I really want to join a swap but none of them are for newbie swappers, so can someone please make a swap that allow newbies to join. Smiley

I second this request!   I am more than willing to wait the necessary month of membership before entering into swap, but I hope I don't have trouble getting accepted into one once my probationary period is over.  These sound like so much fun!   It would be nice if there was one targeted towards newbies so that we can sort of introduce ourselves and our crafting to the board.

I would be willing to organise this if people don't mind waiting until the very beginning of September - I've got a lot going on until then.
What themes would everyone be interested in?

Thank you, amycavy!   I wouldn't mind waiting for September.  My summer classes end this week, and my fall classes should be a few weeks in, so that is good timing for me. 

As for theme, I'm pretty open to anything.  I think it probably shouldn't be something too specific so that more people are encouraged to join.  What do you think about doing a buddy system sort of thing?  A newbie partnered up with a veteran, maybe?

The Swap Moderators run a Newbie Swap every couple of months.  I believe that we have one coming up in September or so. Smiley

Thank so much, I have been anxious to start a swap. I have no problem waiting till September.

As for the idea on the swap you can be as creative as you like, I'm just so happy to be apart of the  swap!

Most swaps allow newbies. Are you getting confused by this? http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=115208.0

I think perhaps Nialew was concerned by this.  I was just seeking a swap especially for newbies.  As I am a newbie, I didn't know that there was one for them every few months!

nialew, as a newbie you may participate in most of the swaps that are on Craftster!

But the Newbie Swap is for new swappers only Cheesy 
It's supposed to be a low-stress intro to swapping sorta deal Smiley

Its nice to start out with a whole group of people who are new to swapping, someone will always ask the questions that everyone is secretly wondering about Smiley  Plus with a swap mod to guide you it is a great way to learn what is involved (and how to be a fabulous swapper Cheesy) throughout the entire process.
