Hey, I sent my info again in case something had happened. I changed it a little bit so please use the one from tonight in the swap. Thank you for doing this. It is definitely a nice way to bring some cheer to the winter months.

Okay, all the names are out. Have fun with this Thanksgiving month package.

I want to take a moment and thank everyone of you who participate. I loved this swap and when it was going to have no host, I did not want it to end. I volunteered and have to say I love hosting it.

Have fun!

Kathy

I already picked up one of my secret pal's most wanted and ordered another item that should come in this week. I hope to send it out as soon as the item comes in.

Kathy,

We are all so grateful that you took on the task of running the SP swap. I love getting something lovely through the mail and I love shopping for others, it makes me have to think. But most of all I love the friendships that I have made on here! So again.... Thank you so much!

Hugs

Caroline x

Thank you Caroline.

A little note for international shipping. If you have any advice about shipping, please share. I know one participant uses pirate shipping (I believe that is the name) and it was much cheaper to ship. I also see DHL is a much cheaper shipping service to.

Any one have experience?

I have used pirate shipping and it is cheaper but you can't use USPS envelopes or boxes.

HmmmmÖ. Thatís interesting, as I use pirate ship and send the bubble mailers flat rate almost every month. I donít get much of a price break on them though. The biggest savings Iíve seen have been with international and first class domestic. I just sent one first class today for 4 that would have been 7. Last month I had to mail through the post for international and paid the same for first class as priority costs me on pirate ship. I definitely recommend checking it out! 😊

How is everyone. Busy her. Made a quilt for a friend's 60th birthday. She picked colors and I made it. Post a picture once I am on the computer.

Default I received a great swap package from PamelaOry!

Tons of luscious beige fabrics (my wanted item), a stunning precut bundle with two sizes of fabric, an adorable sewing machine pattern, two spools of Aurifil thread, a Fall 3-D card with hot chocolate and tea in it, cutter blades (another loved item), a chocolate bar, and the most precious "thimble-shaped" beeswax hanging from a clasp for my thread!

Love it all! Many thanks!

Deborah

Stay healthy all.
