Swap name: Unconditional Swapper Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: veludo (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): NOPE!!!
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 February:

Feel free to post any 3 wishes you please, they do not have to be the same as last month!

Please remember to send in the form even if you had a list in February, 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 (Mar. 1st to Mar. 31st is veludo) 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.

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 ***
Like L did in February 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." L

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.


note: some people are not sending all the following information when signing in the swap. i don't have to be searching for your e-mails or sending pm asking for all the info. from now on i won't be accepting any sign in that isn't fully completed, organizing this swap already takes up a lot of time, i don't need any extra work from it. if everyone cooperate things will be easier for all.

Hi! I'm in Toronto, Canada.  Cheesy

My three wishes are:

1. cupcake or sweets themed stitch markers THANK YOU, ASCHNEBLY!!!

2. paper & ephemera - anything cool would be awesome! I would love to have papers that reflect your personality. Anything with smallish prints on them would be fantastic.  Scrapbook paper, washi, chiyogami etc.

3. fabric! I have no fabric stash and I want to make kanzashi flowers (thanks to starpist's fab diy kit). I would love your scraps (but enough to make one flower!)

This is one tired chickie here. Someone find me a bed... or a coffee. Between work and volunteering with a youth theatre group, i'm pooped! Show's over this time next week though so I'll have time for CRAFTING again! YAY!  I love anything themed along the lines of fantasy, music, hearts, stars, cutesy flowers, happy patterns, animals, fruit or dragonflies.  Thank you guys again for taking the time to look at all this shizz!

Hi, I'm Brianne and I'm in Alberta, Canada.

My three wishes are:

. Something cool for my house! I just moved out. I still need something for my walls. I adore pin up girls, biology and old school tattoos. After reading the reason behind swallow tattoos I think they are amazing. My bedroom is decorated with anatomical hearts and really rich jewel tones (sari silks and beaded cushions and velvet quilts). As for the rest of the apartment, it hasn't found it's style yet. It definitely has that classic 'I just moved out on my own' look to it.

. Hair clips that are rockabilly/punk rock inspired. I have fine hair. THANK YOU chrissy.eew!!!

. Fabric. Vintage, cowboy, day of the dead, cute printed jersey knits or anything you think would go with this: https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=36275&sort=1&cat=500&page=1
I want to make a quilt and that is my inspiration fabric. (I am obviously just addicted to fabric!)

About me: I am a first year English major and looking forward to many more years of literature studies. I adore anatomical hearts, lungs and x-rays. (that's the ex-biology major in me). I would describe my style as simple with a twist. Usually jeans and a t-shirt but I love the occasional quirky item. In the summer I am a full blown hippie and in the winter I am more punk rock/rockabilly. I like to try and combine the two. Leather sandals + jeans + leopard print = me.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! To anyone who is kind enough to grant any of my wishes! I adore you craftsters!

2. Sewing stuff. Zippers, LACE, Ribbon, Buttons, Thread, Interfacing, Fabric. Solid colors, animal prints, japan-ish, polka dots, anything..

3. Surprise me! You could make anything based or themed on my likes down there or pm me.

About me: I'm 19 years old, 20 in April. I don't have too much girly stuff and I'm starting to love it so I'm trying to incorporate that into my style lately. I love fantasy things like Lord of the Rings, dragons, castles, cats, hearts, ruffles, polka dots, skulls, leopard, fish, plaid, checkers, bows, Napoleon Dynomite, furry-ness, lacey-ness, cute anime or cartoon style animals, Japanese or Asian style, video games like rpgs.

I really love color combos of rubys, purples, pinks, oranges.. and color combos of red, black, and leopard. I also love the rockabilly/psychobilly/punk/lolita look.

Colors: Black, white, red, pink, orange, purple, green.. I love all colors though.

Thanks in advance to anyone willing to craft for me! Cheesy

Hi, I'm from New York and here is my list:

- Fabric - Lately I've been buying up all the fabric that I see. I need to save up some money but I'd hate to give up adding to my stash  Cheesy

- Paper - For scrapbooking or for bookbinding. I welcome any kind, especially oragami paper.

- Sublime patterns

Thank you in advance to anyone who picks me  Grin

About me: I'm 22 and I'm going for my masters in early education. I work at a daycare center in a classroom filled with four year olds. I love to knit [beginner], crochet, cook, and sew. I want to broaden my crafting horizons though so I want to learn some new things. I love dark gem-like colors, especially blues, plums, and reds.  I'm a simple girly-girl. I think this picture best sums up my style: http://static.flickr.com/31/63660763_ae87a69fec.jpg?v=0

I'm in England.

My Wishes

Foresty themed pillows or pillowcases ( trees, deer, owls, mushrooms, etc. )

Fawn stuffy ( https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/36443fawn1.jpg )

Courderoy messanger bag ( burgundy or green would be cool )

To anyone who chooses me to craft for, thanks in advance!

About me: I'm from Los Angeles but am living in England for a few months. I'm having packages mailed there but if someone wants to craft for me and really wants to send to the States, I can send my home ( US ) addy. I'll be living with my boyfriend, who lives in England. My name is Jana, I'm 25 years old. I like green, browns, and pink when combined with those colors. I'm obsessed with travelling and with Romania, Russia, and Poland. I like Victorian looking things, forest themed things, Hansel and Gretal, things with trees on it. I don't like: metallics, almost all things felted, fun fur, and when people clap at the end of movies.

Hi.  I'm from Illinois, USA.

My wishes:
1. Necklaces, a few pretty necklaces that I can wear everyday/to work.  Nothing too gaudy or super chunky.  Thank you princess duki!

2. A decorated pen.  I have a guestbook for my wedding, but no pen and I am not excited about spending $20 for a cheap pen at a party store just because it has flowers on it!  So a fancy wedding guestbook type pen would be great.  Our color is probably going to be dark red.  Guestbook has cream flowers embossed on the cover.

3. Surprise me!

About me:  I'm 25.  I work as an engineer and I'm getting married in September.  So alot of my free time is going toward wedding planning.  My favorite colors are purple, pink, blue, and red.  Least favorite are orange and navy blue.  I love to sew and do cross stitch.  I like animals and cats are my absolute favorite!  I love hello kitty.

Thanks to anyone that picks me!!
