Stash Reshuffled

At the last meeting of my local Garment Guild before the summer break we had a pattern & fabric swap. This necessitated a rummage through my pattern stash to see what I could weed out!


As it turns out, there were only 34 I was willing to part with at the moment 😉

I did get a good look at everything again, however, which is always useful. And it also reminded me that I didn't really need to pick up many more at the swap. But it didn't mean I completely held back! 

I picked up a small piece of striped knit, some lining, & a few patterns. The Folkwear ones were given to me directly by another member of the Guild who knows about my Vyshyvanka project. How thoughtful! I hope to use some of these before too long.

It's great to be able to share sewing supplies with other enthusiasts who you know will enjoy them. Swaps are a great time!


  1. I admire your ability to destash patterns, I’m so bad at that! Even when I can’t imagine a scenario in which I would actually where the garment, I hate to give up the future opportunity ;) Btw, I made that Four Good Measure top earlier this year and really like it.

    1. Oh, it's very hard for me too -- this is about 3% of my stash lol! I love to collect and am loath to part with many.
