    October Secret Pal Swap Signup Closes September 30th 4pm CST

    September Secret Pal Swap
    Description:
    This is a monthly secret pal swap. There is a sign up every month, and you can choose whether or not to participate each month. You will get a different partner every month, and the person you send to will be different than the person you receive from.




    1) YOU NEED TO SEND THE HOSTESS A PRIVATE MESSAGE WHEN YOU MAIL YOUR PACKAGE TO YOUR SECRETPAL.

    2)ONCE YOU GET YOUR PACKAGE FROM YOUR SECRET PAL, YOU WILL NEED TO SEND A PRIVATE MESSAGE TO THE PERSON WHO SENT THE PACKAGE TO YOU TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU DID RECEIVE IT AND TO THANK THE SENDER.

    3) AFTER YOU HAVE THANKED YOUR SECRET PAL, YOU WILL NEED TO SEND ME A PRIVATE MESSAGE TELLING ME THAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED YOUR PACKAGE SO THAT I CAN KEEP ACCURATE RECORDS.

    FAILURE TO SEND THESE PRIVATE MESSAGES IS REASON ENOUGHTO BE BANNED FROM THE NEXT MONTHS SWAP.


    PACKAGES NEED TO BE SENT OUT BY October 15th this is a FIRM deadline (NOT A SUGGESTION). IF YOU KNOW THAT YOU CANNOT MAIL BY THAT DATE, PLEASE DO NOT SIGN UP. You can send your package as early as you'd like!


    If you are sending an international package it will need to be mailed by the 10th of October. Due to mail processing, our mail dates for international mailing has to be as early as possible! No later than the 10th of October. It can take many weeks to reach your SP so any delays in mailing can delay the start of the next month’s sign-up sheet being posted.


    Once you have decided to join the swap, please send me a PM with the completed information sheet.



    Our International board members are welcome to join the swap.

    You must have a phone # or email to sign up

    There is a 10 dollar budget for this swap. Items from your stash or homemade items are not included in the $10 limit. Postage isn't included in the ten dollars. The most important thing to remember with the budget is to have fun, but please do NOT SPEND MORE THAN $10.



    Sign ups will close the 30th of September, and names will be paired on the 1st of October and sent out no later than the 2nd of October. (I will try to have all names out on the 1st.)


    2. If your pal does not receive her/his package within a reasonable time (7 days max from mailing deadline for within the same country. Then I will need tracking information, 15 days for between countries. There are exceptions, but I MUST be notified of any delays in sending on your end). Failure to comply may result in the following:


    This is why it is imperative that you keep the hostess informed on ANY mailing issues. Along with negative feedback, you will not be allowed to participate in future secret pal swaps. It is also possible that other coordinators will not allow you to participate in their swaps.

    It's all about fun, so please have fun with it.

    If you have questions, please PM me and I will try to answer as quickly as possible.

    Ready for October's swap.
    Off topic: For a few months I was asking for black on white and white on black fabrics from my SP which several did send for a quilt I made for my SIL for Christmas. How about that one done!! It will go to the LAQ in Dec.
