Default May Secret Pal Swap - Sign up open until midnight April 30. Come join the fun!

Please note: there is a delay in items being shipped. Please be understanding. In some post offices in the US there are major delays.

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, or stained fabric. 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. 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 May 19th, this is a Firm deadline. All International mailings must be mailed by May 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

Sign Ups will close April 30 at midnight PST and names will be sent out no later than April 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!

Not sure if anyone of our participants are interested but JaniceMc hasw a fabulous BOOM 26 getting ready to start. If you need a sponsor, let me know. I would be glad to recommend you. YOu pick a fabric and send up to 19 F8 and will get that same number back. You make them into blocks and you will get your fabric back in different blocks that each particpant made. It is so much fun. We would love to have you.

Boom 26 - Sign-ups now open thru 4/30/21*** - Quiltingboard Forums

Here is a quilt made with some of my blocks from many moons ago.

I love following these Booms - everyone is so creative! Postage cost and time etc makes it completely prohibitive to do internationally but I still love to follow along and work out what I would make with each fabric choice.
