I belong to a group on FB called 'quilt club Australia' (if you are a quilter, you should definately look it up) And someone posted on there:

"I have heaps of stuff I'm waiting on from the US atm, called international dept of AustPost on Friday and was told that there are 20,000 parcels on backload atm due to a shortage of flights from US to Oz so 5 weeks for a parcel is not unexpected right now. I was miffed but what can ya do. So if orders are late from a trusted supplier that could be why."

I have Fabric mail that has been delayed and I think I may have a couple of swap packages in there too. I thought it was worth posting just incase this is relevant to any of the swaps that you are currently in.

Thanks so much for this info! I have been worried about not receiving parcels from craftster swaps and hopefully this is an explanation Smiley

Thanks nilmerg! I'm one of those who have sent to Oodelally, and I was getting worried about my parcel. At least I know what the deal is.

In the end, only kindness matters.
