Package Pal FAQ
What is PP? By signing up for Package Pals, you are committing to send one crafty package to another crafty person within the month.
When does PP happen? Package Pals happens 4-ish times a year on C.R.A.F.T. Sign ups will happen at the end of the month… check back frequently to find out when it’s happening!
Do I have to have a blog to participate in PP? No.
How many PP’s get to participate? 100 (Sign up quick!)
Who can sign up for PP? Anyone! There is a place on the sign up form to let me know if you want a PP in the USA or if you are open to having an international PP. I do my best pair people up in the same country.
How do I sign up? Sign ups happen at the end of the month (i.e. end of January for February PP). Look for the sign up post on C.R.A.F.T. and fill out the form in the post.
How does the partner pairing work? You are paired with someone who is also paired with you (i.e. Jamie is paired with Kelley, Kelley is paired with Jamie). I try my best to pair partners based on interest… someone who wants to learn to crochet with some one who loves to crochet.
What should I send to my package pal? Something crafty! It could be a craft you made, a craft kit that you put together, or even fun crafting supplies (Lace Tape, fabric painters, or a canvas bag). I left it so open ended because I don’t want to hinder creativity!
