Swap name: Owl Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: actoneends
Sign-up date range: 3/04 - 3/14
Date to send item by: April 7 (4/07)
deadline EXTENDED!!!: MAIL BY APRIL 14, 2006
Limited to a certain number of people? : 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
...i'm really going to be a stickler about this!


Details of swap:
 Owls.  They're cute.  They hoot.  We craft. 
  One large, semi-time consuming project and two small projects (or any equivalent to this- such as one large, and one medium, or three-four mediums, etc.), all involving owls or our love of owls. 



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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Owl Swap
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of the US?
Favorite colors:
Colors you can't stand:
What kinds of crafts do you do?
What kinds of crafts would you like (no guarantee though!)?
Any allergies or aversions?
Anything else your partner should know?



IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.


After people have signed up, I'll list those participating and partner assignments here:

 

Since we have an uneven number of crafters in this swap, three people will send to each other (that means these three people will not send to who they receive from). If this is a problem, let me know!


here's the list:


actoneends <--> mellyp

craftypixie <--> kristen81

tenika <--> pollen

teamwang <--> Kuolema Nox

nullgal sends to bracelel_girl

bracelet_girl sends to mad chandler

madchandler send to nullgal

Ack!

I am obsessed with owls and really want to do this swap BUT I am in my first swap now and it doesn't end until March 21st. This means I can't join another swap until after that right??  Cry

Any way I could sign up provisionally until I get good feedback?? If not I'll wait for owl swap round 2. . .

I really really really would love to have Interweave Knits Spring 2007 for those Eunny Chang entrelac socks. . . Does anyone want to swap for it?! I have yarn, I can sew, embroider, knit.

Ok, folks, I've assigned everyone partners based on what you craft and what you hope to receive.   

Since we have an uneven number of crafters in this swap, three people will send to each other (that means these three people will not send to who they receive from). If this is a problem, let me know!


here's the list:


actoneends <--> mellyp

craftypixie <--> kristen81

tenika <--> pollen

teamwang <--> Kuolema Nox

nullgal sends to bracelel_girl

bracelet_girl sends to mad chandler

madchandler send to nullgal


i'll be pming each and every one of you with your partner's info

consider it extended.  i'll check up on everyone the week before we mail (which we now mail on the 14th, so i'll check around the 7th) and i'll check again, probably, before that

hey guys. a family emergency has just occured so i have to leave the state (and my crafting) for a week.  i should have access to  the internet if you guys have any problems. 

so right now, we have a little under two weeks, because we've extended the send out date to the 14th.   i haven't heard anything extra from everyone, so i assume we're all on schedule....or do we want another week?  (ha, sorry, but since i lose this week, i wouldn't mind another one.  what do you guys think?)

let me know, hopefully, i'll be able to get back to you shortly.

I was going to send mine today but the post office was closed as it's a public holiday today. I hope they'll be open tomorrow again.  Undecided
