:cheer~The Kitchen Swap~:clap

The first swap of 2008 here at C'ville is the Kitchen Swap -- dishcloths, towels, potholders -- anything for the kitchen!

For this swap, partners will send a package containing a minimum of 2 crocheted kitchen items, and 2 balls of crochet cotton to their partner.

Please note: Kitchen items like dishcloths and potholders should be made with cotton yarn, not acrylic. Acrylic doesn't soak up water, and can melt when exposed to heat.

Please read through all the rules before signing up:

1. Submit a survey (See 2nd post for Survey information) if you want to participate in this exchange. Surveys should be emailed to me at juliwyant [at] bellsouth [dot] net. 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 Jan. 30th, 2008.

2. It is not required that you answer all the questions on the survey (except for name, address, and C'ville nickname,etc), but it is a good way for your partner to know your other preferences, favorite color, allergies, etc.

3. Exchange assignments will be e-mailed to you by Feb 1st. Packages must be POSTMARKED BY March 1st. **Delivery Confirmation is required whenever it is available (all domestic packages), and the delivery confirmation number must be emailed to the swap coordinator, Juli (Craftimama). A Customs # is required for all foreign packages and must also be emailed to the coordinator.** The customs # will be listed on your postal receipt when you mail your package, or on the Customs form you put on your package and is proof that your package was mailed. All packages should be received by the end of the swap on March 15th.

4. E-mail the coordinator, Juli at the above email address, when you receive your partner information at the start of the swap, and when you send and receive your exchange item(s) 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 yous MUST be posted on the swap thread, but you can can post links to your blog for photos, etc., if you choose. Thank you's are REQUIRED!!** Not only does it hurt someone's feelings not to receive a thank you, but your partner and the swap coordinator don't know a package has been received if you don't post!!

6. Make sure your postage and receiver's address is correct before mailing. Mark your package with "Crochetville Kitchen Swap". Do not forget that delivery confirmation or a customs ID # is required , and must be emailed to the swap coordinator. This is not only proof of mailing, but enables you to trace the package if it is lost in the mail.

7. If you have a problem with your partner or an item you recieve, please DO NOT post complaints to the swap board. Please PM or email the swap coordinator privately.

8. If your package is not postmarked by the POSTMARK BY date of March 1st, you will be subject to the consequences listed in the Swap Guidelines post. Please contact the swap coordinator BEFORE the mailing deadline passes if there is a problem that will delay your package.

9. 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.

10. Most importantly have fun! Happy Swapping!!

**Sending in a survey means that you have read all the rules and agree to them. **

I'm in! I checked out CPC and there are so many fun things to crochet for the kitchen, I thought I'd give it a try. I have made hot pads in the past and enjoyed that a lot. This should be great fun! Patty
