2013 Kit and Kaboodle Swap

:cheer:cheerAug. 1 -Sept. 15, 2013 :cheer:cheer

It's back!!!! All the crochet goodness that can fit in a bag/box or tote -- the C'ville Kit Swap!! Sm Afghans, Tote Bags, Placemats, Rugs, Curtains, Dolls, Shawls or Doilies … want to create a memory but don’t want to brave the stores or plan the details let someone else do the hard part and just enjoy some craft time….

General Swap Requirements: Each swapper is required to send one crochet project kit, which includes all of the supplies needed to complete a small to medium size project (pattern, hooks, yarn, supplies/notions), plus a nifty carryall (tote bag, storage container), whatever cool ideas you come up with) to carry it in. $25.00 minimum not including postage

This is an exchange where getting to know your partner is very important!! The biggest part of having a fun exchange for both people involved is good communication. Email your partner at least once a week. Read their survey and ask questions. Put together a kit personalized just for them. Don't buy your kit supplies until after you have a partner assignment and know a bit about who you are sending to!

Swap Dates: This swap starts 1 AUGUST 2013and ends 15 SEPTEMBER 2013. All packages must be received by the ending date, so the mailing deadline for this exchange is 8 SEPTEMBER 2013. All packages MUST be in the mail by 8 SEPTEMBER 2013 (mailing deadline).

Remember: Crochetville admin limits Villagers to two swaps at one time. If you are already signed up for two swaps, one must be completed before the Resolution Swap starts for you to be eligible to swap. See the Swap Guidelines. A swap will count as completed if you have mailed your final package and delivery confirmation information shows your package has been received OR your swap partner has posted a thank-you in the swap thread.




Please Note 2013General Swap Guidelines:

 

All swappers must read the 2013 guidelines and the Copyright/Trademark Guidelines for Swaps and RAOKs. These guidelines apply to ALL swaps at Crochetville. Be sure you understand the guidelines and can follow them before signing up for this swap.


 

This swap may contain additional guidelines and requirements as stated below.


 

Contacting Your Swap Hostess


 

I prefer to be contacted via PM/Private Message and or email for all matters related to this swap. To send a PM, just click my username and select the option to Send Private Message. Please send emails to kidge AT ymail dot com. Please be sure to enter Kit Swap 2013 in the subject line of your message.



Items to Be Exchanged:
Each swapper will send to their partner a package containing a package worth a minimum of $25 (excluding shipping) designed to meet your partners preferences as listed in the survey. This will be different for each person but should be personalized

Other goodies (like tea, coffee, candy, thread, etc) are optional. Just remember if you send more than the minimum requirements, your partner might not.

Important Dates:

 

  • Sign-ups begin July 18, 2013
  • Sign ups end July 30, 2013 at 5PM EST. Sign up time is short, don't delay!

  • Partner will be assigned to you by August 1, 2013

  • The postmark-by deadline is September 8, 2013

How to Sign Up for the The Whole Kit and Kaboodle Swap:


1. Please submit a survey if you want to participate in this exchange. (See the second post in this thread for survey information.) Submit the survey via the method listed above for contacting your Swap Hostess. Include the swap name and your username in the subject of the email. I will send you a confirmation email when I receive your survey, and your name will be added to the list of exchangers posted below. Surveys can be submitted until July 30, 2013.

 

2. It is not required that you answer all the questions on the survey (except for full name, Crochetville user name, mailing address, and email address), but it is a good way for your partner to know your other preferences.


 

3. Swap partner assignments will be e-mailed to you by August 1, 2013.


 

4. Within one week of receiving your swap partner assignment, post in the swap thread to say you have received your partner. To make swap management easier, you should also contact your Swap Hostess to let her know you've received your partner.
 

5. If you have a problem with your partner or an item you receive, please DO NOT post complaints to the swap board. Please contact the Swap Hostess privately.

 

6. Since we are an international group, everyone is more than welcome to participate. That means that your swap partner may live across the world and packages may take longer to arrive and cost more to ship. Keep this in mind when mailing items.


 

Sending in a survey means that you have read the rules for this swap as well as the 2012 guidelines and the Copyright/Trademark Guidelines for Swaps and agree to them.

If necessary, and with your prior permission, survey information may also be provided to a Swap Angel sending an Angel Package (that is, a Crochetville member sending a replacement for a swap package not received). Your personal contact information (name, email address, mailing address) may also be used to obtain any specific items you have requested (gift certificate, digital pattern through Ravelry, etc.).
