Traveling Stash Giveaway

As you saw yesterday, I have a traveling stash box here.  This is the one that is posted on the 29th of each month and that is today.  It is really stuffed full and I had a hard time deciding what to take out.

There are quite a few 5 inch charms in the box and I picked out some of the polka dot ones.  I also took a cut of Christmas fabrics and the other polka dot fabrics from the box.  I also took the wool scraps to add to my wool collection and one pattern for a notebook cover.  There are several other patterns in the box.  I forgot that I took two other patterns out.

I haven’t replaced everything yet but rest assured, the box will be packed full of goodies when it moves on.



  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 The box is NOT a dumping place for all your outdated unwanted items.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.  :) 

The winner of this Traveling Stash will host the next giveaway on August 29th.

If you are interested in winning the box, leave me a message on this post.  As part of your message, tell me what your favorite summer dessert is.  I think mine is homemade ice cream. I will draw for a winner on August 5th and send the box on right after that.
