STEP 1: How to package your squares
Make sure your squares are 8” (20cm).
Darn all loose ends.
Butterfly the 20” (50cm) tail for sewing up to avoid tangling during unpacking.
Bundle large numbers of squares into 5’s or 10’s. The squares can also be bundled into square packs of 35 if there are enough of them.
Wrap your squares and crocheted or knitted items in a plastic bag or buy Tyvek bags or postal bags with an inner plastic coating to keep them moisture proof.
Send your squares flat. It takes time to unroll squares.
Add ‘slip-ins.’ Frequently, items such as soft toys and teddies are sent in parcels. It is most important that all packaging, labels, price tags, etc. be removed. Once this is done, the item qualifies as used and will not attract duty. It’s not necessary to declare these on a customs slip since they have ‘No Commercial Value.’
Include the packing slip inside the package.
