The following info is for those of you who are attending for the first time this year or if you just need a pin swap refresher.

Here are the things to know:

  • When you register on the morning of Jan 17th, please give your one charm ( in an unnamed or unlabeled box) to an attendant at the registration table, your name tag will be marked at this time. Dont forget having a business card inside your package is a good idea!
  • Saturday evening the charm swap will start and tickets will be on sale for our first silent pin auction!!! ( and of course our famous T-shirt booth will be open at this time)
  • During the evening the charm swap desk attendant will call up everyone in groups to pull the box with the corresponding number on your name tag. NO PEEKING!!   After you pick your charm we highly suggest you try to find the person who made your charm.

And that is that!!!

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to email us at

Happy Making!


Your Friendly Symposium Staff.


One thought on “Get Ready for Some Serious Swapping!

  1. If you include a small photo of yourself in the box, it will be much easier for folks to find you and say “Thanks!”
