The Brighton De-Stash Meet-Up!

It's a New Year, and a great time to clear the decks and start as we mean to go on. With this in mind Zoe of 'So, Zo...'  and myself are co-hosting a meeting up at the beginning of February for sewists looking to destash their fabrics, patterns, notions etc. Come and join us to clear your unwanted items - give that book / magazine a new loving home, donate some thread that doesn't match your fabric, and find some lovely new & FREE treasures to start off your 2012 sewing with some fun!

If like many (most?!) sewists you find that you spend too much time wading repeatedly through the same piles of fabric and patterns in your stash. Or, that you're always purchasing more fabric even though you've a box / cupboard / room full already (delete as appropriate!). Perhaps, when it comes to your sewing supplies you often find yourself feeling like you've "Too many clothes fabrics, and nothing to wear sew?" then maybe you've fallen out of love with some of your purchases. Let's share some of the sew-jo around and come along to Brighton to swap your old stuff for new-to-you stuff. That 'ol thing you no longer like may turn out to be someone else's treasure :)

                   Place: Brighton Rail Station - outside the WHSmith shop
                   Date: Saturday 4th February 2012
                   Time: Meet-up from 11.30am till 12pm
                   Swap-a-thon: 12pm onwards!

We'll meet up from 11.30am outside of the WHSmiths inside of the station, then aim to walk to the cafe/bar (venue as yet to be announced) around 12pm. There, we'll swap and de-stash, chat, eat lunch and make merry. Afterwards they'll be plenty of time to visit some of the lovely sewing hot-spots 'n' shops that Brighton has to offer... afterall you may just need some new buttons to go with your newly acquired pattern and fabric!

                      Wanna join in the fun?...

Maps and mobile phone numbers for contacts on the day itself will be emailed to attendees nearer the time once a list of names has been confirmed.

Zoe and I are looking forward to seeing you there!

P.S. You've still got 6 more days to enter my first ever GIVEAWAY :)


  1. I would have loved to come - but have train tickets booked for early that morning so that my daughter and I can queue up and try to get tickets to see the Da Vinci exhibition at the National Gallery. Next time though.....

    Have a great meet-up.

  2. Oh what a bugger, I can't make it!! Already have commitments both for the Saturday and the Sunday. Hope you have all fun.
