1 - This swap is NOT chain style.  You may choose from anyone's list once they are posted.

Quote
7 - It is possible that you may not be claimed at all.  In that case, you will not receive a swap angel.  Swap angels will only be provided if you are flaked on.  If you are flaked on, you will only receive an angel for as many packages as you have sent.  If you were claimed for 3 packages and you sent 2 packages and one package was flaked on - you would not receive a swap angel.

(The quotes are from the swap rules.)

I had the impression that this swap was going to work as a chain like the ongoing wish swap or the ATC swap.  Undecided So it's possible that during all the months you can claim many times but you will not be claimed even once...? Have I understood this correct?

I had thought the same thing Kitiza. I'm thinking we are all nice enough folk that no one is going to claim a bunch of times without getting claimed, but I wouldn't expect it to work out entirely even between getting claimed and making claims. Undecided

I know that if someone was at 0 claims and everyone else had been claimed, I'd be more likely to choose the person who hadn't been claimed.  Now, that means I might have to send off a PM first to inquire whether I had the crafty skills to make something they would love....if I didn't see anything on their Pinterest.

Yep, even though we're nice people I'm sure it won't be all the time fair for everyone. Sad And it also makes me think about my pins - are there enough different kind of items (and interesting items) that people will claim me even once? I only pin items that I really would like to have and I wouldn't want to pin some things that I only kind of want just to get claimed.

Proof that we're nice people. Grin But I still think that in the end it won't be totally fair for everyone. I would definitely prefer swapping in chain...

I forgot something on my questionnaire that I sent to Sevs, and can't figure out what it is, ahhh! She didnt tell me, just "one tiny thing" and a smiley face.
I know I havent swapped since 2008, but I didnt think I was that rusty!

Modus Operandi - Did you post in the "official" swap discussion/gallery thread?
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=392106.0
Sevs wants a post there prior to approval.

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

I did make a change to the swap that everyone must make at least one claim.  The Birthday swap does say the same thing. Smiley

luckdragon - thanks for pointing Modus in the right direction! Cheesy

Modus - I did the same thing!  I had to go back and very VERY slowly re-read the swap thread to find out what I didn't do.
