Default Start Out the New Year with the January 2022 Secret Pal Swap - Signups close 12/31

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. 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 January 21, 2022, this is a Firm deadline. All International mailings must be mailed by January 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 December 30 to join the swap.

Email address:
Phone number:

Sign Ups will close December 31 at midnight PST and names will be sent out no later than January 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!

Yeah!!!!! I’m finally back on her and able to participate. Had somsratr a while new set because I deleated my old email address and couldn’t restate it and this QB account was under that old email address. So I couldn’t reset the password. Ugh😬😬😬😬 I’ve send 3. Emails to the moderators asking for help, I didn’t get any sort of response back so just set up another account. I feel like I’m starting from starting over. If some could help me getting my prior stats put on this page so I don’t look like a newbie, I’d greatly appreciate it. I’ve participated in LOTS of SS swaps over the years, some of the 3-4 month table runner or wall hanger swaps. I’ve bought and sold things on here from the yard sale page. I’d just like to get my status back in place if possible,please someone help me with this,
thnaks to all you great ladies for all the help,
