I have really enjoyed the swaps I’ve taken part in. Shopping or making for someone else, who you don’t really know, is both a bit of a challenge and lots of fun! Swaps are also a great way to get to meet other crafters. Oh, and you also get to receive some lovely goodies…
So far, in 2013, I have taken part in two swaps. My most recent was the International Craft Swap, organised by Rachel of House of Pinheiro. I made a few gifts for Jo of Sew Little Time and she made me a lovely wash bag. I’ve also swapped beads as part of the 7th Bead Soup Blog Hop with Jenny of Shyme Design (my make will be revealed soon). Those swaps are both over now, but after so much fun I want to do more!
” Who doesn’t love to receive a package of sewing items in the mail? And how fun is it to shop for someone who loves sewing as much as you do?”
The swap is based around sewing, but it is open to sewers of all backgrounds and abilities. I’m a beginner sewer (sewist?) and do indeed love doing everything Kerry mentions. I’ve signed up for this great sounding swap. If you want to know what is involved, you need to visit this post on Kestrel Makes.
Why not sign up yourself? You have until May 1st.
