Hi all, a few little items of house keeping!
Not all the emails have gone out yet. We are four very busy ladies with over 200 emails to send individually. We are doing our best. I will post here and on Instagram when they have all gone out. That should be by tomorrow morning. If you don't have an email and you think you should, please wait until I have said they are all sent and then contact me and we will try and sort it out.
When you do get your email, please read it very carefully, In particular please pay attention to the fact that this is a SECRET swap. That means you don't contact the person you are making for and tell them what you're making. That spoils the surprise and causes us to have to rearrange things! Also the person you are making for is NOT making for you, someone else secret is, so please don't contact the person you are making for and tell them what to make for you! (Phew!)
There has been a lot of concern over the fact that some swappers don't have Instagram accounts. While I realise that for those of us on Instagram the world revolves around it, there are those who don't have an account (poor souls!) That's why we have asked people to give their preferences so that you can still know what they will like when you make them something.
Some people have private accounts. It's not fair to ask them to make their accounts public, and so instead we will send out all the IG handles within each hive so that each hive can follow each other, the private accounts will know who is friending them and if we all friend each other then no one will know whose swap partner is whose. That will be done asap, with the proviso that we are four busy people who are doing our best.... etc.
If you are on Instagram don't forget that your partner may be stalking you. Post some pics of which quilts you like or fabrics or colour mosaics so they can see. Make sure to tag #littlequiltsswap and your hive (#hivesarah #hivejules #hivebelle #hiveamy) so that people following can see.
Ok that's it, those waiting for their emails hang in there it won't be long. Thanks
