Swap name: Cat Lovers Swap 4
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: cassafrass
Sign-up date range: May 14 - 24 (or until full)
Date to send item by: June 15

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Yes, 20

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
If so, which country?

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All ages

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

Details of swap:
* This swap is for cat lovers, cat owners, crazy cat ladies, and anyone else who just loves the purr of a cat and playfulness of a kitten. You don't need to own a cat, but you do need to love them!
* You will craft one large item OR two medium items, AND three small items. You can craft more if you want, but please talk to your partners! Communication is the key to successful swaps.
* Swap items can be for the cats or the owners. Obviously, owners need some lovin too!
* No handmade cat collars, please! You can buy a break-away collar at a store and embellish it, but please don't make it yourself. We don't want any kitty disasters.
* Try not to start crafting until you've read your partners info. I KNOW, it's hard to hold back. But, we will have some cat lovers who don't own them, or people who don't want specific items for their cats (catnip, feathers etc) I'll do my best to match people up with people that match their interests, but this is one of those swaps where preferences may alter the crafted items. Plus, a kitten would be good for different toys than an older cat, ya know?
* As with all other swaps, you MUST get a Delivery Confirmation # from the post office when you mail out (or hold onto a receipt or other documentation proving that you mailed your package). It's an extremely inexpensive way of assuring you, your partner, and organizer that you did indeed send out.

Hey! The slots are filling up! So, I'm going to suggest that if the slots all fill early, then perhaps move sendouts earlier?

As long as the 3-week crafting time frame is preserved, it's fine by me.  I'm itching to start crafting Smiley
