    If one prefers the paper and pencil route, a rolodex type system is handy. Cards can be updated and alphabetized easily.

    yep, I would do spreadsheet.
    This actually would probably be the easiet. Then I could put down what someone is looking for. Say like salvedge edges. Then I would know who it was that requested it. Pretty smart idea!! :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Admin has a system available for swaps. See his posts in this thread:http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

    Does anyone use this?

    i have a small journal type note book which i keep all information for any swaps, block of the month's, people i send scraps to, challenges, contests, ect. i manage to keep it fairly organized, and have any addresses, or project details readily available all in one place. i also have a recipe card file box with cards in it to use for swaps and i keep addresses in it for any continuing activities.

    So far I have been using a little notebook for quilting. 3x5 cards sound good.

    I keep a spreadsheet for my personal mailing addresses.

    Haven't been here long enough to get addresses from anyone, but I'd even use a column in my spreadsheet for notations.. the who's who so I wouldn't accidentally send one thing to someone else and vice versa.

    I have 3 x 5 index cards and file them by user name in alpha order and on the card, I write down

    user name (from where)

    real name and address

    birthday

    comments: (like how long quilting, favorite colors etc.) and if I do a swap will have that information on it

    also has a calendar to put down when swaps are due, birthday list etc. (and can set up a reminder for yourself)



    also you could create a private yahoo group to store the information online with databases for swaps, address book and you can store your links there from surfing etc.

    I have one! for my eyes only (private)
