Details of swap:

Can't get enough of BBC shows, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Sherlock, Merlin, Being Human, etc....then this swap is for you! Swap not limited to the shows I just listed and you do not have to have seen or like them all to join.

This will be a 5pt swap. Below is a suggested guide to the points system. You are required to craft at least one large OR one medium. There is a space on the questionnaire to say that you're interested in a bigger swap but it's no guarantee that you'll be matched with someone who also wants to craft more.  

Please do not join if you are not willing to communicate once a week on the thread. It does not have to be a long post but at least update your partner and myself.  If your feedback reflects lots of non-communication, non-posting of pics, etc. I may decide you are not able to swap in this swap. I want this to be a fun and flake-free swap.

If you are new to swapping and/or have not posted crafts please do so as that will help when partnering up. Having a wist or pinterest is helpful as well, but not a requirement. Thanks!

By Points
Large= 3 points
Medium=2 points
Small=1 point

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price

Ooh, so tempting! This is open to Americans, right?
« Reply #3 on: October 15, 2011 01:21:59 PM »

Yes it is.  Grin

Hmmm, would this be limited to current shows only, would older, finished shows (like Ballykissangel, Vicar of Dibley, Faulty Towers) be acceptable as well?

...and how many "favorites" are we allowed to have?

This is very tempting...
« Reply #5 on: October 15, 2011 04:10:35 PM »

Ooh, yeah, I had the same question about older shows (big Life on Mars fan here)...

Also, can I include shows that run on BBCAmerica here in the US, even though they might not air on BBC in the UK?
« Reply #6 on: October 15, 2011 04:31:20 PM »

I am a big Life on Mars fan too, and Ashes to Ashes, so I definitely think any of the older shows or BBC America ones would be fine as long as you have at least one current show listed.

No limit on how many favorites you want to list, although for both questions I can't be sure you will get a partner who knows them all which is why it is probably good to have one well known current listed like Doctor Who, Sherlock, etc.

I am supposed to be cutting myself off from swaps but how can I when I love The IT Crowd and Coupling.

I am SOOO tempted on this; I LOVE the new Sherlock and I am a major fan of QI, although I know it's not a drama. Love a lot of stuff they play on masterpiece theater and I know it's a lot of British stuff. (Love MI 5 too).
