milarca asked: Hi there! =) So I heard about your Halloween Gift Card Exchange and I was just wondering I guess if there were any qualifications for it? ^^ I mean I don't live in Seattle so idk I just want to check if anyone can do it or what haha ^^ It sounds like a lot of fun! :-3

Nope, there are no qualifications other than you want to send Halloween cards, you’re willing and able to mail them in a timely manner, and you want to receive Halloween cards in return. That’s it! Thems the rules! You could be a basset hound or an alien for all we care, though it does help if you’re into Sherlock. ;)

It’s the SHERLOCK SEATTLE HALLOWEEN CARD EXCHANGE!!

scienceofdeducjohn asked: Hi, first of all thank you for doing these great things :D I was just wondering if the Halloween cards thingy is international?

You are most welcome! I must confess, doing the card exchanges is probably my most favorite Sherlock Seattle thing to do. I LOVE getting cards! >:D And yes, international people count too! I’ve gotten cards from France and India and England and all over the place! That’s super cool!

teawiththecatinthetree asked: About the Halloween cards: Can anyone participate? Is there a certain place you have to live to do this? 'Cause I'd love to make a card for someone.

Anyone can participate! The more the merrier! :D

kittyinapot asked: Do you have to be around Seattle to join the card exchange?

ABSOLUTELY NOT! Anyone can participate so long as you have a mailing address and are willing to send cards! :D

johnsconsultingboyfriend asked: A question about the Halloween cards: Are they supposed to be Sherlock related or just regular Halloween cards? I have no issues making Sherlock cards, and I also have no qualms about purchasing Halloween cards, I'm just curious! Thanks!

An excellent question!

In general we encourage people to make/commission/send Sherlockian cards, but it’s not a requirement. It’s just cooler to get a Sherlockian Halloween card than a regular Halloween card, but in this day an age, getting a card at ALL is pretty damn spiffy! So, in other words, don’t sweat it, it’s all good. :)
