There are a few changes!

Swap name:
Unconditional Swapper Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: seaofstars (Organizers will change every month)
Sign-up date range: No closing date
Date to send item by: Must send out item within 2 weeks of picking a partner
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Heck No!!
Non-U.S. participants allowed? Of course!
All ages allowed? Or 18+?  Sure, but make sure your parents are fine with it!
Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders" list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

For those of you who joined this swap in December, if:

    * You have been picked twice already in December then go ahead and post 3 new wishes if you want.
    * You have not been picked even once; you can post the same list or a new one in January.

Please remember to send in the form even if you had a list in December, I am a new organizer and i don't have your information!

You must PM the organizer when you repost your list, so she knows that you have done so and can check it. PLEASE DO NOT post anything other than your wishlist and a little bit of info about you, any questions or comments can go here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=50691.0


  • Each person interested will post a list of maximum THREE items they want. (Try and list items that you cannot make, but would like to have). These items must be reasonable; it must not be ones that would cost someone a truckload of money to make for you!
  • Once you have given your three items good thought, reply to this thread and post your 3 wishes, along with any other information that will be helpful for those looking to craft for you. (Color preferences, style, size, design, etc)
  •   Those coming along this thread will scroll and read all sign ups, and decide if they want to craft for someone. Those who sign up as well are free to craft for another.
  •   The catch to this is you cannot expect anything in return for your efforts except THANK YOU!!!. That is why it's called an Unconditional swap. You can hope that someone else or maybe that same person would want to make you something as well and then craft for you. And knowing the great craftsters here, I'm sure everyone will receive something.
  •   Each month the organizer will change. All information of the swap will be transferred to the next organizer. An announcement will be posted about this change. This month (Jan. 1st to Jan. 30th is seaofstars) From the first of every other month, a new organizer will be in charge.
  •   Each person can be picked 2 TIMES! This means that only 2 people can send to someone. Within those 2 people, the person may receive all 3 items. I.e. "A" and "B" are sending to "X". A chooses to send 1 item off the list, while B chooses to send the other 2 items. Therefore fulfilling all 3 wishes of "X". Now, it is not necessary to fulfill all three 3 wishes..."A" could send just one item and "B" could choose to send one item thereby fulfilling two wishes on "X's" wish list.
  • When you post your wish list be sure to mention the country you are in on that post. For example:

    I am in India.
    Wish 1
    Wish 2
    Wish 3

  •   Once you have been picked twice your name will be crossed out in red on the list. You can be on the list again the next month, when the organizer changes.
  •   The crossed out names can be back on the list once the organizer changes (Every month)
  •   As soon as anyone picks a partner, you have to ship them, their stuff within 2 weeks.
  • If more than one person picks a person and wants to make them the same item, then the person who Pmed the organizer first will get preference to make that item.
  •   It is not necessary but I would appreciate if you could PM me with the DC number or scan the receipt and email me a copy.
  •   All in all this is sort of a good karma swap. Give unconditionally is your motto my fellow craftsters.
  •   All regular swap rules do apply for this. All of you who sign up will be screened to see if you are eligible to join the swap. Including Newbies.
  • Positive and Negative feedback will be given for this swap. Your feedback will reflect the number of people you send to that month.
  • When you pm me your wish choices, please include their craftster name, wish # and wish.
*** NEW ***
 I will be posting who has chosen who. There's been a lot of talk about flaking and since this swap has a higher potential for flaking than others, I've taken the suggestion to post who is taking who's wishes in a format similar to the Ongoing Wish Swaps. If you really want to keep it a secret, thats fine, just let me know when you pm with your choice(s). I am just giving this a try to see how it goes, the next organizer may choose not to do it this way. My intention is to cut down on the amount of flaking that is happening with this swap.

Feel free to post your lists after you send me your info.

When you have been picked PLEASE crossout and change the colour of your post accordingly. If you need help with that, feel free to PM me.

Thanks for bearing with me!  Grin

I am in the US, chilly Michigan to be exact.

My Wish List:

1. I'd love some type of blanket or lap quilt to keep me warm this season. I like black and white together, or turquoise and brown. It doesn't have to be themed, but I do like birds, retro prints and trees/leaves. Or you can just surprise me based on my likes.   Grin please note.. I can't have fringed or knotted fleece! my dog thinks its candy and tends to eat it! Thanks Alice!  Grin

2. I'd love a trinket bag/package/whatever with some surprsie goodies in it that you just know i'd love! - Merci, Merci! Miss. MyrnaLoy! You've totally got me wondering now!  Grin

3. A Learn to Crochet Kit!!!! Now that I've gotten the hang of knitting and I MUST learn to crochet! I NEED to learn! hehe Grin

About Me:
I'm basically a hippie girl.. lovin' the earth and all its naturey-wonders. I like boho/vintagey style and have quirky taste, but good quirky i think! I like all colors, but am not a fan of neons, gold or pastels. I'm pretty easy to please. You can check my blog for more info about me and my likes.

Thanks!  Smiley

Hi! I'm in Illinois, USA.

1. A small Valentines wreath.   They have some at JoAnn Fabrics that I like - they're heart-shaped and make entirely of red fake rose blossoms.  However, they're big, and I would like something small to hang in my apartment or in my cubicle at work.

2. Earrings.  I dont wear danglies.  (I know there goes all the fun!)  If you can make stud earrings, Ill wear just about any color.  I tend to prefer simple shapes that blend/finish off my look rather than cutesy earrings that draw a lot of attention.  I have no metal allergies, so any posts are OK.
THANK YOU, Bobolink!!  Can't wait to see 'em!

3. Checkbook cover.  Mine is cheapo and peeling.  I have castle-themed checks and would love a medieval-themed checkbook cover.  My checks tear along the left side, not along the top, so I need to be able to insert the checkbook on the side of the cover.  I am OK with any materials; leather is OK by me.
THANK YOU, kmsmaverick!!  I'm so thrilled that you chose me!!

I'm 27, single, Christian, conservative.  I love muted colors and simple elegance.

Woo! Approved!

I'm in Colorado:

1. Gryffindor stuff! I've decided that I'm Gryffindor (and I've only read the first three books! So no spoilers Wink )

2. A stuffy! A kitty, owl, penguin... anything cuuute!

3. knitted handwarmers like these: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=62360.0 only in black. If that pattern isn't possible, surprise me with a pattern!
Another pattern: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=67711.0

I'm an almost 21 year old gal that likes to dress in black and sing karaoke. I'm addicted to craftster and am hoping to have my small business up here soon.

1. Yarn- I am just learning to crochet so anything is fine---I can't seem to get past hats, scarves and wristwarmers. Grin Lots of practice and not much yarn to complete.

2. Fabric- bright colored, cotton or cotton blend, for kids quilts

3. a journal with blank pages, I received one in another swap and it is full. I really like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=57967.0
or kit to learn to make one

I love blues and purples. The ocean is my favorite place to be. I spend a lot of time either crafting or on craftster. I am learning to crochet for the first time, I spend a lot of time at the hospital with my nephew and it really helps to pass the time.  I also make quilts for the local Ronald McDonald house. If you wanna know more PM me

Happy New Year!!!
I am in NV, USA!

Honestly this month, I have no idea what to put down! Hmmm...

1. Here is a broad call for supplies-- fabrics, notions, old magazines, patterns, iron-on sheets, embrioidery blanks, shrinky dinks, yarn (I'm trying to learn how to knit, I knit my first square!), anything you please, really!  You can never have enough craft crap, right? Thank you, orange_sunset, I am so ecxited!!!

2. A hoodie (pullover/zip up) with a cute applique or stencil on it.  I love the nature like stuff, more muted than crazy and out there.  Womens L, or Mens M.

3. A Surprise! I don't know what to put on here as my last wish, but I loooove surprises Smiley Thank you Daydreamer, surprises are the BEST! Smiley

Hmmm, about me I am 24, have a great husband and a 1 year old daughter.  I live in Las Vegas, we love cats and our a chihuahua.  I love Craftster and spend a lot of my free time on here!

I live in Florida, US

1.  I would absolutely love a new messenger bag. I am tall (5'10") so the strap has to be pretty long to fit me right. I don't like pastel colors, I do like burgandy, purple, blue, orange, red, black, white....not all at once though....

2.  Beads, beads, and more beads!  And for that matter, any jewelry supplies....

3.  And of coarse I would love your specialty. Whatever you make best and want to show off or promote!

I am a 30 year old work at home mom of a 2 and a half year old. I make jewelry, journals, and soaps.   In my past life I was an art teacher. I grew up in New York and hate Florida!  My style is a bit punk, a bit rock and a bit....well, mom....I am very easy going but at the same time very organized.  Hope this helps!
