There was so much fabric to rummage through. Here are our lovely finds. These are some beautiful woolens in my favorite wine tones. About 9 yards. The pale fabric is pink.
My daughter loved these cottons.
We bought yards of trim. Note how old the green hem tape is. There are yards and yards of white lace.
Look at this pack of knitting needles. I don't even knit...yet. More on that in a future post. There are at least 15 pairs of needles from size 1 to 11.
How much did almost 20 yards of fabric, multiple packages of trim, and all those knitting needles set me back? $42.00! That is great considering that a good woolen will be somewhere in the full price range of $15 to $30 per yard.
The woman I purchased these goodies from said that the fabric and notions were her mother's who passed away in November. She had already taken half the stash of fabric for herself. She thought this would be a good way to share the joy that her mother had sewing and spread it to other seamstresses who share the same love. That was a beautiful sentiment.
As we were leaving the woman yelled to me, "I found some more woolens!" I didn't go back. It was tempting and such a great price, but if I'm not careful, my children some day will have to have a fabric yard sale for me!
