In just three weeks we’re moving from Sydney to Hong Kong.
Visas have come through, schools have been applied for, hotels and flights have been booked. There’s just the… ahem…. small task of my craft room. Oh dear God. I have spent years building up a stash of fabric, buttons, trims, notions and all manner of supplies. Now that I’m staring down the barrel of a tiny urban flat I’m going to have to have a serious clear out of what is known in these parts as the woman cave.
I can only take one box of craft items with me. And that has to include my sewing machine. Yes, it’s insane. I know that you understand this but my dear husband seems to think it’s quite reasonable. I can see that I’ll be sneaking extra items in with the kids toys and kitchen supplies. oops.
The silver lining of this cloud is having awesome asia craft supplies on my doorstep but how on earth am I going to destash my beloved craft room? What should I take? Do I prioritise the vintage items over others? It’s an unbearable task.
I began last week by sewing up lots of my red stash into bunting – this kind of destash I can definitely manage however I’d need another year to stitch it all up into projects.
So – any destash tips out there?
