Exchanges Calendar for 2013!!

Ladies, I have a calendar for the whole year! :D

We can start planning our exchanges ;) We won't know our partners right away but we can start stitching for the theme. We will only know our partners when the sign up period finishes, then I can randomly make the partners list. I think this will help a little to finish on time, we won't need to run to meet the deadlines, no reason to miss the posting date either ;)
Be aware::: No failing excuses!!! ;) hehehehe

#1 Easter Exchange
Sign up until: February 15th
Partners published: February 16th
Posting deadline: March 1st

#2 Blogversary Exchange » free theme
Sign up until: June 15th
Partners published: June 16th
Posting deadline: July 1st

#3 Halloween Exchange
Sign up until: September 15th
Partners published: September 16th
Posting deadline: October 1st

#4 Christmas Exchange
Sign up until: November 15th
Partners published: November 16th
Posting deadline: December 1st

To sign up:
Send an email to msherrylovers@gmail.com and let me know in which exchange you'd like to join! Please, add your blog address and also your home address info ;)

What to send:
1 handmade » you can finish as you want!!
+4 extra gifts » fabrics, buttons, ribbons, threads, any craft supply! Or you can add stationery like pens, notebooks, anything pretty and cute that will make you partner smile :)

Posting deadline:
We have dates but each destination makes a diference. For example, I'm from Portugal, if I'm sending for a partner in Europe I know one week is enough to arrive safely. But, if I send to Brazil I know I need 30 days or more!! (Brazil is particularly slow on post service, we need to post earlier than usual).
So, please, think about the time you need to post, specially on Christmas!! Christmas mail gets behind everywhere!! hehehe See where your exchange parcel needs to go and make sure you'll send it on time, even if it's not exactly the same date we have writen here ;)

Please, if someone gets sick, if anything major happens in your life and you can't finish your commitment with our exchanges, don't stress yourself! We are all humans, we can understand good reasons!! Just send an email to msherrylovers@gmail.com and let me know, we will find a solution.
Exchanges are for fun, if you're dealing with something major in your life, don't worry, just let us know! The worst thing is failing and not telling anything, just write an email, takes 2 minutes of your time :) We are all reasonable people and remember that stitchers are the best ;) eheheh

Any question? Feel free to comment here on this post :)

Anne said...

Hi Nia: I would love to join two exchanges. #2-Blogversary, and #4 - Christmas . Looking forward to these and I shall start soon on #2, to have it ready, and so much fun making a package together!! :)

Atelier Caseiro said...

I miss the swap, I have participated in that time, according to the commitments, deadlines are tight, but just with a pre-defined schedule, for sure will be more participatory. Very happy with this possibility.
What Nia said of the Post Office in my country, it is unfortunately true, the service is quite slow. It takes attention to the deadlines and when possible, it is good to post early.
Forgive the mistakes in the English language. Ana

Heather said...

Oooo all 4 please :-)
Will e- mail you my details.

Annette said...

How great you posted them all!!!
I'm going to think about which I will enter..
You will hear from me!!

Gislene Ellery said...

I'm still waitting for my parcel of the last exchange, but count on me for the #2 and #4 new exchanges!
I'm sure it will be really fun!

PrincessPolly said...

I would love to join the Easter - Number #1 exchange but do not have a blog; are the exchanges only open for bloggers/members of this group blog?

LittleStar07 said...

wow! great calendar plan!! will email you later... Thanks Nia!

But I would like to ask, is it the stitch item must b M.Sherry design?


♥ Nia said...

I'm taking notes!! I will update on the mais page here ;)

If I already have your address from previous exchanges, there's no need to send again :)

Gislene I won't forget you, I'm paying close attention to your exchange :)

PrincessPolly we have more friends on our group that don't have their own personal blog, but everyone should belong to the group. This way, all members can post their exchanges and say thanks to their partners ;)
If you'd like to join our group, it's very easy, just send me an email to msherrylovers@gmail.com and I will send you an invitation to join the blog. Then, you can enter and post any time! :)

Joey yes!! That's a 'must' here on the group heheeh All designs that we stitch and share here, all by Margaret Sherry. So, our exchange follows the same path, only MSherry designs :)

Musicwoman said...

Hi Nia,

that's a good idea of you with the calandar.

The easter one is already very close and as i'm not very found with easter, i will let that go. I would like to enter in the other 3 but i will have to take a closer look to the dates. And we still have time. But i will let you know soon!
