Late last year Fiona (@bendigolioness) held a small competition on her blog late last year about doing a craft it forward (http://bendigolioness.blogspot.com.au/2015/10/craft-it-forward.html) swap.
Fiona selected three people who agreed to receive a handmade gift from Fiona in return for having their own Craft It Forward on their blog and to send out three handmade gifts to people. I WAS SELECTED!
I caught up with Fiona in Kyneton (another gorgeous town in our local area) and she gave me my Craft it Forward gift today. A Lori Holt Stitchy Kit using, of course, Lori Holt fabrics!
Isn’t it just gorgeous? Thank you so much Fiona!
It is one thing I love our our quilting community on Instagram and on our blogs….. we all love to do things for others and as we enjoy making things (and using some of our gorgeous fabrics!) – this is a great way to do both!
So…. now I can start my own Craft It Forward 🙂
If you have an Instagram account and/or your own blog and are willing to host your own Craft it Forward within the 12 months after you receive your gift and send out something handmade to three people, then please comment below with your IG name, blog address and the type of thing that you would like to make for others.
The three people I select will each receive a handmade gift from me (you so know that a teddy bear cushion is going to be in there somewhere, don’t you!?) at some stage within the next 12 months. I am aiming for before Xmas, so hopefully within 6 months 🙂 As soon as you receive your Craft if Forward gift, you can start your own Craft it Forward and you need to send out your gifts within the following 12 months.
This is open to people all around the globe (fine print: I might choose to make smaller items under 500 grams for overseas people as our postage costs are HUGE from Australia!)
Ready, steady……. GO!
