In a nut shell the sweat shoppe swap is a grab bag style swap. Everyone crafts 5 or 10 like items, and in return you will receive 5 or 10 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 23 (SSS 23)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: GatorWrangler
Sign-up date range: June 1 to June 12
PM Organizer top picks by: June 13, 10pm eastern
Must be finished crafting (green) by: July 2
Date to send item by: July 6

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 or 10 like items. For instance, 5 or 10 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.
~ Then I will post a list on the forum for about a day. During this time, people can bring any errors to my attention. DO NOT PM ANY PARTNERS DURING THIS TIME UNTIL I GIVE THE OKAY.
~ 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.
~ Make sure to get a Delivery Confirmation number for all Domestic shipments. If the item is International, make sure to save your receipt.
~ 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)


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer (GatorWrangler):

I'm in!   Your necklaces are pretty, Gatorwrangler!   Smiley


I'm offering 10 moonstone necklaces (of 3 different variations).   Smiley

All 10 necklaces include 2 moonstone beads and all silver plated findings (chain, connectors, bead caps etc) and silver plated lobster claw clasps.  The only metal part this is not silver plated is the wire used to make the moonstone bead and that is nickel silver.  Necklaces chains vary in length from approx 17 inches to 18 inches because they are handmade by me from bulk chain and handmade wire bead finding (for the moonstone).   The tensha bead necklaces are the shorter length.

Japanese tensha and aqua miracle bead
The design on the tensha bead is flowers.   The miracle bead is really pretty in real life, it is hard to capture on camera.  It's really reflective and shiny.  I only have 2 of this style necklace.   

Natural agate and Czech glass beads
This is a natural agate stone with Czech glass bead dangles.  I have 1 of these.

Aqua flower trio and Czech glass beads
I think these are acrylic flower beads.  I don't remember and they are not marked.   There will be 6 or 7 of these on offer and each one will have different color Czech glass beads (the dark bronze colored beads in the photo).  (bronze, aqua, sapphire, green, pink, red)

Hi, I will be sending in my form soon a will be offering 5 snap wallets and was wondering for my other 5 would people prefer small (4x6) notebooks using re-purposed printer paper with covers of either a picture you email to me or cardboard packaging (example a picture form a cheerios box) let me know if this does not make sense or a needle book in the shape of an envelope.  I will post pictures once I have made a sample, I don't seem to have pictures or old ones I made at the moment.
