PostSubject: Need a Hostess   Tue Sep 22, 2009 7:29 pm

Ok, hands up, you know you want to host a swap! Now is your chance!

We need someone to host a mini quilt swap, like Betweens did only this one christmas themed. Easy to do, no posting out of blocks or anything, just collecting names, organising who swaps with who (most people use a random # generator online for that) and letting everyone know who their recipient is etc.

Can someone help out please? T'would be much appreciated Thumbup :D

I'm WHAT??? Did everyone else take a step back?

Ahhh, I'll be happy to do it. What's the cutoff date for signing up? What day must it get mailed in order to get there for Christmas? Are we going to post photos in the gallery or have a chat party? How big?

So far: Gimpy, memaw 4, me, betweens, golo, hummerlou, Anita M, Come on, the more, the merrier! gift2

lmao lmao I read it as you were saying yes to hosting, then I read your second comment "I'm WHAT??? Did everyone else take a step back? " and re-read your first post. Realised you were actually say "im in on the swap" but you were questioning hosting lmao

Thank you so much for being good natured and taking it on. I have to run laura to kinder, its dress up day and she is so excited then when I get back I will see what I can find out. Seeing as Deb just ran the last one she might be able to help out some with how to set it up etc? hug08 thanks Stella Hug

I would suggest starting a new post with the title of Mini Quilt xmas swap!! so that people are not afraid of the post title.. they may be thinking that we are still looking for a host...redmadder.. LOL I can picture us all lined up and when the question came out...we were smart enough to step back...LOL good one!!

So glad that you accepted with grace...if you have questions I would be sure to help.. but I am sure that you are capable...

The signup ending date and other plans can be laid out by our great hostess..it is up to you Stella what you would desire.. you have the power.. it is in your hands..

lets have a chat party around dec 15, definite date and time to be determined later.

Go on gwennie, join us, just one little xmas quilt, have you an orphan block you could make into a mini? Please join us, please!

I was thinking the sign up date was ages away being nov but then it doesnt hold us up. the theme is christmas so we can start making minis right now if we want, we just have to wait to find out who our recipient is!!! I cant decide what to do!!!!! dance
