First Birthday celebrations with MIY Workshop’s first Sewing Swap

MIY Workshop shop front

My baby is a year old already.  To celebrate I will be holding a little gathering at the workshop on Friday 1st February from 7pm to 9pm.

In addition to generally celebrating a year of MIY Workshop I thought it was about time I did something I’ve been meaning to do for ages – a Sewing Swap.  An idea first floated by a student of mine, ooooo a good 6 months or more ago!!

MIYWorkshop sewing swap

So, does this look familiar? 
Come on admit your guilty secret, we’ve all done it – I’ll bet all of you have got one or all of the following:

  • a growing pile of fabrics waiting for “the perfect project”
  • a groaning bookshelf full of sewing books you’ve never opened
  • a box full of sewing patterns that you’ll “get round to making one day”.

Well, spring is on the way so why not have a good old clear out?
Bring along the things you’re really never likely to use, swap them for things that are more up your street and make a bit of room so that you can get stuck into some new projects this year.

It will work like this:

  • swap fabric for fabric (no scraps please, minimum 1m lengths only)
  • swap books for books
  • swap patterns for patterns.

Pretty straightforward really!  Look forward to seeing you there.

Remember, it’s a birthday celebration too, it won’t be compulsory to take part in the Sewing Swap!
