Questionnaire sent in - how could I miss up an altered puzzle swap?? Thanks Smmarrt for organising.

So these are supposed to be 8-10 piece puzzles? Isn't that pretty hard to find?
I really really love this idea, it's brilliant! But... I'm just a bit worried about all the postal-fees (being in europe) if there would be a lot of participants to send to. On the other hand, with only 3-4 to send to the puzzle would end up really tiny and I wouldn't know where to find such a one.

I am in Europe too and in past rounds, even though all my partners where in the USA, I did not find the postal fees too bad. The puzzle I am currently working on is a 1000 piece puzzle. I have joined 4, 5 or 6 pieces together to make them a size worth altering, but even so, I have a huge number of pieces. Some I am altering myself, some I am swapping and others I am getting family & friends to work on. I see it as an ongoing project!!  Smiley I will say however, it is very addictive once you get started!!

Aaiigh. Timing. But, I really, really, really want to do this one. If I can squeeze in and find a puzzle and get it prepped this week, then I will join. If I am too busy to even do that, then I will have to pass (*sob*).

Europeans, no worries, I will participate too, most likely. Belgium here Wink.

I have blanco puzzles. In hard cardboard... Is that okay too? Mine has 20 pieces... *sigh*

Any size puzzle is fine (see seeuudee's comments above). The sewing-themed puzzle (on first page) is a 64-piece kids dinosaur puzzle that I started last year. I made some pieces, I sent out a few to non-Craftster friends and some are from the first two Altered Puzzle Piece swaps.

As for groups - I hope to have 4 or 5 people in each groups so you'll be swapping and altering 8 to 10 pieces. In the questionnaire, it asks whether you want a small of large group. We'll see how sign-ups go and how many swappers sign up.
