Default August Secret Pal Sign-Ups: Closes July 31 at midnight. Come enjoy the fun!

Please note: there is a delay in items being shipped. Please be understanding.

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 Palís 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. Please send items you would like to receive. Do not send smelly, holey, or stained fabric. 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. This is an important part of participating. It lets your secret pal know you got their package.

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

Packages need to be mailed out by August 22th, this is a Firm deadline. All International mailings must be mailed by August 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 July 31 to join the swap.

Sign Ups will close July 31 at midnight PST and names will be sent out no later than August 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!

Sent.

I'm so sorry I haven't at least checked in with you all, hope everyone is fine. I am, now, but I've been no fit company the last few months. I had a cardiac cath in March, and I had a breast cancer scare in May and was nervous, snappy and generally no fun to be around while waiting on results - it took 3 tries (biopsy attempt, MRI guided biopsy, surgical biopsy) and 6 weeks of waiting. Thankfully it ended up being a papilloma. Between this, the pandemic and all that entails, 38 has been an interesting year so far. Hoping the rest of it is calmer.

Here is the quilt made for my niece with all the black and white BrendaK sent me in July's Secret Pal swap. I had enough for the mystery swap quilt and this beauty.
