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 Sept 1, 2014



 

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.




 

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.

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.

 

By submitting a survey, you agree to follow the Swap Guidelines, as well as the General Forum Guidelines. **Please note — there is a new requirement for digital patterns**

I have my bag! Whoo-hoo! It's bright and cheery and just perfect. I am so happy with it and my new hook. I'm jealous that you can make these hooks. The bag and hook match! I think I will line the bag so I can use it as my purse. It's the right size. Thank you!

I am so glad you like it!! The hook was so super easy to make! I need to figure out what colors I want so I can do my set of Susan Bates with the clay handles!

First off I want to apologize for not posting this yesterday. My day was pretty hectic yesterday.

 

I received my package in the mail yesterday and I absolutely love my bag! I have stickers stuck all over my house LOL and my kids loved their pumpkin bags. The Twix were devoured instantly by the kids. Thank you so much Maria for being such a wonderful swap partner!

 

This is the first year that I have done this particular swap and it most definitely will not be my last. I had so much fun looking through different patterns for bags that I Generally would have never even looked for.post-46820-0-46364300-1413404473_thumb.jpg
