Shayla - I hope you are well? I am one of your send to partners in the Crazy Afghan Squares 2 swap and have yet to receive anything from you. I've tried to contact you via Swapbot a couple of times but had no response...I hope everything is ok?
Please get in touch.

Sherry - if you don't send me the stitch markers from the stitch marker swap that I hosted back in December (they had to be mailed by Dec 15th), and it`s February 18th right now, then I am recommending to SP10 that you do NOT follow through with swaps. It seems like you are not following through with your swaps on swap-bot either - according to Wendy`s comment above. I just want to warn you in advance, since you DO NOT respond to emails, and you ignore people. This is not a way to handle yourself. I will never allow you to participate in a future stitch marker swap that I host, and if I ever see you participating in something I am - I will let the hostess know that you do not follow through.

Have a nice day.

I have mailed every swap that I have been involved in. There are times when mail is late or even lost. I am rather tired of being accused of not sending things when I have, and the comments about ignoring emails. I read ALL my email, and answer if necessary. This is an imperfect world and I believe it's time that people realize that. This "SWAP" thing was fun for awhile, but people are just getting too "naggy" about everything. Mistakes are made, things are lost. There are several swaps that I have not received, but I am not going to hunt down those people and demand that they send me something. I appreciate the fact that if you sign up, you send, and that's what I've done. I will be dropping from all future swaps, this is all just a waste of my time.

Shayla, I sent you numerous emails through swapbot and directly and I never got a reply. I would have been perfectly happy if you had responded and said that you had sent as I realise that things do go missing or that people are unable to send for whatever reason. However, when I received no response and then when several other people in the same swap say they have not received anything either you can see why I would get suspicious. As you say that you yourself have been burnt on a swap so you know how disappointing it is to put a package together and then not receive anything in return.
All I was asking for was a quick note to let me know what had happened but I got nothing.
