Secret Santa

We will have all year to prepare packages for our Secret Santa quilter. Tutorials for gift item ideas will be posted. We can share photos of items we've made or ideas for gifts. Share if there is a fabulous sale going on so we can take advantage of sale prices to purchase gifts. We will fill a medium Priority Mail box with lovely and fun gift items for that special Secret Santa quilter. Come join us!

I think I've got it now.  Thanks.

Yes, Mary you will send only 1 package on a designated date in December. The only thing you have to be secretive about is the name you will be given on June 1. You are more than welcome to share some of the gifts you make or purchase to give others ideas as long as you don't reveal who your person is. But, of course, you won't know who it is until June 1. You may start gathering gifts now, however.

We mail just one package??  Or be secretive all year??

Mary to clear up your fuzziness...

I am accepting members until May 15, 2016. All questionnaires must be turned in by May 15, 2015. On June 1, 2016 everyone will get the name and guestionnaire of their person they will be Secret Santa to.

In the meantime, you may if you wish start making or buying or collecting gifts for your person. Don't forget they can be small as you only have to fill a medium priority mail package. You are not limited to that however.

I have started a discussion for tutorials. The first being a small angel doll made from white yarn...very easy. They make cute ornaments or decorations  on packages.  Anyone is welcome to post a tutorial. Also, feel welcome to post photos of anything that you make to share with others.  I have no problem with posting a tutorial that you have scanned from a magazine as long as you give credit where credit is due.

I have received completed questionnaires back from Ginny, Mary, and Wilma.

I filled out my questionnaire also.  Fun as it made me think about how to answer those many, many questions.  Should be fun.

Comment by Mary Moore on January 24, 2016 at 1:15pm

I did it!  I sent in my questionnaire.  Feeling fuzzy about how it all works.

Comment by Beth A. North on December 31, 2015 at 5:45pm

This will be fun to work on all year long.

Signups for the MQP Secret Santa 2016 program will run from January 1, 2016 until May 15, 2016. All questionnaires must be turned in no later than May 15, 2016 to be included in the 2016 Secret Santa group. You will receive your Secret Santa the beginning of June 2016.

 

Your Secret Santa gifts must fit into a medium Priority Mail box. All fabrics must be quilt store quality and at least 1 yard. There must be at least one hand made item included. You have all year to make/buy items for your Secret Santa although you will not receive your Secret Santa’s name until June. Take advantage of sales on notions, fabric, etc. There will not be a dollar limit. What you spend is up to you. How much you make is up to you. Just remember everyone wants to receive a nice Secret Santa package as much as you do.

 

Each month I will post a tutorial for a gift item you could make for your Secret Santa. Some gift ideas are a pair of pillow cases, an apron, table runner, mug rug, candle mat, bucket made from scraps, needle book, etc. Most will cost little because they will be made from your scrap basket. Anyone is welcome to post a tutorial for a gift item they want to share.

 

Instructions for shipping packages will come in the fall as we get closer to December.

 

Anyone interested in signing up for the Secret Santa 2016 group or has questions, please send me a private message or an email to scrapquilter1950@roadrunner.com, and I will forward the questionnaire to you. Please put “Secret Santa” in the subject line.
