Giveaway: Stitch ‘n Swap book

Stitch n Swap Book GiveawaySo excited. Jake Finch, co-founder of Generation Q Magazine, has compiled a new book, Stitch ‘n Swap. It’s not out yet, but soon; the publication date is June 1, 2014. The subtitle says it all, 25 Handmade Projects to Sew, Give and Receive. Jake and Melissa explain in the March-April issue of Generation Q:

 The 25 projects we collected are generally fast to make, allow for lots of creative expression and all are useful to the recipient.

I’m going to give away a copy to a lucky Craft Gossip reader. All you need to do to get a chance to win is make a comment telling me about your last swapping experience. If you don’t swap, why not?

    I’ve never done any kind of swap, but this would be something that would be cool to do for our church to pull the younger and the older people together – give them some ideas, then let them run with it. I’m quite a bit younger than most of the other people that normally organize things there, and I’m always looking for new ideas!

    Did three pin cushion swaps – lots of fun. Finishing a mug rug swap with a lady in Australia now. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

    I loved reading the other comments. I had no idea there were so many types of swaps going on. Back beyond the time of the internet, I was involved with a group of quilters. We had a swap of fabric blocks. I don’t remember what I made but one woman made a water-colour quilt that made me weak in the knees.

    I have several crafting across the US and I think it would be fun to swap with them. Putting the swap date and crafters name on the item would make them extra special.

    Thanks so much for the opportunity to enter for this book. It sounds a great and useful read.
    I have participated in a few swaps but not lately, too busy with my own things and family.

    Happy days.

    I haven’t participated in any sort of swap….yet. I guess I haven’t been exposed to any yet?

  11. Cath T says

    Gosh, I never thought about swapping. I guess I’m a little insecure about somebody wanting something I made. Maybe this book will be the boost in confidence I need to start swapping. I’ve read about them; they do sound like fun.

    I swapped some paper die cuts for some fabric scraps. Worked out well and got a lot of convenient small pieces of fabric to craft with. I really need some project suggestions-inspirations.
    Thank you
