Details of the Swap:
Welcome to the inaugural Finish My UFO Swap! What is an UFO? UFO stands for Unfinished Object. Did you start a project that you are not interested in doing anymore? Or maybe you have a project you would like to finish but just do not have the time to finish? This swap is for you. Participants will post lists of their UFOs and then others can claim a UFO to finish. Admittedly, this swap is a bit of an experiment (Ill try my best not to make mistakes).  A swap like this has been suggested several times, but never acted upon until now. This is why I am making this swap for United States residents only. Delivery confirmation is a must throughout the process.

Also please note that this swap requires that you communicate with your partner and the organizer. If you choose a UFO that will be returned, be sure to PM whomever you claim in order to come to an agreement on how the UFO will be finished. Please send a PM when you claim, when you send, and when you receive.  

Please do not post in this thread until you have been approved by the organizer. This thread is for lists only.  If you need to change/add something, simply "Modify" your post. Post as soon as possible after approval so I know you have found the thread and that you are getting updates.

I will make a thread in the photo gallery board for discussion and photos as soon as I finish getting this thread set up.

How does this swap work?
This is a chain style swap. Claim an UFO from the list of the last person who posted and post your own list in response. It makes a chain.

You have two weeks from the date you receive the UFO to finish and post in the gallery. It is preferable to post a picture of the project before and after it is finished.  Remember to PM the organizer and the recipient when you claim, send, and receive. Please include the swap name in your subject line! Please make sure to tell her who you are claiming, sending to, or receiving from.

Note: Doing this is unconventional, but for now, I ask that when claiming, only claim one UFO at a time. In other words: make a claim, finish the claim, post the finished claim, then claim another UFO.

What should my bio and lists look like?
Once you have been approved, you may post in the list thread.  There is no one way to do this but please be sure your bio includes the following:
         - your location and a brief bio (include allergies in red please)
         - Lists of the UFOs available. Please separate which projects you would like returned to you from the ones that the claimer can keep. For example, you can have a list under the heading "keep", and a second list under the heading "return".
Special note: Remember, everyone is at a different skill level in their craft. A project may not be finished in the way you would have thought to do it. And that is ok. If you have a UFO that you want returned and want it finished in a very specific way, it may be best to not post it here.

Hi anyone and everyone!

I'd be asking to have yarn-related objects finished for me. I take so long......

I could finish papercraft, mod-podge, jewelry, sewing and quilting projects.

I'm sure I can do other things for anyone interested too.
