    I am trying to get my partners pincushion made and in the mail on time.

    We are still struggling with the loss of mom, and all the stuff related to PAYING
    for the cremation to which they have not done yet because we have not gotten
    all the required money to them yet.

    I PROMISE to work as hard as I can to get the pincushion out on time.

    I am so excited - my partner's pincushion left in today's mail. I am usually a right-on-the-deadline kind of girl, but this time I am EARLY! Woo-hoo. This is a fun swap. I love both pincushions & needle cases - very fun to collect them.

    Can someone advise me on international shipping? I tried to mail a PC today and was told the shipping would have to be express mail in order to get a tracking number (ie. $52.00). Is that normal? If so - this may be my first and only international swap partner.

    Old_Rosebud, you can ship priority mail and get your tracking number. That is what a friend of mine does. I do mine online at the USPS website. You can fill out the paperwork online and everything. then just drop at the PO. When you go into the post office, it costs you more because we need to pay the person working. You can just print out the label on regular paper and attach it with tape to the box. Works even if you are using the envelopes. You can order those online thru their website as well. I hope that helps. Seems rather silly to have to pay that much. I shipped a whole quilt express mail for that price.

    I usually ship priority, just so it might get there quicker. Once it leaves the hands of the USPS they can't track it anymore anyway. In the SP swaps international partners don't have to get a tracking number since your customs declaration gives proof of shipping.

    Another secret I know is that do not claim over $20 on the contents. It can be held up in customs and they have to pay more to get it out.

    Yes, Lynnie, that could be the case. But who would ever short you? You are a wonderful swapper.

    Pat - I had to 'Google' needle cases last month because I had never heard of them either!
    I will be postal tomorrow. I HATE shipping on the deadline, but baseball for my DS has eaten up all my free time for the past three weeks. I have my pin cushions finished - I just can't get myself to the PO! Grr.
    Sorry to my SP's for making them wait! I will try shipping international without a tracking number. If I can get it under $20 that will make me happy.

    I have a pic of my pincushion on my camera. I'll post it later tonight. I am pleased with how it turned out - I used a friendship flower pincushion pattern I was given in a different swap around Christmas time. I can't wait to make one like this for me.

    Old-Rosebud I posted my mug rug to USA last week from Australia. For international it goes on weight so I added a few goodies which would of gone for the same price of a mug rug by itself.
    I posted it cheaply and the plain envelope came back to me empty mind you... When I posted again with my "practice" mug rug :-(( and new goodies I made sure everything was in bubble rapped envelope for safety. Postage was under $14 without tracking. ($6 more for tracking).
    An expensive first swap for me.

    Here is a sneak peek at the top of my pincushion that I am
    making.

    I know today is the mail by date, but with all that has been going on
    with my life I am going to be mailing either on Saturday or Monday at
    the latest.


    Secret partner I HOPE you will like the pincushion I am making for you.

    QL - perfect fabric for a pin cushion! Glad to see you here - been thinking about you.
    Thanks for all the advice on international shipping. Went back to the PO today, got a different employee, and low and behold it only cost me $12! Much better!
    Mrsmck - Oh no! Did someone develop sticky fingers during transit? If my box comes back empty I will be VERY disappointed...
    I am loving that octopus/flower pin cushion! Everybody has done a great job and the creativity is very inspiring.
