Christmas Ornament Swap 2016 is Open for Enrollment!!
Ho Ho Ho, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. It is time to have some fun. This will be the seventh Annual Christmas Ornament Swap. Here are the details and if you have any questions PM me.

Christmas/Holiday Ornament Swap Guidelines:

1. Sign up by October 22, 2016. I must have your sign up by Midnight CDT. No late entries please.

Mail to your partner on or before November 18, 2016. International packages must be mailed on or before November 11, 2016. These are hard dates 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.

Even though I know you want to, hold off on opening that great package until December 3rd at 2:00pm CST. It is always so much fun to open them with the others who are participating in the swap.

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. I am sorry if this causes any unhappiness. But, I am trying to be on the safe side since this is my first year running this.

4. 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 24th and 25th. 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.

5. 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 should mail as early as possible so the swapper overseas can have their ornament along with us by the end of November or so.

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.

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! 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, let’s 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 Christmas ornament swap everyone.
