I love fabric. It’s a sickness for which I’m afraid there is no cure.
The problem is that I love fabric so much that it’s about to take over my sewing/craft room. There was so much fabric jammed into my closet that I couldn’t even tell what I had stashed in there.
As I was working on turning the sewing/craft room into the sewing/craft/guest room now that baby is on her way (Sob! No more room just for me!), I decided that a huge fabric purge and de-stash was in order. I couldn’t believe the stuff that I pulled out of that closet, and I really had to force myself to let it go. “You are never going to use that,” I keep telling myself.
But do you know who is going to use it? You are.
On Wednesday, May 5th at promptly 10:00 am Central Time, I am going to post pictures of my stash here on the blog and it will be up for grabs – FOR FREE. I have cotton/quilting weights, decor weights, knits, corduroy, fleece, denim, and shirting. The above picture only shows about 1/4 of what I’ve got coming to you guys. Yards and yards and yards – some in full blown yardages and other in smaller, but still useful, pieces. A lot of it you’ve probably seen used around my home, but most of it will probably be new to you.
The fabric will be first-come, first-served. You will simply leave a comment telling me what you want me to send you, and I’ll do it. If something that you want is already spoken for, go ahead and comment anyway, because that first person may fall through. I’ll do my best to update the post and mark the ones gone that are truly gone. I’m not going to let anyone claim all of it or most of it, so everyone will get a shot (if you are here when the post goes up, of course).
The only thing I ask of you is that you cover the shipping cost via PayPal ( I can fit about 4-5 yards into a USPS flat rate envelope for about $5) and maybe 50-cents or so to cover the Paypal fees. If you want just a little bit of fabric (a yard or under), I can calculate shipping if it’s going to cost less than the $5 flat rate envelope. I’m happy to ship internationally, too, and we’ll figure out together how much shipping would cost.
So, set your iPhone alarms, record it in your Blackberries, write it on your chalkboards and get ready to pounce on Wednesday morning. It should be fun!
