Hi everyone! It's time for a new fun & funky C'ville swap! The Accessories Swap!! It's time to get out the ol' hooks and be as creative as you wanna be! :cheer :jumpyay Be bold! Be wild! Be Creative!
Signups closed on May 31st at noon. Before partners are assigned, I will check to make sure that everyone who signed up is in good standing on all other C'ville swaps. :)

The Accessories Swap is a great chance to try something new, or to show your creative talents! Accessories can include jewelry items like earrings, necklaces, pins, or bracelets, or belts, hair clips or scrunchies, beaded or freeform scarves, etc. There are all sorts of patterns on the internet and in books for crocheting with wire, beads, jute, clay, even plastic bags! Let this exchange be your chance to try something new!!

Each person will make and send TWO items to their partner (a pair of earrings counts as ONE item), which should take a minimum of 5 hours crochet time.

The swap will start June 1st.. Each person will send out two accessory items to their partner to be RECEIVED by July 31st. Items should be mailed by July 20th, to be received on time. Your partner's preferences will be emailed to you along with your partner's name on June 1st.

Here are the rules:

Rules - Please read them ALL

1. Please submit a survey (link listed above) if you want to participate in this exchange. I will send you a confirmation email, and your name will be added to the list of exchangers posted below.

2. It is not required that you answer all the questions on the survey (except for name, address, and C'ville nickname) but it is a good way for your partner to know your other preferences, favorite color, allergies, etc. :hook The more you include on your survey, the more apt you are to get something you really like! Please complete the survey before sign ups close on May 31st.

3. Exchange assignments will be e-mailed to you on June 1st. Partners must receive their packages by July 31st, so please mail no later than July 20th (Or earlier for international packages) to ensure exchanges are received by the deadline. Please email the exchange coordinator, Juli, at juliwyant[at]bellsouth.net when you receive your exchange partner's information so that she knows you received it.

4. E-mail the coordinator, Juli at juliwyant[at]bellsouth.net when you send and receive your exchange so that she can keep record of who sent and received.

5. Please thank your partner for her thoughtfulness when you receive your exchange item. It will make his or her day. Thank you’s must be posted to the Crochetville message board, but posting links to your blog for photos is acceptable. Thank you's are REQUIRED!!

6. Make sure your postage and receiver’s address is correct before mailing. Mark your package with “Crochetville Accessories Exchange”. It is highly recommend to mail with delivery confirmation just in case the mail is delayed or lost.

7 If your partner does not receive from you by July 31st, C'ville administration may decide to exclude you from other exchanges until it is received, or for a certain amount of time. There are exceptions due to certain circumstances. If for some reason you will be unable to fulfill your exchange commitment, please let me know ASAP -- this is VERY important -- so that I can make arrangements to reassign your partner. If your package will be sent late, please advise your partner and me ASAP.

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

9. Most importantly – have fun! :yay :cheer
