Swap name: Unconditional Swap August
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Tanza  and  Hookin Flamingo (Organizers will change every month)
Sign-up date range: August 6th - August 27th
Date to send item by: Must send out item within 2 weeks of picking a partner
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No
Non-U.S. participants allowed? Of course!
All ages allowed? Or 18+? Yes, but make sure your parents are okay with it and that you'll have a ride to the post office!
Organizer is aware of users with negative feedback and will not allow those members to participate: Yes

For those of you who joined this swap in July:
Feel free to post any 3 wishes you please (AFTER you've been APPROVED), they do not have to be the same as last month!

Please remember to send in the form even if you had a list in July. I am a new organizer, and I don't have your information!

You must PM the organizer when you post your list, so she knows that you have done so and can check it. PLEASE DO NOT post anything other than your wishlist (new OR old) and a little bit of info about you, any questions or comments can go here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=50691.0


-- Each person interested will post a list of maximum THREE items they want. (Try and list items that you cannot make, but would like to have). These items must be reasonable; it must not be ones that would cost someone a truckload of money to make for you!

-- Once you have given your three items good thought, reply to this thread and post your 3 wishes, along with any other information that will be helpful for those looking to craft for you. (Color preferences, style, size, design, etc)

-- Those coming along this thread will scroll and read all sign ups, and decide if they want to craft for someone. Those who sign up as well are free to craft for another.

-- The catch to this is you cannot expect anything in return for your efforts except a thank you. That is why it's called an unconditional swap. You can hope that someone else or maybe that same person would want to make you something as well and then craft for you. And knowing the great craftsters here, I'm sure everyone will receive something.

-- Each month the organizer will change. All information of the swap will be transferred to the next organizer. An announcement will be posted about this change.

-- Each person can be picked 2 TIMES! This means that only 2 people can send to someone. Within those 2 people, the person may receive all 3 items. I.e. "A" and "B" are sending to "X". A chooses to send 1 item off the list, while B chooses to send the other 2 items. Therefore fulfilling all 3 wishes of "X".
Now, it is not necessary to fulfill all three 3 wishes..."A" could send just one item and "B" could choose to send one item thereby fulfilling two wishes on "X's" wish list.

-- When you post your wish list be sure to mention the country you are in on that post. For example:

I am in India.
Wish 1
Wish 2
Wish 3

-- Once you have been picked twice your name will be crossed out in red on the list. You can be on the list again the next month, when the organizer changes.

-- The crossed out names can be back on the list once the organizer changes (every month).

-- As soon as anyone picks a partner, you have to ship them their stuff within 2 weeks.

-- If more than one person picks a person and wants to make them the same item, then the person who Pmed the organizer first will get preference to make that item.

I would appreciate if you could PM me with the DC number or scan the receipt. And - Please DO NOT write your original post in any other color but black. This will make it easier to sort through.

-- All in all this is sort of a good karma swap. Give unconditionally is your motto my fellow craftsters.

-- All regular swap rules do apply for this. All of you who sign up will be screened to see if you are eligible to join the swap, including Newbies.

-- Positive and Negative feedback will be given for this swap. Your feedback will reflect the number of people you send to that month.

-- When you PM me your wish choices, please include their craftster name, wish # and wish.

I will continue the trend of posting who has chosen who.

"There's been a lot of talk about flaking and since this swap has a higher potential for flaking than others, I've taken the suggestion to post who is taking who's wishes in a format similar to the Ongoing Wish Swaps. If you really want to keep it a secret, thats fine, just let me know when you pm with your choice(s). I am just giving this a try to see how it goes, the next organizer may choose not to do it this way. My intention is to cut down on the amount of flaking that is happening with this swap."

Please DO NOT post your lists until AFTER I've told you you're in.

When you have been picked PLEASE crossout and change the colour of your post accordingly (green for one wish, red for two-three wishes fulfilled). If you need help with that, feel free to PM me.

My name is Jana, I'm in England.

1. Anything from my ever growing Wist list www.wists.com/simplyfussfree

2. Black, white, or cream knit hat ( No shiny/with sheen yarn please ) Thanks so much, JessLeigh! I'm excited about it!

3. A white or cream scarf

Anyone who chooses to craft for me, thanks loads!

About me: I live in Los Angeles but will be living in England for the next month and a half with my boyfriend. My name is Jana, I'm 26 years old. I like green <3 ( foresty/avacado-y ), and browns. I'm obsessed with travelling and with Romania, Russia, and Poland. I like Victorian looking things, forest themed things, Hansel and Gretal, things with trees on them, birds, ferns, bikes, and nesting dolls. I don't like: metallics, fun fur, yarn with a sheen ( like simplysoft ), when people clip their nails around me, and when people clap at the end of movies.

Hi there I am Jenn and I live in California.

#1 Knitting or spinning items. I am new to knitting and only have a few needles that I have got from a yardsale.
I would love any hand me downs or extra yarn you have laying around (I love interesting colors and all kinds, aside from eyelash type or stuff like that...a little or allot doesn't matter) Or a needle wrap that I have seen many times on the boards. A drop spindle, etc. Or anything else you find is usefull.

#2 A knitted item that I couldn't make for myself (since I'm a beginner) You can take a peek at my WIST but here are a few that I would LOVE!
http://www.sockarmy.com/product_MS-RedAW.php (I love the button detail)
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v400/yclept/knitting/animal-cracker3.jpg (Ron's hat from HP)
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=72372.0 (this is black with a olive , lime, or funky colored bow would rock)

#3 Soap  I would love to get some home made goats milk soap....something with a nice fresh sent would be great (maybe a peppermint for summer?) But I'm not too picky as long as it isn't super sweet or strong.

I am a 31 yr old SAHM to my one little guy. We love the beach and the outdoors, crafting, sewing, music and exploring. I am learning how to knit again Smiley.  I love all kinds of animals and bright colors...my fave is chartruse together with olive green and brown. If you would like to find out more just check out my links Smiley

Thanks in advance to anyone who is willing to craft for me

Thanks again!

I'm 18 and live in Scotland, I love cats. I have just learnt to knit within the past 2 weeks. I love all colours, but tend to pick bold over pastel. I don't like eyelash yarn or anything fun fur (apart from cats beds!) I dn't tend to go for hearts or skulls either.

Thank you to anyone who picks me Smiley

i am in canada and have a wishlist based on hitting the road for a few months come mid-september

here it is:

1) a big, sturdy, washable messenger bag with a couple of extra pockets (maybe something simple like a brown corduroy...or any scraps you have lying around). i also have a few lovely silkscreened patches that i could mail to you to be incorporated, if you felt crazily inspired.

2) cloth pouches of any size for organizing all my crap on the road.

3) edit: crochet stitch markers! thank you so much, ecrameri!
