    Checking up on Newbies!!

    Sooooo, I was thinking yesterday......how are you "New To Secret Santa" people doing??

    Is it all starting to make sense to you?? Any questions now that we're midway through the year? What do you like or dislike so far? Is there anything you are finding easy or difficult? Yes Oldbies can answer this too if you'd like :-)

    I'm so thankful I started early, with three months hiatus from my machines. I'm glad to be back! Thinking about something for the paper piecing now.

      I’m having fun with this. It’s challenging to come up with something to match the theme & hopefully make something my secret Santa will like. Think I should have made more while it was cold, summer seems to be getting in the way of my one a month plan.

        I’m still worried about the types of projects to make. I’ve gotten my quota for June finished, but now to finish out the year. Soooo if I get a gift with the month “title”, but didn’t make it myself, is that still “legal”.???? If I include a stitched by me gift WITH the bought gift is that legal???? Or is everything to be made with the monthly theme?? I know I can use the alternate ideas, and can purchase 2 or 3 things.. I’m just having trouble with some of the themes and getting ideas for those. Oh the challenges life give us!!! But I will keep stitching!!!

          Yes you can also purchase a gift that falls within the perimeters of a monthly theme. I believe purchased gifts can't exceed three. You can also gift something that was not homemade by you but someone else, as long as it's home made. It's nice if you can mention who actually "made" it. And yes you can include a bought gift along with a stitched by me gift, you've still fulfilled a homemade gift for that month.

          Deeceer, which month themes to you need some ideas for? We can add some more ideas for you here.

            I am a newbie and I am enjoying making the gifts. I have bought 2 of the months gifts as I didn't know what to do for that particular theme. I think I struggled with wondering what to make and will the person receiving the gift actually like and want to use what I make.

              Stitchedinlove, Last year was my first year. I had the same worries. Everyone has been so gracious. We all know the time and effort involved and appreciate our special surprises and the one that gives them as well.

              Secret Santa 2019

              About this Group

              Membership is now closed for 2019.

              We had a lot of fun with the Secret Santa 2018 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 can be smaller projects so any challenge is not overly difficult. Choose whatever difficulty you are comfortable with. You may also, twice a year, swap out the named theme for one of your own choosing. You may also purchase rather than hand make 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 mod
