    April Secret Pal Swap-Signups end March 31 at 11:50PM. Come join the fun!

    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 each month, and the person you send to will may be different than the person you receive from. Failure to send your package after signing up will be cause to be banned from all future swaps. Please do not sign up if you cannot fulfill your obligation. Have fun and be creative!

    After receiving your Secret Pal’s details, go to work and put together a package with something you think your pal would like. There is a $15.00 limit on this swap that does not include what you have in your stash. (This does not include shipping) Most swappers do not mind like-new stash items. You will need to send me (hav4boys) a PM when mailing and receiving. This way I can keep my records straight. Also send a PM to your SP thanking them and leave feedback.

    Please take pictures and post in group as everyone likes to see what you get.

    Packages need to be mailed out by April 19th, this is a Firm deadline. All International mailings must be mailed by April 10th FIRM. If you know that you cannot mail by that date, Please Do Not Sign Up.

    For international mailing it is very important that you mark your parcel as a 'Gift' on the Customs Declaration (there's a box you can check). Also, the value should be $10 only (even if you send diamond necklace). The person receiving the package is liable for Import Duty, Tax and a Handling fee. This can cost the person receiving as much as $40.

    Padded envelopes are much cheaper to send compared to small boxes. These can be ordered free of charge from the USPS website.

    You must have a phone # or email to sign up

    Please fill out the questionnaire below and Private Message me your info by midnight March 31 to join the swap.

    Email address:
    Phone number:

    Sign Ups will close March 31 at 11:59 PM PST and names will be sent out no later than March 2nd.

    If your pal does not receive her/his package within a reasonable time I will need tracking information. If there is an exception on the mailing, you will need to inform me ASAP. No one enjoys not getting a package after they have sent one.

    Have fun and be creative!

    Originally posted this on the March Swap page...

    I think everyone thought March was finished and that everyone had already received their packages. Just wanted to give everyone a chance to see what I received from CarolinePaj!

    Received my swap package!

    Came home today to find a wonderful package from CarolinePaj! Loads of lovely fabrics, including reds and blues and food themed fabrics. A sachet with lavender grown by her husband and a lovely needle book she made herself. Three patterns, a book, clips, a pin cushion kit, rose hand cream, and yummy-looking chocolate bar!

    Caroline outdid herself and I thank her so much!

    Her least favorite color style is my favorite. LOL How did I end up with you? Do not worry. I already ordered something and followed your sheet. I hope you like it and I hope it will not take forever to get here.
