The Sew Weekly Sewing Circle

Hey there lovely ladies!


A while back, a group of us took part in a world-travelling lace and notions swap, and had lots of fun bundling up goodies and sending them as a surprise to one of the other Sew Weekly sewing circle ladies.  After the swap wrapped up, the idea was floated that we do something similar - this time with patterns!  It feels like enough time has passed now, so....  who's up for another mystery swap?


The idea for this one is:

 - Everyone who takes part will send a pattern to their swap partner.  New or vintage - it's up to you.

 - If you're keen to take part, email me your address and your measurements (bust, hip, waist) so I can pass these on to your swap partner (after all, they need to know what size pattern to hunt out for you, don't they?!)

 - I'll take sign-ups for the swap until next Sunday (2 October)

 - I'll then put all the names into a magic hat (aka a spreadsheet and's number generator) and email you the name, address, measurements and Sew Weekly name for the person you're sending something to

 - After that, we'll all have 2 weeks to find a pattern we think our swap partner would like and get it in the mail to them

 - Once we all receive our swap pattern, we'll post it up on here (use the tag 'patternswap') so we can see what we all got!

 - And then your challenge is to use that pattern - either as a separate challenge, or as part of a Sew Weekly challenge, whatever works for you.  Then post the picture of your creation up on here, using the tag 'patternswap' again so we can all see them.


What do you think?  Anyone keen?

I'm interested!
What's pokey??
Really slow...lost in one's own world (head)!
Sometimes called slow poke?? have you heard that one? hahaha
Sort of - more used to 'slow coach'!

Ha, got me on that one, never heard of a slow coach…


Here's the actual definition of pokey: not moving quickly; "taking a comparatively long time…"but I had forgotten it is also: "a correctional institution used to detain persons who are in the lawful custody of the government"


So then I went and looked up slow coach: "Brit informal a person who moves, acts, or works slowly US and Canadian equivalent slowpoke."

Cathe, thats funny,, I too ,knew it was also used for  " a correctional institute  for detained persons " or rather sometimes called, " jail birds." .hahahaha
 Pokey soinds better I think!
Diane, you know, I will use this one on Kenny... He telling me to speed up, walk faster, dont be a slow poke.. His legs are longer than mine, and he walks to0  fast.. so the next time..I am going to tell  him, to not be a "slow coach"..hahahha [he will assume it is Charolette T,  that told me... she always gets the blame,.lol]
