Traveling Stash Box

We want to introduce the idea of a traveling stash box to be passed around at each meeting. Thank you Lindsay Conner for introducing us to the idea.

It will be a great way to destash your own collection, you know you have a fabric you are tired of. Plus you can pick up something that you may have been looking for.

Here are some ideas as to what the box could contain:
  • Large fabric scraps
  • Small fabric scraps
  • Selvages
  • Fat quarters
  • Patterns
  • Notions
To get started we are asking that everyone bring something(s) to the March meeting to have stuff for the first person. Each month, the box will be at our meetings. Members in attendance will be entered into a drawing to take the box home and be responsible for getting it back to the next meeting. If unable to attend the meeting, you can make other arrangements to get the box back.

The idea is to take a few new things for yourself and replace them with items from your stash for others.

We hope this will be great activity and give an opportunity to get to know other sewists better.
