Default Sign up for October Secret Pal Swap - Closes midnight Sept. 30 - Love to have swap

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. Please send items you would like to receive. Do not send smelly, holey, thin, or stained fabric o robviously used items that should be put in the trash. 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. This is an important part of participating. It lets your secret pal know you got their package.

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

Packages need to be mailed out by October 21, 2022, this is a Firm deadline. All International mailings must be mailed by October 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

Sign Ups will close September 30 at midnight PST and names will be sent out no later than October 2nd (Usually the first, but like to give myself some leeway).

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!

Hello everyone.

My momma made it to her 81st birthday yesterday.

She is losing the ability to move her left side as the tumors in her brain are growing, but she is in zero pain. She's not eating much but she is in a good mood.

I received my package today from my Secret Pal. It was filled with many goodies for me and one for my cat. I can't post a picture as my message slot does not have the icon to add picture to my post. She sent me a mystery book by Steven White, a Stack of purple material, also a lovely Christmas panel to make a small lap quilt with, , a package of peanut brittle, a quilt magazine, beeswax , also a desk needle threader, also a quilt pattern. Thank you for everything I will be reading my book shortly, right now I am finishing up my last book in my Amish mystery books. Everything is just awesome love it all Thank you again
