GENERAL SWAP GUIDELINES FOR 2015

GENERAL SWAP GUIDELINES FOR 2015

Please be courteous to everyone and make sure that all of your fabric is of good quality and is of the same quality that you would want in return.  

When sending squishies in the mail please keep in mind the following and this will make it easier for all the players: 

Instead of doing a centralized swap, the swaps will be one on one.  This way you will have a list of people that you are responsible to sending to in a set time frame.   All swaps will be available for signup here and should be 10 swappers (5 to 7 at the least) before the swap closes.  Once we have 10 swappers, then the swap will close and you have a full 2 months to send and receive your squishies.   Hopefully, we will have several swaps going on to choose from and lots of swappers. 

When sending your package out, you are responsible for postage, please make sure that you have the correct amount.  Also, just for courtesy’s sake, please mark the outside of the envelope with the swap name and what group you are with.  I know that there are several members who swap in other groups, myself included, and it gets confusing at times, otherwise.

When you send the swap out, please mark down the date sent and received so we have a record and we don’t have to hunt you down to make sure that it is taken care of.  If you are not able to fulfill the swap, please back out by removing your name from the database before the closing date.  Again, cuts down on confusion.   If something happens during the swap and you’re not able to follow through, please let us know and we can possibly help you out.  We cannot help if you don’t let us know.  

Finally, I hate to say this, but if you have ongoing problems or issues and just don’t follow the guidelines, you may not be allowed to swap again.  I believe that what I have posted is fair to all.  If you have any other suggestions on how to make a swap work, please let me know.

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
