badly if my partner poured her heart & soul into it.

But I can decorate my studio with it Smiley  So never mind LOL

Thanks for the clarification about requirements.
