Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 35

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO, and you must be willing to send internationally. These will be letter sized packages with no DC numbers, so mailing will be relatively inexpensive. Participants must also be willing to re-send any lost packages in order to receive positive feedback at the end of the swap.

Age requirement? 13+

Swap Organizer and Co Organizer themselves 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

- 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 13 years old: YES
- Participant lives in the United States: YES
   - If yes, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: These packages will be letter size and too small for Delivery Confirmation, but you MUST be willing to resend if a package is not received in order to get positive feedback.
   - If no, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: See the note about delivery confirmation.

Details of swap:
Inchies are tiny little works of art. They are exactly 1" by 1", grouped together, they are beyond wonderful! For this swap, we are changing things up a bit due to swappers requests - you will make 42 inchies. You will send 6 sets of 7 to different partners. so you will make 42 and get back 42 Smiley

Here are a couple of examples of some inchies:

More inspiration:

all you would ever want to know about a inchie here - thanks Phizzychick for writing that up

There is plenty of time to make these, with sendouts August 31 - You can start right away, as they really don't need to be tailored to a certain partner. All mediums are welcome.  Inchies need to be on a sturdy base - Regular office paper won't work - You can use things like card stock, cardboard etc. If you are doing fabric be sure to put some kind of interfacing to make them sturdy - the links posted are great for ideas.  

Shipping - Please protect your inchies - don't just throw them in a envie and hope for the best - they are going to get beat up - Those little note cards work great for sending inchies as would just a pcs of cardstock folded over in a envie
I like to use atc card protectors and staple in between the inchies so they each have their own pocket and send that in a note card. also PLEASE include your user name somewhere - makes a bit easier to thank you for your wonderful inchies Smiley

Pictures are required.  Some like to post pics as they receive and others like to post after they received all of them.  You use a camera or a scanner.  

So who wants to play?


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

Name of swap: Inchies - one more time! (round 3)

Craftster username:

Mailing address including the country:

Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country? Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country? YES, this will be required.

Confirm that are at least 13 years old (yes/no):

1.  What kind of inchies are you wanting to do? (you can answer unsure here if you aren't sure yet).

2.  What kind of inchies would you like to receive? (examples would be fabric or cute or bizzarre, anything, etc)

I CANNOT guaranty that I can match people up perfectly, so keep an open mind.
