  • Craft forum swap summer 2007

    In response to the enthusiastic swap thread we have decided to run a crafting swap:
    The format will be as follows:
    each member who signs up for the swap will put together a kit. The kit should comprise of a selection of materials related to your own favourite craft. (eg. a card maker would enclose all the card stock and backing paper, peel off's cut outs etc. A beader would put together a bracelet kit or similar)
    You should enclose simple instructions to enable your secret crafter to complete the project. This is a great way to get to try out different crafts.
    The price limit would be approx £5.00.
    If your craft is not suitable for creating a kit, then you may still sign up and submit a completed product.
    You will be told who you are making for but not who is making a kit for you.
    Sign ups are open to those who have been a member of the forum for one month + on the close of sign ups.
    Please do not sign up if you feel that you may not have the time to complete the task. We do not want dissapointed crafters.
    To sign up please submit your name to the thread below and pm me your name and address.
    Sign ups close at 12 noon on friday 6th July. You will be notified as soon as possible after that time, the name of your recipient. Kits should be sent out by friday 20th July (start of the summer hols!)
    Please post a picture of your completed item in the gallery once you have received your kit.

          Sounds like a great idea BBD but can I just check that I understand it properly....

          1. Someone would send me a kit with instructions (and I'd send someone else a kit too).

          2. I'd then make up the kit

          3. I'd then send the completed item to someone else not the original kit sender.

          Have I got it?

            I think that you send somebody a kit and they send you one - you will know who you are sending them too but you won't know who is sending to you. The idea is that you try crafts that you haven't before and then you get to keep the item you have made - hopefully sparking off an interest in a new craft! I think thats right anyway - BBD will tell you if not!

            correct!!! sorry swirly.... i did it again and pressed edit not quote!!! BBD

                    I take it the £5 bit is the limit on the cost of the materials in putting the pack together?
