Oh my gosh!! I am blown away by the response to this post. I seriously anticipated maybe 10-20 donations. As of right now, we have received nearly 100 donations. Seriously, thank you for all the support!! Because of the overwhelming response I am going to have to put a hold on any more donations until I can get caught up. This is possibly going to take me a few weeks to get everything double checked, packed, and shipped. I want to make sure I am not leaving anyone off. Plus, I don’t think I could fit this many packages in my car to take to the post office.
Stay tuned for future destashings!
Let me get straight to the point. I want to give you my fabric! Yes, you read that right! Take my fabric! Please! You know you want it!
Why am I giving you my stash? A couple of nights ago on Twitter I shared a pic of my sewing room and the maybe 6 feet of space I had to walk around in. Then yesterday, I was trying to locate some particular fabric, which I never did find, and was stabbed in the toe by a straight pin in my fabric. Oh and I was wearing shoes at the time. Not cool.
My stash is getting out of control! I have been stressing about it and have not bought a great deal of fabric this year as a result. Now, I am not saying that is bad by any means, but I don’t want to stress about it anymore. Sewing is supposed to be relaxing and fun. I don’t want to feel like I can never keep up.
I am out of space to put my fabric away so it goes on top of any flat surface I can find. For real! These lovelies deserve to go to a seamstress who will actually use them.
So here is what I am proposing. If you want a fun mystery box of fabric from my stash, it is yours! I will pick a few pieces of goodies from my stash and ship it to you. Each box will have at least 3 yards of fabric plus some other fun sample fabrics. I am guessing that I can put some sort of sequin fabric in every box too! I am going to make that a personal challenge.
Now this can get expensive on my end for shipping all of these lovely goodies to you to make gorgeous things out of. I estimated it to be between $7-$10 based on weight for domestic. So what I am asking is that you make a small donation of $5.00 to our adoption fund to help cover shipping costs. I am willing to do international shipments with a larger donation. All the donations will stay in our adoption fund and shipping will still come out of my own pocket.
So what do you say? Are you in? I hope so, because of all these pics you see it does not even show all of my fabric stash. There is more! Can you believe it!
So, if you want some make a donation of $5.00 or more click on the Paypal link on the sidebar. Make sure you enter the address you want it shipped too and a note saying “Share your stash”.
Please help get the word out and share this post as well! I really want to de-stash and raise money for our adoption!
