Discussion thread for IYP17
Gallery for IYP17!!

(Description shamelessly taken from previous IYP swap - thank you Goldfishpollywog and SuperHooker!!)

Heres how it works:

In this swap, you can contact anyone and ask them to be your partner. It's almost like a personal swap, but with a group, and a killer gallery! You will have to sign up with your partner. That is, you must contact your potential partner via pm and you both must mutually agree to be partnered together. Once you have a partner, each of you must pm me ((gatheredthreads and sweety28303))   with your information, and after doing all the necessary double checking, I will post you both together as participants and add this swap to your "In progress" feedback.

Swappers may have two partners this round! However, if you have any instances of 'poor swapping' documented in your feedback (such as 'no communication' 'did not craft in the spirit of the swap') or numerous instances of sending very late, I ask that you only craft for one partner. You may have no more than two partners.

As partners, you will choose if you want to have a theme, if you want to post stalk each other and be surprised, or if you want to request from each other things you have admired in the past. You should also agree on quantity. I would suggest one "large" (time consuming and/or valuable) item, and a couple of "small" (quicker to craft) items that you know your partner will like. Unless you choose otherwise. Feel free to start crafting for your partner as soon as you are both officially signed up!

If you want to participate, but you are a bit shy of just asking someone, you can PM gatheredthreads and sweety28303, and you'll be put on a list of "Potential Partners" in the next post, so people can choose from craftsters that are interested.

 RULES:
swappers will receive temporary negative feedback if:
- it is one week past send-outs and you are out of communication
- it is two weeks past send-outs and you have not yet sent, regardless of the communication with us and your partner.
- you cannot sign up for this swap if you are still currently late in any IYP swaps.

Even if you decide with your partner that you are sending late and she/he says its alright, you MUST send by two weeks past the send out date or this will be reflected in negative feedback. once you do send, you will have positive feedback again, BUT this late sending will be reflected in your comments even if you communicated.  

THIS IS A VERY IN DEPTH SWAP AND WE ARE TRADING WITH PEOPLE WE LIKE. PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY AND BE READY TO SEND ON TIME!

ONE NOTE: It is a little scary to ask someone to be your partner. Some people may have someone else already in mind, or they may not have the time or funds to participate right now, or they may just not be interested. We need to remember to be nice if we feel we need to refuse someone, and to not take it personally if someone else turns us down.

Here's what you need to do:

1. Contact your partner (make sure they're in good standing, swapwise), and agree to join together
2. Both partners must PM gatheredthreads, sweety28303 and each other with mailing information.  Please also send your mailing info to your partner.
3. Post in this thread so I can keep up with you!
4. Make sure you can mail on time, and provide organizers with a DC number when you do.
5. PM your partner and organizers when you receive as well! Your partner CANNOT get feedback unless you PM us. Thank your partner both in a PM and publicly in the gallery. If you are unable to post pictures, please let your partner know before they send to you. In this case, you still need to post in the gallery about what you received.
6. Lack of PMs to organizer and your partner will be noted in feedback!!!
7. Have fun!

Just sent a PM to be listed as a potential partner.  If I make the list and you chose me I could make you something sewn, poly clay, beaded jewellery, something off-beat and dorky or would try my hand at most things.  Happy to work to specs or be a stalker. Just need to get crafting.

I think I have 2 partners ~ this is fun!

Is anyone interested in co-organizing if we go over 25 people?
