    July Secret Pal Swap - Signups end June 30 at noon

    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. 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 July 17th, this is a Firm deadline. All International mailings must be mailed by June 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 June 30 to join the swap.

    Have fun and be creative!

    Sorry I have been missing. I was in a bicycle accident Friday. I fractured my shoulder blade and will have my left arm strapped to my side for the next 6 weeks. Road rash on my arm and knee. Overall I am blessed. I will have everything out on time.

    Can you take a few days off work, Kathy? You need to take it easy for a while. Usually it hurts more a couple days after an accident. Hope no one else was hurt. Hugs on your good side. BrendaK

    No I haven't heard anything. It's been about a week since the last time I've heard anything from her. I hope she's okay.

    Okay... I am working on getting secret pals out now. Sorry I have not been on. I was in a bicycle accidnet and have a broken shoulder balde, 2 ribs and road rash that has become infected. I am just in bad shape but time will make it better. Everyone should have their pals within an hour or two. I am so sorry for the delay. Doing things one handed is tough.

    No worries. Take your time. I think all of us were wondering how you are doing. Sorry to hear the road rash got infected. Praying you will heal soon. We are all busy with prepping for the 4 th of July. Some of my other swaps have not posted either. It is a busy time and I hope people will be understanding of each other if things run a little later. Thank you for giving us an update. All your quilting buddies here are wishing you well. ))))))Hugs(((((((

    Okay they are all out. Let me know if there is an issue. So much easier with two hands and two monitors.

    I will try and check in each day. Have fun and remember to send me a PM when you ship and when you receive. Glad to have some new faces this month.

    To my secret pal I have a couple of items that will be sent to you. They will not have my name on them. I will get the rest of your package in the mail on Monday or Tuesday of next week.

    My secret pal is new to me! She doesn’t live too many states away from me and my small town has almost 3 times the population of her town. Her town is almost twice the elevation of mine, but 1/5 the area.

    Super excited!!!! It made my day. I have been busy doing deep cleaning in my house today and yesterday was a bit of a challenge so when I got two lovely items in the mail it brightened my weekend. My DH had opened the package of tea. When he showed it to me, I realized it was a gift and can’t wait to make a cup of pear kiwi green tea. Thank you. The ruler I just opened and it will be so handy in cutting all these triangles I have been trimming with my regular ruler on the 60 degree line. Thank you! Thank you! I am guessing it is QueenBarbieJ based on post #23.
