This weekend was the Textile Center’s annual fundraiser, the Garage Sale. We think it is the worlds largest textile garage sale. Crowds kept away a little bit because it was rainy/snowy/cold but I got a few treasures.
* A Liberty of London paisley (swoon!) This fabric is amazing – finely woven, soft as anything. I am making a really nice blouse with it.
* Multiple skeins of a couple of pretty wool yarns.
* a double knit polyester and a brown and white heavy woven (skirts)
I also forgot to photograph a nice grey with raspberry colored polkadots which will make a great lining for something and 3 nice pieces of plain colored wool in deep sky blue, merlot and black.
The grand total – 11 pieces of fabric (2-4 yards each), 6 skeins of yarn & a handful of vintage silk/poly scarves = $100.
I also donated 4 trashbags full from my studio. Hooray!
