Wow. That seems expensive. I haven't spent over $10.00 to mail any of my swaps on this board. That even included delivery confirmation and, in a few cases, insurance. I think the lady at the post office was inaccurate. I use the automatic machines usually and have never had a problem.

I've only done the secret pal swap and love it. It's kind of a bummer when you don't get a package from your secret pal. (happened to me last month). I think its specical to get a "squishy" in the mail. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

This is the most wonderful place and everyone is so nice and very helpful.

Sept was my first pal swap. I enjoyed shopping for her . And she was pleased with the fabric and stuff. I am still awaiting mine. Now that I know what it is all about, I will always look for adorable stuff at the LQS and always be ready. I've signed up for Oct already. So jump right in....it is fun!
