May Square Swap

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the May Square Swap of 2013, Crochetville's 9-month long celebration of crocheted square love!
General Swap Requirements: Each swapper is required to send **ONLY** one square with a FLOWER in the name (size as specified by your partner).

 

Swap Dates: This swap starts 1 May 2013 and ends 31 May 2013. All packages must be received by the ending date, so the mailing deadline for this exchange is  24 May 2013. All packages MUST be received by 31 May 2013 (swap 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 March Square 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, tiffer93, at tiffer93 AT gmail DOT com. 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 5 p.m. EST (New York City) on  30 April 2013.

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 by 1 May 2013. Packages must be POSTMARKED BY 24 May 2013. **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 31 May 2013.

5. E-mail the coordinator, tiffer93, at tiffer93 AT gmail 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 Square 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. 

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 24 May 2013, 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!!

We've got an odd number of swappers at the moment, so I hope someone else will want to join. If not, there will be a round-robin grouping. I'll give it a bit longer, then assign the partners in the morning at the latest.

Partner emails just went out shortly ago! There were 11 swappers so there is a round robin group, but I think I was able to pair everyone up with someone new. Have fun ladies!

Started working on my square and watching the baseball game on TV.....Had to stop working on my square when I realized that it was no longer square  :sigh because I was getting toooo wrapped up in baseball and not paying attention to the directions.    

 

I'm going to finish it up tonight and keep the TV turned off.     :rofl

Sent my square out today.  I hope Mandy likes it!  It's a pattern that I have been wanting to try for a long, long time and this was the perfect opportunity for it!

I now have a square (It's really square...after the TV watching incident) and have sent it off.   It's traveling to the UK so it might take a little longer. 

 

I hope Emily likes it and it's in colors she can use.   :sun

Got MrsMcKee's square mailed today. Estimated delivery is Saturday. I hope you like it as much as I do. I'll be making more of this square in different colors to put together an afghan for my sister-in-law.

 

Have a great evening!
