Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"

Additional Rules:

1. If this is your first swap please read: (http://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html) to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

2. You must bookmark this thread. All updates will be made here and its your responsibility to keep up with everything.

3. I will be giving feedback in the following way:

great swapper- for those who follow all the rules
Did not thank partner or pm organizer when package was received- for those with bad manners
Poor communication- if you don't respond to my pm's but have been logging on to craftster
Shipped late (w/ or w/o communication)
Did not purchase DCN (unless you are not in US)

5. Please put knit/sew/crochet Swap in the title of all PM's ( I get lots of PM's and sometimes it gets confusing.)

6. Please make an item that you would like to receive. Do some research on your partner.

7. If your package is too thin please stuff with plastic bags so you can get a DCN. If you are out of the US save your receipt, this is proof you shipped. YOu will not be given credit as shipped if your package is lost and you  don't have the receipt or a DCN. Negative feedback will be given unless you make a replacement package.

Details of swap:
This swap is for people who can either sew, knit or crochet and want something that they can't make. It is for ONE item. If you and your partner decide to make a few items that is fine but most people will send one time intensive item.

Edited to add: If the two partners agree, you can send more than one item. If someone is making one time intensive item the other person can make a few extra things to make it fair. Its really up to the partners. Feel free to post on this board if ther is an  item you *really* want and I will see who is willing to do what. I really want everyone to be happy and get something they want.

Yea!  This is exciting! 

I just learned how to sew but still totally a beginner.  I have loved all the fabric in the first swap...especially the skirts (and spring is coming!!!!).

what size of item are you think PinkMafia?

i DESPERATELY DESPERATELY want someone to make me a sweater, but i know that's a huge request. (i saw someone walking down the street wearing a skully, and i NEED one)

but i'd be totally willing to do multiple sewn items in exchange....

I am so tempted by this because I cannot knit to save my soul and it seems that everything I pine for is knitted.
However. I would also like to know about size of items because while I have been sewing since I was 8 I am not extremly confident in my sewing skillz. I also cannot follow directions, no matter how many times I read them something inside of me makes me do the opposite. But it always works out!

If someone is willing to make you a sweater for a bunch of sewn items thats fine with me. I think that its good to vocalize on the thread what you want and people can comment on what they'd be willing to make. I have a really cool idea for a knit or crotchet bag with a holder so thats what I want to make.

Oh, yes. 

Vocalizing:  I love to make knitted then felted bags.  I don't why but I am obsessed!  Obsessed!  With little cellphone holders, of course.

Hey peachsorbet, if I get anyone to send me the yarn, since I cant get it here in germany I would knit zaftig for you. I would love a pair of crocheted socks, can you do that?
