Fabric Sale

uitnodiging_stoffenverkoop(2)

Hi everyone,

It’s been a while, and a lot has happened since we last talked. But I won’t be bothering you with this. I’ll only bother you with something you will like, or at least I hope you’ll like it.

It’s about fabric -insert evil smile-

Summer stashbust // 3 out, 1 in I’m stashbusting

Is a full year of stashbusting a bit to much for you? Luckely The Quirky Peach is challenging you to stashbust a whole summer long! And it’s stashbusting the advanced level! No new fabrics untill september 22. Whoa! That will be very hard, but I decided to participate to give my stashbusting challenge a boost! Although I have 2 exceptions:

  • The fabric that I ordered before I joined the stashbusting challenge. Since It’s comming from the other side of the pond it takes a while. And I only count my fabrics as in when I have them in my hands.
  • I will also be making some dressup stuff. And well if the colours don’t match there’s no fun in cosplay.

And you will you be joining in?

3 out 1 in, The Rules

I recieved some questions about the rules of this challenge. So I gave it a deep thought and these are the rules. If there is still something unclear, please let me know. 

Ground Rule

When you use, sell or give away 3 fabrics you can buy 1 new. Or the personal goal you set, like I explaned in this video

“Out”

Fabric is “out” when:

  • you made the project you bought it for or
  • you used at least 3/4’th of the fabric
  • Pieces longer then 3 yards: when you used at least 1 yard
  • If you make something form scrap pieces and all together they are at least 1 yard long

Exceptions

  • Lining and interfacing don’t count
  • If you have too few fabric to finish your project but only if it is exactly the same fabric.
  • if you go to a sewing(blog)meet and there is a fabric swap. You can only take home as much as you brought with you. This exception can be used 2 times. Of course you can also swap among friends, but the same rules apply.
  • Once per season you can use a wildcard. 4 time a year you can buy and extra fabric or you can buy 4 extra fabrics at once
  • You can choose if you count gifted fabrics. If you ask everyone to give you fabrics it’s cheating 😉 Only spontaneous gifts count for this exception.

3 out 1 in, I’m Stashbusting in 2014 update #1

Wow! I was really overwhelmed by the amount of participants for the 3 out, 1 in challenge! Thank you so much for your massive responses! There are more then 40 participants after a week! And we’re almost 50! To make this challenge a bit more fun there are several ways to get involved. For the bloggers there is the pretty button you can see above, thanks to the lovely Hanne from A New Dress. Not a blogger? Not a problem there are other ways to get involved together with bloggers like the Facebook group, is Flickr more you cup of tea? There is also a Flickr group. Or would you like a hash tag to use on Twitter, Instagram,…. The official hash tag for this challenge is #3out1in. I would love it if you all use it! The last option is pinterest. I made a pin board to keep track of all the blogpost about the challenge. But I won’t be able to find them all by myself. Would you like to help me? In the first newsletter I would like to focus on Stashbusting tips. Do you have a tip? Please let me know so I can add it.
