There have been tons of a vs b type  swaps this year and I thought it would be fun to do a sewing vs hoopla vs yarnies swap. You would list which group you'd want to craft for and if you can do more than one list them in order of preference. Then we'd be partnered in groups of three. If you sew, you'd sew one medium for each partner or if you do hoopla, one hoop per partner, etc. then each group would have 2 of each type of craft between them! You would receive one of each craft you don't do (or aren't crafting yourself) so a sewer would receive a hoopla and yarn item.

I was thinking sign ups in January. Any takers?

I might be up for something like this. I'll have a lot more crafting time after the holidays are over, and I've always been a little curious about the a vs b type swaps so this sounds like a fun way to try one out.

Great! I will work on the Q, and post sign ups sometime either the last week of Dec, or the first week of Jan, and have them run 2-3  weeks, and give us a 4 week crafting time. Sound good?

Ooo, this sounds like fun! I admire all 3 crafts so much but can only really do sewing. Sign-ups starting in late Dec. gets my vote 'cause then I might get a bit more use out of any cold-weather accessory a yarnie might send me.  Smiley

Kbrison: I can do all three, too, so that gives playing room for  partnering Smiley

Calabaza: With you sewing and me doing all three, we may *finally* be partnered up! 

I have my best friend and her family (7 of them in total!) coming in for Christmas (it's been 3 years since I've seen them), so I will need a few days to recover back my small-ish house, although, the end of Dec is most likely do-able for starting sign ups.

Yay! It's been like the swap-partnering-slot-machine has been rigged considering how many swaps we've been in together.

Oh, so cool! I'm glad it's been a good year for you and getting together (or planning to get together) with people. I hope you guys have a great time!

I'm brainstorming what I want to include on the Q, and I was wondering, would you guys prefer a 6 pt swap (3 crafted points per partner---being one large) OR  a 4 pt swap (2 crafted points per partner---being one medium)? I'm going to make this a no extras swap because I want us to just have the time to work hard on the one project per partner, and to minimize shipping costs.   Also, I'm going to need to have all participants agreeable to shipping at least one package internationally.   This doesn't mean that will be the case, but in order to make partnering easier taking in account allergies/allergens and which craft people do.  Being as it will be one item to each partner, unless you make something humongous, shipping shouldn't be too expensive even if out of country. And, if you decide to sew something like a pillow, you can always write you partner to see if you can send it unfilled to help save on shipping. Etc.    Anyway, thoughts on the point preference?? Thanks!

Hmmm.....I'm never very good with the sizes, being a yarny, its hard.  I'm thinking mediums maybe??  Actually, it depends on timing, if we have 5 weeks at least, then we should be able to do larges.  If its 4 or less then mediums I think

I would probably say mediums as well. It is hard with yarn to do points. Most things are automatically longer than 2 hours, unless your talking dish scrubbies or baby hats  Undecided

My vote goes to two mediums. I'm going to be in several other swaps then and I'm sure that's the same for many of us. Keeping it at two mediums means more people may be interested in joining.

My out-of-town guests have gotten sick and won't be coming after all, so I will post sign-ups hopefully a day or two after Christmas.
