Swap name: Friendship Bracelet Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: handxhand
Sign-up date range: 12/27/05-01/10/06
Date to send item by: 01/24/06

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Nope.

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Of course.

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All ages.

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

Details of swap:
This is the swap for the idea that was introduced here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=56593.0

Everyone will be making 4 bracelets to send out to four different people, thus getting 4 in return.  I hope everyone's okay with that. There is two weeks to sign up and then two weeks to make and send your bracelets away. These shouldn't take that long so I'm hoping no one flakes or is late, because this swap is fairly short and simple.

I've provided links to How-To's if there are some of you that need a refresher, or you're just out of ideas.

As for mailing, I think it should be fairly cheap because you could probably sneak a bracelet into regular envelopes, unless yours is heavy for some reason And you will not need to get DC.
If you have any comments or questions, post here or PM me.
This should be fun!

Well the only problem with no maximum is that no one will receive the same amount. How many more are we talking, like 5?

I don't know. It's cool to receive 2 but I think it would have been even better if we had like, groups of 5 people (or if only a few people sign up then everyone) and have each person make one for everyone in their group. Postage is most likely only a stamp, if that, so it wouldn't be expensive. Then everyone would get a few and they would get different styles too but, i dont know, 2 is cool.

Okay, I like the groups of 5 thing. I'm just hoping more people will sign up, there should be more, what with there being 12-odd days 'til sign-ups are over.
I would like everyone to chime in as to what they want to do:
  • 2 bracelets for one partner
  • 5 bracelets for one partner
  • Groups of 5, so you send out 4 and receive 4 back
Any other ideas?
