Craftster does not support personal swaps.



So, I was curious as to whther or not we were "allowed" to have a private swap with someone. Like, I ask a person to make me something I dont know how to make, and I do the same for them.  And if it is okay, anyone interested?? I am not too crafty persay, but I love making all kinds of stuff. I guess this would be similar to the wish list swap.

I've done it lots and had great experiences. I usually PM them and keep it private, not like a regular open swap.

Exactly what Pink Mafia said.   It's totally okay, but do it privately.   It's interesting because with personal swaps you usually get to know the person better than you do in a normal swap!

I have to agree. It works great for both items and supplies and you get a friend out of it as a bonus. d

I hadn't been a member very long and did a personal swap with a person who is no longer active on the board.  I packaged up about 6 six pairs of earrings- and they weren't crap ones either, they took time, thinking, and believe it or not, $$.  I even wrapped up each little pair in gift wrap.  I was SO EXCITED!  I even wandered over to the 'rents house and told them.  That happened last February.  I never got anything back.  Worse was she promised me all kinds of stuff and then got tossed out of a swap for flaking- she sent me a PM to say she didn't forget about me (in June).  Long story to say I felt like I got burned but who I can I tell??  It was an agreement between us and not a public swap.  A while back, someone else approached me about trading.  I was wary but thought I might try again.  This time, all went well, and we traded again shortly thereafter!
