    Ornament Swap 2018

    Ho Ho Ho, it is time to have some fun. This will be the nineth Annual Ornament Swap. Here are the details and if you have any questions PM me.

    Ornament Swap Guidelines:

    1. Sign up by October 12, 2018. I must have your sign up by the end of this day. Late entries will not be allowed to participate. No exception!

    Mail to your partner on or before November 16, 2018. That is a hard date and must be met by everyone. Please make sure you have a tracking/confirmation number on your package. It just makes it easier to find in the event a package is delayed or lost in the mail.

    2. The Ornament must be handmade. It doesn't *have* to be quilted. But, please make it something that you would like to receive.

    3. Each participant can sign up for only one swap partner this year please. If all works out this year, maybe we will open it up to two ornament buddies next year.
    4. This will be an international swap so if mailing internationally is a concern for you, please let me know at the time you sign up. The person mailing internationally must mail their ornament by November 9, 2018.

    5. This will be a direct person to person mailing. I will PM everyone your swap person's name that you will be sending to on October 13th and 14th. This will give me time to sort out names and draw them out. Then the ornament mail out begins any time after the first of November; but remember the deadline is November 16th for all US mailing and November 9th for all international.

    6. If you would like to participate, please PM me the following information:

    Screen name:
    Real name:
    Complete Address:
    phone number (for hostess use only)
    Can you mail internationally
    I can be an ornament angel in case of non-performance by another member?

    Any additional information that will make it easier for your partner to pick the correct types or colors of ornaments to make for you.

    EXAMPLE. I have a small tree, blue color schemes, or perhaps I collect___.

    7. Make sure that you enclose a note or card in your ornament mailing box to let the person know who you are! That way they can thank you and give you credit on the board when they post a picture.

    8. Please read the guidelines for all swaps on the board at this link. It applies to this swap.http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

    9. Have Fun and let your creativity flow! This always is such a special swap. Please PM me is you have any questions. I will be happy to assist in any way I can.

    10. This is a Secret, names drawn from the bowl randomly, swap and you will not necessarily be mailing to the same person you will receive from. But, it could happen. Remember this is a secret so please donít let anyone on the list know who you have.

    11. Please PM me with your tracking/confirmation number information when you have sent your package.

    Also, PM me once you receive a package. This is so important! I can keep track of everything going and coming. This will make it a little easier on me and keep us on track when the deadline arrives. Please be a kind swapper and help me out in this way, ok?

    12. Please make sure you can make and send the ornament on time before committing to the swap. If somehow you have signed up and there is a problem that arises and you cannot send to your partner, let me know immediately by sending a pm here on the board! We don't want to disappoint someone do we?

    Last, but not least, letís share pictures of our creations as we go. The other person does not know who is sending to them until they receive it, so it will be fun to see and share as we go along. OK?

    Have fun and enjoy your ornament swap everyone.
    Hostess for the Ornament Swap. Watch for details coming later on this year. Come join in on all the fun

    I'm in, please sign me up. I even have several ornaments already made. Will have to see if there is anything new I want to try. I've never signed up for the ornament exchange. But, I watched your thread last year and thought it looked like fun.

    I knew we were getting close when Teri posted last week about Secret Santa & you mentioned the ornament swap. Haven't missed in 6 years, it's so much fun!

    I bought a new to me pattern off ebay. I am excited to make it and see how it turns out. Yay! I think the hardest part is choosing a pattern for the swap I haven't done before. LOL!

    Are we allowed to use an embroidery machine to make ornaments?
