Swap name: DIY Kit Swap Round 4
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: sharc
Sign-up date range: 4/28/2006 - 5/5/2006
Date to send item by: 6/3/2006

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No.
Non-U.S. participants allowed? Yes.

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

Details of swap:
Back by popular demand! Share your crafty knowledge and create a DIY Kit for a craftster and in return learn something you've always wanted to learn but just didn't know where to start, or what to get!! All participants will be matched as best as possible accoriding to the kits they can make and the kits that they'd like to receive, so that we can all learn these kewl crafts from each other. 

Craft Kits should include:
-project sheet with instructions and techniques (feel free to include samples/examples)
-materials
-tools with which to complete the project

Rules:
1. Craftsters MUST communicate with each other - at least in the beginning to acknowledge their partners, and at the end to reassure them that their kit's on the way. Last swap, I had a little trouble with this, and I had many worried partners, and it really was a bit unfair, expecially after unnamed flakers got theirs, but never sent!! . ..I'm not going to monitor this, but if you think you're having trouble, or are unsure, PM ME!!!

2. Also I need you to PM me when you send your kit and when you receive your kit.

3. If you're going to be late in sending, or are having any trouble at all, please let me know.. .. .be nice to your fellow Craftster, and keep them aware of your situation.

4. If you've never swapped beofre, please read the Swap Info Guide.


This swap was created after the DIY Swaps Rounds I, II and III:

oh man. I'm totally in. I am trying really hard not to overcommit but if I wait till the last second to send (I am not a flaker, promise Wink ) then I think I can make it work.

question: any chance we could get people to post in this thread as well, with some of the kits they could put together? I'd love some ideas of what to request!

and maybe you could post with something you really wish you could get?

or maybe I've done one too many wishlist-type swaps lately?
