1. Bring a pattern – Take a pattern:
Set up a table for members to contribute 1-3 sewing patterns they no longer want. You may take home up-to the same number of patterns you contributed from the stash. Have rules posted such as: “You must CONTRIBUTE in order to TAKE”, it will encourage others to bring in more patterns for the swap next month or meeting!
2. Pincushion Party:
Make a handmade pincushion and bring it in a sealed brown lunch bag! Have everyone stand in a circle with their bag. Roll one dice on a table, everyone passes the brown bags to their right the number on the dice, (so no one gets their own). Have fun opening and showing off the pincushions received!
3. Button Jar:
Each meeting for one year, members must contribute a card of buttons or small handful of buttons into a large jar. Make sure members know this is a regular meeting entry fee (buttons). Pick a final date, such as holiday party or end of year to have a random drawing where one person present wins the jar of buttons!
