#SharingOurStash – Fabric Drop 3

Sharing Our Stash

Welcome to the fourth stash, and third fabric offering as part of the #SharingOurStash project. If you’re not familiar, #SharingOurStash is about me giving you free (or unbelievably cheap) materials from my studio. Why? A number of reasons. I need to make some space in my studio but more importantly, my values are very much about sustainability, upcycling and waste reduction. I don’t want the unused materials from my collections ending in the bin, I don’t want to add to landfill, and I truly believe there’s so many creative minds out there can upcycle these materials to make something fabulous.

So far I have offered up vintage buttons, and two lots of high quality fabric – see here and here. There’s still some of those stashes left, so if you want them leave a comment and I will be in touch. 

We’ve had stashes going as far as Australia and Canada and I am looking forward to seeing your makes!

  1. This is great, very interested 1.5m of no.1 Liberty will make a brill dress for my girl. If you have any polka dots white or red from previous stash would be interested in 1-1.5 m and a bag of buttons.

  2. Hello. Brilliant idea! Is it at all possible to have 2m of no.3 and 2m of no. 5 please, with 2 bags of buttons as well? Having read the T&C, I obviously wouldn’t be able to get anything done within the 4 week deadline of stash publication, so feel free to ignore this request if not acceptable. Many thanks whatever you decide – a great idea!
