Default Birthday Swap 2020/2021

Hello everyone...........

2.5 Candy Birthday swap is now open
for sign ups and will remain open until we get 35 people to join or February 19th.

Hello and welcome to the 2.5" Candy Birthday Swap. Candy squares are 2.5" 100% cotton squares that you would be happy to put in your own quilt. Please do not resend any previously recieved squares from any other swap.

This is how this swap will work:



1. Very Important this is a year long commitment.

2. PM me your name, address, Email, phone number and your birthday (month and day)
*** new this year please also send the same info to: Janice McC (co-host)


Newbies (new to this swap) you must get a recommendation from a past hostess or from Anyone that was in a previous birthday swap. Absolutely No Flakers here!!! You must have swapped with or know the person giving the recommendation.

3. While you are waiting for the swap to start get your packages of 50 unique (All different) 2.5" candy squares ready to be mailed. I will show you how the best way is to package them.

4. Starting for March (on feb 20) I will send everyone a list of who is celebrating a birthday that month so you can send out their "candy present". I will send out the list on the 20th of each month. You should have your envelopes ready when I send these addresses out.

5. Birthday person please keep track of who you received your candy from, please let me know if you have not received a package from someone. Please post the name on the board of Everyone that has sent you a package on our thread as they come in.


6. I will have contests again this year but they will be randomly throughout the year. Feel free to play as often as you want the only rule is: You must be a swapper in good standing to win. Which means Every package that has been sent by you has been received on time. I keep track when every package is received....this is why it is very important for the Birthday receiver to post received packages in a timely manner.

7. Birthday Recipient, please give positive feedback to everyone who you receive from on time. Your package must be on time to get positive feedback. Anyone over 10 days late will get Negative feedback. Right now there is no feedback on the board so for now this is changed.

8. Sit back and wait for your birthday then go to your mailbox and enjoy little packages all month long! <3

9. Please post on the thread when you have mailed your birthday package and of course wish them a Happy Birthday.

10. More than 3 "Late" packages will disqualify any one to participate in future swaps.



I am going to limit this to the first 35 people and only addresses in the USA (for postage sake Sorry).

The general swap rules apply: https://www.quiltingboard.com/member-swaps-round-row-robins-f11/rules-swaps-similar-activities-updated-8-december-2010-a-t20154.html


Any questions please feel free to post them in this thread...because someone else probably has the same ones!

This is our eighth year for this swap .....the first, second and third year went well and many friends were made. Fourth year ...everyone’s packages were on time… Fifth and sixth year almost all were on time!... seventh a few late ones but we came in strong at the end. I expect to have everyone one on time this year!!!!

Looking forward to another year of fun, friends and of course cute little candy squares!!!



Barb

Whooop there she is! I'm so stinking excited! I was all down and depressed. Then I came here and here you are. I've been stalking you all since the day I joined WWQP. And your finally open. I can't wait. Since I'm a newbie I completed a mug rug swap and have been waiting for the wall hanging swap to need my hanging. I made it a month or so ago but it's still sitting here. Since I can't do those I've asked the first friend I made here for my referral. Now I'm going to print off the rules and see what lovelies I have for ya'll. I'm so stinking excited, I wish I could run off the energy. Alas,age and infirmity stop me. Gotta get this out some way. Oh I know... quilting! Hahhahaha! Oh me. So happy to finally be part of the group. Thanks for hosting this Barbara.

LAF, you could try asking the host of a previous swap to give you a recommendation. A quick pm to that person may help.

Thanks for the endorsement, Pamela! I will wait to hear if that is sufficient. :-)

Welcome to the returnees and the new swappers! I'm hoping we get a full house.

Last year was my first year, and I was another that was waiting impatiently for the sign-up to open! I was worried I'd miss it and it would fill up before I got a chance.

I would love to join in. I'm sure I have enough of 50 different fabrics! Janice, I know you are one of the hostesses, but may you recommend me?
