The Sew Weekly Sewing Circle

Well ladies, I don't know about you, but I've been following the outcomes of the A Common Thread Project and kinda wishing I could be a part of it, too!  The idea of getting something pretty in the mail from another crafty lady somewhere else in the world and then incorporating it into an outfit holds a lot of appeal.  :-)  Kind of like reinforcing that whole sewing community thing by making a garment that someone else contributed to.


So I've been thinking, and what I was thinking was - how about we do something similar via the Sewing Circle community?  What if those of us who were interested put our (virtual) hands up, and we then did a little out-of-the-hat draw and each of us sent some lace or pretty ribbon or nice buttons or similar to the person whose name we get given.  And then we can each make a garment incorporating what we receive in the mail from someone else in the circle!  Kind of like one big, happy, swapping circle of pretty sewing notions.


What do you think?  Would you be interested?  I'm happy to do the organising (i.e. collect names/addresses, do a random allocation and let everyone know who they're allocated to send something to) if people are keen.

I agree..good idea..lets post our envelopes.
OK - why not!
Look at all the lovely things Amanda (Davis) sent to me!  Arrived today in the UK from the US - that was quick - thank you so much Amanda, I feel so lucky!  I've written a longer post on the photo caption, but I'll say again how cute those Mickey Mouse buttons are!!
Gosh, we all spoilt each other rotten didn't we? ;)  Can't wait to see what every one gets and makes!
I've got mine!  I've got mine!  Thank you so much Rachel!  It's such a cool collection of things!  I've put a picture up on my page.  Now, what can I use all the bits for?  Hmmmm...
it does look lovely! I have mine too but will have to post it later
Your are wellcome Hun. I do hope you liked it and happy sewing !!!
Alright I was late to send but my package is on its way! Oh boy!
Bit late on sending mine out as well--but it's on the way!!  Has a long way to go and the Scottish post isn't known for being quick ,I've found :-) 

I must admit I was a bit dubious of my post office's optimistic estimations of between 4-7 working days for international delivery!


Don't worry, any failure of your postal system is balanced out by the pure awesomeness of having so many highland cows in one place at the same time. Well, it does in my mind anyway!
