2017 Scavenger Hunt Swap


Happy New Year!!

We are kicking off 2017 with a bang and a brand new swap! 

Many of you have mentioned that you are "multi-crafters". In addition to sewing and quilting, you hand or machine embroider, crochet, make jewelry, papercraft - just to name a few. This swap will allow you to use any of those skills to create a handmade item!




Here's how it will work:
  • For this swap, the same six letter word will be given to each participant.  
  • You will then select a small sewing related item or other crafty item based on your partner's hobbies for each letter of the word.
  • Items may come from your stash as long as they are new, unused or in excellent condition. 
  • Participants may not ask for a particular item or items. 
  •  Items sent are strictly the sender's choice.
  • One item must be handmade. 
  • The item you create can be created using one or more of your favorite handicraft skills.
For example, let's say the word is  "TIMERS".  The items you may find for your partner may be:

T    Threader
I     Iron Cleaner
M   Machine Embroidered Mug Rug ( handmade)
E    Eight Vintage Buttons
R    Really Red Fat Quarter
S    Seam Ripper

Have fun with descriptive words ...  get as creative as you like!

Registration for this swap is open NOW and will close Sunday, JANUARY 8, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. EST.

Participants will receive an email with the Scavenger Hunt Word, partner's name and contact information on or before January 10, 2017

The Mailing Deadline for this swap will be 
MONDAY. FEBRUARY 13, 2017

As always, good communication with your partner will make this swap a successful one, and you may even become great crafty friends along the way.

 ****** IT IS VERY IMPORTANT ****** 

 that you ADD your partner's email address and craftingwithlisamarie@gmail.com to your 
email contacts so that important emails regarding 
this swap DO NOT end up in your SPAM folder

YOU WILL CONTACT THE PERSON ASSIGNED TO YOU VIA EMAIL THREE (3) TIMES DURING THIS SWAP
  • UPON KNOWING WHO THEY ARE to introduce yourself and exchange mailing addresses and maybe a few interesting facts about yourself. Discuss with your partner the crafts you like to participate in, favorite colors, designs, etc. 
  • UPON MAILING YOUR SWAP PACKAGE to let them know when they should expect the swap package. Include a tracking number, if one is available. 
  • UPON RECEIVING YOUR A SWAP PACKAGE to say THANK YOU! 
Please keep in mind by joining this swap, your partner is counting on you to create and send a swap package.  If for any reason you are unsure you will be able to meet this deadline, please consider joining us in one of our future swaps.

We all understand that life sometimes unexpectedly gets in the way of fun and if it does,  you are required to contact the Host of this swap and the person you are assigned to let them know your swap is going to be delayed.

Sadly, anyone who does not mail a swap item to their partner will NOT be able to participate in future swaps.

This swap is open to everyone regardless of craft, skill level or location.  

I will always do my best to match participants based on skill level and mailing location of their choice.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me directly.

I hope you will join us!
