Round 4 Summer Swap Obligations and Commitments

Please read these carefully before signing up.

• This is a UK only swap. You must be living in the UK with a valid address (not P.O. Box) to send/received packages.

• The swap is scheduled to take place from May to July 2009. Sign-ups open May 15th and will be open for two weeks. Matches go out by early June. Packages must be received by July 31st.

• This is a secret swap. Take a moment to create an anonymous email so you don’t accidentally give away your identity. Also make sure that when you send emails your real name does not come up. If you would like to send a test email to us at to check, we will email you back and let you know.

• This round is a Ravelry-based swap. You do need to be on Ravelry to join the UK Swap Round 4.

• It is not necessary to have a blog - but if you do then make sure it is linked in your Ravelry profile page. This is a great way for your spoiler to get to know you.

• Because blogs are not required, an anonymous email IS required. You will need to provide the email for sign-ups so head on over to any email program and create an email that doesn’t give away who you are!

• Keep in contact with your partner. Contact your downstream pal at least once a week. You can send them an email, an ecard, or comment on their blog. Remember to stay anonymous! Keeping who you are a secret is the most fun.

• You will be expected to post to the Ravelry group once a week too. This way the hosts can keep track of everyone as well.

• You have over a month (after matches are received) to put together a great package suited to your pal’s tastes and preferences.

• There will be games and discussion topics during the swap. These are optional, but the more people that play, the more fun we all can have. There will be prizes. Hopefully there will be something for everyone!
