As most know that NicoleMarie made Handy Quilted Dish Mat.  I was thinking why not do a Holiday Edition swap around this same awesome idea.  This is the perfect GREEN FOR THE ENVIORNMENT SWAP!! I organized the Original Swap back in August 2011. This is the perfect last minute gift for anyone for the holidays.  The fabric stores are having lots of sales ON HOLIDAY FABRICS, TRIMS, AND MUCH MORE and I am sure you can use up some of your scraps from completed projects.  

SIDE NOTE: PLEASE CHECK YOUR CALENDAR AND PLAN WISELY IF YOU WILL BE PARTICIPATING IN THIS SWAP!! THANKS IN ADVANCE!

- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Is at least 18 years old: YES

Swap Organizers will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:

- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- 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


SWAP DETAILS:

The idea is for each participant to make the Handy Quilted Dish Mat, 2 small or medium {crafted items} and 2 purchased items.  The Dish Mat would be no smaller than 20 in x 30 in size.  You can go the thrift store to purchase towels {they cost $1.99 to $3.99 each} to back the Handy Quilted Dish Mat.  The 2 small or medium must be crafted items ranging from potholders, dishtowels, scrubbies, washcloth, etc that coordinate with the Handy Quilted Dish Mat. The 2 purchased items could be cork stoppers, magnets, measuring spoons, etc.

In order to participant in this swap you must have access to a sewing machine to Quilt the Dish Mat {Dish Mat must be quilted} otherwise you can not participant in this swap. The 2 small/medium items can be crafted by crocheting, knitting, etc.

I reserve the right to refuse anyone. If you have feedback that shows a history of incomplete packages, very late sending, ill-communication, lack of DC #'s, lack of picture posting, etc. I may refuse you. I want this to be a flake-free swap!

**I would like for everyone to post in the thread at least once a week so we know you are alive and crafting.  This constitutes good communication and makes the swap more fun for everyone! **

For a wonderful swap experience, communication is the key.  Please keep in touch with your partner and your organizer.

Sending, Receiving, and Feedback

SENDING: Take pictures of your items before you send. When sending, you must use a DC# {or for overseas keep that receipt}. Keep your receipt until your partner receives. PM organizer and partner when you send.

RECEIVING: PM organizer and partner when you receive. Take pictures of received items. {Please take quality pictures, like ones you would take of your work.} Post pictures in gallery in a timely manner.

FEEDBACK: Given when a package is received {verified through PM or DC#} I will be keeping track of what has been received by gallery pictures {This is why it is important for you to take pictures of your items, just in case your partner does not} *Please PM if there is difficulty with pictures.*

I'd be OK waiting another week (and still shipping out the same time) for signups if we need more people. This is a fairly easy swap, one afternoon should take care of all the crafting necessary.

I agree, I have no problems waiting a little longer and getting it out on time.
