    Description:
    Description: PLEASE READ ALL THE WAY THROUGH
    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 every month, and the person you send to will be different than the person you receive from.

    ************Something new this month has been added, due to misunderstandings and hurt feelings, 1)Once you get your package in the mail you will need to send a pm (private message) to the person who sent the package to you to acknowlege that you received it and to thank the sender.
    2) After you received your package you need to pm me so I can keep accurate records. If you are new and do not know how to do this please contact me. *************


    PACKAGES NEED TO BE SENT OUT BY AUGUST 17th. IF YOU CAN NOT MAIL BY THAT DATE PLEASE DO NOT SIGN UP. Send it as early as you'd like!









    You do need to send me a PM every month, as I cannot keep track very well of people signing up for more then 1 month. Please don't post a message on the thread about signing up, as I may not see it.

    I would prefer that you resend your info, to make minor changes about holidays, personal preferences, etc.


    If you would like to do it, please send me a pm with this information. If you are international, feel free to join!

    if you are interested in joining, please send me a PRIVATE MESSAGE with the following information. If I do not have a valid email or phone number, you can't participate.

    Screen Name:
    Real Name:
    Address:
    Address:
    City, State, Zip:
    Favorite Colors:
    Favorite Candy:
    Your favorite notion/fabric line, etc:
    Your least favorite color(s)
    Least favorite candy
    Least favorite notion/fabric line
    Brand of sewing machine:
    Do you have an embroidery machine:
    Is there anything you like to collect?
    Besides quilting, what do you like to do?
    Allergies:
    Can you mail international?
    Favorite thing:
    What is your fav holiday?:
    Anything you would not like to receive:
    What are you currently working on:
    Additional info (the more info you provide, the better):

    email address:
    phone number:


    This form will be given to your secret pal. The more you put on there, the better she/he will be able to get things you'd like. Additional information may be helpful to them as well.

    There is a 10 dollar budget for this swap. Items from your stash or homemade items are not included in the $10 limit. Postage isn't included in the ten dollars. The most important thing to remember with the budget is to have fun, but please do NOT SPEND MORE THAN $10.

    If you want ideas on what to send, look at the previous swaps. Things that are always fun to get is fabric, notions, notepads, pens, postcards, handmade items, little things like that.

    Sign ups will close the 31st of July and names will be paired on the 1st of August and sent out.

    I really want to stress that if you sign up, please, PLEASE follow thru. It's a horrible feeling to not receive a package.

    I will be keeping a list of people that don't follow thru.It is not right and it's been happening a lot here lately and we will not be allowed to do secret swaps anymore.

    Please make sure that you put your real name and screen name inside the package so the person receiving the package knows who to thank.

    1. you must ship your package using a method that provides tracking and delivery confirmation. You can purchase it at the post office or if you print postage, it is free for priority mail and 70 cents for all others.


    2. if your pal does not receive her/his package within a reasonable time (14 days max for within the same country, 30 days for between countries) a public note that you failed to send must be added to the Group Activity matrix. if your pal is still empty handed after 14 more days Swap Coordinators are required to post negative feedback against your account. You will not be allowed to participate in any more Secret Pal swaps. Also, other coordinators will not allow you to participate in their swaps.

    It's all about fun, so please have fun with it.

    If you have questions, please pm me and I will try to answer as quickly as possible.

    This swap has been approved by PatriceJ.

    Lori, you're the best! Thank you for continuing this. I really think I almost have more fun putting my packages together than opening the ones I get ... but that is so much fun, too!

    Lori, I did not even check to see if you had started the thread. I just found my July email to join, edited it a bit and sent it! Of course, you can see I am not at all eager to join in for August. :lol: :lol: :lol:
