2013 Scarf/Cowl Swap - completed

45 posts in this topic

Winter Scarf/Cowl Swap


General Swap Requirements:  This swap requires that you send one winter scarf or cowl of your partners liking, but other goodies are welcome!!!

 

Swap Dates: This swap starts October 1 2013 and ends October 31 2013. All packages must be received by the ending date, so the mailing deadline for this exchange is  October 23 2013. All packages MUST be received by October 31 (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 Winter Scarf/Cowl 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. 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 on  September 29 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 October 1 2013. Packages must be POSTMARKED BY October 23 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 October 31 2013.

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 Scarf/Cowl 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 October 23 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!!

Hmm, tempting... We don't really have very much cold weather out here, though I've been seeing so many lovely cowl patterns published recently that I'm wishing we did. Hmm....

Hi! ... Just a thought, DesertCrocheter... Keeping in mind that you live where it's warm, what about a lightweight scarf in a lace-weight yarn? Would that still be too warm for you to wear?

Oh... I'm sorry. I realize that I misspoke in my message to DesertCrocheter. I see in the initial post about this swap that it is for a "winter" scarf/cowl. .... I don't know. I still think we cold make something light for you... If that would be permitted.  :manyheart

Survey sent. I haven't done this swap in quite some time & since it is already getting cold here it seems like this might be just the ticket.

Okay, you ladies twisted my arm. I just sent Aunt Bubbels my survey. maybe we'll have a coldish winter. ;)

 

PS  I'm on vacation next week, with my niece and nephew and sister, so I may not respond to emails right away. Don't panic! I'll try to log on Tuesday or Wednesday and get my partner info so I can go shopping Friday after I drop them off at the airport.

Mom! It's great to be partnered with you. Again--I think we were partners last year or the year before, maybe? Anyway, I'm going to have a lot of fun with this, because our color preferences are so similar. But I have neither the pattern nor the yarn, so I am off to search IC, where i know they have published a bunch of cowls over the years.

 

And even if the kids don't want to be dragged to a yarn store, they're going. LOL

Okay, I bought the pretties yarn for Mom4x's scarf/cowl item yesterday, and found the pattern I want to make her last night. I can't wait to start working with it tomorrow!
