My face is red!
Edited to change mailing deadline from two months to one month ago - obviously I can't count (which may be why I seem to have to frog a lot lately)! We do allow seven weeks before assuming an exchange is MIA - and I apologize for my error.
Thanks to all who pointed this silly mistake out to me.
From our Exchange Guidelines:
"If you do not fulfill your commitment or make other arrangements with me on an exchange, you will not be allowed to participate in another exchange until your previous commitment is met."
"8. If your item goes missing in the mail you will be asked to send another. If you cannot do this you will need to inform one of the mods. An item will be considered missing if it has not been received within 7 weeks of the send out date."
"9. Failure to complete an exchange in a satisfactory manner is grounds for immediate blacklisting."
I am very disturbed that we have four members who have not yet received a Needle Book. The mailing deadline was 2 November 2009 - that's a month ago!
And, we have quite a few Humbugs unaccounted for, as well.
If I've missed seeing a post and my records are incorrect - shame on me! email me and I'll joyfully fix my error.
If you haven't posted that you've sent or received an exchange - shame on you!
I've one Needle Book nearly completed to angel one member soon - and while I don't mind in the least doing so - and other members have been stitching angels in the past, as well - it should not be necessary!
Mail does get lost or misdirected - I've certainly had that happen to me in the past. It does seem to me that if it happens - we should make every effort to make it right.
What do you think?
