Details of swap:

Time to pair up with a Papercrafter/Yarnie/Sewist and swap something you can do for something you would love to own. We all have our talents and this swap is about busting out our skills in our chosen craft. This is not the swap for you if you're looking to try something new. As people sign up they will be listed as either Paper/Sew/Yarnie so we can keep track of how many of each category we have.

Crafting Requirements:
Since each of the crafts differ greatly there will be a basic requirement of one Medium and 2 Smalls and it's up to you to confer with your partner as to the level of spoilage  you have time/money/supplies for Wink

For those who need a refresher, here's the Craftster guide to what constitutes each size:

By Time

-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less


Communication Requirements:

Checking in on the swap thread at least once a week is required so we know you're still around and crafting!  A quick note saying that you're still working is sufficient.

If you want to participate, PM the following information to the organizer (Mink_Bikini):

Please supply as much info as you can, the better supplied we are with your likes and dislikes, the better we can pair you with your perfect(ish)partner

I  tried to keep the sendout dates early so they wouldn't interfere with the Christmas post but if people need an extra week then we have some time to play with regards extending. For the time being though 15th Nov is the deadline  Wink
