I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

We were talking about an ongoing inchie swap over on the twinches swap thread. Here are some thoughts that I have about it.

We run it like the ongoing wish swap. You basically swap for the person above you. You can jump in at any time. FOC will have three picks, regular members will have two and newbies will have one. You have two weeks to ship out. In your post you would give a little bio about yourself and then list at least 10 ideas someone can choose from for stitching.

I hope this makes sense. Does anyone else have ideas?

That sounds perfect to me  Cheesy

Only one other thought - I know people are finishing and presenting their inchies differently....should we agree to all send our inchies unmounted/unfinished or set a standard finishing method, or something like that?

I think unmounted is the way to go. It also allows quicker turn around time.

This would be cool for another low-overhead swap like the ATCs I can jump on whenever I have a little free time. Smiley

Would it be done like ATCs where no tracking is required?

I would require tracking. It kind of sucks going to the post office, but I am running into people who didn't use tracking numbers and are now having to remake the item because it was lost. So absolutely yes on the tracking number.

I've never done an OWS, but think I'd be interested in joining if this one starts.

This sounds wonderful, but balancing the 5 swap limit and all the amazing swaps we have going right now might mean I have to pass it up for now.

I'd love to join but is international accepted? We don't have the tracking option you guys have though, so I'd guess I'd be out. Well there is tracking but it is ridiculous and I couldn't afford that regularly.

Oh well, maybe I can stalk for private swaps... Can't do anything til August anyway.

Keen to see what you guys make, the twinchies swap has been wonderful to watch!

You could still do it, you would just need to show proof that you sent.
