March 2023 Secret Pal Swap - Signups close midnight March 1

Please send sign ups this month to Annaquilts. Kathy asked me to help out for the March 2023 Secret Pal Swap. You swappers have all been so amazing and helpful in the past that I feel confident to do it again.

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, thin, or stained fabric or obviously used items that should be put in the trash. You will need to send me (Annaquilts) 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 March 20, 2023, this is a Firm deadline. All International mailings must be mailed by March 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 1 st to join the swap.

Sign Ups will close March 1 at midnight 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!

Aaah thank you Brenda. You are so kind. It is definitely with all the help from all participants and Kathy's guidance. It is great this group can keep going and our fearless regular host can take the break she needs.

Thank you for signing up.

We are having a lot of people that signed up already. Thank you! This month is a little shorter, 28 days, so I put the last day to sign up as March 1. If you are on the fence to join, please do. It should be a good month.
