RULE RECAP

YOU SHOULD HAVE YOUR PAL BY NOW
You should all have your pals by now. If you've not received an email yet from either myself or Donna telling you who your pal is , NOW IS THE TIME TO LET US KNOW We think we've got everyone though.


WHAT TO SEND

Your lace parcel should have about 1200yds laceweight yarn, a nice needle or BOUGHT pattern (not an internet freebie, even though there are some very nice ones out there) and a little treat from yourself (candy, stitch markers, handcream, whatever). Anything else is up to you, but consider this list to be a minimum.

WHEN TO SEND IT
This is a QUICK and DIRTY swap event (a technical term obviously). Your parcel should be in the Mail by 1 September 2006 - which means we should all have received something by mid September at the latest.

SEND YOUR HOST AN EMAIL (PICTURE PREFERABLE) OF YOUR PARCEL WHEN IT'S READY.
We want to showcase all the lovely pressies, and also we'd like to check the participants off the list as we go, and be prepared to angel anyone if we have to.


WHAT IF IT ALL GOES PEAR SHAPED?

We understand that life gets in the way sometimes.

If you find you can't keep your commitment we'd appreciate it if you could let us know as soon as you can. That's so if you pal bails on you, we'd like to be the first to know so we can decide what to do.


SEND ME AN ANGEL

Towards the end of August, if it looks like there are some lace swappers who may miss out on a gift, I'll be placing an emergency order from an online supplier in the US.

To save on postage costs, a volunteer from the US to take delivery of the yarn and then post it to me would be appreciated. You should have a paypal account so I can deposit the postage cost into your account. There will be no cost to yourself.
