Default Freebies (kinda long)

On Thursday, April 2, 1998 at 4:00:00 AM UTC-4, Mark & Joci Kerr wrote:
In the process of packing for upcoming move, I've run across several
extra copies of DMC free charts. I would like to share these with
non-USA stitchers first, on a first-come-fist-serve basis; then USA
stitchers if any remain.

Send me an e-mail with your request, including your mailing address, by
5:00 PM USA Eastern Time, Wednesday, April 8, 1998. That night I'll
sort them by location and time of arrival, and post them 4/9 or 4/10
(depends on how the packing is going).

I've checked the postage requirements, and know that each chart will run
me a bit in postage --- but all I'd like in return is a picture postcard
of a local site or scene after you receive the chart(s). I'll send my
address when I confirm you will be receiving your requested chart(s).

This is meant as a "good" diversion for me from the drudgery and anxiety
of packing, showing house, etc., etc. If I go crazy in the meantime,
I'll try to let you know.:-)

Do you still have a copy of #9054 Freshwater Pearls available?
