This swap is for all those; Kings, Queens, Maids, Wenches, Pirates, Fearies, Elves, Goblins and craftstman (no racism intended if your not in there you can still join Smiley ) Who like going to any type of faire (fantasy, steampunk, medieval, Gothic, Renaissance etc.) It's also open to reenactors and Larpers who enjoy faire life.

I'm going to be pairing partners up as much as possible according to shared interests. Therefore I hereby warn you it's quite extensive.

For all the communication about this swap I'd like to ask you to include Faire swap in the subject line. Otherwise I might accidentally overlook your message.

Well, I'll be giving this some thought.  I have to figure time, budget, and time period.  I think it sounds like a lot of fun, though.

Oo, thank you for the long crafting time! I really wanted to do this but I was worried I wouldn't have the time/money. Once I get feedback this is going on my list!

P.S. Every time I see your user name, Scaramouche, I immediately get Bohemian Rhapsody stuck in my head!

Don't we all??   Cheesy  I see a little silhouetto of a man.... 

I sooooo want to come join this swap!  I'm trying really hard to stay away from swaps (yeah I know, I'm in 3 right now but I just sent out two of them) because I'm working on my National Boards for school.  I may have to give this swap some SERIOUS consideration.   Cheesy  I'm very sad that our only Renissance Faire here (Charlotte, NC) is in October/November but I'm going to try to make it to the Faire in Atlanta in April since that's where my fiancee lives.  It just seems like such a loooooong wait for either one of the faires to get here!  Definietly considering!  If I don't join I'll be stalking the gallery.  Grin

Argh, another swap I'd like to sign up for...but my Devilman lost his job today. So unless he gets a new one in the next week or two, I'm restricted to just finishing up the swaps I'm currently in.  Sad

I am excited for this, but I am waiting a little to sign up. I am gonna start some crafting for the three swaps I am currently on and see how it goes, to make sure I don't take on too much. I have a major event on the 27th that I host, and another that I am part of 3 weeks later, so I am worried about being overwhelmed. If I can knock out the stuff for at least one swap by the end of next week, then I will sign up.

My Swaps:

Will do personal swaps to receive fabric yardages. Also, if you are looking for costume work, I will work in trade or swap. I have an available Singer Pixie, is anyone interested?

Go right ahead and wait a little bit.

I gave us a lot of sign-up time so all of you have some time to consider joining as well as a long crafting time to make sure no-one gets really stressed out.

I love this swap. Now let's just see how my time and money stake up, or don't for that matter. It's up to fate!
