    I have a question. Are we supposed to make just like a needle book type think or can it be more like a hussif that holds needle scissors and maybe even a small pin cushion? I'm going to PM and join and have a few ideas but I wanted to make sure I was on the right track first. Oh, and can anyone tell me where pictures are being posted of previous needle case swaps? Maybe that would help me too!

    I'm looking forward to a Christmas swap too. But remember that there is no official theme so it is up to you to set up a Christmas swap with your partner. I suppose it is ok for her to send you a Christmas one while you send her another kind.

    Well, my understanding is that a simple needlecase is all that is required, but some make a hussif. The hussifs are well received. Look up previous needle case swaps to see pictures. Have fun. Some people add little gifts like needle, fabric or such, but you don't have to. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Thanks Blue Cat! I'm a little nervous but very excited for this exchange! This is my first needle book swap also but I'm up for the challenge! Plus, thanks to Sandy, it looks like I will have a few free days to do some hand stitching for the case cover! I need something to do if the power does go out so this will be perfect! Take care everyone!

    Thanks Blue Cat! I've only had one day off since the beginning of August. I don't like the reason for having off but I am so exhausted that I'll take a day or two off any way I can get them! I can't hardly believe this storm. It is unbelievable how devastating it is.

    Good to hear you're okay Lynnie! Looks like Manhattan didn't fare so well. Now I hear snow's a-coming at the end of the week. Who ticked off Mother Nature?!

    Hi Guys,

    You should all have your partners details by now..... if you have not received them please PM me asap.

    I will be away until Saturday so if there are any problems I will not be able to deal with them until then.

    Don't forget that this is a partnered exchange and you should contact your partner to discuss any theme that you would wish to have on this occasion.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not forget to PM me when you post and receive. Also please remember that the deadline for posting is the 30th November 2012, this is a set in stone deadline as Christmas post could create problems for this exchange.... this date does give you plenty of time to make your needlecase.

    If you are having problems, do not hesitate to contact me so we can work something out. It is not fair to leave your partner without a needlecase especially as any problem can be easily sorted!

    Hugs and enjoy the exchange!

    Caroline
