    2014 Yarn Swap - Let the swapping begin

    2014 YARN SWAP SURVEY: Please email your surveys auntbubbELs at nyc dot rr dot com. You will receive a confirmation email that your survey has been received. All swappers will be listed on the first post. 1. What is your full name (for mailing purposes only)? 2. What is your C'ville nickname? 3. Email address for swap information? 4. What is your complete mailing address? 5. Can you send to a foreign partner? 6. Are you willing to exchange with a smoker? 7. Do you or anyone in your household smoke? 8. Do you have any pets? 9. Do you have any allergies? (Fiber, food, pets, smoke, etc.) 10. What are your favorite colors? Please be specific. 11. Are there any colors you don't like? 12. What sort of items would you like to receive? 13. Are there items that you do not wish to receive? 14. Are there any crochet or fiber art items that you particularly enjoy receiving? 15. What other crafts besides crochet do you enjoy, if any? 16. Have you participated in a swap at C'ville before? Which ones? 17. Are you currently participating in any swaps? Which ones? 18. What extra goodies do you enjoy? (Tea, coffee, cocoa, etc. — these aren't required items for this swap, but this info is useful if your partner wishes to send some extras). 19. Have you read all of the swap rules, both for this specific swap and the Swap Guidelines? And do you agree to follow these rules? 20. Anything else you want your partner to know? 21. Is there anything you need the swap coordinator to know? (This will be removed before your survey is sent out to your swap partner.) **Submitting a survey means that you have read the swap rules in entirety and understand the consequences of not sending your exchange items as agreed, or for sending your swap items late.**
  7. Yarn Swap Swappers choice! Specify what yarn, what colors, and let your partner spoil you. The total value of your package must equal $25, which does not include shipping. You may include additional items based on your partner’s survey and emails, and don’t forget to stalk their Wish List for other ideas. General Information Swap Dates: This swap starts 1 July 2014 and ends 15 AUGUST 2014. All packages must be received by the ending date, so the mailing deadline for this exchange is 8 AUGUST 2014. All packages MUST be in the mail by 8 AUGUST 2014 (mailing deadline). Remember: Crochetville admin limits Villagers to two swaps at one time. If you are already signed up for two swaps, one must be completed before the Yarn Swap starts for you to be eligible to swap. See the Swap Guidelines. A swap will count as completed if you have mailed your final package and delivery confirmation information shows your package has been received OR your swap partner has posted a thank-you in the swap thread. GUIDELINES: Here are the rules. Please read them thoroughly before signing up. 1. Please submit a survey if you want to participate in this exchange. (See second post for Survey information.) Surveys should be emailed to the swap coordinator, auntbubbels at nyc dot rr dot com. Please list the swap name in the subject line. You will receive a confirmation email when your survey is received, and your username will be added to the list of swappers posted below. Surveys can be submitted until noon Eastern zone DST (New York City) on 29 June 2014. 2. It is not required that you answer all the questions on the survey (except for name, address, and Crochetville nickname), but it is a good way for your partner to know your other preferences: favorite color, allergies, etc. If you have been in a recent swap, you may want to let the hostess know who your swap partner was, so you are not accidentally teamed again (this has happened). 3. By submitting a swap survey, you agree to follow all Swap Guidelines and general forum guidelines. Please note—there is now a new requirement re: digital patterns. 4. Partner assignments will be e-mailed to you on 1 July 2014. Packages must be POSTMARKED BY 8 August 2014. **Proof of shipping is required whenever it is available (see Swap Guidelines for details), and the delivery confirmation number must be emailed or PM'd to the swap coordinator.** All packages should be received by the end of the swap on 15 August 2014. 5. E-mail the coordinator, auntbubbels at nyc dot rr dot com, when you receive your partner information at the start of the swap, and when you send and receive your exchange item(s) so that she can keep record of who sent and received. This is in addition to posting to the swap thread that you mailed or received your assigned partner and your packages. Lots of messages are posted to the swap thread daily. Please don’t make the swap coordinator go through all those messages to see if you sent/received your package!!! Remember, these emails are now required of all Crochetville swappers. Failure to do so will result in the accumulation of reputation points. 6. Please thank your partner for their thoughtfulness when you receive your package. It will make his or her day. **Thank-you’s MUST be posted on the swap thread, but you can post links to your blog for photos, etc., if you choose. Thank-you’s are REQUIRED!!** Please also thank your partner personally with a private email, as well as a post to the swap thread. The private thank-you lets your partner know that their package has been received, and the public thank-you lets the other swappers know what you received and adds to everyone’s enjoyment of the exchange. Both public and private thank-you’s are required. 7. Make sure your postage and receiver's address are correct before mailing. Mark your package with Crochetville Yarn Swap. Do not forget that delivery confirmation (or other proof of shipping) is required whenever it is available, and the delivery confirmation must be emailed to the swap coordinator. This provides proof of mailing in case your package is lost during transit. Delivery confirmation is now standard with first class shipping. 8. If you have a problem with your partner or an item you receive, please DO NOT post complaints to the swap board. Please PM or email the swap coordinator privately. 9. If your package is not postmarked by the Mailing Deadline of 8 August 2014, you will be subject to the consequences listed in the Swap Guidelines. Please contact the swap coordinator BEFORE the mailing deadline passes if there is a problem. 10. Since we are an international group, everyone is more than welcome to participate. That means that your exchange partner may live across the world and packages may take longer to arrive and cost more to ship. Keep this in mind when mailing items. 11. Most importantly, have fun! Happy Swapping!! IMPORTANT DATES: June 29: survey deadline August 8: mailing deadline August 15: end of swap * Information for All Crochetville Swaps * While you are required to read and understand the entire 2013 guidelines and the Copyright/Trademark Guidelines for Swaps in order to participate in a swap, the following major points are reminders. * Eligibility: To participate in any Crochetville swap, you must be at least 18 years old and have achieved Villager membership level.

You can include a book, pattern, or any other craft that you want to try. Sign Ups: - until June 1st Package Sending: now until June 23rd Please read the Copyright/Trademark Guidelines for Swaps and RAOKs: http://www.crochetvi...ad.php?t=132024 My email address is auntbubbels at nyc dot rr dot com If you want to include a pattern in your package, then it's important to know what to do and what not to do. ----> Special Note to All: If you list a digital pattern in your RAOK list, you are implicitly giving permission for this pattern to be purchased for you through Ravelry using either your Ravelry ID or your email address. If you do not wish to give this permission, please do not list any digital patterns. Include you RavelryID and or your email address in your wish list post, or send it to me. <---- Wish List Guidelines: You must be at least 18 years of age with a Crochetville account in good standing to participate. Post up to 10 tangible wishes . . . something someone can actually grant. Email me - auntbubbels at nyc dot rr dot com or PM me with your Crochetville Name, Email address, Real Name & Address. Read through the posted wish lists. If you see a wish you can grant, contact me via E-mail or PM for that person's info. Gifts can be made anonymously or not. Thank-you posts are mandatory and are to be placed in the provided "thank you" thread. Please do not identify your fairy godmother by real name or Crochetville username in your thank-you post. You may thank your fairy godmother personally if they have let you know who they are. And please mark your package as "My Favorite Things" Wish List so the person knows where to post a thank you. You don't have to have a wish list to send something, but you do have to send me your info, as stated above, to help give a level of security that people requesting addresses aren't doing so for nefarious purposes. If you grant a bigger wish from someone's wish list, please contact me so that I can ensure no one else sends that same item. Remember there are no strings attached...... wish, and it might come true..... give, and you might receive. Remember, sometimes one person's trash is another person's treasure. If you have a stash you want to prune or a gift certificate you will not use, send it out to someone who may want it. Make someone smile with your thoughtfulness. I promise you will be just as excited as the person you are sending it out to. You WILL have the joy of knowing you made someone's day special. The most important thing is to have fun ! OK, NOW FOR THE SMALL PRINT: Please, no outside wish list links.... it's just not fair that most people without them have 10 wishes in here and people with outside wish lists get 10 here and however many there. Please read RAOK guidelines here http://www.crochetvi...757&postcount=1 I will not be providing contact information for the entire list to gifters.
