Invite Your Partner 2021

GALLERY!!

Let’s dance!!

Welcome to the first Invite Your Partner Swap for 2021. This swap is one that is tailormade for you, even down to your choice of partner! For this swap, you can invite a Lettuce Craft member to swap with you, or you can put your name on a list of members looking for a partner.

The swap requirements are up to you and your partner to decide. You can make the swap as big or as small as you like – anything from an ATC to an astrolabe constructed entirely of matchsticks. Just make sure you discuss the time and cost commitments with your partner.

Some ideas:

  • one fabulous large item
  • a favourite theme, colour, or fandom
  • fill a shoebox
  • just three things

You are allowed to have two partners in this swap if you want to.

Communication is key in this swap. We have a long crafting time, and we’re swapping with people we like and admire. Please make sure you can follow through on your commitments, and keep in touch with your partner and the organizer if there are any problems. There will be weekly check in questions in the discussion.

It can be scary to ask someone to swap, but I hope you will give it a go! Think about how you’d feel if someone asked you – you’d be thrilled, right? Of course, sometimes time demands or postage costs mean that someone can’t commit to a swap right now, so please don’t take it to heart if you get a no. Ask someone else - there’s a bunch of wonderful lettuce heads who’d love to dance with you!

IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A PARTNER

If you’d like to join in, but you haven’t asked anyone yet, you can be on the list of swappers looking for a partner. PM @jemimah and I’ll add you to the list. You can just put your name down – I’m sure someone will be thrilled to swap with you! If you’d like to, you can be a bit more specific about crafts you’d like to swap (keep it brief). e.g. – “@jemimah would love to swap with someone who could crochet silk mittens for her velociraptor. She could weave a model Millenium Falcon for you from bamboo and moonbeams.”

Don’t send your questionnaire to me until you have decided on your partner. Once I have received forms from both partners, I’ll update the participant list.

this is tempting. Will need to think on it.

Just out of curiosity, are we allowed to invite more than one partner for this round?

2 Likes

I’m not sufficiently motivated to invite anybody (what the heck do I want anyway?? I mean, I have a pinterest of that, but my brain is presently made of fluff.) but happy to play if someone wants machine embroidery or something else I do.

Good question! I will check and let you know.

I’m excited to be hosting IYP! The IYP galleries in the old place were amazing - I’m looking forward to see what people will create :smiley_cat:

I should just note that I am in New Zealand. I’ll try to respond to queries promptly, but the time difference might mean I am checking in at odd hours.

Yes! If I remember correctly, it was a limit of two partners in previous IYPs, so I’m happy to stick with that this time. I’ll update the swap info now.

2 Likes

Awesome! I wasn’t committed to having more than one, but there is someone else I think would be fun to swap with, so if she says yes, that’ll be cool! Thanks.

Edit: We decided the timing was better just to send happy mail, but that’s cool, too!

Yay! @Whistlefish and I are joining in this round. I love the IYP! Such a happy swap.

Yay, we have some swappers already! One of the great things about IYP is that it’s one of those swaps where you can start crafting right away :smiley_cat:

Thinking. I have someone in mind but the timing is a bit dicey for me since we may be moving prior to send outs.
