Purse/Tote Bag Swap -- Get 'em Mailed gals!!!

391 posts in this topic

The Fall Purse/Totebag exchange started Oct 1st, with exchanges to be received by Nov. 30th.

Here's a blog button for anyone who wants to post it to their blog/website:

Please save the button to your own computer instead of linking to it here.

 

Each person will send out one purse or tote bag to their partner to be received by November 30th. Your partner's preferences will be emailed to you along with your partner's name on Oct 1st.

 

Here are the rules:

 

Rules - Please read them ALL

 

1. Please submit a survey (link listed above) if you want to participate in this exchange. I will send you a confirmation email, and your name will be added to the list of exchangers posted below.

 

2. It is not required that you answer all the questions on the survey (except for name, address, and C'ville nickname,and if you want a purse or tote bag), but it is a good way for your partner to know your other preferences, favorite color, allergies, etc. :hook Please complete the survey before sign ups close on September 25th.

 

3. Purse/Tote exchange assignments will be e-mailed to you on Oct 1st. Partners must receive their packages by November 30th, so please mail no later than November 20th to ensure exchanges are received by the deadline.

 

4. E-mail the coordinator, Juli at juliwyant[at]bellsouth.net when you send and receive your purse/tote bag so that she can keep record of who sent and received.

 

8. Please thank your partner for her thoughtfulness when you receive your exchange item. It will make his or her day. Thank you’s can be posted on your blog or on the crochetville message board. Thank you's are REQUIRED!!

 

9. Make sure your postage and receiver’s address is correct before mailing. Mark your package with “Crochetville Purse/Tote Exchangelâ€. I highly recommend mailing with delivery confirmation just in case the mail is delayed or lost.

 

11. If your partner does not receive a purse/tote from you by November 30th, C'ville administration may decide to exclude you from other group exchanges until it is received. There are exceptions due to certain circumstances. If for some reason you will be unable to fulfill your exchange commitment, please let me know ASAP -- this is VERY important -- so that I can make arrangements to reassign your partner. If your package will be sent late, please advise your partner and me ASAP.

 

12. Since we are an international group, everyone is more than welcome to participate, that means that your pal may live across the world and packages may take longer to arrive. Keep this in mind when mailing items.

 

13. Most importantly – have fun! :yay:cheer

Hi Juli,

 

Is it possible to ask swap partners to share their blogs as that'll give some indication on what they like as well?

 

Thanks

Hi Emy! That's a great idea! A lot of C'ville members list their blog urls in their signatures. But if your partner doesn't, you can always email them and ask if they have a blog. This isn't a secret exchange....so you can email and ask questions before you make your purse/tote for your partner.

 

Hugs! Juli

A button is a small picture people can put on their blogs to show they are in the swap....just something fun. I have a whole slew of them on my page from C'ville exchanges. :) It just kinda shows people what you like to make/exchange, and gives C'ville a plug since people usually make them links to c'ville or the exchange thread. :)

 

Rebecca is a sweetie and she's making one for us. :)

 

Hugs! Juli

Hey Rebecca! :) Thanks for making a button!! I think it looks just fine the way it is. You don't have to try something different unless you want to. I love the autumn leaves you put in!! :clap
