    November Secret Pal Swap - sing-ups close October 31 at midnight. Come join 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. 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 and leave feedback.

    Please take pictures and post in group as everyone likes to see what you get.

    Packages need to be mailed out by November 19th, 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 September 30 to join the swap.

    Phone number:

    Sign Ups will close October 31 at 11:59 PM PST and names will be sent out no later than November 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!

    I am just reminding everyone I will do my best to get names out tomorrow mid morning. I am hosting the ornament swap this month too, so I am doing a balancing act.

    LAQUITA,

    Your mailbox is full and you cannot accept any new messages. Please delete so I can get your secret pal information to you.

    Wow! Everyone is so quiet! I thought I must have missed subscribing to the thread. I'm almost ready to mail my SP's package to her. It will travel about 3000 miles to get there!

    How is everyone doing? My secret pal package will go out this week. I want to make her something special. My partner loves wool.

    My secret pal blessed me. I received an envelope from Etsy and in it was a Patchwork of the Crosses English Paper Piecing kit to make two blocks. I love the pattern and had not seen it before. Name:  SP EPP Nov 19.jpg

    Here is a link to what the block looks like when finished. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/373517362838152502/

    Thank you Queenbarbie J.

    This is just a notice to let you all know where I am right now. I am doing my very best to keep up with the swaps. Please have patience with me.

    My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer yesterday. We will be meeting with the surgeon next Thursday. As a cancer survivor, I know the battle she has in front of her and I will be walking this walk with her.

    Please, if you have any issues, let me know by PM and I will do my best to get back to you in a timely fashion.

    Thank you for understanding,

    Kathy
