Reverse appliqué heart, log cabin patchwork mini-hoop, using Liberty fabric scraps and Kona solid in ivory by Very Berry Handmade.

After the success of the first hoop swap trial, I am so excited to announce that the sign-ups for the second Very Berry mini-hoop swap are now OPEN!

The rules:

55mm miniature embroidery hoop frame DIY kit - 2.2" hoop frame set ONLY - unique Dandelyne miniature hoop

  • You can use another brand of hoop if you like, but not more than 2.5 inches (64mm) in diameter please. If you are outside the UK, then you can find a list of Dandelyne stockists just here.
  • There’s no theme for the swap – but please take your partner’s likes and dislikes into consideration.
  • Participants can be from anywhere in the world, so you need to be prepared to post your completed hoop to anywhere in the world.
  • You must have a public Instagram account for this swap, and commit to at least ONE swap-related photo. Please use #veryberryhoopswap on pics relating to the swap. If you don’t fulfil this obligation you will be unable to join in future Very Berry swaps.
  • This will be a secret swap, rather than a partner to partner swap (i.e. you won’t be sending to the person who sends a hoop to you).
  • Any textile art is acceptable for the swap – please don’t think you have to limit yourself to handstitching, cross-stitch or embroidery.
  • Please don’t include anything else in the swap parcel – other than a card/note with – I don’t want anyone feeling put off the swap because of the cost of extras.
  • Please sign up by midnight on 15 July – leave a comment on this post and fill in the swap form – partners will be assigned over the weekend. If you haven’t heard from me by the end of 18 July, please get in touch.
  • Posting week is the 5-10 of September (or a little earlier if you are overseas).

Don’t forget, use the code HOOPY10 to get 10% off all supplies for the from Cloud Craft – Nicole has everything you could need to make a beautiful little hoop!

  1. I think I missed the deadline I just saw this cute little swap but I filled out the form anyway just in case you hadn’t closed it out yet.

  2. Ooh! I think I have just missed the deadline! Heartbroken! </3 I'm in the midst of a big tidy-up 'festival' (as KonMari says) and haven't been checking my Instagram for some days, so I've just seen Cloud Craft's announcement in my feed right now! I would have really loved to take part: in case there is an extension of the deadline, dear Ali, could you please take me on too? ^__^
