    Would you like?

    You may have noticed that we only have 25 members listed.

    This Group is down from the numbers signed up in previous years. The last two years we've had around 42 sign up however in those same years by the time gifts are to be mailed we were down to about 26 members. More dropped out between Jan to June then from July to December.

    I'm thinking we had less sign up because in the Group description I clarified a bit more how this is a serious commitment requiring 12 gifts throughout the year. (I did this because of the large number of resignations per year) However,I suspect that those who joined on this year gave it more thought to whether they could make that long term decision. I also suspect that we will remain at or very close to 25 members by the end of the year.

    With that thought in mind, would you like to get your Secret Santa name in early July? Granted one or two may require a change in their given names should we lose another one or two but then this had to occur last year too when we got several last minute people leave around Nov. It would not effect the large majority of members but it might effect one or two of you and we have no way of knowing which ones. It could happen regardless of whether we get names in Sept or July

    So would you want to take that chance that your name would change at the last minute in order to get your Secret Santa names earlier,say in July?

    (btw, I will still be asking that everyone send me a pic of what you did so far. I will probably want that check in for the end of June rather than in August just to see how people are doing with their schedules by mid year. I'll notify you a month before so don't worry about it at this point)

    I would love to have my SS name early. And if by chance that person would drop out for whatever reason it wouldn't really matter to much as I already have the gifts made at that point. It's not like you have to scramble and quick make something. The themes are really pretty much universal and the gift could go to really anyone. Sure we want to make the gift special to that person's likes but a flower is a flower, fall is fall, summer is summer, etc. Not sure I explained it right. Side Note: Do we send the extra gifts according to this year themes or just a gift suitable to auntiemurm.

      The extras I'm making are going to be one of the theme items. Especially if it's a new skill. I like to make a couple so i can work out construction techniques.

        I believe auntiemern said it didn't have to be theme related. Up to you. You might want to check her thread on this , I believe there is something there :-)

                Early if possible. It would be nice to know someone's "colors" when choosing fabrics.

                  Either way would be fine with me but knowing someone's preferences on colors, etc. would make it easier to personalize the gifts earlier in the year.

                    I would like to know early also. I love getting it early to maybe personalize it a little more.

                      I think early is a good idea. lol, that way if I've made something in a "I hate ____" I have time to fix it!

                        I would like to have my SS name early. I think it would be nice to be able to think of that person while sewing....having a face to picture.

                              Yay! More time to personalize and pick appropriate colors. I figure if some of the items I made early in the year just aren't going to be suitable once I receive my name, those can be the "extras" for emergency gifts.

                              Secret Santa 2018

                              About this Group

                              We had a lot of fun with the Secret Santa 2017 group last year. A lot of happy people received beautiful handmade gifts from their Secret Santa's. Each person made and received 12 gifts at Christmas that were made throughout the year, one a month based on a given theme. We learned new things, challenged our skills in a non stressful way and got "down and dirty" creative. Plus at the end of the year we get 12 great gifts for Christmas!

                              This group is a commitment as you are signing on to create 12 gifts during the year. They are smaller projects so any challenge is not overly difficult. You also, twice a year, get to swap out the named theme for one of your own choosing. You may also purchase rather then handmake 3 items during the year.

                              If you would like to join please "subscribe", "join". Read the Rules in the discussion section and sign. You will receive a questionaire from the moderator that helps her match you up with your Secret Santa recipient.
