Details of swap:
Have you ever wanted to swap for all the crafts you’ve been lusting over – but can’t make yourself? This swap’s for you! For the craftsters who can knit, but can’t sew, can bead, but can’t papercut, can do polymer clay, but can’t stencil… gather round!
For this swap, you need to list the crafts you’re good at and the crafts you’d like to swap for. PLEASE
list as many in each group as you can, because this is going to be a very complicated parternering process, and the more information I have, the easier it will be – and the better your partners will be matched! For each category of craft you’d like to receive, provide three examples or hints of crafts you’ve liked, in addition to your questionnaire answers. I highly encourage further communication and stalking between partners, but this will at least give your partner a jumping point to go from. You are welcome to make this exact craft for your partner, but you are also welcome to take it as inspiration to plan a new craft from based on their tastes.
Due to the nature of the swap, please don’t decide to “try to learn a new craft” for this swap. This is about working with crafts we’re already skilled with.
To be explicitly clear, newbie swappers are welcome on this swap, but you must fulfill all of the swapper conditions.
This swap will be a FIVE POINT SWAP. At least one of these crafts must be a medium or a large; you cannot send five smalls. (For example, you could swap 1 large, 1 medium, or 1 medium, 3 smalls, or 1 large, 2 smalls.)
Points: Large - 3, Medium - 2, Small - 1
Swap size guidelines:
This is a guideline ONLY: a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost:
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less
