[ENDED] Crochetville Doily Swap - LAST DAY to mail your doily IS TODAY!!

281 posts in this topic

We're going to have two separate groups of people making doilies this time around. One for 'small doilies - 8 inches in diameter or less' and one for 'large doilies - over 8 inches in diameter'. Be sure you sign up for the appropriate grouping.

 

Here is a button you can use for this swap. :D

Basic guidelines for the Doily Swap:

 

1. Please complete the Doily Swap survey no later than June 25th.

 

2. Exchanges will last 50 days, so you will have nearly two full months to mail items to your assignments.

 

3. For this swap I would like to match people up, so you will make a doily for one person, and receive a doily from the same person in return. This of course may change if an odd number of people sign up for a swap grouping. In either case, you will know who is making your doily.

 

4. This swap runs from July 1st through August 31st. However, the doilies should be in the mail no later than August 20th in order to arrive at their destination by August 31st. A list will be posted on the board with the names of people who did not send doilies to their swap partners and they will be prohibited from participating in future swaps.

 

5. E-mail the coordinator, Julie, at julie[at]withahook.com when you send or receive a package so that she can update your record.

 

6. Thank you’s are a requirement, and can be sent via e-mail, e-card, or postal mail, and of course posted here at Crochetville. I ask that everyone remember that what they receive took time to make and the sender really should be thanked. The sender would also like to know their package arrived safely, so please get in touch with them somehow.

 

7. Place “Crochetville Swap†somewhere on your package so that the recipient can jump in excitement when it arrives.

 

8. Since we are an international group and everyone is more than welcome to participate, that means that someone in your swap group may live across the world. When you sign up for a swap, I will ask you if you can ship overseas.

 

9. Most importantly – have fun!

OK...I've already filled out the survey because I'm super excited about this swap!!! Can't ya tell? Anyhows, a couple of questions:

 

~ Can we use any size thread? There wasn't an option for what size of thread on the form.

 

~ Will we have the option to have more than 1 partner if we wish?

 

Sorry to be a pain but I want to follow the rules.

 

Due to lots of travel plans in July & August, I won't be shipping overseas for this swap but I will again in the future.

I think any size thread is fine as long as the finished size matches (more or less) which group you're in (8" or less, over 8").

 

As for multiple partners-- Julie?

I am SO in on this one!!!! What a great reason to make a doily. I just love making things for other people :) Doilies are good to make in the summer too so you don't have a big project sitting on your lap making you hot!!!

Are straight from the pattern book doilies welcome, or is this for the fancy, exotic ones? I don't want to sign up only to disappoint my partner because I'm a virgin---when it comes to doilies that is! :2blush

Wheeeeee... I just got back from a fun trip to the grocery store.

Yes, any size thread is just fine. I really hadn't thought much about more than one partner - thinking that doilies in general can take a while to make and we don't want anyone overwhelmed with having to make more than one. Let's get more people signed up and then I'll do a special survey for stuff like that, okay?

ME TOO~!! :hook

Thank you Vera! I'll be assigning names around the 28th or so. Definitely in time before the start of the swap. :P

Any doily you find that you think you want to make is fine, keeping in mind the size you signed up to make. There are tons of great free doily patterns on Crochet Pattern Central, and even Wal-Mart has some great doily books in their very limited selection so they should be easy find.

 

 

 

I'll be working on a button later tonight. :D

I've been waiting to sign up for something, so I'm really excited. I don't have a digital camera (yet) so I haven't been able to share anything with the group. So I'm happy to actually participate.

 

I swap squares with another group and I think it's so much fun. It's a little surprise just for you. (My husband thinks I'm freak:loco, but who cares.)

Survey sent...now to find my pattern book...:think I got one of those 'easy' books at Walmart and have been collecting thread for some reason. I see it on sale, I buy it. :eek I know, I know yarn/thread addiction is a bad thing. At least when you can't get into your closet.

Alright, call me ditzy, having a blonde moment, etc etc etc....but I forgot what size doily I signed up for. I know I clicked no preference at first but did I change that to large or small? I really don't care either way but I would like to know so I can start planning! I was so excited I didn't even print out the survey that I had completed! DUH!!!

On another note: are the doilies supposed to be round, or can they be square, oblong, etc.? Told ya I was a pain!

 

OK! I've just decided on my pattern so if I didn't choose the large doily (8 inches or more) then change it please to LARGE doily. Thanking you in advance. You are the bestest mods in the net world!!! :devil

I think any shape is fine... but that might be something you'll want to talk to your swap partner about when they are assigned. Like: did you specifically want a round doily, or is another shape okay? :)

 

You guys are making me want to sign up, but I just don't think I have the time this go 'round.
