Name Tag Swap!

April 12, 2012

Another tradition for Sew It Together is the Name Tag Swap!

For this swap, you commit to making a handmade name tag for somebody else attending Sew It Together. It’s a blind swap, so you won’t know who is making yours until it arrives! These will need to be completed and posted out before Sew It Together, so the recipient will bring it to Canberra and proudly wear it on their lanyard.

We have seen some amazing examples of name tags made over the last two years, and this is a swap I wouldn’t miss for the world. Trust me, it will be worth all the trouble, when you proudly get to walk into SIT with a handmade name tag.

Now I should add that you should not be intimidated by some of the tags that you see from previous years. We all know that there are experienced ladies coming along as well as really inexperienced ladies, and it’s not about how technically amazing your name tag is. It’s about having something made, just for you by someone else, that you get to wear with pride.

To sign up, please go and see this post from the delightful Gillian, who has kindly volunteered to host the Name Tag Swap this year.

Name Tag Swap – reminder!

January 27, 2011

I’m delighted to tell you that there are now 51 people booked to come to the Saturday Crafting Session (hooray!), but that means there are 26 of you who are going to be super disappointed that you didn’t sign up for the name tag swap.

Trust me……when the girls in Melbourne, who didn’t participate, turned up without a gorgeous handmade name tag on, they were very regretful.

Don’t let that be you!

Signups close tomorrow over at Megan’s blog, and you can find the post to sign up here.

Name Tag Swap!

January 12, 2011

Hooray! It’s on again this year, and I am absolutely indebted to Megan from Edan Rose for volunteering to host this year’s swap.

Don’t be one of those ladies in Melbourne who really regretted not participating in this swap – the name tags that were produced were simply amazing.

Get your creative thinking caps on, and go and sign up over here!

Signups close 28 January.

Name Tags

April 12, 2010

This blog has been a little quiet lately, so I thought I would share some of the fabulous name tags that are popping up in the Flickr group, in case you haven’t been in there lately.

I have to admit, this is my favourite:

Made by Karen for Julie

Made by Katia for Susie

Made by Lara for Beck

Made by Lisa for Lara

There are lots more name tags in the Flickr group to admire. Many don’t have their names revealed just yet, but you can still admire their gorgeousness.

Well done everyone – I am so inspired by your creativity!

Sew It Together Flickr Group

March 21, 2010

After seeing a few name tags from Gypsy‘s swap popping up in blogs, I realised that we needed a Flickr group!

Here it is:

Please add your photos of name tags, and anything else that is relevant to Sew It Together. It will be nice to see all the name tags in one place!

The Neckwear of Choice

Surprisingly, I have finished my name tag for Gypsy‘s swap well before the deadline and it is ready to be sent off. I blogged about it here.

In conjunction with that, I also thought you might like to see what I picked up this week.

Oh, yeah, sorry I had to take a photo in the mirror. You can read in mirror image, can’t you. If not, just grab your laptop and find your own mirror. Then you can see the magnificence of the Sew It Together lanyard.

Cool, huh?

Swap Time!

February 21, 2010

I’m delighted to announce a swap for the participants of Sew It Together. We are going to swap….


Gypsy, of The Craft Gypsy has graciously offered to host the swap, and you will find all the details on her blog post here. If you are interested, please make sure you sign up over at The Craft Gypsy (and not here), so that Gypsy has all your details.

Participation is not compulsory and is open to anyone attending any event at Sew It Together.

Thanks so much to Gypsy for organising this! It’s a great idea and I’m looking forward to seeing what people come up with.
