    As I have been adjusting to the position of hosting the Secret Pal Swap I have been doing some homework by looking at other swaps. In order to eliminate any potential problems other swaps have added some other questions. These include;
    Do you have any allergies (smoke, cats,dogs etc)
    Do you have any allergens ( you smoke, have cats, dogs etc)
    It has been suggested that we add Would you like to receive old sewing magazines. What is your favorite beverage. I am open to any and all suggestions. It is nearing the sign up for the Sept swap and I feel we need to revamp the questions to the benefit of all involved. Please post any ideas you may have and I will be reading this daily.

    I agree that those could be included, Lori :)

    Maybe patterns? If they like doing redwork, or blue work or just embroidery. I have a few of Aunt Martha's iron on patterns. I don't want to send them along if they won't be used. But I don't do embroidery that much to keep them.

    Lori, when I had my SP I was wondering what type of quilting she did: long-arm, machine, hand, or free motion. This helps in buying the right thread to use and also templates for hand quilting. Also if the person has pet(s) and what are they: dog, cat, etc., and list their favorite treats. I'll try and think of others....oh......last question can be, "The ONE thing I want the most is___________."

    I would love to receive old "Applique" magazines. That is a great question to add, also old and unwanted "Applique" books.
    Knowing what the SP likes to quilt best would be a great help.
    You are doing such an awesome job with managing this SP swap. It is such a joy to participate.

    Not sure why you need to know about a beverage. Maybe ask about sharing a recipe. I think we should stick a little closer to the quilting.

    I also believe that the more questions we have and also the more detail we give the easier it is to shop for. I know one of my Secret Pal's said they made Christmas ornaments as another hobby ... well I wasn't sure if they made them out of beads, sequins, ... also when they say they also like to read ... what category do you like to read? Fiction, Non-fiction, Mystery, True crime.

    I guess for the one answering the questions should give more information ... elaborate a little more.

    But there is nothing wrong with adding more questions either.

    I also agree with the question on what type of quilting do you do ... and also the kind of beverages ...

    I like the idea of asking what type of dog or cat or pet they have-I have found such cute stuff for my sister who has Daschounds- also, a wish list for quilting stuff-type of magazines, notions, fabrics, patterns, thread, etc.
