Tahlia, I thought it would be nice if we all sent Jo a fabric postcard in August.  Should cheer her up after her surgery.  Hugs, Shelly

Hi Tahlia.me again.  If I go into Picassa (my pictures) I can send a picture but when I put in the address...."stitchinfingers,ning.com " it won't accept that address.  What will I type into the address?    Mary Wyn

I contacted Mary Corbett when I looked at the main page and she was the one who gave the rules for the whole group. She did answer me and told me that she had written to Kalona and that if she hadn't heard from her within 48 hours I was free to take over the administration of the swap. I haven't replied to her because I wanted to get the group's opinion if it was OK if I took over. It seems as though the majority who answered OK'd me, so now I will write back to Mary and tell her I am taking over and ask how to go about doing it (something you probably know since you are already in charge of some things). I wouldn't worry too much about getting permission because I am sure she already knows about the things you are in charge of. In my case I was asking her permission to take over the swap from Kalona because she just disappeared and stopped answering messages from anyone, so it was a special situation. Any help you can give me about running things would be welcome. I do want to write again to everyone in our group and let them know about the swap for the coming year and how it will be different than it was before because there will be directed things to do for some months. I will be doing a directed swap for January and will be giving out the directions after the holidays and after I get everyone signed up. It will be a lot of fun and will cost very little, if anything, because most of us already have the supplies for it. I also think that it is something that most of the members have never done. That is my hope anyway, to do things that are new and different.
