Swap name: UK Only swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  mini_mum
Sign-up date range: April 15 - 30 2012
Date to send item by: May 31, 2012

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional):  24 unless someone co-orgs

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? YES
If so, which country? United Kingdom

Age requirement? 18

Pre-swap discussion for this round:

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES
- Is at least 18 years old: YES/NO

- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES/NO
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES/NO

Details of swap:

This swap is to make a wonderful item for your partner. If partners agree you may send a couple of tiny extras, but they are not required and you must check with your partner to see if it is ok. This going to be a medium (3 point) swap so you can do either 1 medium item or 3 small items, although if both partners agree you can go larger, but NOT smaller.

a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost:

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewellery with four to five items, a purse (handbag)
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets (purse!), pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less (about 6.30 currently)

Since this is a longer swap (1 month crafting time) I want everyone to know that they need to keep in contact both with the organize and their partner. Im not going to implement anything as rigid as weekly check-ins, but post try to post to the thread at least every  week and please dont leave your partner or myself hanging if we pm you!

Please make sure you post in this thread for updates as soon as you sign-up/think about signing up.  

*I will leave accurate feedback regarding sending on time, meeting swap requirements, and having good communication with organizer and partner. My definition of good communication is sending pm's to both organizer and partner when BOTH sending AND receiving, answering pm's from organizer and partner in a timely manner (within 1 day), and letting organizer and partner know if you will be out of town or if you know you will be unable to communicate for a set amount of time.

*Organizer reserves the right to refuse entry to the swap based on poor performance in previous swaps with this organizer or poor feedback on swapper's profile.

If you want to participate, please send information to mini_mum by PM and dont leave it here

You must answer all questions! And please list AT LEAST 5 themes where 5 themes are asked for.    Thanks!

Name of swap:  UK only swap
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name and Mailing address including the country, formatted for shipping:

Confirm that are at least 18 years old (yes/no)

Do you understand that proof of posting must be obtained when you send?  

Please state that you understand that communication is very important in this swap, and you need to stay in touch with the organizer and your partner("poor communication" feedback will be given accordingly).

What crafts do you do?

What crafts would you like to receive?

Please list at least 5 themes/ideas/items that you would like to receive

Anything you really dont want to receive? (include items, colours, materials etc)

Do you have a pinterest/wist/other wishlist? If so please list here:

Are you someone that really wants to have one of these themes crafted for you, or are you ok if your partner does a little stalking to come up with other themes you might like?

Are you someone that is really helped by having a set list to craft from, or do you prefer to be a little freer and do some research/stalking?

Do you have any allergies severe enough to prevent you from being partnered with someone?

Do you have allergens like pets (list specific animal please) or smoking in your house?

Anything else you would like your partner to know?


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.
