There has been so much hoopla about hooplas going on - I'm not sure if folks are ready for another round of Ongoing Hoopla or if we should put it on hold for a bit or change it up a bit.

This is how it has worked:
Claims are made throughout the swap period. You have three weeks from the time you make a claim to send that claim.
You can make as many (or as few) claims as you want throughout the month as long as you never go over your allowed amount of outstanding claims. (An outstanding claim is a hoopla that has not been received; when that hoopla is received your number of outstanding claims goes down leaving you open to bring it back up to 2 or 3.) The swapper must meet the medium requirement of at least 2 hours of stitching time for each claim they make

Claims are made using the following procedure:
Person A (the swap organizer) will begin the swap by posting a list of themes in this swap thread.
Person B will choose a theme from one of A's themes and make a claim by posting his/her own list (see below for formatting of post).
Person C will make a claim on one of B's themes and post his/her own list.
Person D will make a claim on one of C's themes and post his/her own list etc...

Please weigh-in if you are interested in another round, when you would like it to happen and if you would prefer anything changed (i.e. list style swap instead of a chain, shorter crafting window, a single round where the hoops have to meet the criteria for a large, whatever you think would make the swap more interesting)

I missed the last one so I'm ready now! Never done an ongoing hoopla before, but it sounds pretty straightforward. What is the point value of the swap? Three weeks might be too short of a crafting time for me if its very large. If its just one medium sized hoop at a time though that should be fine Smiley

I would be happy to join!! I have missed some as I was moving and unable to join in on the fun.

I have only been in one ongoing hoopla swap, but I liked the way it was set up as a chain. It gave me the freedom to choose what I felt I could kick some butt at. I liked that it could be cross stitch or embroidery. I also liked how it could be any size hoop, as long as the needle pointing time was right.

I found the crafting time to be pretty close to perfect. I would rather have a 3 week window than a 2 week, it gives me time to take my time and not rush. I want to send my best.  But I know I could handle a two week window.

I am totally up for one, though I need to receive feedback for one of my swaps first. I really appreciated that we could sign up for almost the whole month of July, as I had my swap slots full and it gave me the time to receive feedback and still join.

I have a lot of other swap interests in progress or coming up, so I doubt I'll have a swap slot for this one (at least initially). If I miss this round, I'll for sure look for the next one as my hoop collection is sparse as I just started it.

oh I'm getting excited! So do I think of categories/themes of things I want to receive or want to make?
