So I have long been involved in organizing the Fabric Flea Market. Annually since 1995. In addition to being a great fund-raiser, it's a stash transfer tool. We give the stash-busting vendors, most of whom have reached SABLE*, a way to recoup some of their investment from stash-building purchasers.
Maybe some of the purchasers don't realize that they, too, have reached SABLE.
Like me. I'm still in denial.
Without further ado: my haul from yesterday.
That's a roll of dark navy grosgrain ribbon at the bottom. It's rayon and wonderfully moldable with steam and heat, for facing waistbands and other behind-the scenes uses.
A really interesting wool (maybe a blend) woven with texture and stretch; crinkle rayon print; silk burnout (with white paper behind to show the pattern).
Nylon/lycra for workout clothes; 100% poly swimsuit fabric; silk crepe with zig-zag design; amazing coppery raincoat fabric; silk chiffon sari, with ombre border print.
Two stretch mesh prints; teal/brown viyella; wool/silk dress fabric (shirtdress?); more raincoating (the true colour is more turquoise).
Wool winder to turn 100% cashmere repurposed yarn and hand-spun, hand-dyed black mohair with wool/acrylic blend yarn into neat, usable balls.
There seem to be some colour themes developing. I knew about the brown and teal, and of course the orange, but the pink is a surprise to me.
What did you do yesterday?
