    March Secret Pal Swap - Sign-ups end midnight Feb. 28. Come join the fun!

    It's the St. Paddy's Day month. 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 Pal’s 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 March 16th, 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 February 28 to join the swap.

    Do you have pets, if so what kind?
    Do you collect anything, if so what?
    What do you want the most and what don’t you want?
    Tell your SP something about yourself to make it easier for them to purchase for you.(Please fill this section out, it helps your SP buy for you.)

    Can you mail international?
    Email address:
    Phone number:

    Sign Ups will close February 28 at 11:59 PM 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!

    Smile Project in progress inspire by fat quarters received in Jan. Secret Pal Swap.

    So what is everyone doing with all their fun new fabric and gifts? I will try and make an effort to post when I use fabric I received and use in a project. I previously posted a table runner made from fabrics I received in this swap. The table runner is now in Australia, as it was in a swap also! Last month I received some beautiful patriotic fat quarters from Pamela and they inspired me to start a small quilt. I have the top done but I am note sure if I will add more. Here is what I am at sofar.

    We should get our names tomorrow. I love reading my secret pal likes and dislikes and just shop in my stash. I was gifted a huge amount from a mentor who worked for a thread company and made samples for their books. Lots of things I never would have purchased for myself, but too much to use in a lifetime.

    Look for free whirlwind block patterns online and scale it down. I used 2 inch strips and made sure to cut an equal number of blocks each way so the blocks will hold "hands". Each block will have a positive and a negative. so there is a bonus block for each block. Hint the second little quilt.
