Holiday Ornament Exchange

 



We will have our annual ornament exchange at our December meeting. To ensure the health and safety of members, the meeting will occur via Zoom so the swap will occur prior to the meeting.

Ornament Preparation:
Prepare any handmade (by you) winter-themed ornament. Package the ornament in a paper bag so that it cannot be seen. Do not include extras- just the ornament should be included.
Please include your name in the bag so that recipients will know who made the ornament!

Ornament Swapping
Place the bag with your ornament on the porch by 9am on Saturday, November 28. Swap fairies will text you when they have swapped out the bags. If you live remotely or don't feel you have a secure spot to leave the ornament, please indicate in the comments section below. Swap fairies will contact you prior and make special arrangements.

FAQ:
I live far away. Can I participate?
It depends on how far. England...sorry we can't budget that much travel money. Within 1.5 hours of McKinney? Sure! We would love for you to participate if you're a member of the guild!

I'm not a member. Can I participate?
We encourage you to join the guild! If you're in the McKinney/Plano/Allen area, please feel free to join the swap. If you live further out, we can check to see if there's a fairy who is heading your direction.

What if I sign up and don't finish my ornament?
Please let us know asap! You'll get an email on Friday, November 27 reminding you to put out your ornament. If you cannot put it out, please reply and let us know.

Can I open my ornament as soon as I get it?
I mean, sure, but it'll be more fun if you wait and open it at guild on Tuesday :)
