This is a swap dedicated to friends of the forest! This can include trees, owls, foxes, bunnies, bears, skunks, hedgehogs etc.. as well as the little guys you may never see wood sprites, gnomes etc.. You can state what type of animals you'd like in your preferences.

I'm going to state a number of rules here. I'm not mean or strict, but I want to make sure I state my expectations up front.
YOU MUST PM me and your partner when you send. YOU MUST get a DC# unless you are shipping internationally- no exceptions. And YOU MUST PM me and your partner when you receive. Also you should post your receipt of the package in the gallery and thank your partner publicly- even if you can't take a pic.
These things are stated here in the rules of swapping (so you know I'm not just being silly and making them up  ) http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6553.0
If you don't think you can take the time to communicate with PM's with me and your partner and afford the extra 55cents for a DC#- then in my opinion you won't be able to commit to the requirements of this swap, so don't join.
Trust me I'm not mean.. it's just so hard to organize a swap when people don't communicate.
Also there is a very long crafting time for this swap so I expect people to send on time. If you are over a week late past the deadline and have NOT communicated well you will have late in your feedback. Past two weeks, you will have late in your feedback no matter what (but good communication will be noted). If you are past two weeks late with no communication you will automatically get negative feedback till you communicate and send.
I also suggest PMing your partner either a week before the deadline or before you send (if you're sending early) and to hold off sending till you hear back from them. Sometimes even great swappers and communicaters just dissappear and since this is a long crafting time we should make sure we keep track of that.

OK... now on with the fun!

Yay!! I'm totally signing up for this. I'm in my first swap now and haven't gotten feedback yet, but I can send links showing I've help up my end of the bargain. I'll fill out all the details at home tonight.

It's great there is a long crafting time!!

One question - are there "requirements" for this swap? Like one big item two small ones, or fill an envelope of a certain size? Or is this TBA with your partner?

Thanks for organizing, I can't wait!  Grin

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.

I usually think of these kind of swaps as at least three things, with at least one "big".. but it is a judgment call, but they are definitely about a few things, not just one..

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.
