Yes! I'm starting work on my q'naire now.

ETA: Um, I was just filling it out when I noticed there's no question about allergens. There's one for allergies but not allergens  Smiley

People usually put if they have dogs and what not on that line but I added an allergen question.

This looks like fun!

I have a few questions, though. Since this is a vintage swap, are we crafting with vintage craft items (like vintage fabric, beads, etc.), or are we crafting vintage-inspired crafts? Also, would we be able to send genuine vintage items like a thrifted 70's dress, or something else like that?

Any and all of the above. I myself love working with vintage supplies. I also am always on the lookout for vintage magazines, I have a basket full of Life and what not from the 50's and 40's. I keep saying I will use them for something but the truth is I just like to read them.

You can also send things that your partner collects like hats, vintage inspired jewelry, perfume bottles. Personally I hope to get a few new things for my vintage vanity table display. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=336467.msg3892319#msg3892319 I love to alternate what I have out and get odd/different pieces that would have been common back then.

I will almost positively sign up for this, but I have to A) consult the finances and B) consult the fiance. I have a free summer for once, though, and need something to spend it doing

I was definitely hoping for an excuse to do a little St Vinnies/Oxfam spree, there are so many charity shops near where I am. Plus, at the local auction house weekly sale you can always pick up some bargains for repurposing. Grin

I love your bedroom scarlet_nights and am coveting your dresser, dresser set and quilts.  Grin

Thanks I think its a fun guest room. The bed, dresser and vanity table were my great grandmothers and are from the 30's. I try and incorporate family pieces and have some of the only things we have left from my dads mom and my granny on display.

I'm very excited about this swap: it'll be really interesting to see what era the partner I get wants. I keep being tempted to get things and make things and have to remind myself to wait to make sure it's right! It's like a mini history project which makes the whole thing excellent in my books.
