For this swap we will do 1 large 1 Medium and 2 smalls however I strongly recommend partners discuss between themselves maybe you would like 5 large......it is up to you whatever you are comfortable with. Partners please let me know if you are changing the guidelines so I can make note.

You are required to PM a valid tracking or Delivery Confirmation # to your partner and organizers when you send.

You MUST post photos of the items you received in the swap gallery.  Everybody loves seeing photos of all the goodies and your partner deserves recognition for the time and effort they spent crafting for you. 

You are required to post in the swap thread at least once a week.   It would be fun for everyone to post a picture of the room their partner is crafting for.   If you dont post one in the thread please send your partner a picture of the room!  It will make it much easier on your partner and will help ensure that you receive something that is crafted to match your rooms existing dcor.

20  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / yarn for yarnies swap on: January 03, 2009 07:48:40 PM
what if we created a swap where someone that spins trades yarn to some one who knits or crochets and the kniter and/or crocheter trades the spinner with a completed project of their choice??

*spinner gets a completed project of their choice
*crocheter/knitter gets homespun yarn....
