The Basics
Quote
This swap is organized with the intention that you will make a true Craftster friend. This is not just about sending and receiving amazing hand crafted items. It is about getting to know your swap partner, learning about them and learning from them. We hope that you make a lasting bond and can be true Crafty BFFs.

This swap is ran by the main organizer, RebelTrendsetter, along with multiple co-organizers. Once sign ups close, you will be assigned a group. Each group is managed by a different co-organizer. You will be notified as to who your organizer is at the same time you are notified as to who your partner will be for the swap.  That will be your group organizer and you will send all messages to that organizer. As a way to keep from cluttering the inbox, please do not message RebelTrendsetter unless she is your group organizer OR you have a problem with your organizer.
