Details of swap:

Who wouldn't love something sweet and crafty to brighten up their kitchen?  In this swap we will be making 2-3 potholders for our partners.  Please indicate in your questionnaire whether you would prefer to make 2 OR 3. Potholders can be quilted/sewn, knitted, or crocheted.    

Swappers who are interested in swapping an additional item, such as a tea cozy, matching kitchen towel, or placemat, may indicate their interest in the questionnaire below. THIS IS NOT A REQUIREMENT.  It is just an option for those people who may be interested. I will attempt to match up people who are interested in this option, but I make no promises.  Swappers will be matched up first based on allergies & shipping, and then on swapping preferences.

As in all Craftster Swaps, DC#s are REQUIRED.

Posting pictures is required in this swap.  If you believe you will have trouble posting pictures for any reason, please mention this in the questionnaire below.  Please also take pictures of the items that you send, in case your partner has any unforeseen problems posting.

I reserve the right to refuse anyone. If you have feedback that shows a history of incomplete packages, very late sending, ill-communication, lack of DC #'s, lack of picture posting, etc. I may refuse you. I want this to be a flake-free swap!

For a wonderful swap experience, communication is the key.  Please keep in touch with your partner and your organizer.

Notes about Sending, Receiving, and Feedback
  SENDING: Take pictures of your items before you send.  When sending, you must use a DC# (or for overseas keep that receipt). Keep your receipt until your partner receives.  PM organizer and partner when you send.
  RECEIVING: PM organizer and partner when you receive.  Take pictures of received items. (Please take quality pictures, like ones you would take of your work.)  Post pictures in gallery in a timely manner.
  FEEDBACK: Given when both partners packages have been received (verified through PM or DC#) and pictures have been posted.  

NOTE: Lack of communication and explanation, such as no PMs of sending/receiving, will be noted in your feedback.  

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

Yeah, I'm really surprised there are so little of us so far! Don't there have to be at least 6 for it to count as legal Craftster swap?

I checked. There is no minimum. So the swap will run whether we have more swappers or not.  Regardless....this is gong to be fun anyway.  ;D

I agree! I am flexible as far as what I put on my questionnaire and I understand that since there are so few of us we may just get matched with each other and not with some "perfect match" or other some-such silliness :0)  I just like making stuff for others and getting (non-bill) things in the mail :0D

Me too  ;D And I'm not worried about a perfect match I can crochet, knit, and sew, though I'm strongest in sewing and crochet my kitting is on a machine and very basic still.

Yeah, I mean, if I have to send to someone not in the US or Canada (like I filled out on my Q) then I'll be fine. I think we already have a pretty fun little group going on here. Yes, I admit, I've already stalked all 3 of you! I think I like you guys!

If our little group remain as is, I already have an idea for partners.  But a couple more swappers would be nice.

Today I discovered....hang on I have to look at the label again, lol...Insul-Bright, the lady at Joann's insisted that this was THE stuff to use for making potholders and such, so tomorrow is a crafting day!  It even came with it's own pattern. Woohoo!  I even bought more fabric because I couldn't help myself, I love a good sale.

Finished with my other 2 swaps, now it's time to get to work on this... As soon as I get my last QAL blocks made? I do have ideas, though. Need to go to the store for part but we'll get there, eventually. Hey, maybe I should pull some fabrics while I can't use my machine since I live in a small house and I'm trying to get the baby down. OOooooohhhh... I hate my inertia issues! So hard to get going but once I do I don't stop!

4 balls of yarn alter I have already gone over what we agreed on and I haven't even been able to find the right fabrics in my stash for the potholders. I think I'm over compensating because the colors aren't quite right. Too much _____!

My dog has a habit of nibbling on things when I'm out of the house.  She won't detroy the whole item, but just enough so that you either can't use it or don't want to anymore  ;D  Aka: fabric scissors handle.

I had a dream about my partner the other night, who also happens to be the lovely organizer. There is one member of Craftster that really almost ruined it for me and wrote mean horrible things to me on my birthday. I dreamed that she had another alias on Craftster and was really Gerbilgal and partnered us up just so she could sabotage another swap for me. After the super package I sent out she sent me like a box of crap or something and I was very sad. I've been having a lot of high anxiety dreams lately. It has nothing to do with you Gerbilgal, I promise. I blame... The Fetus!

Woohoo the docs gave me meds so I can sit up without being dizzy!  I'm so happy I'll be able to finish my edgings finally  :D That's right the only reason I finally went to the doc was because I couldn't craft properly :::snicker::: stupid inner ear and sinus yuck yuck. 

Anyhoo I only have a smidge more to do to finish and then when I can drive again (I'm even dizzy just sitting...or is that ditzy) I'll go to the postal machine (that thing is sooooo cool)

Woohoo the docs gave me meds so I can sit up without being dizzy!  I'm so happy I'll be able to finish my edgings finally  :D That's right the only reason I finally went to the doc was because I couldn't craft properly :::snicker::: stupid inner ear and sinus yuck yuck. 

Anyhoo I only have a smidge more to do to finish and then when I can drive again (I'm even dizzy just sitting...or is that ditzy) I'll go to the postal machine (that thing is sooooo cool)

No worries you are fine :) You must take care of YOU before you can take care of crafting...See how heath and happinness I mean crafting go hand in hand LOL

  ;)The bias bindings were kicking my butt I have to say, they kept moving...or at least it looked like they were moving but I finally got them on there but my head was so messed up it took me a whole day to figure out the kiddos oven mitts even though I had the directions right in front of me, lol.

I'm pretty stoked though I got the kids mitts (kinda like in your pinterest) and then I followed your pinterest to do your stuff, I'm going to need one of the medium boxes at the post I think because I know it wont fit in the small box, I may have got a bit carried away but it sure was pretty fabric  ;D

I might have a potential flaker. She has a couple more days to send.  Who would be willing to angel for Kamehi?

Kamehi has received her swap package and posted pictures. This swap is now offically done. Thank you all for a wonderful swap.  Hopefully we can do another one in the future. Maybe early spring.
