View Full Version : Fabric hoard collected at garage sale today!

April 27th, 2013, 08:16 PM
My wonderful neighbor across goes to garage sales all of the time in the spring and summer. She called my house to advise I get in her van when she pulled in.....I said, "What's all the excitement about?" My neighbor stated, " I found some beautiful fabric at a sale you might be interested in. "
So, she took me to the sale she had been at earlier and she wasn't wrong...I picked up 33 yards of beautiful fabric for $25.00......thrilled me out of this world! I'm so glad that good friends are watching out for my best interest!!!!!46127

Right, Libby! You know, it kind of blows your mind when you think how much 33 yards would be at retail....

Wonderful acquisition! Finding space in the stash room for 33 yards of new fabric should be a challenge, though.

Must be something in the air! My friend emailed tonight, that her neighbor is having a garage sale and has fabric. She is going after it for me! Isn't that awesome. We got great friends!!
P.s. like I need more fabric, but hey I am not complaining or turning it down. LOL

What a good neighbour to think of you when she saw material on sale!
Is the lady going to get a quilt?

First of all, you have a really nice neighbor. Secondly, you made out - congrats!

I really shouldn't read posts like this - they reduce me to tears. I'm lucky to get 2 yards of crappy material in a sale for that price here!

Oh well - I'm pleased for you (she says through gritted teeth) enjoy!!!!!

I wouldn't mind having that blue stripe fabric. I love stripes!

Eileen83flowers....she is last least getting a table runner for her great insight and well thoughts!

I know, deedum! I'm going to have to buy an extra tub for fabric storage. I was sure when my husband saw me walking into the house with more fabric, I thought I would get quite the "chewing". But once I calculated what that much fabric would cost retail? he didn't seem to mind and I suppose he is starting to understand the "fabric addiction"! LOL

I know, Rebecca! That one really shined for me...I'll have to give it some thought what to use that for. when I saw the blue stripe, I thought it might look nice in a braid/Hexagon lap quilt? Just ordered the 10' hexagon template the other day.....

What a score! Wow.

That's great! It was your lucky day.

Wow, that is really exciting, Sherri....I haven't been to any yard sales in a couple years because of my hip pain...now that I have had it replaced, I am going to try to go to some and can only hope to find some fabric stash that someone is getting rid of....
