#stitchingsanta Blog Christmas Gift Swap!


ButtonLast year I participated in what turned out to be an amazing experience, a Secret Santa with a difference aimed at all the like-minded crafty folk here on the internet – YOU!

Whether you’re one of the lucky few whose family know and understand you so well that you receive endless perfect gifts based on your love of sewing/crochet/knitting or, like me, your wish list is met with a “What do you want one of those for….what is it anyway?” – #stitchingsanta is for you.

Can you imagine unwrapping a gorgeous skein of wool, a perfect metre of fabric, some vintage buttons or some embroidery silks? Perhaps a little handmade gift has been popped in the parcel too? All lovingly thought out with your interests in mind and guaranteed to be under your tree on Christmas morning. What a treat!

There are TWO categories to choose from – you can enter both or just one but PLEASE state your preference in your email. Choose from “Sewing” or “Crochet/Knitting”.

The idea is simple: if you would like to take part, comment below by the deadline of 31st October and I’ll send you the details of your lucky recipient.

You may already know this person as a follower of their blog but, if not, have a good look around their blog and try to put together some gifts that they would really appreciate. See my experience of last year’s #sewingsanta for what to expect: –

  5. Blog about your #stitchingsanta (linking back to this post) and share using the hash tag.

  8. Hi Sewchet! I haven’t heard if I have been paired with anyone. Did I miss an email?


    • Oh my god! Yes, you were sent an email on 4th November with details of your recipient!!! I have sent it to you again – will you be able to put a parcel together by Monday for it to arrive by Christmas? You will receive a parcel from someone if it hasn’t already arrived.
