Sign-up date range: 03/28/2011 - 04/08/2011

If you are in the US, please consider shipping internationally. Light kits may not be as expensive as you might think.

If you dont want to send all you kits internationally, just tell me in your signup. For example, maybe you can only afford to send one kit internationally but can send 3 kits total. Or maybe it is too expensive to send your book binding kit internationally, but you can on the other kits. Or you will ship to North America but not overseas. Just let me know.

Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

To give you ideas, I will list all the kits people are offering and what they want to learn. Go ahead and sign up. If you see something you want to add to your list later, that is no problem. Just PM me with any changes before the swap closes. So I dont get inundated with PMs about changing lists, let say one PM (about this) per person. You can keep a list of all the changes you want made, and then PM me a day or so before the swap closes.
