In a nut shell the sweat shoppe swap is a grab bag style swap. Everyone crafts 5 like items, and in return you will receive 5 different items. Since you don't have to customize for each of your partners, a lot of people like to make their items ahead of time before signups close, but it is your choice. Here are the details;

Swap name:Sweat Shoppe Swap Round 15 (SSS 15)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: GatorWrangler
Sign-up date range: July 14 to Aug 2
Date to send item by: August 23

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional):NO

Restricted to people who all live in the same country?NO

All ages allowed? yes

This next part is for me and the Mods...
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/NO
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES/NO
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES/NO
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES/NO
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES/NO

Details of swap:
~Each participant will make 5 like items. For instance, 5 crocheted cloche hats (varied colors or the same it doesn't matter), or 5 sets of hand painted beads.
~Each item/set should be the best representation of your work, and have an estimated retail value of between $7-$10 USD. If you have any doubt, post your item in the business discussion board and see what others there think. Or you may post in the sweat shoppe discussion thread https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=84367.0 ,
~ When sign ups close, I will ask everyone for a 'top picks list'. That list is a wish list, from the items that are offered, and there will be an effort to match to you, as many items on your list, the remainder of items will be randomly placed.
~We have a system for sending early; the master list of swappers will be color coded for those who are ready to receive items. When you are finished crafting, you will PM me, and I will change the color of your name on the master list to green, at that time you may send to any other green/ready person! I will also send out a check in PM for those who are not finished early, and at that time your status will be determined.
~ No DCN's are required, however, if a package fails to arrive, you will be required to send another, unless you save your receipt from the PO, and in that instance I will get an angel.
~ Feedback will be given when all 5 items are confirmed as received.
~ Positive feedback will be given for all people complying with the craftster swap guidelines. Late senders will be recorded in the comments section, as will poor communication. If I have to track you down, for confirming you have received or sent items, this is poor communication. When an item arrives at your door, you are expected to PM the sender of an item as well as GatorWrangler, and post in the gallery.
~ there are a lot of veteran sweat shoppers here, if you have any questions please feel free to ask your questions here OR you can PM me!
~ You may put your 'name in the hat' once (for 5 items) or twice (for 10 items)

I will be offering cards with photographs I have taken on them.  My partners will each receive 4 cards with envelopes and they will be able to choose the photographs they want on their cards from my photos here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/colleenmarielynch/sets/72157602872084857

These are some cards with just a few of the options that people have chosen in a past round.

I may have to skip this round.  I will be gone on vacation for 2 weeks so I will have to see what things look like for me when I get back.  I really want a set of your notecards though, Gatorwrangler!

We are in the process of switching over to cloth diapers.  Would love some advice, hint, tips.   Will swap for diapers!

I'm not sure if I'll join just yet because 1) I have to think of something I could craft 5 of in 3 weeks and 2) I'm due with my second child in early August and methinks that could put a severe cramp in crafting time lol

Would there be any interest in wire wrapped stone pendants? Here are some I made previously...


I was thinking sets of two.They will either be hung on satin or leather cording, I haven't decided yet.

Hmm, I think I'll be doing jewelry of some sort....either asymmetric brass necklaces or mermaid necklaces.
