Here's the sign up thread for the UK Instant Swap, as discussed in this thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=63347.0
The purpose of this swap is to craft an item for your partner in a short time frame. It has to be something you can do to a high standard over a weekend, as partners will be posted on a Tuesday, with send outs on the following Tuesday.
To give you an idea, here are some of the things that people made over a weekend in the recent instant swap 6:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=60278.0
It's quite a long questionnaire, as we felt that we'd need a lot of info for a short crafting period.
