Hi everybody!
After one year of rest it is time to sign up for yet another Birthday Club.

It is the goal of this club to share maille with each other while celebrating birthdays. This is open to all MAIL members from beginning to experts. This year we will do our best, just like years past, to get you as many gifts as you give, but please understand if that does not occur and know that everybody should receive at least one birthday gift. We have people spread all over the world and at times life throws us curves that we cannot control.

If you would like to participate this year please send the following information to me (Catweazle) in a PM and post in this thread that you are going to participate.

Information to send:
a. MAIL Name
b. Name
c. Address (in the way it has to be put down on the adress-field of a letter)
d. Alternate form of communication (e-mail) just in case PM’s aren’t answered
e. Gender
f. Birthday
g. Bracelet Size (mm or in)
h. Necklace Size (mm or in)
i. Choker Size (Yes/No) / (mm or in)
j. Earrings (Yes/No)
k. Finger Ring Size
l. Allergies
m. Favorite Colors
n. Favorite Metals
o. Interests or other information to help creating your gift easier
p. If you can send overseas (Yes/No)
q. If you can be an Emergency Gifter [2-4 weeks notice] (Yes/No)
r. If you want more than one partner (Yes/No)


Send Overseas – We have members from all over the world participate and it can be fun to send and receive things from other countries. If you feel you are able to send things around the world we are appreciative of this an it allows more people to participate. If you are not able to send overseas don’t worry, even if you are in Europe, we want you to participate and we will find you a partner that will work out best for you.

Emergency Gifter – Emergency gifters are some of the most important people and if you can put together a gift in a couple of weeks your skills will be greatly appreciated. Life throws us problems all the times and if you can help out it is appreciated. We will always try to give at least 2 weeks notice for an emergency gifter.

More than one Partner – Iti is, of course, possible to get more than one partner. It depends on the number of participants, so don't worry if you get only one partner.

After you get a gift all we ask is that you post in the thread that you received it and a photo is also greatly appreciated so we can all Ooo and aahhh over what you got as well.

Finally - Communication is the key to success of this club. Last time many people ran into problems, but let us know and we were either able to change things for them or delay the sending to help them out. When people just fall off the grid it really puts stress on the coordinators. So please just send us a PM so we don’t have to use the Alternate form of communication and contact you that way.

Wondering if there is a suggested monetary limit (which may be a bit tricky to work out with people worldwide using different currencies)?

Hey Boss! Smile


Do you want us to post pictures of what we get for our birthday here or will there be a different thread?


I can't wait to see what people will do this year.

Being the past person running it I would say that there is no monetary limit it is what ever you would like to spend. As an example, last time I got a set of modified pliers from my partner. If you want to get an idea you can always check out the past Birthday Club threads to get ideas if you would like to get an idea of what had been done in the past.

I just sent him a PM yesterday, but I truthfully do not know if it is active any more or when the last time he has been around is.

Whether the club is functioning or not, I sent my recipient his gift 10 days ago, and do hope he has received it (since I was able to post it while in his home country, which is a long way away from my own).
