    Okay, I've seen people mentioning this on some of their replies. I got "so and so" thanks to my Quilting Angel.

    Is this like a swap? Is there a place I can sign up? I think this sounds like a nice fun idea. Is it like a secret santa thing but all year round?

    Details, details please! :)

    I was wondering that myself because how do you get someone's address if you don't sign up?

    There was a year long swap, it ended in December. There is not a new one now.

    Check out the swap section, a new one may start at any time.

    Also, some are just random gifts. If you ask around in PM's, you may be able to get a hold of a person's address to send them a squishy :D:D:D

    omg, it is a swap a secret pal swap, I think its every month. if you go down to the bottom of the page you will see a link to swaps.

    it is very orginized, their will be a message sent out for May. I signed up for the April swap it closed on april 2 and by the 3rd or 4th I received my secret pals information address, likes, dislikes. There is a 10.00 limit it can be stuff from your stash or store bought. We have to mail out our stuff by april 19th

    A secret quilting Angel is kept a secret.
    Quilting Angel knows you and you know her/him.
    Secret pal swap is kept a secret until the package is delivered with a note of who it is from. There is a secret pal swap on the board that runs from month to month and you have a different pal each month that you sign up.
    I don't know how you would become a secret Angel.

    I have a wonderful Quilting Angel who contacted me first so as not to insult me by just sending something. I would never be insulted by a surprise package. Anyway we have become great friends and everyonce in a while she sends me quilting things in the mail. I can't tell you how excited I get.
    I have also sent items to others who needed help.

    If you really pay attention to some posts you will be able to find someone to bless.

    Yeah it was a one year long swap that I hosted. I am still twitching over that one. The month to month secret pal swap is a much better idea.
