Here are some more: (thanks Ellena!)

Let's get to the guidelines:


  • Your Name

  • Your Address

  • Your Email

  • Your Blog or Website address

  • Are you willing to do international shipping if needed?

  • 3 types of storage items you could use (ex: fabric storage, utensil storage, button holders, multi storage solutions, etc)


  • Swaps have a tendency to be a risk - will I put hours of work into something only to get something back that isn't near the hours I put in? While we all understand the risk we take participating in swaps, I ask that you really put time and effort into giving your partner something they can use. I do not expect you to answer every single request your partner may dream about - but please put some effort into this swap and your partner. If you are unable to fulfill your swap (believe me - I know this happens and life takes over!!), please let me know ASAP so I can find an angel to help!!

  • This round I am going to include your partner's email address. I like being surprised by my partner, but I think for a swap like this, you should be able to ask your partner questions. Your email will ONLY be shared with me and your partner - NOT publicly.


  • One sewing items tote or holder

  • Two of your favorite sewing notions or items (ex: ribbon, buttons, thread, needles, pin cushion, zippers, etc)

  • One NEW sewing pattern (simplicity, mccalls, pink fig, etc)


  • Sign Up Deadline: Friday, September 5th

  • Partners Exchanged: Sunday, September 7th

  • Swap Deadline: Friday, October 10th


  • Tell all your friends on your blog and be entered into a drawing to win your own copy of Sew and Stow. I LOVE this book and the ideas you get out of this book are incredible. So, spread the word and then leave me a comment on this post that you have done so. I will then enter you into the drawing. Have your friends tell me that they entered the swap because of your post and I will enter you for each friend that joins. So if you get 3 friends to join, then I will enter your name 3 times plus 1 more for posting about the swap! Get the word out!!!! The winner will be announced by NOON on Saturday, September 6th!
