Swap name: Feltmaking Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: ptarmic wumpus
Coorganizer: peachymanaangel

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
Age requirement? 18 years

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
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 18 years old: YES
- Participant lives in the United States: YES
   - If yes, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
   - If no, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:
This swap is for making felted items out of fiber via the methods of wet felting, needle felting, or related techniques. This swap is NOT for items made of craft felt, or for items which are knit/crocheted from yarn and fulled, although craft felt or fulled knits can be incorporated into the project. The main crafting effort should be feltmaking, so a needlefelted painting worked onto a craft felt background would be fine, but a knitted and fulled bag with a small needlefelted heart in the corner would not be in the spirit of this swap. Please see the Felting Boards and/or pm the organizer if you are confused about exactly what feltmaking is before joining this swap.

We will craft one Large and one Small item for this swap. A large item might be a felted scarf or a needlefelted sculptural doll; a small item might be wet felted beads or a needlefelted coaster.  There is a long crafting time (one month), and I am going to be strict about the sendout date - please do not sign up for this swap if you are likely to be sending late. There will be two mandatory check-ins for this swap, one during the first week of crafting to be sure that you have been able to communicate with your partner, and one in the final week of crafting. If you do not respond to the check-in pm request within one week for either check-in, you will receive a note of "poor communication" in your swap feedback. All packages sent domestically within the US must be sent with Delivery Confirmation, and the DC number must be pm'd to both the organizer and the recipient. For all packages sent internationally, the receipt must be saved as proof of shipping. If you fail to get Delivery Confirmation or to save your receipt, this will be noted in your swap feedback.  Swappers shipping more than five days after the sendout date will have a note of "Sent Late" in their swap feedback.

holding this space in case I need it.

Also, if more than a few people sign up, I would like a backup co-organizer because I will be on travel without internet for three weeks starting July 15. This would involve entering feedback for swappers who send late or who have slow mail service.

hmmm... interesting....

Sounds like I am in the same boat as others, plan on joining if I can make some good progress with other swaps.  It has been a while since I busted out my felting needles.   Cheesy

Knitting goal for 2011: knit 500,000 stitches.  24,078/500,000 knit.  I think I'm going to need more yarn...

OMG I am so in for this. I am so in love with felt making.
