Hello Christmas Swappers!
Sign-ups are officially closed! I know that we do not yet have our full complement of 100 members listed in the sidebar. Kasia has asked me to let all of you know that she has not been able to get much access to her e-mail while she has been traveling and she knows that there are several requests in her inbox. She tells me that she will be able to get to those requests in about 8 days or so. So, if you are one of those people who has sent your request to Kasia, please be patient, she'll get to you just as soon as she can :) It's for that reason that we've closed the sign-ups a bit early. We know there are 100 members counting those that are still to be signed up, so to be fair to the ones who are still waiting for their invites, we are trying to preserve their place in "line" before signing up anyone else.
In addition, I know some of you have had some difficulty accepting your invites to post, so I am extending the deadline to accept your invites to Midnight Friday the 24th of August. I will resend all the invites as well. Please - if you know you have been accepted as a member and have not received an invite, let me know! We want you to be able to join in on the fun :) And if you are having any problems at all in accepting your invitation to post, please e-mail me so we can try to fix the problem.
One last thing. I hate to be thinking about this, but occasionally someone signs up for a swap and does not follow through on sending a package to their swap partner. We could really use a few people to volunteer as "angels" to fill in for someone whose swap partner has flaked out. Anyone willing to be an angel, and we thank you *so* much in advance!, please send me an e-mail (knittymugginsATyahooDOTcom) and let me know. We would really appreciate it!!
Also, I know a lot of you have been wondering about the questionnaire. Yes, there will be one! And it will be fun! But it won't be posted until the swap officially starts on or around September 1. So just a little more patience and the fun will start! Thanks for sticking with us and we look forward to kicking off the holiday season right with all of our new friends :)
Happy knitting everyone!
