Yes! It's happening. I'm working on the matches now but won't finalize it till Feb.1st. I made an Excel spreadsheet:) I'm such a nerd.Some may be direct swaps(I make for you, you make for me), and some may be round robin to accommodate uneven numbers and different preferences. I'm also going to try to keep it UK to UK, US to US if possible to cut down on shipping costs and customs hassle.

As far as dread numbers, thickness, etc. I'm thinking this will be negotiated with your swappee. Within reason:) Don't ask for 150 dreads unless you are going to make the same:)

I realize that swapping dread wigs for dreads might be an issue as the quality of the base wig can vary GREATLY and be very costly. I personally would not want to put all the time and effort into making high quality dreads on a Halloween quality wig:) So if you want a wig you need to work out with your maker how to get the base wig. Maybe you already have one you could send to your swappee?, or arrange to have them make an extra set/or other items to make up for the wig cost.
Please contact me if you are unable to come to agreement with your partner and I will try my darnedest to find a solution.
Most of all I want this to be a fun and not too stressful by giving 2 months to complete your set.

I'm excited too! I'm making a wig for my swap mate and I've been plotting and planning and making sketches. Plan to make the final design decision by mid next week and order my KK

Has everyone contacted their swappee? PM me if you have questions or problems or post to this thread.
