Please note in your questionnaire if you would like to craft more than the minimum and I will match swappers accordingly. Also, never forget to communicate with your partner on how much you would like to craft for each other. We are also going for quality here so make your crafts are fabulous!

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

ADDITIONAL INFROMATION:
Communication is vital for an enjoyable swap! Please post in this thread at least once a week so that we can all stay in touch. Get in touch with your swap partner as soon as possible after receiving your swap info. Please keep me informed if you have a problem or have a question. Im not a mind reader so I need you to tell me if you need something.  
Remember: The more details that you put in your questionnaire the more likely you are to receive a package you love and the easier it will be for me to match you up with someone who can make you happy.  
Another little note:
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.
Communicate often to your partner and in this thread, and I will send occasional PMs to make sure that everyone is on track. We want no flakers please!

Additionally, you *must* PM me & your partner when you send. You *must* get a DC# unless you are shipping internationally, then you must have a receipt as proof of postage -- no exceptions. And you *must* PM me & your partner when you receive. Also, please post pictures of what you received in the gallery. If you do not have access to a camera, please let your partner know so that they can take photos before they send and can post in the gallery for you. It is recommended that you take photos anyway in case things get lost in the post!

Wow, really - nothing? Hmm. I thought there was lots of interests in this. Maybe people are waiting because of the long sign-up period.

I'm sorry, the timing is bad for me too.  I'll be away for much of the crafting time.  I hope you get more people to sign up, though!  There was a lot of interest in the discussion thread...

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.

Looks like a lot of bad timing. Oh well, if no one signs up, I guess there will be no swap. We'll see what happens.

I know I indicated I was interested.  But that was before I read the rules for swaps.  Sadly, I'm too new of a user to get in on anything yet.  Sorry about that. 

I hope it takes off, though.  I'd really love to see some of the projects inspired by the Neverending Story!

I was so excited when I saw this swap because it's my favourite movie and book. But I am also a new user without any experiences in swaps  Undecided
I was hoping that lots of people sign up for this swap since I am really looking forward to all the things people come up with and create.

OMG I really want to do this...I'm on the fence. Its one of my fav movies of all time but I'm already in two swaps of 5 and 6 points each...Maybe if it were 3 points.

I think I am going to cancel this swap due to lack of interest. If anyone is planning on signing up, please let me know with in the next day so I can make the decision whether to cancel it or not. Thanks.

Really wanted to join this, but I am limiting myself to one swap at a time.

I had bookmarked because I was going to see if there was a gallery yet. Glad I did! I would be very interested if an attempt is made to do this swap again!  Wink

Whoa, I'm so sorry I missed this swap.. Neverending story is the best book ever! I hope there will be another swap with timing more accessible for other swappers Smiley

I'm sad to see this was cancelled.  I just came upon this, and am terribly sad about it!  If ever attempted again, I will totally participate!! =D
