Thread exchange anyone ?
I am wondering if anyone would be interested in joining in with a birthday thread exchange to start next year ?
The idea would be to send a stitched card and a couple of threads to all members who sign up , on their birthdays . I am opening it up for discussion etc now so there is plenty of time to get organised in case of January birthdays etc .
Due to the nature of trusting in this , I am also going to restrict joining up to people with regular blogs and/or those already well known in the blogging world , unless you have one of the above willing to vouch for you .
Please remember though , if this does go ahead , you are expected to carry through for the whole year and for everyones' birthdays . Anyone failing to do so , without a very good reason WILL be named and shamed. Sorry to have to put this , but it would be really unfair for someone to send out just until their own birthdays or something .
Without wishing to state the obvious , it is worth bearing in mind that lot of people will then have your address , so please think carefully before signing up if this could cause any problems .
I am also debating on whether to have just for UK , or worldwide , so any comments/ideas would be very much appreciated.
Also , would you prefer to state what colours you would like , or take pot luck ? Types of threads would also be up for discussion. I would not want to say just specialised threads in case of financial difficulties , but some people might want to send them , so personally I would just say whatever you want to send , and accept that you may get different ones in return.
Please take into account the cost of postage .
I would possibly open up another blog to showcase pics of cards received etc .
This is just an idea at the moment, so please feel free to put in your two pennorth worth . If I do decide to go ahead , I will post again with sign up details .
