What do y'all think?

Signups: Sept. 15 - Sept. 30, 2013
Sendouts: December 1, 2013

We will each make/decorate a 12-16" tall stocking (cuff to heel) and fill it with goodies.  We will make/decorate and fill with our partner's tastes in mind.  Each stocking will have at least 50% crafted goodies, the remainder may be purchased supplies or items.  There will be check-ins every two weeks, so please be prepared to check-in!   Each organiser will check in with her group of swappers via PM, you must respond to that PM.   It's a very long crafting period and we would hate to lose anyone along the way.  You may choose one of three sizes to do in this swap and you will be paired accordingly.  Sometimes there will be an odd number, so please note if you are willing to do (for example) Small or Medium or maybe Medium or Large.
                      Small - concentrate on a fab stocking and fill with at least 3 crafted and 3 purchased items
                      Medium - do a great stocking and fill with at least 7 crafted and 5 purchased items
                      Large - aka Spoiler!  A great stocking and no end of goodies!!

NOTE:  This is a holiday based swap so please do not send late - there are times when life interferes with crafting and we all understand that, however, a temporary negative will be given to anyone who sends more than two weeks past the sendout date, according to Craftster rules.  If you send late at all, it will be noted in your feedback.  Communication issues will also be noted.  We like to run a very nice, fun and timely swap.

Here are past galleries:

Round 8
Round 7
Round 6
Round 5
Round 4
Round 3
Round 2
Round 1


As you can see, it's generally a very large swap!  It's loads of fun and there are tons of delightful gifts given and received! Smiley  Join us!

    This swap is the only reason I watch the swap boards. I've been waiting for it. Why hasn't it gone up yet?! We are buying a new house but if I have this as my only swap I'm sure I will be able to get away with it. Oh, I guess I need to finish up my hoop swap! EEP!

    I missed out on organizing and participating in my usual Christmas swap.  So, I am contemplating joining this when signups are started.  It sounds fun and I really would love to do an Xmas swap this year still.

    I am REALLY interested in this, have been humming and harring for days but think I am going to join.

    One quick question though, as the parcel is fairly big and money at that time of the year is tight, are there any UK or European swappers I could be partnered with?

    Have spent the last few days looking through the gallery and getting more and more tempted, so if there are I will join,, if there aren't I will try to persuade on, if that doesn't work I won't join!

    Ratfinkz, are you still interested in doing this swap? I missed the deadline too as I've only discovered the swap just now, but I'm in the UK too so if you're interested in doing it as a personal swap we could partner up? PM me if you're interested Smiley
