Traveling Stash

I am not sure if you have heard of the traveling stash, but it's awesome! You can find more out about it here. I won the stash from Wendy at Stitchduchess Crazy & Sane quilting world

Here are the rules and guidelines:

  1. Be an active blogger. Post about receiving and the giveaway on your blog in a timely manner.
  2. There is a note in the box that logs where the box has been. Please add your info and place the note back in the box.
  3. There is a list of Rules and Guidelines in the box. Please read and follow these and return the list to the box.
  4. You may take anything you like from the box. Just replace every item with comparable quilt shop quality items equal to the amount taken. See guidelines below.
  5. Ship the box to the next person in a reasonable amount of time.
  6. Due to the amount of postage shipping is only within the USA.
The definition of a stash is a secret store of valuables. For quilters it's a collection of usable quality products. The stash should contain mostly fabric with a few patterns and/or books and other items.
  • FABRIC:     Should be quilt shop quality in new condition. Scraps should only be included if they are cut for adding to a collection and packaged accordingly (i.e. I-Spy squares, postage stamp squares, etc.). There should not be anything under a Fat Quarter unless packaged like this.
  • PATTERNS/BOOKS:     Should be in new or gently used condition. They should be kept to a minimum (books are bulky and add weight).
  • OTHER ITEMS:     Should be in new or gently used condition. Tools, notions, etc. These items should be packaged if necessary.
  • If you receive a box with anything that is of "poor" condition you should not feel guilty in tossing it out.
  • Only put items in the box that you would be proud to own. The box is NOT a dumping place for all your outdated unwanted items.
  • Items should be free of smoke and pet hairs.
  • You must replace items you take with the same quantity of like-kind items. Replacing more than you take is always welcome.  :)
Here are the pictures from the stash I received today!

 Look at all that fun fabric and patterns!

Right now this is what I took (I might change my mind before I ship it out ;) )

And right now I've added one charm pack.  (You'll have to wait until you get the box to see what else you are getting!)  If you would like to be entered to win this, please leave me a comment telling me where you live!

This will be open until Thursday April 11th.


  1. I haven't had this one yet, so sign me up!

  2. Lovely box. I see a few items I would love to trade for. Send this box by my house please.


I would love it if you would leave me a comment!
