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

The 2011 coordinator will be Heidi Vander Werff.

Key dates:


2011 Magnet Exchange Over.


Signup ends December 15, 2010 or when 125 persons have signed up.
Receipt of Entry Fee:  December 30, 2010 or 10 days after signup.  If not received by this date, an alternate will be contacted to take your place.
Receipt of Magless: March 1, 2011  Your magnets must be received by this date!

Return of sorted magnets: Maglesses will be shipped out by March 20, 2011.


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 December 30th, 2010.   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.  Credit card payments possible for those who can't pay with a check.

Payment by check or money order should be made payable to Heide Vander Werff and sent to 2698 E. Kelly Road, Bellingham, WA 98226.    Make sure that you put your participant number on the check. 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 bulletin board operating 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 Heidi Vander Werff, 2698 E. Kelly Road, Bellingham, WA 98226. 

5) Quantity: Up to 126 maglesses per entrant (actual quantity to be determined after signup period is over). 


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

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. Letís have the best exchange ever!
