Many of the more detailed knitting events and swaps are asking for a small donation to go towards the hosting fees and such. But, what we ask of our participants is that each of you donate a small knitted or Harry Potter related item to be used in the inevitable angel kits that Deputy Headmistress Neila puts together at the end of the swap. We also use items for all the contests and trivia games that take place during the swap.
If you are not able to donate do not fret! That doesn't mean that you will not be able to participate. We are simply willing to take what we can get. If you are able to donate - great! If not that is okay too.
Planning your purchases
This swap is going to take place during one of the most expensive times of the year. That means that we are going to be a little bit tougher on making sure that people have planned out their purchases for their kits. Waiting until the last minute is not acceptable, especially since the last minute is right before Thanksgiving and Christmas. If you do not think that you'll be able to follow through with getting your kit mailed before the deadline, please do not join in this swap. If you are in 3 other swaps at the same time, please, please do not join this swap. We need to make sure that every participant will be treated with respect and that they will get as well as give.
