I love taking part in these swaps, all the fun things in life are now banned in the UK... no cinema, dining out, going our for drinks, meeting friends, going to quilting groups etc. - so partaking of swaps is at the moment the most fun we have.... so I just pay! That said... when chatting to my daughter yesterday, we worked it out that it is cheaper to send a 2KG box of approx 35cm x 20cm x 10cm via DHL that the Royal Mail and it is insured for more and gets there in 2 - 3 days not two weeks... something you might look in to so you can still take part.

Hugs

Caroline

Terri, keep the swaps coming.... I love them!
Thanks for the heads up Caroline. I will definitely look as I enjoy these swaps.

I know that my Santee has received theirs which is exciting. I have also been told to expect 2 separate packages which will be exciting!

I can totally do a "practice" zoom a few days before and help members who need it learn how to do!

I'm happy to do the 6th to open- with the time difference and being at work I'm not sure if I'll be around for Zoom but if I am I will happily join in. It sounds like a great idea for those of you who are able to though.

I have beenntold to expect 2 packages from my Secret Santa (lucky me!). One of them arrived yesterday and because I have sent to the postcode on the return address several times I am pretty sure I know who has sent something to me haha.

It is sat on my desk ready to be opened in a couple of weeks

What's been the time in the past years? I'm available any time that's picked.
And I see by tracking that my package might actually be on the way to it's final destination. I mailed it on Nov 9th !!!!
It has taken it's own sweet time.

Any time works for me. I always feel sorry for our International swappers when it comes to a time. Is there a decent time for everyone?
