I have no desire to keep my cross stich charts once I have finished stitching them and am happy to pass them on to another stitcher, who wants to stitch a chart themself, free of any charge.
Below is how FCAs work: FCAs can be posted any day/any time and last from minutes to days. You must have a US Mailing address to participate.
- To qualify, you must leave a comment on the FCA post with the name of the chart being offered for adoption for that flash challenge, NOT the designer name, to be eligible.
- Random pick will be made; I will email that person privately to let them know they have been chosen, edit the original FCA post to list who was chosen, and close the comments.
- The person chosen responds to my email with their mailing address. If you type your address in the email as it would appear on an envelope (name first line, street/po next line, city /state 2 letter code/zip on third line) so I can simply copy and paste to a label that would be much appreciated. If I don’t hear from you within a week, of sending you an email, I will pick a new recipient from the original FCA participants. Package may take a week or two or a bit longer if life is crazy to get mailed out.
- Do NOT use words like “win, free, giveaway” in your comment – that just brings in people looking for free stuff, not actual blog readers – and if you do you will be ineligible/comment deleted.
Simple rules right? If you have never left a comment on my blog before or have not left one in a long time, it will not immediately appear but will automatically be held until I go in and approve it as not spam. Never fear, I will approve any pending approval emails that have come in prior to the close of the challenge.
Updated to Add FAQ re “why doesn’t my comment show up”:
I always get emails asking why someone’s comment may not show up in the comment section for the Flast Chart Adoptions. Before doing the random number generator thing for FCAs, I make sure that any “pending approval” comments are approved. Your comment goes into “pending” if you have not commented on my blog before, or not in a long time, or if WordPress is just messing with you for some random reason. 🙂 I read all the comments and you are always welcome to leave a comment on FCA posts even in you are not actually interested in adopting the charts. When I go back to the comments to pick the adopters, I do delete all the comments that are from people not including the FCA info (but I have read all those comments and appreciate them) , I also delete the comments from people who don’t follow the FCA rules and there are always a couple even tho I reminder ever time to read the rules. So that’s how I get to my max number of participants to put in the RNG and let it do it’s thing to get the random number.
