This is the swap where we will make an "ugly Holiday" item of clothing for our partner equaling one large. Based on Craftster definitions a Large is an item that takes 3 or more hours to complete. It can be the traditional sweater, or a skirt, vest, etc! I love the whole concept and who can do it better than us crafters!

1. PMs should be labeled "Ugly Holiday Sweater Swap" with the appropriate action - Signup, send, receive.

3. I reserve the right to refuse anyone who has a history of poor communication, late sending, or not meeting swap requirements in any other ways.

4. Please post in the thread regularly so we know you're still around and kicking; also please communicate upfront with your partner and organizer if there may be/are any issues with late sending. Communication will be noted in feedback.

Can we get the sweater made for someone other than ourselves? I was thinking about my husband since he doesn't have one.

Absolutely! I'll make adjustments to the Q to keep that in mind.  Smiley

I'm going to fill out my Q this evening. I'll have to ask my husband what kind of things he prefers. This is going to be so fun!

Im interested,  but im worried about commiting myself to making a whole garment. Last year my husband wanted me to make ugly xmas sweaters for the family, needless to say the dog is the only one who has one, lol.

It's going to be a lot of fun! It can be as complicated or as simple as you want it to be, as long as you do the minimum of a large, which is 3 hours of work. Speaking for myself personally, I'm definitely going to be purchasing a base piece of clothing to work from, as I am horrible at constructing garments from scratch.  Cheesy

Got my Q sent in. I'm definitely going to be buying my base garment too! I'm not good at sewing clothing, and I can't knit or crochet a sweater. I Can't wait until partners. So excited!
