But first, I wanted to put away the fabric I had recently purchased on my trip to SR Harris Fabric Outlet. That led to the decision to tidy up "just a bit". That led to pulling all of the fabric off of the closet shelves and out of the plastic bins. That led to "Oh my gosh! If I die before I clear this out everyone is going to come in here to clean up this room and shake there heads in wonder" (Except of course those of you that sew - you would understand!)
Some of the fabric stash - at least it helps insulate during the cold winter months.
Now, keep in mind, that all of this fabric is what is left after I donated a few bags to a lovely 20-something woman in my church. I found out recently that she enjoys sewing and I hoped that she would be able to make use of fabric I knew I would never, ever use - I mean c'mon, will I really use a piece of wool that is the wrong color for me just because it was imported from Ireland? And, I could tell she's one of us because her eyes light up at the mention of sewing and fabric.
Here's the fabric I gave her earlier - after today I have another few bags filled - hope she won't mind!
Not only do I have more fabric than I can ever hope to sew stored on these closet shelves, I have four more plastic bins bursting at the seams with fabric.
Oh, and I know why you've been having trouble finding black fabric in the fabric stores. Apparently I heard a rumor that black fabric wasn't going to be produced any longer so I stockpiled it - black linen, black wool, black cotton, black silk, black knit - you name it, I have it.
Some of the many pieces of black fabric that hiding in my closet.
What about you? I can't be the only fabric hoarder in the sewing community.Pin It
