    September Secret Pal Swap Closes August 31st 4pm

    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.




    Please do not send me a sign up PM until the new sign-up sheet is available

    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 August 13th this is a FIRM deadline (NOT A SUGGESTION).If for some reason you cannot mail by the 13th and are considering not signing up, then send me a private message and we can see if it can be worked out. 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 September. If that is not possible then please say no to International mailing on your sign-up sheet. Due to mail processing, our mail dates for international mailing has to be as early as possible! No later than the 10th of September. 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.

    International mailings—it is imperative that you keep your copy of the Customs Declaration Notice that you fill out until your SP has notified you that they received their package. If a problem encountered with the package, you may need to PM me the information from that sheet in order to work effectively with the Postal Service.


    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
    Your secret pal is excited to receive your name and really wants to send you a great package. Please help by answering the questions as completely as possible.

    Besides quilting, what do you like to do?

    Can you mail international?
    email address:
    phone number:


    This form will be given to your secret pal (minus the email address and phone number) . The more you put on there, the better she/he will be able to get things you'd like. Additional information may be helpful to them as well.

    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.



    Examples of some fun things to receive are: fabric, notions, notepads, pens, postcards, handmade items, little things like that.

    Sign ups will close the 31st of August, and names will be paired on the 1st of September and sent out no later than the 2nd of September. (I will try to have all names out on the 1st.)

    Please make sure that you put your real name and screen name inside the package so the person receiving the package knows who to thank.

    1. You must ship your package using a method that provides tracking and delivery confirmation unless you are mailing international.

    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:

    A public note that you failed to send would be added to the Group Activity matrix.

    If your pal is still empty handed at the end of the month, it is possible that negative feedback will be posted to your account.

    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.
    Coordinated by: Lori Peercy

    Lori.. I'm in. I had to send my info to you by email as for some reason I cant send it from here. Please let me know if you get my info tyty
    There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING...
