“Stash: a secret store of valuables”
For quilters, it’s a collections of usable quality products. This is an essential part of this
addiction hobby. To help us all with this necessity, there has been a sweet little box floating around the country (with a few stops in Canada) since January 2011. It’s called “The traveling stash”. There are 6 boxes going from house to house, bringing many smiles along the way. In these boxes, you will find many different sewing and quilting items: patterns, magazines, thread, ribbons, bobbins, needles, and our beloved fabric!
The deal is, if you win one of these boxes, you can take anything you want from it. Just make sure that you add equal to, or more than, what you took back into the box. The boxes are not meant to be a dumping ground for items you no longer want that are of poor quality. There is nothing wrong with putting fabric or notions in there that you no longer care for, they just need to be of quilt shop quality items and notions that are new.
Guess what? Just in time for my birthday I won box #1!! It was exciting to get this in the mail and to reveal of the lovely contents!
Here are the items of the box as I received it.
Aren’t those lovely goodies?! (sorry for the blurry picture)
Here are the items I am taking.
And these are the items I am giving.
