Please be aware that there are recurring swaps every month and there are people who host those swaps month after month. If you would like to run a recurring swap please contact the member who normally runs it for permission.
|Why is the post requirement so high?|

|How many swaps can a hostess run at one time?|
|We ask that a swap hostess only run two swaps (or less) at any given time. Similar swaps can be clumped together. There is no need for a mama craft swap, kids craft swap, husband craft swap, ETC. They can be lumped together into one craft swap.|
|What are the requirements to participate in a swap?|
|To participate you must meet the following requirements:
*If you simply do not have feedback anywhere but here (because you are so loyal to DS and love us so much), with a post count of 1000 and good DS feedback, at the discretion of the hostess, you may participate.
|How should packages be shipped?|
|All swap packages must have Delivery Confirmation and be mailed within with the proper time frames. The swap host will let you know when items need to be mailed.
If you do not live in the U.S., please work out the delivery confirmation and other shipping issues with the swap host ahead of time.
|I have negative feedback, will that effect me getting into swaps?|
|Anyone with excessive negative feedback ratings will not be allowed in the DS swap group. Anyone with 2 or more negative feedback ratings or mutually withdrawn feedbacks ratings will not be allowed in the swap group. Admins can make exceptions on extreme cases, but this is completely under the admin team's discretion.|
