Join the Party!

Fabrics.  Patterns.  Buttons.   Ribbons.  Boxes, drawers, cupboards and bags full of lovely things.  That’s what is hiding in my sewing space.  Some aren’t doing a terribly good job at being discrete.  Just about every year I tell myself I have to make more from what I have before picking up a delectable new something or other.

This time I decided I’d have to use two pieces of fabric from the stash before being allowed to purchase anything new.  So far, so good, but I have to admit that some of what’s “hiding” just isn’t me anymore.  And because I bought it for me, it won’t suit the girls either.  What to do?  SWAP!!

Kat from Modern Vintage Cupcakes and I have been planning a swap.  One person’s unsuitable fabrics or patterns could be just up someone else’s street.  And there’s no buying involved!  A win-win if you ask me!  Join us to Swap Your Stash this February – yes, just for February!!  We even have a button!  Thanks to Kat for this part, I’m hoplessly low tech on that front!

swap your stash

We’ll be revealing our own swap items in the next day or so, along with interviews from bloggers about their own stashes, how much they have, how they hide store it and how they add to it.   We have set up a Pinterest board for you to browse, and to add your own pictures of swap items.

Join us – it’s easy!  Read the guidelines, write a blog post showing all the things you want to swap, pin to Pinterest and let us know in comments on one of our blogs (Kat‘s or mine) what the URL of your swap blog post is. We’ll add you to the participant list, so other swappers can find you.

Get digging!  😀

I love fabric, and sewing. And I could do nothing else but sew, all day, every day, if I could!

  1. Hello! I wondered if I could jump in quickly. I was looking at the pinterest site, is that lilac-embroidered linen yours? If so can I nab it? Do you need to swap something of mine with me for me to be able to get it?
    I’m aiming to get a whole lot of patterns to swap on a post tomorrow 🙂
    Could you add me to the pinterest board? My name there is Imogheena Farandel.

    1. All done Imogheena! Welcome to the party, just leave a bagsie comment below the piece or pieces you’d like. Add your swaps too, as well as a link to your blog post.

  2. Oh wow and you know we’ve visitors coming in a week or so so I’ll need to seriously tidy up my sewing room. I think I will have to get into this one asap!

  3. Oh I really need to do this- my stash is getting out of control! Need to sort though the plastic tubs so this may take a bit of time before I can post.
