Details of swap:
It's officially 2019 and the 2019 Craftster Meetup, aka the Asheville Adventure, is coming up in just a few months!  This swap is intended to help folks who will meet for for the first time in Asheville, to get to know a new friend ahead of time.  It is limited to just those attending the 2019 Meetup.*** This 'get-to-know-you-swap' is set up in 2 parts, with 2 different send dates.  (Don't worry, one of them just requires a stamp for postage!)  

***Before we dive further into the details... For those of you saying, "I want to participate, but I'm not going to the Meetup!", please feel free to host a separate swap with a similar format!  Craftster can always use more fantastic swaps, bringing more of us makers together.  Remember, great swaps don't just happen.  They happen because YOU make them happen!

Part 1: Write your partner a letter or greeting card, telling them a bit about yourself; where you live, some of your favorite crafts to make, and something you are currently working on, AND include a new blank postcard from your locale, to help your partner learn about where you're from.  You are welcome to make your card, but it is not required.  Store bought are just fine.  The send date for this portion nice flat item is January 26th, 2019.  

Part 2:  Now that you've learned a bit more about your partner, it's time for the second component of this swap!  You will make 1 Medium crafted item, based on the things you learned about them in their letter, as well as any normal swap stalking via their Craftster profile and Pinterest boards.  The package must also include 1 craft supply for your partner, based on their favorite crafts (and preferences like favorite colors), and 1 treat from your area, such as a locally made candy or tea.  The send date for this package is February 16th.

Completing those two parts is all you need to complete the swap for positive feedback.  Cheesy  However, for anyone who wishes, you may complete an optional Part 3, which will not be counted in your swap feedback, and is completely voluntary...

Optional Part 3:  Craft 1 Small final item for your partner, to give to them in person in Asheville at the Meetup!  Perhaps even using some of the supply they sent to you!  As stated above, this is completely optional, and must be decided individually between partners.  If someone forgets to bring their optional Part 3 item, nothing will be noted on swap feedback or anything like that.  If you and your partner choose not to do this, no worries!  The Meetup is supposed to be fun, not work.  Do whatever works best for you & your partner.



If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Asheville Adventure - The Swap!

Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country? (Please consider this. I believe there are only 3 international participants, and I may not be able to partner you with folks you don't know well, if you never swap outside your own country.)

Confirm that are at least 16 years old: (YES/NO)

Please list the Craftster members attending the Meetup you feel you already know well.  This could be someone you've swapped with multiple times, or even met up with.  My goal is to partner you with folks you don't know well, YET!  The list of folks attending is in the first post of the Asheville Adventure thread.

Please list any Craftster members attending the Meetup that you WISH TO KNOW BETTER.  (No guarantees you'll be paired with them, but I will take it into account.)

You cannot give me too much work; to accumulate work has almost become a passion with me: my study is so full of it now, that there is hardly an inch of room for any more. I shall have to throw out a wing soon. (J.K.Jerome)
