    2018 Secret Santa Exchange

    2018 Secret Santa Exchange

    I will be the host of Secret Santa

    This is my forth time doing it, so I hope all goes well. If there are any questions please shoot me a PM.

    Is there any changes I can make that would encourage more people to sign up I'm open to suggestions? Let's make it an exciting holiday, knowing that we each will be receiving a homemade gift!!!

    Reading through the past couple of year's thread, it looks like everyone who participated really had a great time. I am really looking forward to this and being part of sharing the holiday spirit with other Forum members, I'm striving for a large turn out so I'm hoping all of you will help me to reach this goal.

    The Secret Santa will work similar to last year.Since everyone enjoyed it, it seemed reasonable to keep things similar, with one additional twist. So here's the scoop:

    I had several comments regarding cost limit, so lets have 2 groups so everyone who wants to participate can. You can chose to make a $10 or $20 gift.

    Registration:
    If you wish to participate, simply send me an email. Make sure you include the following:

    Full name
    Board "nickname"
    Mailing address
    Gift cost group $10 or $20

    My Email address is: david71372@yahoo.com

    What to make:

    You can make whatever you want to share. Many people will post pics of gifts sent/received to the Forum, so try to keep at least a significant portion of the gift cut from a scrollsaw.

    Cost Limit:

    Depending on the group you pick, the only rule is that you spend as close to either $10.00 or $20.00 on materials for the project. The project might be something you made in an hour or something you worked on for much longer. As we all know, the real point is in the giving, so just send something which you think will bring some cheer.

    Some people will get gifts more involved than the ones they sent, but that is inevitable and is okay. Nobody should feel guilty either way. Just make something nice and have fun! The price limit just helps to keep things close.

    * I will also do the selection so that the person you are making for is not necessarily the person you will receive from.

    Selection of Secret Santas:

    After registrations are all in, I will have a random drawing to assign Secret Santas, so that each person gives one gift to one other person and receives one gift as well.

    After selections are made, I will PM each participant to arrange the exchange.

    Mailing your Gift:

    I will supply you with the address you need. You may mail your gift any time after it is made, and the recipient may open it, or save it for the Holidays, if they wish.

    Posting of Pictures:

    To coin a phrase commonly used in the 'off Topic' forum, "We love pictures!" Please feel free to post pictures in this thread of the gift you received and, if known, maybe who made it for you.

    Deadline Dates:

    Regular Registration Deadline: November 10

    After this deadline, I will hold the random drawing and send everyone their matches.


    Get your saws Going!!!

    Quartz you are absolutely right about the need for a good blade and proper tuning of the saw. I thought the price was a lot cheaper than I expected. Only nine ornaments
