Swap name: Squid Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: jan_on_ice
Sign-up date range: 26 Oct - 31 Oct 2005 CLOSED
Date to send item by: 30 Nov 2005

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): no

Non-U.S. participants allowed? yes

All ages allowed? Or 18+? all ages

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:
SQUIDS! OCTOPI! CUTTLEFISH!! OH! THE SWEET MOLLUSKS!

Craftin' with cephalopods in mind, let your imagination go wild, and make either one large and time-consuming item, or 3 smaller items. A cephalipod case (get it?), a stuffed giant octopus, a skirt with an embroidered squid. I'd personally like to see a knit hat with 8 legs and an ink steam, but that's just me.


Please be aware of another rule that I have added for this swap. Do not send me your information without commenting in this thread. I don't care if you comment with one word or a pirate joke or your favourite recipe, it just makes it easier for me to contact you and check on your details.
If you have already sent your info, you must still reply to this thread before I will approve you.

The five rules are vital if you want to be in this swap. I won't be allowing anyone who doesn't meet these conditions to join the swap.


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

You should all have "IN PROGRESS" feedback in your profile. Please check and let me know if you don't.

Please make sure that I have sent you the right person's info (sending 25 different PM's is hard work! - I know I sent one person the wrong person's info, so please double-check with your partner!) - you should have the information of the person stated in the list above. Please also PM them to make sure their address details are correct (you don't want all your hard work to be sent to the wrong address!). Also, feel free to ask your partner any questions and get to know them a little! Smiley

If there are any problems with the info, or you have not recieved it yet, please let me know.

To help prevent flaking, I am going to use the same system stopmoshun and I used for the My Country Doesn't Have That Swap.
Before anyone sends, both partners will have to check in, and let me know where they are with their package. So please don't send until we have heard from your partner. While this doesn't prevent flakers, it prevents being flaked on (not that there will be any flakers in this swap, because I know squid-lovers are all wonderful people! Cheesy)
Please see the list on Page 9 to see if the person you are sending to has checked in...
If you are going to have any problems with making the send out date, PLEASE let me know. I will be happy to extend it if need be.

The time has come
The walrus said
To talk of many things-
Of shoes and ships and sealing wax-
Of cabbages and kings.
And why the sea is boiling hot
And whether pigs have wings.
