    MAILING ALERT!!!

    For those of you mailing internationally, you need to be aware of a couple of things...

    Customs forms must be filled out properly for the country you are mailing to.. we do not want to pay customs charges on any of these and are justified not to as we are not importing or exporting goods.. only trading services...

    I usually mark mine "other"...not gift or merchandise, etc..
    I usually mark the contents as "used craft fabric"
    Mark the package to be returned to the sender in the case that it cannot be delivered.. we dont want tops lost in international mailing bin somewhere..

    Also the cost of the item must be considered.. If it is over $50 value, customs charges will be assessed at the receiving end.. I would suggest you estimate a value less than $50. How can we justify this? Well again, we are not importing or exporting goods...just exchanging value for value..

    Insurance is another matter.. I think that the US Post Office defaults to $100 insurance without extra fees.. I am going to suggest that we all abide by that and NOT add extra insurance.. gets us back into the customs issue.. how can we value it less than $50 and insure it for more than $100... I would like to have your input on this, but to minumize the impact of chgs, I would like us all to use $50 as the basis for the value of all tops, and take the chance of losing $50 in coverage in the case of one of them getting damaged or lost...

    About tracking internationally...If you are mailing from the US and fill out your customs form, it gets scanned.. and a number is printed on your receipt.. You can use this number to ask for a trace if the package gets lost. I dont know what happens when mailing from the other countries. Will you girls please check with your post office?

    Any other issues, please post them for the benefit of all...

    And Im sorry that I didnt think to post this sooner.. before we had a problem..

    The international girls might be able to help us out here as some of us are not used to this process. Try not to be judgemental when these things happen..but informative and helpful in finding a solution.

    I am, even though I'm not in your group.

    I want to go to Jackson! What is the name of the quilt shop and WHERE is it? Do you go on Saturdays?

    MJ..here is their web site..it has a map...NOTE: They haven't moved yet so go to the OLD location.

    I usually don't go on Sat. because it is busier then. I am trying to get ready to go tomorrow or the next day at the latest. I need stuff to work on Elle's center.

    If you go..have fun! Don't get too close to those Bernina machines or one will go home with you :wink:

    I love looking at all the work, but the quilt shop you just posted has the most reasonable classes ever 12 to 20 dollars...Even I could afford that...anyone close is indeed lucky :D

    Yes, Ruth. They are really good about arranging for any type of lesson you want or need..even private lessons. And of course, they are pretty reasonable with the price. Of course, they are also pretty good about just giving you some help and advice if you take a problem to them. Since I didn't even know how to thread a machine when I started this, they have been a HUGE help to me :lol:

    Of course, they do know that every time I step inside I drop a load of $ on fabric and other stuff. :roll: :wink: :lol:

    OK...after my trip to my LQS yesterday I was sooo excited that I couldn't wait any longer. I got busy on SazuBmidlands' s center today...I sure hope you like it Sazu!! If not...my DH really, really, really wants it. He said he'd love to see me finish up this one and just keep it. :roll:

    I guess I'll be making one now very similar to this one. I told him it will really be fun to watch to see how it progresses.
