I am feeling a little sad.
Its because this month, I have had cause to suspend 2 members for failing to meet their swap obligations.
I understand that if you are ill unexpectedly you may not be able to fulfill your swaps, but please please please communicate with me or your member if this is the case. Likewise I need to know if you are moving house, going on holidays or just to busy to swap in any month. It just gives me the opportunity to assign a new partner.
There is nothing more upsetting for your partner to take the time to make a lovely block, pack it and post it off to you - often with a few extra goodies and then wait and wait and get nothing in return, not even an email to say that the gift has arrived.
Remember that we all have joined this group with the onus on friendship and sharing so please remember this. Maybe all members have to take the swappers pledge.
I also have a few members on hand to do an extra swap when someone gets let down like this (as I cant do it all), but am hoping for a few more offering to help when needed. So if you would like to do an extra swap on some occasions please let me know, I like to share this around and not lean in the same people every month.
Thanks for understanding. Sue xx
