2020 Quarantine Exchange
« on: March 15, 2020, 06:02:28 PM »
SIGN UPS ARE NOW CLOSED.

With all that is happening across the globe, most of our members (if not yet experiencing a quarantine of some sort) may do so in the coming weeks. A very serious topic, this is an opportunity to document what is happening for future generations in our own way. Whether it is to share some levity, offer solace, inspire or reassure, this exchange is to address the issues we are facing in a positive, respectful way.

NOTE:
  • If you did not complete a past exchange you signed up for, you cannot participate.
  • If you will be busy and cannot meet your obligation, please do not sign up. It is not OK to think, "Life happens" and not fulfill your obligation. It is OK if circumstances require you to send your exchanges late, however, you will still not be able to participate in an exchange until yours are sent.
  • You must be a registered, activated member and you must have made at least one post, introductory or otherwise, in order to participate.
   
Sign up deadline: Wed, March 25th, 2020
Postmark deadline: Mon, April 13th, 2020


YOU MUST SIGN UP VIA THE FORM ABOVE OR YOU WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED SIGNED UP. (Form closed.)

As always, the following guidelines apply:

1. Calligraphy should be used on both your exchange insert and envelope.
2. You will send a card to every member on your list (typically 7-9 members).
3. Must be related to the theme.
4. All skill levels welcome!
5. If you end up not being able to participate, please contact me ASAP. If you don't send your cards after the list has gone out, you will not be able to participate in the next exchange.
6. You must sign up before the deadline. No late sign ups.
7. HAVE FUN!

With social distancing and self-isolation, what a better way to spend some time than to lift a fellow calligraphers spirits! I'm all in  :)

Greetings Quarantine Exchange participants,
For all of you who received a card from me that was blank on one side (that's almost everyone) or have yet to receive a card, not to worry, I have made new cards and will enclose each in an envelope addressed to you, and hopefully send them out today.
The only cards that made it through intact, it seems, were the ones within the distribution area of the Atlanta postal distribution center (there are 21 such centers around the country). All the rest went through a second distribution center (the closest one to you), and were ripped apart in the second center. Rough business.
