Thanks Snephanie for doing the summer swap for us! i know everyone had a great time, and it went so smooth- just a couple of hiccups
Since the summer swap is coming to a close, a few kh'ers have already expressed a desire for another swap! Both Nobones and I stepped forward to organize the next swap. We decided she would do a holiday swap and i will do this swap :cheering:
Swap time line is easy. Sign-ups close [SIZE=3][COLOR=red]August 18, 2007[/COLOR][/SIZE]. It is a one month swap, with your package being shipped no later then [COLOR=red][B]October 1, 2007[/B][/COLOR]. Please be timely!
here is the plan:
- each person would pick a theme/idea/color they love (i.e. roses, mermaid, green, fast cars, cookies, lady bugs ...)
- favourite fibers (and allergies too! got to be a responsible swapper
- one technique or particular type of pattern they haven't tried but would like to[li]multiple options would be even better, and make it much more of a surprise!
the secret sender would then be responsible for doing the following:
[/li][li]dye, spin, or buy yarn in their selected price range and theme[/li][li]buy at least one pattern that highlights the technique their receiver wants to learn (or possible an exact pattern)[/li][li]keep everything in theme! (edible goodies not-withstanding
optional of course (as usual) would be little goodies like stitch markers (handmade or bought), chocolate, teas, special regional treats or favourite candies .. whatever pops into your fabulous head! the idea of the receiver giving the sender at least two theme ideas to choose from would make the anticipation and surprise a little greater, and in my not so humble opinion, even better.[/li]
this initial post is to get your creative juices flowing, and time to come up with theme ideas to give your sender choices. feel free to share in the thread ideas for themes, or ways to incorporate themes!
I'll post the questionaire next, so you can mull over your answers and have plenty of time to fill it out
