Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.


Everyone must now inbox me their mailing addresses

in order to "play"!



If you are interested in a HALF yard swap:


I'm will co-ordinate a HALF yard swap for 100% cotton if there is enough interest.

Please consider a few things before saying yes:

  • Do you have time.
  • Do you have a yard you want to part with.
  • Is shipping a problem for you.

If there is not enough interest within 7 days - there will not be a swap.




A swap, is simply just that, swapping fabric within a group.



Once you have received the name and address of your swap recipient within your SWN inbox:


  • Choose a HALF yard of cotton fabric from your stash, that you are willing to part with
  • Check your inbox (once I have announced the swap has been organized) for the address of your swap recipient.
  • Fold the fabric into a flat piece, or wrap it aroud a piece of light cardboard so that it retains it's shape within your envelope.
  • Wrap your fabric in a plastic grocery bag - in case the mailing depots, trucks, boxes, etc are damp.
  • Place your fabric into an envelope.
  • Insert a card or handwritten note into your envelope for your swap receipient just to say hello, and possibly providing them with the fiber content of your fabric piece.
  • Address your envelope. Ship it without delay!
  • Swap addresses and assignments will not be published. 


Once you have received your fabric, please post indicating so, so that the sender knows you have received it.


Post a photo of whatever you make out of the fabric, once your sewing project has been completed.


Participants outside of the USA will be put on a separate list in order to try to match according to country and reduce international shipping costs.  All welcome!
