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 totally late as well! Just finished packing, so I'll send it tomorrow! Hopefully it wont take too long to get to where it's going...
Just to give a heads up, I have sent my package (about a week and a half ago, I think), but it will be traveling overseas. If you're in the UK and are waiting for your package, you may be waiting for mine. If that's the case, stay steadfast! It's coming for you, in the sweetest way possible. ;)
I sent my parcel off on the 13th before I went on holiday. Hopefully should have arrived by now, but I haven't seen the intended recipient online for a while so hope all is well.
Finally sent mine! Sent it express so they'll have it very soon i hope.

Hello ladies!

I'm jumping in for a moment just to say that I haven't received my packge. :-(((

I'm still hoping, though.

Who knows what may have happened...

I hope to be back soon with some garments done. Right now I have only time to dip my nose into papers...

Ciao and happy sewing!
