    There is a movie called the Rubber Room..it's about where teachers in NY go when they get in trouble..They sit there all day, getting full pay sometimes for years while decisions are made about their jobs...Wonder if thye would let them bring a sewing machine in there??? Did you at least get to bounce off a wall?? I remember MANY years ago, visiting kids in a state psychiatric hospital to do a Christmas party with my Girl Scout group..the highlight of the day was when a patient taught us how to get out of a straight jacket...thought I was going to need that skill one day with 9 kids to raise!!

    I am new to this. How do I PM you to send you my information for the Secret Santa swap?

    Thanks,
    Pam

    The deadline to sign up is September 29. You will receive the information for your person by PM by October 1.

    First...a bit of unpleasantness....

    THE RULES....

    1. Mail deadline is November 14th. That is a HARD deadline. No mailing AFTER this time. Since you have almost 2 months, there should be NO excuse for mailing late, unless you are incapacitated or 6 feet under.

    2. ALL packages MUST have a DELIVERY CONFIRMATION when sent. Last year there were too many packages that were sent late and a few that were not received. With a Delivery Confirmation, the package can be somewhat tracked when received. If the receiver HAS NOT received their package from you and you said you sent it, you will be required to PROVE your sending with a copy of the mail receipt showing such. The mail receipt will show that you paid for the Delivery Confirmation, along with the zip code that the package was shipped to. So, DO NOT toss the receipt or the Deliveryy Confirmation slip away UNTIL YOU HEAR THAT YOUR PERSON HAS RECEIVED THEIR PACKAGE!

    3. IF you cannot adhere to the rules and/or you recieve a package, but do not send one, YOU WILL be banned from ANY further swap(s) I run AND I will also let other swappers know of your action in this swap. I will also post negative feedback for you and will encourage the person with whom you were to send to, to do the same.
    Last year we had too many "angels" step forward and send to people who did not receive from their Secret Santa due to people NOT sending.


    4. By signing up, means that you have read the rules and that you WILL adhere to them.

    5. DO NOT OPEN the package if you are unsure if it's from your Secret Santa. If you aren't sure, just send me a PM and ask me. I can tell you if it's your SS by the address.
    For those that will use another address (mom's, sister's, aunt's, etc), if you put maybe some stickers or even write Secret Santa on the package, that would help also.

    6. If you are sending overseas, you will be required to attach a Customs Form to the package. It sucks to have to do this, but it's required. DO NOT make the total of the amount on the Customs Form MORE than $20. Even if the package is worth $1000, DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT make the amount for more than $20. If you do, the receiver will have to pay Customs/VAT taxes on the package and we don't want that to happen.
    When you fill out the form, you can put ..
    Candy---$1.00
    Fabric---$5.00
    Cup---$10.00
    Total--$20.00
    This is just an example.

    I'm sorry if this sounds harsh, but there have been too many hurt feelings lately in swaps and people NEED to be held accountable for their actions.

    Remember, put a card in the package so the receiver knows who the sender is. If you accidentally forget to put the card in once your package is sent, just send the card separately with the same return addy you put on the package.

    Now, that the "ugly" is over....

    As in the past years, you will send 4 Fat Quarters and a gift(s) NOT to exceed $20. I know some in the past have sent MUCH more than the $20 limit and that cannot be helped. Some people are just a bit more generous than others. That is nothing to get mad about and nothing I can control. Some people are more generous than others. If you send home made baked good, those DO NOT count towards the $20 limit.

    If you wish to participate, send me a PM with the following

    Board Name:
    Name:
    Address:



    Likes/Wants:



    Dislikes/Allergies:




    Will you send international?
    Canada
    Overseas (Europe, South America, Australia, Japan)


    Do you have pets?


    Do you mind sending/receiving from a smoker?


    When addressing your package, put as an example

    Santa, Santa's Elf, Jolly Man (just an example of what you can use)
    123 Main Street
    Any Town, AR 12345
    (the address will be YOUR address)

    Don't forget....if you have something that can be repurposed, that would be great too!

    This exchange is open to ANYONE. Those that are international, will get their information earlier to allow for extra time for packages to arrive to their destination.



    There will be a chat session, so everyone can come and we can open our gifts together. That date will be determined at a later time.

    Remember, this is SECRET. You won't know who is sending to you and the person you are sending to, won't know it's you until reveal day in chat.

    If you have ANY questions, please don't hesitate to PM me and ask.

    Let's have a great time with this.

    I do need to add that those who are not in the US or that have names for outside the US, will have to mail early due to the time that it takes to get from one country to another, especially from the US to Canada. Seems it can take up to 4 weeks to get a package to Canada. Those sending to Canada OR overseas DO NOT need a Delivery Confirmation. Just holding the receipt for proof of mailing will suffice.

    ***If you have ANY questions, please DO NOT hesitate to ask me. Just send me a PM and I will get back to you as soon as possible. You can also ask Sharon b, she's my little helper.
