2016 Stasbusting Sew-A-Long Pledge & 2015 Total

79 yards removed from the stash from March 1st, 2015 to December 31st, 2015.

I still have an enormous stash because my Mom and grandmothers gave me their stashes when they quit sewing - BUT I'm so excited about using the 79 yards of fabric from the stash!
I found out/joined my stashbusting group in March of 2015 and stashbusted way more than I expected to! Because of what I was able to accomplish, I am going to pledge to use 100 yards from the stash in 2016! 

I want to give myself some room to buy fabric (that I will regret if I leave there, or I just LOVE so much) and so, to accommodate that, the yardage I buy will be subtracted from the "total fabric busted" (creating an incentive to not buy fabric.)

"I, Jewel, Contributor to Jewberly Emiris, avid sewist, and overall fabric lover, pledge to use 100 yards from the stash and subtract any yardage purchased from the used fabric total."

Here goes....! I hope to share my projects as soon as I'm done...rather then never sharing them which has happened to be the case the last two months. (*nervous laugh* sorry about that)
I need to figure out a better organized schedule...another thing to accomplish in 2016!

Happy New Year!!!

  1. Wow Jewel, its been a great year for you. I never counted my yardage or tracked the amounts I was using. I'll keep track of how much I used at least in 2016. I really don't want to inventory and count it up. I'd rather sew.

  2. I like your pledge. I feel nervous about pledging because my numbers are just too scary. Perhaps I should copy your pledge :). You did well with your stash bust, congratulations.

  3. Yay! I am so glad you will be joining us this year too! I look forward to seeing what you make.
