1. Magnets without Magnets - magnets
should be fused, no sharp edges, please. Do not glue metal magnets
to your magnets; like last year these will be maglesses.
2. Size - roughly 2x2 inches or smaller, any shape.
They do not have to be square.
3. Number of Participants - 125. A waiting list is
being kept. Please let Charlie know ASAP if you can't participate.
We understand the unexpected happens, and others would like to join if
spaces open up.
4. Number of Magnets - each participant must make the full
number of magnets - 125. Please make every effort to send in the full
complement of maglesses, as failure to do so will mean that some people
won't be getting one of yours in return. This will lead to endless
pleading for extras.
5. Deadline - the due date is
February 13, 2004. Magnets received after that date will
be returned! Magnet ship out date is scheduled to be February 14th,
6. Writing Assignment (voluntary) - write a couple of short
phrases about your technique(s), once you know what they are, and email
them to Charlie, or include the writeup in your box.
7. Packing - Please stick a small, removable label with
your name and number onto the back of your magnets, and place each one in
a small ziplock. Bubble wrap can be placed between layers of
magnets. No peanuts! Click here
for detailed packing instructions, for ziplock suppliers, and more about
8. Shipping to the Coordinators - Important:
Email Charlie privately at firstname.lastname@example.org
for up-to-date shipping information and the shipping address, or use the
magless board at http://www.warmglass.com/phpBB/viewforum.php?f=11that has been
set up for this purpose.
We strongly recommend you pay for tracking, if your shipper does not
automatically do it.
Please include a completed USPS
Priority Mail label and delivery confirmation and insurance forms, plus a
check for postage - cost to be determined but we'd like to set one fee for
all US participants. This will also make it a lot easier for the sorters
and mailers, speeding up return delivery.
9. Shipping Back to You - return shipping will be by USPS
Priority Mail, tracked and insured. We'll work out best shipping
methods individually with those of you outside of the US. A
participant list with email addressees, Web or photo sites and techniques
will be included in your box of magless treasures.
10. What's Going On? - Please check your email and the
special magnet board at http://www.warmglass.com/phpBB/viewforum.php?f=11
for the latest
information. It's a good idea to check the magnet board now and then.
It is possible to set up your Preferences to email you every post to the
11. Email questions (and your technique phrases) to charlie at email@example.com
12. Don't forget to enjoy yourselves. Use the opportunity to
experiment and branch out using a new technique.
**** Have to drop out? Let
Charlie know asap since we have a waiting list. ****
Test in small quantities, just a couple of magnets, until you have the
effect you want.
Unless they are unusually thick, you can speed up your schedules since the
pieces are so small.
Ask for help on the Warmglass magless board or email someone.
Have fun; this is not an art show or contest. Your magnets will find
good, appreciative homes.
