-8 per yard bought during stash game
+4 per yard sewn from fabric purchased during stash game
-4 per skein bought during stash game
+2 per skein used from skein purchased during stash game

**Trading for Fabric or Yarn counts as purchasing **UNLESS** you traded equal amounts of something from your stash to obtain the new item. (As in: 2 skeins of yarn TRADED for 2 skeins of yarn=NO points awarded or deducted. If you traded used diapers for 2 skeins of yarn=(-8) deduction).

+4 per yard or skein sold/given/thrown away from stash- READ BELOW!!!

*Ok we want to encourage you to sell, give away, throw away and otherwise rid your home of fabric. However, more important is sewing. This had never really come up before, but in honor of keeping with the idea to sew sew sew in order for the points for selling, giving, and throwing to count your sewing/creating total must be equal to that or greater. Meaning if you ..ah lets say give away 110 yds of fabric and get 440 points then you sew 330 pts...well your grand total is 330. However, if you sew 500 points worth then that 440 gets added to your total... so you have 940 points! Overall the name of the stash game is to sew and create and get an added bonus for getting stash out of your house!!**

**If you purchased yarn or fabric BEFORE the start of the game and it arrives during the Stash Game Month- it DOES NOT count against you! Only items Purchased/Traded DURING the month count for deductions.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------

paintbrush holder for DH
trainers for DS3 (I think this has been a goal for several months now.)
diaper covers for the girls

Re: February Use Your Fabric/Yarn Stash Game

OK this looks fun and motivating! I need to figure this out more but looks like I should mark my 'spot'

I'm Carrie, mama to 3 and greatly frustrated by any lack of time to get all the creative ideas in my head actually MADE. I have no money to spend so I use almost all stuff from my pretty extensive stash!

I'd like to make some diapers to sell but I'm very inspired to make my DS a bunch of new fitteds, longies both sewn and knit along with matching tshirts and hats to go with them for spring. I'd also like to make myself an apron, some stuffed animals with dyed OBV.... that's all I can think of at the moment, will elaborate more.

Re: February Use Your Fabric/Yarn Stash Game

Hello! I'm Dawn Craig. I'm a WAHM and also homeschool 3 of my 4 children (one is only 2 so he doesn't really do school yet). Last month I didn't get to keep track much because on Christmas Eve my hubby broke both bones in his leg so I rather occupied but still enjoyed keeping up with what everyone was doing. He's still kinda laid up can put 25% of his weight on it and can increase that as he feels he's ready, so that's good.

Goals for the month:
Keep up with what I work on better
work on UFO's (still have Christmas presents to finish)
