    Description:
    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 every month, and the person you send to will be different than the person you receive from.




    Please do not send me a sign up PM until the new sign-up sheet is available

    DUE TO MISUNDERSTANDING AND HURT FEELINGS, ONCE YOU GET YOUR PACKAGE FROM YOUR SECRET PAL, YOU WILL NEED TO SEND A PRIVATE MESSAGE TO THE PERSON WHO SENT THE PACKAGE TO YOU TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU DID RECEIVE IT AND TO THANK THE SENDER. AFTER YOU HAVE THANKED YOUR SECRET PAL, YOU WILL NEED TO SEND ME A PRIVATE MESSAGE TELLING ME THAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED YOUR PACKAGE SO THAT I CAN KEEP ACCURATE RECORDS. I cannot send a PM to everyone asking for package updates, so please remember to keep me informed on your mailing date and your date received.




    PACKAGES NEED TO BE SENT OUT BY October 14th this is a FIRM deadline (NOT A SUGGESTION). If for some reason you cannot mail by the 14th and are considering not signing up, then send me a private message and we can see if it can be worked out. IF YOU KNOW THAT YOU CANNOT MAIL BY THAT DATE, PLEASE DO NOT SIGN UP. You can send your package as early as you'd like!


    If you are sending an international package it will need to be mailed by the 10th of October. If that is not possible then please say no to International mailing on your sign-up sheet. Due to mail processing, our mail dates for international mailing has to be as early as possible! No later than the 10th of October to prevent delay of next month‘s signup. It can take many weeks to reach your SP so any delays in mailing can delay the start of the next month’s sign-up sheet being posted.

    International mailings—it is imperative that you keep your copy of the Customs Declaration Notice that you fill out until your SP has notified you that they received their package. If a problem encountered with the package, you may need to PM me the information from that sheet in order to work effectively with the Postal Service.


    You have to send me a PM every month you want to sign up and send me your information. I have no way to keep track of people signing up for more than 1 month at a time. Please don't post a message on the thread about signing up, as I may not see it. (Also, please make it clear to me if you are asking for more than one SP.)



    Once you have decided to join the swap, please send me a PM with the completed information sheet.


    I would prefer that you review and then send your information sheet to me every month that you sign up for the SP swap. This review will allow you to make minor changes about holidays, personal preferences, etc.

    Our International board members are welcome to join the swap.

    If I do not have a valid email or phone number, you cannot participate in this swap.

    Your secret pal is excited to receive your name and really wants to send you a great package. Please help by answering the questions as completely as possible.

    Screen Name:
    Real Name:
    Address:
    Address:
    City, State, Zip:
    Favorite Colors:
    Favorite Candy:
    Your favorite notion/fabric line, etc:
    Your least favorite color(s)
    Least favorite candy
    Least favorite notion/fabric line
    Brand of sewing machine:
    Do you have an embroidery machine:
    Is there anything you like to collect?
    Besides quilting, what do you like to do?
    Do you have Allergies (smoke, cats, dogs etc)
    Do you have Allergens (you smoke, have cats, dogs etc)
    Can you mail international?
    Do you hand embroidery?
    The ONE thing I want the most is_______
    What holidays do you celebrate?:
    Anything you would NOT like to receive:
    How long have you been sewing/quilting?
    What are you currently working on:
    What types of books do you like to read?
    Would you like to receive gently used items such as templates, patterns or appliqué books etc?
    Do you have a pet? What kind?
    The fabric color I am looking for is___
    What is your favorite beverage?Additional info (the more info you provide, the better):
    email address:
    phone number:


    This form will be given to your secret pal (minus the email address and phone number) . The more you put on there, the better she/he will be able to get things you'd like. Additional information may be helpful to them as well.

    There is a 10 dollar budget for this swap. Items from your stash or homemade items are not included in the $10 limit. Postage isn't included in the ten dollars. The most important thing to remember with the budget is to have fun, but please do NOT SPEND MORE THAN $10.

    If you want ideas on what to send, look at the previous swaps.

    Examples of some fun things to receive are: fabric, notions, notepads, pens, postcards, handmade items, little things like that.

    Sign ups will close the 30TH of September and names will be paired on the 1st of October and sent out no later than the 2nd of October.



    I really want to stress that if you sign up, PLEASE follow thru.

    It's a horrible feeling to not receive a package.


    I will be keeping a list of people that don't follow thru. It is not right and it's been happening a lot here lately; if it continues, we will not be allowed to do secret swaps anymore.

    Please make sure that you put your real name and screen name inside the package so the person receiving the package knows who to thank.

    1. You must ship your package using a method that provides tracking and delivery confirmation. You can purchase it at the post office or if you print postage, it is free for priority mail and 70 cents for all others.


    2. If your pal does not receive her/his package within a reasonable time (7 days max for within the same country. Then I will need tracking information, 15 days for between countries. There are exceptions, but I MUST be notified of any delays in sending on your end). Failure to comply may result in the following:

    A public note that you failed to send would be added to the Group Activity matrix.

    If your pal is still empty handed at the end of the month, it is possible that negative feedback will be posted to your account.

    This is why it is imperative that you keep the hostess informed on ANY mailing issues. Along with negative feedback, you will not be allowed to participate in future secret pal swaps. It is also possible that other coordinators will not allow you to participate in their swaps.

    It's all about fun, so please have fun with it.

    If you have questions, please PM me and I will try to answer as quickly as possible.

    This swap has been approved by PatriceJ.
    Group Activity Matrix is here:

    SHOULD YOU HAVE PROBLEMS, QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS PLEASE PM ME IMMEDIATELY!

    Coordinated by: Lori Peercy
    (If you want to be added to this group activity, then please send a private message to the coordinator.)

    Sent my PM to Lori, and told her I'm glad she is such a glutton for punishment trying to keep all of us on the straight and narrow. LOL
