My invitation to Brecken's Waves hoop class has been accepted!  It's time to prep for outdoor flow season with a swap!

Here is the link for the Run Away with the Circus swap, held in June 2010:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=350381.0

FLOW! is open to anyone who plays with toys, however skilled, or to anyone feeling inspired to learn.  Poi, staff, buugeng, hoop dance, unicycle, levistick, contact juggling, etc.  Gift ideas can include a variety of handmade toys and accessories, inspirational art, fire safety kits, tutorial videos, clothing, etc.  

There is no point system that must be followed this round, just let your ideas flow.  This works seemingly well for the other swaps I've organized and I'd like to try to keep it open to accommodate possible budget and crafting time limitations.  Be sure to pay attention to your partner's questionnaire though and to dedicate your full potential and energy to each gift you can offer.  While efforts can be made between partners to avoid a largely unbalanced exchange, it is important to understand and accept that such an outcome may occur regardless.

One other point I'd like to make clear is that your primary/"big'" gift must be:

A- crafted.  You are free to purchase extras but your main gift must be created by you.

B- created specifically for this swap and specifically for your partner.  This is obviously difficult to enforce but please wait until you know who your partner is and take the time to stalk him/her!  You'll be all the more thoughtful about your gift if you do.  With the freedom in the amount you craft and almost two months to create the main gift, this seems like a reasonable request to make.

If you would like to participate, complete and submit the following questionnaire to me, dreadlocklove.  Please include FLOW! in the subject line.

This sounds awesome! However, I'm not sure if Ill have feedback in time.  I go to several drum gatherings and love all the hoopla hooping, juggling, and poi balls. I think I have mastered the basic use of a hoola hoop and I am looking into buying a pair of sock pois. At Yule there was a young girl trying to teach me pois but my left arm didn't want to stay out of the way. LOL

I'm not sure, I have three swaps done. I think the organizers are still on vacation because they haven't responded to my emails.
I do not knit or crochet and I am new to sewing, so I would really have to think on what to make. However, I think this swap would be lots of fun!!
