I don't know about you guys, but I LOVE getting stuff in the mail. And I LOVE sending stuff! And, of course, I LOVE sewing! So, I ask you, what's better than getting a pattern in the mail!??
As such, I'd like to do a pattern swap. I did some research into how Kat did this last year, and her method seemed pretty successful, so I'm not going to re-invent the wheel here. I am going to add a few items to the directions (see below), just to ensure maximum happiness for participants. So here goes (I totally lifted this from Kat's post, BTW):
Want to confirm the following sign-ups: Emma Simuns, Joann, Sullyliz3.
Thank you for signing up ladies!
I'm game to participate. I'll try to send you an email this week. Please feel free to nag me if I don't. ;)
I'm in, now I just need to email all my info to you : )
Please count me in. I have lots of patterns - some used vintage and some new modern vintage
Tina- I'm just looking at this again, and I can't remember if I joined or not earlier this week.. Could you take a look and let me know?
You care good to go!
Hello all! I have 13 people signed up right now. Last call for participants! Sign ups close April 1st (that's Sunday! Eeeep! Where is this year GOING???!)
I totally missed out on this! Let's do it again. I have so many patterns to share, that are no where close to my size.
Hello friends! By now you should have shipped a pattern off to your partner! I would love to see what everyone got in the mail if you have the time, and are so inclined, to post what you got!
I blogged about my loot here: http://thecataloguer.wordpress.com/2012/04/09/sw-pattern-swap-loot/
Thanks for organizing this! It was awesome!
I got a WONDERFUL package from Diane (whose address includes a totally fairy tale book named road: Grimshoe Road)! She sent me this lovely pattern--New Look 6750. Which is totally up my alley as it has a bazillion different mix-n-match options! Two different bodices and skirt options coupled with three different sleeves...
Being as awesome as she is, she also included these little goodies (I couldn't get pictures to upload here, so I wrote a blog post). Thank you very much Diane!
