cilvee ADMIN October 5, 2011
Hello Everyone! Just wanted to let you know that we are going to be taking a bit of a break to catch up and enjoy the holiday season. We will start the next round early in 2012. See you then!
This group discussion is for members only.
Group DescriptionSign up for this swap ends June 24 , 2011 Partners will be chosen and named by June 30/.
The swap will include the following:
1. Fabric, quilt store quality only. (1.5 yards)**NO Jo Anns or other chain store fabric.** exceptions are made if it is specifically asked for...i.e. DS Picnic line carried by Jo Anns. PLEASE be sure that the fabric is something that your partner would like, and is MODERN!!!
2. Handmade item, can be anything you think your partner would like to have.
3. Item your partner can decorate their sewing space with. (You can make this your handmade item)
Remember this is the Make Mine MODERN swap!!! So keep this in mind when choosing your items and fabric. Look at your partners fabric wish lists (on their profile).
Part of the swap is to take pictures to give your secret partner little hints as to what you are sending them. Pictures can be taken as often as you like but you must post at least once a month. We don't want a dead group for 3 months do we?!? So this will hopefully keep us all excited.
We will also be posting topics of discussion and questions to answer occasionally on the boards. This helps for your partner to get to know you and your interests. Most questions are sent to us by your partner for a reason, so please be sure to answer these.
Also feel free to post your own questions for us to answer!
As you may have noticed I mentioned SECRET partner. Well, that means you have no clue who is getting what until they get it! More fun for us!
This swap will end August 15, 2011. If you can not meet the deadline please do not sign up. Packages must be sent on or before that day or you will not be allowed to swap again. Sorry, but I want to keep things fun and its not fun if you don't get your swap in time. (shipping will be allowed starting August 1international, and August 10 for domestic)
If for some reason something comes up and you absolutely cannot send your package by that date please let your administration know, that way we can inform your partner. We do understand that life happens. Just please take the time to let us know. Of course sending early would be a solution, if possible.
Once your package is received, be sure to take many pictures of the goods so we all can see! Also make sure to thank your partner for your swap. People put a lot of time and effort into these swaps so take the time to say "Thank you"
Be sure to sign up and update your flickr profile page. Also send any important information to administration: address, allergies,....whatever you think your partner should know and you don't necessarily feel like sharing :)
Remember that only members can see the discussion and if anything concerns you please report it to administration and we will take care of the situation.
Once partners are assigned, please be sure to contact your swap parent first and foremost. Only that person knows who your partner is. If you have problems getting a hold of that person for some reason, feel free to contact another one of us and we will try to get a hold of them for you, or resolve any minor questions which don't reveal partner information.
Also please keep in mind for this swap. Every swap we have someone who may not be as satisfied with their package. We can not control what your partner actually sends to you!! We also can not control postal errors or losses. So please keep these things in mind when signing up for our swap. We do the best we can, but have no control over what others do. We also do not guarantee a swapper who is at the same level of experience or in your shipping preference.....again, we do the best we can do, but can not guarantee these things.
Also remember that our international shipping can sometimes take a long time. We also have to keep in mind that some packages may be returned to sender only to be resent....so please also think about these things and be patient while we work things out.
I think that is is, I may update this as the rules change so keep checking back.
