About Exchanges
« on: July 02, 2015, 06:53:41 PM »
Hello Everyone,
I would like opinions on which ones to join first when it comes to the exchanges for new calligraphers/members?
I emailed Natascha of sisterofdreams requesting to join the birthday exchange. I would love to hear from her.
Please advice.
Thank you to all.

Hi Rosana,

It takes Natascha a few days to reply to send you the list for the birthday exchange.

Hi Rosana,
We have a list of all the "official" exchanges for the year. We have just sent out the lists for the Five Things About Me Exchange. So that exchange is now closed and people will be working on and mailing their exchanges.

The next exchange will be open the first week of August. This is the Favorite Book Exchange. I will post an announcement that the exchange is open for sign ups with a link to sign up. Once the sign up deadline arrives, I put together all the lists and email them out. People then work on their exchanges and mail before the deadline.

While we have an "official" exchange list, anyone can start an exchange at any time. They just have to be willing to organize and distribute. However, since our calendar has been very full this year, we haven't really had time for any extras.

I hope that helps!
Truly, Erica

I sent the invite :)
I get a couple of inquiries a week, so I wait until the end of the week and send the invitations to all of the new members at the same time :)

Thank you ladies for providing all these information....
Where do we find the invites? sorry, my question sounds silly!
does it go to our emails?
and lastly, what exactly happens at an exchange? my limited
knowledge of this is sending a card or note to someone in
a very nicely addressed envelope.....so if it's a bday exchange,
we send a birthday card. Do we make our own cards or use
store bought ones?

This link will answer your questions: I signed up for an Exchange...now what.

The birthday exchange is a little different but I'll let someone else answer that.  ;D
