TACKLING THE STASH + FREE FABRIC

July 13, 2012

Since we have a big move to NYC coming up soon I thought that today I better finally tackle the fabric stash that has been accumulating for the past, hmmm, ten plus years.  I am proud to say that this morning the stash looked like this:

And now it looks like this :

That being said I need to get rid of these other two bins of fabric and scraps.  If anyone lives in the Chicagoland area and would like them (for free) send me an email and we can set up a time for you to get it.  I also have  a lot of patterns that I will be giving away too.  There are a few baby patterns, but most of them are women’s 6-14.  If no one takes them I will just be dropping them off at a thrift store.

    I would be willing to pay for shipping if you would offer that!

    I wish we weren’t moving, too, or I’d LOVE to come grab your stash rejects! Sadly, I don’t think they’ll fit in our 500 square foot box called an apartment.

    Oh my gosh, congrats on whittling down your stash! That’s a huge task! Hope the packing and moving goes smoothly. 🙂 Have you guys found a place yet?

    Free fabric?! I don’t live in the area but I wish I did (I’d be there with the quickness)!

    Methinks my stash might be out of control, in comparison to that little bin!

    I’m definitely interested in the patterns, but I don’t live near you. Any idea on how many – I may be able to swing the shipping cost 😉

    Re-organizing the stash is so satisfying! I did the exact same thing on Friday night and reorganized 2 suitcases and 1 plastic bin of fabric to make everything more accessible…Good job on sorting out and downsizing yours!!
