I'm not sure I understand how many a person would have to make.

Someone help a newbie out? Not sure how to go about signing up - do we just send an email to the coordinator? Thanks!

Yes, that's all there is to it.

You should get a confirmation in reply.

I read that. so...if 50 people sign up then do you make 50?

Yep. The first year I did it I had to make 126. Another year only 65 or so...

If you haven't done it, it's really worth it to push yourself a bit creatively. I didn't participate last year but helped with sorting, and I have to say, I was drooling over every example so much that the sort team voted to give me a set, which I treasure.

I saw that a lot of you are new to the magless exchange so I thought I'd post some links to some of the past magless. I've learned so much from these including, start early!

It would be helpful if this list, and updates, were pinned to the top of the thread. I really didn't know how many to make until I found this.

Jennifer has offered to compile the How-Tos for the 2013 Magless. I sent all the participants an email with instructions & Jennifer's email address. If you are a participant this year and did not receive the email from me with the instructions let me know. (I fear some went into spam folders). :-)
It's getting close to Magless Christmas! Yippee!

Hi everyone.

I regretfully have to withdraw from this year’s exchange. :( I caught a really nasty bug right after the first of the year and just can’t seem to get back on my feet. :-& I know there is still almost 5 weeks left before the due date but I can’t see me feeling well enough to be able to finish on time. Anyone that has been doing this from the beginning knows how much I love participating in this exchange and that I would never drop out if I thought there was any way I could still bust butt to stay involved. I’ll try to make it up to people next year with something extra special.

Again, my deepest apologies.

Oh Melodie,
That's to bad. We hate to loose you. So how about if we leave your name on the list till March in case you get a burst of energy. I hope you feel better!

Thanks Susan,

I'll try but I can't promise anything. I generally spend 3-4 weeks on the lampworked components alone. I'll see if I can maybe come up with something a little less detailed than I had planned for this year. I won't have a lot of fusing tips to pass on though.

My plan is to finish up during this long weekend. I have the first small batch (to test the idea) completed and the remainder about 1/3 of the way.
