It’s October now – so can I say ‘Santa’?
Do you have lots of friends and family who understand just what a sewing/knitting/crochet addict wants for Christmas? If you have, you’re lucky. I find it difficult to make a wish list for my family unless it’s very specific and then that spoils the surprise.
For the third year running, Sheila who blogs over at Sewchet, has the answer.
She is organising Stitching Santa again .
In a Christmas nutshell :-
Sheila will partner you with somebody in your category – you can participate in the one for Knitting/Crochet or the one for Sewing – or you can enter both. I am!
If you don’t already follow that person’s blog, it is a good idea to ‘blog stalk’ them to get an idea of their likes and dislikes and their taste in general.
You send a parcel containing a gift costing no more than £10 (other currencies shown over at Sheila’s blog) and anything else you think your recipient would like such as little handmade gifts, accessories, notions, etc.
You will receive a parcel in return (woohoo!) which you should put under the tree until Christmas morning even though you might be tempted to squeeze and manhandle it a little
You can enter from anywhere in the World and Sheila will try to match you up so the shipping costs aren’t too bad.

I entered last year and it was great fun to choose gifts to include in the parcels and to have pressies under the tree that I knew would be themed especially for me and my sewing and knitting habits.
Sorry, I think I put the ‘C’ word in there somewhere as well but there’s only about 84 sleeps left.
