You Can't Always Get What You Want
I understand everyone has different tastes, and I have never done a request swap before so I didn't realize how strict someone could be. I have gotten packages with items that weren't necessarily something I would pick for myself, but I've always rated my parters well when I've received a package that has fulfilled the swap. I think of each swap as a gift that should be received graciously, not met with complaints or rude questions like "Just curious, did you read my profile?" or lists of who appropriate "modern" designers might be. Based on the list I received, ANY person who designed a new fabric today would be a modern designer, as long as it wasn't a reissue or vintage print. So something with Disney characters, or toile in lime green would be modern - which I don't agree with.
