Calling all coffee lovers!!!

 

What could possibly be better than crocheting? Crocheting with coffee, of course!

 

During this swap, we'll swap coffee, coffee-flavored candy, coffee-colored yarn, coffee cups, non-perishable creamers....anything coffee-related you can imagine!

 


Please Note General Swap Guidelines:

All swappers must read the swap guidelines and the Copyright/Trademark Guidelines for Swaps and RAOKs. These guidelines apply to ALL swaps at Crochetville. Be sure you understand the guidelines and can follow them before signing up for this swap.

 

This swap may contain additional guidelines and requirements as stated below.

 

Contacting Your Swap Hostess

 

I prefer to be contacted via email for all matters related to this swap. Please send emails to nicole.patrick1@hotmail.com. Please be sure to enter Java Jamboree Swap and your Crochetville user name in the subject line of your message.



Items to Be Exchanged:
Each package will be required to have coffee-related items your partner will enjoy. The minimum value before shipping costs is $15. Extras are allowed, but not required. Please remember that if you go above the minimum requirements, your partner may not.

Other goodies (like tea, coffee, candy, thread, etc) are optional. Just remember if you send more than the minimum requirements, your partner might not.


Important Dates:

  • Sign-ups begin 7/15/13.
  • Sign ups end 7/31/13 at 5pm EDT. Sign up time is short, don't delay!

  • Partner will be assigned to you by 8/1/13 at 12:01 am EDT.

  • Post-mark deadline is 9/09/13

How to Sign Up for the 2013 Java Jamboree Swap:

1. Please submit a survey if you want to participate in this exchange. (See the second post in this thread for survey information.) Submit the survey via the method listed above for contacting your Swap Hostess (email).* Include the swap name and your username in the subject of the email.* I will send you a confirmation email when I receive your survey, and your name will be added to the list of exchangers posted below. Surveys can be submitted until 7/31/13 at 5pm EDT.

2. It is not required that you answer all the questions on the survey (except for full name, Crochetville user name, mailing address, and email address), but it is a good way for your partner to know your other preferences.

3. Swap partner assignments will be e-mailed to you by 8/1/13 at 12:01 am EDT.

4. Within one week of receiving your swap partner assignment, post in the swap thread to say you have received your partner. To make swap management easier, you should also contact your Swap Hostess to let her know you've received your partner via email at nicole.patrick1@hotmail.com

5. If you have a problem with your partner or an item you receive, please DO NOT post complaints to the swap board. Please contact the Swap Hostess privately.

6. Since we are an international group, everyone is more than welcome to participate. That means that your swap 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.

7. Sending in a survey means that you have read the rules for this swap as well as the Swap Guidelines and the Copyright/Trademark Guidelines for Swaps and agree to them.

Welcome CrochetKitten!  This is one of my fav's too.  I'm not going to be able to participate this year because I'm getting married 9/7.  I don't think I'm going to have time this year.  :(

smith - Can you confirm receipt of your partner, please (via email)?  It doesn't look like I have received that one.  Sorry if you have already sent it and I missed it somehow.

 

I'm enjoying my coffee in my Red Wings cup (black as always) this morning!  Usually on the weekend, DH and I sit on the porch and drink coffee in the morning.  That's always in one of my "cat mugs".  I have one that reads, "One cat just leads to another" and another one that reads, "Everything tastes better with cat hair in it."

I'm still alive, but my coffee maker is not. :( It decided it wasn't going to wake up this morning. But on the bright side, my dad said he's going to give us an espresso machine for our anniversary next month. :D It's the kind that can also take coffee pods. Now we just need to make it to the end of the month on instant coffee...
