Mini-embroidery hoop swap: Sign ups open now

Swap sign-ups are now closed – thanks so much for your enthusiasm!


I am so excited to announce that the sign-ups for the third Very Berry mini-hoop swap are now OPEN! Please read the rules carefully before signing up, to make sure that you know what you are getting yourself into 😉

The rules:

55mm miniature embroidery hoop frame DIY kit - 2.2

  • 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, although I will try and take any preference into consideration.
  • You must have an active 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 3 February – 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 6th February, please get in touch.
  • Posting week is the 27-31 of March (or a little earlier if your partner is overseas).

Don’t forget, use the code HOOPY10 to get 10% off all supplies, between 3rd and 7th February, from Cloud Craft – Nicole has everything you could need to make a beautiful little hoop!
