Perpetual Exchange 2024 - Info & Sign Up
« on: April 30, 2024, 06:55:07 PM »
OK folks, I knew I wouldn’t last long without an exchange! Since we generally have the same calligrafriends signing up for exchanges, I came up with this idea to do a “Perpetual Exchange.” Here’s how it works:

  • You sign up to be on the list to participate in all the listed exchanges. For 2024, that means 4 more exchanges.
  • You put the deadline dates on your calendar and send your exchanges by the deadline.
  • I will also post a reminder/opt out post for every exchange.
  • If you cannot participate for that particular exchange, you will need to reply to the specific exchange post with an opt out message by the Opt Out date listed. (You will still be signed up for all other exchanges.)

IMPORTANT: Everyone will be responsible for checking the post to see if anyone has opted out prior to doing/mailing their exchanges.

This will significantly reduce my administrative time and emails. Newcomers are welcome to join after 5 posts to the forum.

Sign Ups are now closed.

Deadline to join is May 15, 2024 so I will have time to put the list together and send to everyone. I would like to only have one list so keep in mind, the list may be a little bigger than past exchanges but if at any time more than 16 are in the group, I will split the list.

Exchanges 2024

Summer Nights
– what do summer nights mean to you? Walks in the moonlight, camping out in the woods, star gazing, ghost stories by campfire?
Opt out by: May 29, 2024
PostMark Date: June 20, 2024

Calligraphic Book Club – what is your favorite calligraphy or lettering book? What do you like about it? Share a mini-book review or project from the book and/or an envelope using one of the hands/techniques taught in the book.
Opt out by: July 29, 2024
PostMark Date: August 26, 2024

NOTE:
  • If you do not complete your exchange and you didn’t opt out, you will be removed from the current year’s perpetual list. Future participation will be considered.
  • You must be a registered, active member, with at least 5 posts (for new members, current members are grandfathered if they have participated in at least one past exchange).
  • Calligraphy should be used on both your exchange insert and envelope.
  • All skill levels welcome!
  • HAVE FUN!
