You know you've been waiting for this... it's time for our annual
Carve-a-Hitty Witch Swap! 

Must be a member of Yahoo Hittygirls group.

#### You must put  your full name, address,  and email
into the Swapper's Database at Hittygirls at Yahoogroups to be included in the swap.  

If you sign up without this info, sorry, but you will not be added to the swap list until you do.

This is a 'complete the swap and get a partner on the due date' swap.
You are expected to tell your swap leader when you are finished.  
You can use the link below to notify your swap leader. 

If you forget to let the swap leader know, then you may not receive a partner.
Swap leaders have a lot of swap responsibilities, so please include all required information.

The swap leader will make several updates on the Hittygirls at yahoogroups club list until the swap deadline.  
Always check it to see if your name is there and the info is correct!

We love to see your photos--so please make sure to add your pictures to the proper swap album at yahoogroups after you get your swap.  MAKE SURE to add the to and from, so we can put that under your picture.
 It's always a good idea to try to take some photos before you send
your swap, just in case your partner doesn't have camera capabilities!  

When sending a swap package, you will want to be careful about choosing the right Confirmation to use on your package.  We recommend using always Delivery Confirmation.  Delivery Confirmation is the least expensive.  If you buy postage online it is automatically included for a reduced price. If you get your postage at the PO, you need to get the little green from.  This tracks the package, and confirms it was left at the address, but requires no signature.  The link below will explain what it is, what it does, and what it looks like.  The best thing about Delivery Confirmation is that it tracks the package, and confirms it was delivered.

Signature Confirmation requires a person to be present to sign for the package.  This can be a hassle, especially in rural areas where mail is delivered to a rural mailbox.  The link below will explain what it is, what it does, and what it looks like.  This would be useful if the item you are shipping is valuable.

And remember--when you get your swap, let your partner know
 with a big Hitty Hug and a Heartfelt Thanks!

Partners will be assigned on the 18th, and Hitty should be in the post by Monday, October 19 to reach her destination in time for Trick-or-Treating in her new neighborhood.

You will be carving a full sized Hitty from basswood (or your choice of another wood)
 and dressing her up as a witch. You may use elastic or traditional pegged jointing. 
You will carve and dress your Hitty as a witch yourself, not just buy one and paint her.  He-he-he!
Be sure you tell your swap leader you have finished via email  (Happy), and she will be assign someone to whom you will send your Hitty Witch (and receive another back in return).
Remember: Your Hitty is to be carved as a regular Hitty. Do not carve a witch face. Do not paint her green. You may, however, stripe her socks if you wish. She should be a Hitty dressed up as a witch for Halloween. She may be elastic jointed or regular jointed.

Happy Carving.
