This swap is open:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=407908.new

A month or two ago, there was a lot of interest in a pin cushion swap and it was decided that susanab and I would organize it, and expand it to include all sorts of sewing accessories.  We are ready to get moving on this now, who's with us??

I would like to start sign-ups in a few days, with partners given a week later, and a 3-week crafting time, putting send-outs near the end of May.

We're thinking of a small, 2-point swap, so you will have your choice of making 2 smalls, or a medium item.  Here's my list of things I can think of that would fall into the category of "sewing accessories"--please help me out, I will add your suggestions to this list.  I've indicated the point value of each item just in case anyone is wondering about that:

pincushion (1 pt.)
needle book (1 pt.)
scissor's fob (1 pt.)
chatelaine (1-2 pt.) http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/quilting/Other/Quilters-Chatelaine/5611
sewing machine cover (2 pt.)
project bag/organizer (2 pt.)
thread catcher
free sewing accessories patterns
weighted pincushion organizer
sewing caddy and thread catcher patterns
I will include a spot on the questionnaire for you to list the item(s) you really want to receive, so all you pin cushion lovers can indicate your wish!

I AM TOTALLY WITH YOU TWO ON A SEWING ACCESSORIES SWAP - I already have some plans for some GREAT sewing accessories - and have purposely NOT made them for the last few swaps I've finished!  Count me as ALL THE WAY INTERESTED AND WANTING TO SIGN UP!  Thanks, Leslie and Susan, AGAIN!   Cool

AND, what about a thread catcher - either a little basket for thread ends (while sewing) or a little felt-like or flannel booklet for holding onto thread ends you cut away while sewing?  I have both types of these - I have seen some really unique designs too.


PS - I know what a chatelaine can be, but how does it relate to sewing accessories?  Maybe it's something that I call by another name.  Isn't a chatelaine a pendant type thing?  OR a mistress of a castle?  Help me on this!  Huh

I didn't realize how many definitions fit the word "chatelaine"!!!  This is the type of thing I was thinking about:
http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/quilting/Other/Quilters-Chatelaine/5611

I have a simple one made from ribbon, with loops and rings to hold different things, and a small pouch on one end; I've hardly ever used it, but if it was pretty like the one in this link, I might use it more!

I will add the thread catcher to the list (I could probably use one of those, since I always just throw my thread on the floor...!)

YES!! A small swap like this can be squeezed in. I am already in 3 swaps, with one almost done (your package fiddle will be on it's trip to you tomorrow). How can I resist, when I see the cat (again, I'm honoured) staring at me??  Grin Oh and Susan/Leslie swaps are so much fun!!

What can I say, I just love sewing and all the accessories (having difficulties typing that word, thank you spelling check) that are sew related!!

Again a long story to just say YES!  Smiley

Oh Boy I've been waiting for this!! Thanks Leslie & Susan for organizing this!!
I think little sewing organizers would be cool & or a pincushion with a little bag attached for your small threads!! Here's some links:

I've been looking for some small projects to get me crafting again. And I've wanted to make some little things like this for a long time - will you be posting a link here once the swap is organized?

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."
