Details of swap:


Do you feel like you're stuck crafting the same six things for yourself, friends and family? Getting into a crafting rut? Want to find something new, fun, and exciting to craft, or a new theme to put your crafting skills to good use?

This is the swap for you!

This is a 5 point swap, requiring at least one medium item.

How it works:
Below is a list of 10 themes. Pick your top 3 preferred themes you'd like to *recieve* crafts from.

Then, list all the themes you aren't familiar with, have never crafted for, or have always wanted to craft, just not for yourself.

Example: Fantasy lover who's always wanted to knit baby stuff, but has no baby to knit for.
OR
Video game geek who really wants to make some upcycled/green items.
OR
Mom with some time on her hands and wants to try steampunk jewelry making.

The idea is to get you out of your crafting comfort zone, and put your talents to the test!

THEME CHOICES:
1. Video Games
2. Fantasy
3. Baby/Kids
4. Kitchy/Retro
5. Creepy
6. Kawaii
7. Green/Upcycled
8. Steampunk
9. Sci-Fi
10. Country

THIS SWAP RELIES HEAVILY ON PARTNER-TO-PARTNER COMMUNICATION! It will also probably require some research into your partners themes.

Because your partner is crafting for an unfamiliar theme, a wist or equivalent is required. Please touch base with your partner about relevant measurements, sizes, etc. (If you have a toddler and don't want to recieve newborn sized items, for instance!)

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

Awesome! I totally need to do this. I just need to make sure I have the time, then I'll so be sending in my questionnaire. I'm always feeling like I'm in a rut doing the same thing over and over again.

Oh wow, this sounds really neat! I think I'll wait a bit for a couple of my current swaps to close up before I decide officially to jump in, but I'm loving this idea!!

Ohh, I love the idea for this... I haven't swapped for a while (too long) and I want to get back to it... This is a big swap though so I have to reflect on it a little but it's definitely high up on the list. Also, I'll have to do a little research in order to fill out the questionnaire.

Hmmmm, I love the idea for this swap but it will be a bit time-consuming and I'll be going back to work soon. I have to think about it.
