Attention, my fellow Seattlites, Sleepless and Sewing in Seattle. I received an email announcement from a quilter friend. (<-- You may have met her on my blog.) When I opened it up and read it, I said, uh oh.
Apparently, you can consign and/or shop. They have a huge spring sale event coming up on May 31 & June 1. No way I can avoid going to this. I won't be consigning, but I will be shopping, well, at least window shopping.
I went to check on their website. It is called Our Fabric Stash.
FINALLY... A Place for STASH-aHOLics!
Be sure to visit our flagship location today
Our Fabric Stash, an innovative, eco-friendly fabric consignment shop, designed for TODAY's STASH-aHOLic. Stir your creative juices, organize, share, and grow your fabric stash. Experience the "art of consigning fabrics, notions, and textile-related supplies "turning your accumulated stash into cash".
That flagship location is in Seattle's International District. (A Fab place to get lunch/dinner. I mean, really.) They also have a facebook page. I don't know much about it, but here is their "how it works" page. Sounds like a fabulous idea. Putting your 'sleeping' stash to work by offering to others who may find it a precious bargain, and turning your stash to cash.
I wonder if there are other chapters of this OurFabricStash in other cities/states. Perhaps you may start something like this in your city............. I totally support it! This is true Urban Recycling!
Happy Tax Day, everyone. If you are receiving a refund, treat yourself to, well, a fabric shopping trip. If you are working hard to finish yours, reward yourself with a fabric shopping when you are done! Either that or a new vintage sewing machine. yup.
*Seattle area bloggers -- feel free to link to my blog and spread the word. Maybe we will somewhat organize a meet-up? I'll work on that! ; )
