More details will be posted as necessary on the Community Projects Bulletin Board.

The 2009 coordinator will be Celyn Collins. 


Celyn may be contacted by sending an email to celyn@warmglass.com


Key dates:


Entry signup will end when the exchange is full.  Spaces still available!
Receipt of Entry Fee:  November 30, 2008 or 10 days after signup.  If not received by this date, an alternate will be contacted to take your place.
Receipt of Magless: February 20, 2008  Your magnets must be received by this date!

Return of sorted magnets: Maglesses will be shipped out the first week in March.


1)  If you missed the signup, but are still interested in participating, please contact the coordinator to see if you can be added as an alternate.


2) Entry Fee: $25, non-refundable. This will be collected after your entry has been accepted and is due by November 30th, 2008.   The fee covers return shipping costs (you are responsible for shipping completed magnets to the coordinator).  At this time we do not expect an adjustment for International shipments to be necessary. Once you are notified that your entry has been accepted, you will be asked for a check or credit card information to cover the entry fee. Receipt of the entry fee by the deadline guarantees your place in the exchange. Alternates will have seven (7) days from notification to provide payment to secure their placement.

Payment: Checks or money orders in US currency are preferred. 

Checks, money orders and credit cards in US currency accepted. Payment by check or money order should be made payable to Celyn Collins and sent to Celyn's attention at Elena’s, 2650 Paldan Drive, Auburn Hills, Michigan 48326.  Make sure that you put your participant number on the check.  Credit card payment is possible for those who can't send checks.  To pay by credit card (Visa or Master Card only), use the link at the bottom right of the page to contact Brad Walker for details on the procedure for making credit card payments. All funds will be deposited in a special fund to cover the cost of the exchange.  Any funds that are not needed to pay Exchange expenses will be donated to the Warm Glass Conference Scholarship fund.


3)  Minimum size: 1 inch by 1 inch (25mm x 25mm).   Maximum size: 2 inch by 2 inch (50mm x 50mm).  Magnets do not need to be square. All entries must include some form of kiln-formed glass work (fusing, casting, etc.).  They can be any shape desired -- round, square, rectangular, irregular -- so long as the shape conforms to the size limitations above.  To minimize shipping cost, actual magnets are not necessary, as recipients will attach their own if desired. (That's where the name "magless" comes from.)


4) Upon completion, maglesses are to be bagged in plastic bags appropriately sized for your magless and labeled with your name and entry number on the outside of the bag. Signing your magless with an engraver or glass paint is recommended. Please enclose a self address mailing label with your magnet shipment.  Mail finished magnets to Elena’s, 2009 Magless Exchange Attn: Celyn Collins, 2650 Paldan Drive, Auburn Hills, Michigan 48326.

5) Quantity: 126 maglesses per entrant. 125 will be used for the swap, one extra (for breakage if necessary) or to be auctioned off with proceeds going to the Warm Glass scholarship fund.


6) If you have any questions you can post them on the Community Projects Bulletin Board.  You may also contact the coordinator, Celyn Collins.

7) Details may be adjusted as necessary prior to completion of the exchange, and will be posted immediately on the Community Projects Bulletin Board. 


Thank you. Let’s have the best exchange ever!
