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.

Last round we had inter group partners, this time it's strictly Sewists/Yarnies being paired up with Papercrafters, too much of a headache to pair people up within their groups, it's another swap altogether  Wink

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

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

If I can get some decent progress done for my other swaps before sign ups close, then I want to join. This sounds like so much fun, but I really need to focus on my mini art quilt. Although I just noticed that send outs are in May for this one, hmm.....

This looks like a fun swap, but I'm not sure which team I would belong to.  Can I be in both and just craft for myself? hehe

Ha ha, last round we had people in both Teams i.e if you Crochet and Papercraft and want 2 partners you could totally do that, it's just difficult to pair up people from the same group, i.e Sewists wanting Yarnies, does that make sense?  Wink
