Pincushion Swap - continued


Ok...after some thought I think I should post some "rules" - don't ya just hate rules, but sometimes they are necessary. Check the post before this one for what got this swap started.

1. I am limiting the swap to the first 30 people that sign up (don't panic, you don't have to make 30 pincushions!) You don't have to be a blogger to participate - but you do have to have email. Just send a message to jqd@comporium.net and you are in!

2. You can swap either 5 or 10 pincushions....send me 5, and I will send you 5 back; send me 10 and I will send you 10 back.

3. Either write your name/location on the back or bottom of the pincushion or attach a label, it will be fun to see where the ones we receive came from.

4. All pincushions should be made of fabric and nothing breakable - remember, these will be going through the mail and need to be easily mailed. You can be as creative as you like. Use common sense on size - remember I have to mail these out to people. You can applique, embroider, embellish with buttons, beads, etc or whatever you choose to do - just nothing that could get broken in the mail or that adds a lot of weight.

5. When you send your pincushions to me, include in the envelope, a return mail envelope which you have addressed.

If you are in the USA, then have the envelope prepaid with the same amount of postage that you needed to send your package to me.

If you are outside the USA, then please include in the envelope a money order in USA Currency for the amount of postage it cost for you to send to me. I will let you know if the cost was significantly different for me to return the pincushions to you. I think this will be the easiest way to handle for now. If I come up with something else, Iwill let you know.

6. I will allow sign ups for the swap until May 15, and will do the swap on July 1, 2008 - so you have to have the pincushions to me on or before June 30, 2008.

7. Once you sign up, I will send you an email with my mailing address, and when I receive your pincushions, I will send you an email letting you know they have arrived.

8. And this is the last and most important rule.....Keep it FUN!

Hi! I'd love to join the pincushion swap! I just bought a pattern for making pincusions and this would be perfect.

What if there won't be others? I think there's a minimum number to play in this... What do you think?
