Ramblings of a passionate crafter whether it be sewing, scrapbooking, or machine knitting
That was fun!
Great haul - nothing like some great vintagey fabric.
That just made me want to go to the thrift shop with you! Great haul!
LOVED THE VIDEO! I too live near a Sal. Army and found a wonderful 4yd. piece of teal/grey tweed!!
Score!!! You found some great things.
The lining looks like Bemberg rayon. You can do a burn test to see if it's rayon. If it is, then you got a very good deal because Bemberg easily retails from $6 - $10 per yard.
Oh and nice haul! Where is this SA??
You got some good stuff. I have more success with patterns than fabric at thrift stores. Love the bold print and the patterned (maroon and white looking) fabric! Nice haul!
Great finds, I love thrift stores, but there only one near me (SA) and there are several Goodwills within a ten mile radius that I frequent but hardly any fabric.
That's a good SA with all that fabric! The SA here just opened a new shop, you have inspired me to check it out soon!
"I watch Hoarders, and that keeps me from bringing all those sewing machines home." HAHAHAHA! I have to physically restrain my husband from buying every sewing machine we see. We've found a couple of keepers, but he is like a little puppy, finding sewing things he thinks I'll like and dragging me over to look at them. Because some of the items have been real treasures, I try to encourage him as much as possible, but my new thrifting mantra is "No more sewing machines."
Great video. I really enjoyed seeing your haul. I never, ever see fabric at a thrift store. Good for you!
