London Pattern and Fabric Swap

Post 85

Hey boys and girls, just a quick post to let you know about the pattern and fabric swap happening in central London next week.

I have long been meaning to go to a swap, so much so that I even imagined organising one myself. Of course I never managed to get my act together and actually do something about it, so when I saw the thread on the Fold Line Forum, I jumped for joy!

What’s the point of a swap? Guilt-free novelty, that’s what, my friends!! And this works two fold: I get to feel less guilty about impulse purchases that just sat in my stash for years which will be given a better home. And I might get hold of some fabric and patterns that I wanted for a while, but felt too guilty to buy because of the size of my afore mentioned stash of both.

Now, I have never been to a swap before, so my expectations might be completely misguided… Do chip in if you know better!  But the way I see it, even if I end up not getting anything new, I will get to meet a bunch of awesome sewing people and have a good sewing natter!

So, hope to see as many of you London sewists there as possible. Here are the deets:

The meet-up is organised by Kirsty from Scientific Sewing.

We are meeting at 1 PM in Central London, Wardour Street at a pub called Waxy’s Little Sister, here’s how to get there. We’ll be upstairs.

Come on, you know you want to destash! Go rummage through your boxes and meet us there!!

Alex xx
