Swap reminder

I just want to repost the swap reminder Sharon wrote last week. So for those of you in the swap, here is it:
Rose and I (Sharon) would like to remind all the ladies who are in the dishtowel and hot pad swap that the deadline is Saturday, April 25. I know that Saturdays are busy family days and that some of you may not get to the Post Office until early in the next week. That usually happens and so do not worry about it. Just let your swap buddy know that you are posting a bit late. I have heard already from some of you who have posted and some of you who will be a few days late and I would like to thank you for letting us know; when you touch base with either Rose or myself it really helps us to keep up-to-date with the swappers! I hope everyone has enjoyed this swap and would love to hear from you with ideas for our next swap.

Sharon, who lives in USA, and Rose, who lives in Australia, help me with the swaps. We couldn't do it without them. I'm sure you all join with me to thank them for the work they do. Swaps take a lot of organising and hard work and the fact that they run so well is a fine testament to these wonderful ladies. So please add your thanks as well as suggestions for the next swap.

  2. I had such a good time sewing and stitching my swaps and hoping my swapper would like them. I have not heard from her so hope they got there safely. I,too,look forward to the next one. I appreciate how much work they must be to organise but they are such good fun.

  3. I am one of the ones that have contacted my swap partner and told her that I will be mailing her package on Monday. As always, running late!

  4. Many thanks to Rhonda, Rose and Sharon for the great effort you put into this swap. It's been lots of fun. Will put on my thinking cap and try to think of something that we could swap.

    Blessings Gail.

  5. I do so want to thank them for their hard work ~ I truly enjoyed my first ever swap! Pippa and I have made the exchange, and we are just waiting for post offices in UK and US to catch up with us! Thanks again, it was lovely. ~ Mia

  6. Thanks to all involved in organizing another great swap. I am waiting on my swap buddy's address to get my package mailed off - so it will be late.

    Jaz, this is my 3rd swap and each one has been fun. Each one has a theme. I did the tote bag one, the pin cushion one and now this one. Just keep reading this blog and they will let you know when the next swap is and you sign up and they match you to a partner. I think they do 2-3 per year.

    How about placemats or napkins for the next swap? You can never have too many cloth napkins. I don't know if you have done those before.

  13. Thanks for organising the swap, I really appreciate all the effort that went into it. I had a lot of fun making mine and it was sent off some time ago, I'm still waiting to hear whether it's arrived safely.

    Sorry but I forgot to let you know here that I'd done it.

    Hope everyone gets something they like.

  15. Yes, thank you Sharon & Rose. Organising something like this is like an iceberg - most of us see only a tiny amount of what the two of need to do to keep everything running smoothly.

    I mailed my parcel on Friday, it should arrive about Tuesday I think.

  17. I sent Rose pictures of mine, tried to contact Sharon, but her mail came back for some reason. I sent mine a week ago, but haven't heard from my partner since the first contact. I hope she got it!
