"I'm good with letting everyone choose their own. However, last year, next to our names we had a list of favorites - colors, themes, etc. I thought that was a good way to ensure the receiver liked the gift. Could we do that…"
Hi Linda, I am in the Charm Swap and Batik Swap with you. Just wanted to drop you a note to tell you that I lived in Garden Grove when I was in junior high and high school. Graduated from La Quinta High School. Moved from Garden Grove out to Murrieta, CA in 1977 with my hubby and three kids.
The medley Batiks is any thing you want there is a light and a dark so if you want me to pit you in it just let me know.
I had to do separate pages for the color groups but you can click on the right side under The Quilters Society Box where it says groups. It will take you into a group listing page. Always at the top of the screen you can always click on the MY PAGE which will take you right to your own page. Where ever your at that will always be the same.
I say your post and I still need you to post where your red strips are.
Linda Accept my friend request.It shows I requested your friends but you have not accepted. Up near the top of the page at the right there is your name in a box has Sign in, Mail, Alerts, Friends-Invite it should have a print in that says request= click on it and it will go to another screen where you can do an acceptance. I hope this helps.
You can also post any where and someone is bound to help you through.
You can always post your comments, its nice to let the rest of the members know what is going on as they are participants also. I am waiting for your red batik strips. Have you sent them? I ask the girls to let me know when they send them as we are having issues with our mailings.
Its nice to keep the whole group in the scoop. Many of the gals have to order batiks on line so as long as they notify and confirm with a post that they are waiting on a delivery or its been sent.
I now put a small star in front of the participants name in the color group when I receive their fabrics. That way the gals can see how the group is progressing. You can just go into the color group page and look through the lists to see how many are still in transit. If you forget what colors you asked to be in, it will show all that is in each color class.
For the website the best thing to do is just play around to figure out how to navigate. I'm not a wiz on the computer but I do get around. Trial and error. I find it will freeze up once in awhile, just shut down your computer and reboot.
Linda I need a response from you about your Red strips. If I don't hear from you by or on Wed. Dec. 19 I will assume that you are not participating. I wrote a message to you on Dec. 3rd and I have not heard back yet. Are you still with our group? Are you working very busily?
