Smile November 2022,Secret Pal Sign-Ups: Closes October 31 at midnight. Come enjoy the fun!

Hello swappers. I, Annaquilts, am helping out Have4boys for the month of November so she can free up some time for her mother. Please send pm with your information or questions to me, Annaquilts.

November Secret Pal Sign-Ups: Closes October 31 at midnight. Come enjoy the fun!

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 November 21, 2022, this is a Firm deadline. All International mailings must be mailed by November 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 October 31 to join the swap.

Email address:
Phone number:

Sign Ups will close October 31 at midnight PST and names will be sent out no later than November 4th (Usually the first, but like to give myself some leeway).

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!

Thank you for your quick responses. You are all an amazing group.

Just a little chit chat since the Holidays are coming up.

*Holiday fabrics, yea or nay?*

For me 4th of July is always good.
Other Holidays are harder.
ex. Fall, pumpkins and the occasional black cat works for me but I am not big on Halloween. So unless some one specifies I probably would not send Halloween or not more then a fat quarter or so. Same with Christmas, traditional versus cute Santas and snowman.

I do love celebrating different times of the year.
