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,mom4x, at  crochet_n_4u (at) yahoo (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  midnight on April 29th.   Please do not send your survey as attachment- Please cut and paste the survey in the body of your message.

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 May 1, 2014.. Packages must be POSTMARKED BYJune 10th, 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 June 15th, 2014..

5. E-mail the coordinator,mom4x ,  at  crochet_n_4u(at)yahoo(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. Do not PM her through Crochetville. 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 a  public and private THANK YOU is required.

 

7. Make sure your postage and receiver's address are correct before mailing. Mark your package with Crochetville Bookmark  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 ofJune 10th, 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!!

You should remove your address from the post, well actually you need to send this information via an email to mom4x, so you should remove the entire post.

 

You are probably new to swaps, so ask questions if you have any.

 

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,mom4x, at  crochet_n_4u (at) yahoo (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  midnight on April 29th.   Please do not send your survey as attachment- Please cut and paste the survey in the body of your message.

 

Have fun

Linda, I'm Patty and I'm the swap coordinator here on Crochetville. I edited your post to remove your last name and address for your privacy and safety. I know other forums and boards have people submit swap surveys to the thread, but we don't for several reasons, the most important being your Internet safety.

 

Please read through the guidelines, which tell you exactly how to play, and resubmit your survey to your swap hostess. Welcome to our swaps, and I hope you have fun. Bookmark swap is one of my favorites!

I love reading and I love bookmarks  :) This swap would be perfect for me BUT I didn't join it, because of where I live. I can buy some books in English here but they are double expensive. When I wanted to read Betty Hetchman's detective crochet stories, I ordered them from England but it took almost two months to come to me.... So I'll watch and admire the bookmark you'll make. Enjoy!

Yesterday I receiced my package from Jessica, Thank You.

post-619-0-57532000-1403111610_thumb.jpg I almost did this two book marks (the ones with the long tail)

post-619-0-55567100-1403111658_thumb.jpg Ever since I saw the movie commercials, I've wonder about the book, not usually what I read but maybe one of this days I might try it.

 

 

I hope you and your family are well and no more car trouble. Take Care. Brenda.
