    made an address book for your correspondents on this site? I have a folder with notes. Wondering the best way to record username, name, address & details of swap. Many of you have been here a while!

    This is funny!! I was just going through pieces of paper with addresses and such on them and was wondering what to do with them.

    Just got rid of a lot of my slips of paper by entering the info into a data base. Microsoft Office Suite has a great one.

    Both are good ideas! Having them on the computer is grand and having a small address book is good as well for safe keeping :)

    Good question! I'm fairly new here so I don't have many addresses yet... but I think I'll start a new notebook today to keep track of this stuff. Plus maybe some info on the swaps so I can keep 'em straight too. It's probably easier to use a computer program to sort these things but I prefer writing it on actual paper.

    Sounds like a good idea! For me, just keeping a record of names vs screen names would be helpful!

    If one prefers the paper and pencil route, a rolodex type system is handy. Cards can be updated and alphabetized easily.

    This actually would probably be the easiet. Then I could put down what someone is looking for. Say like salvedge edges. Then I would know who it was that requested it. Pretty smart idea!! :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Admin has a system available for swaps. See his posts in this thread:http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

    Does anyone use this?

    i have a small journal type note book which i keep all information for any swaps, block of the month's, people i send scraps to, challenges, contests, ect. i manage to keep it fairly organized, and have any addresses, or project details readily available all in one place. i also have a recipe card file box with cards in it to use for swaps and i keep addresses in it for any continuing activities.

    So far I have been using a little notebook for quilting. 3x5 cards sound good.

    I keep a spreadsheet for my personal mailing addresses.

    Haven't been here long enough to get addresses from anyone, but I'd even use a column in my spreadsheet for notations.. the who's who so I wouldn't accidentally send one thing to someone else and vice versa.

    I have 3 x 5 index cards and file them by user name in alpha order and on the card, I write down

    user name (from where)

    real name and address

    birthday

    comments: (like how long quilting, favorite colors etc.) and if I do a swap will have that information on it

    also has a calendar to put down when swaps are due, birthday list etc. (and can set up a reminder for yourself)



    also you could create a private yahoo group to store the information online with databases for swaps, address book and you can store your links there from surfing etc.

    I have one! for my eyes only (private)
