Score!

Score!  After sew-in today, I stopped at a local thrift store.  After finding some great yardage of 3 different 'sewing themed' fabrics, I turned the corner and saw 3 HUGE  (comforter size) bags stuffed with fabrics.  I could tell that there was lots more 'sewing themed' fabrics in each bag.  The bags are stapled shut, so, you don't really know what you are getting until you get home.  Well.......

fabrics from the thrift store
The 2 stacks on the left are all sewing themed fabrics.  Several of them are 3-6 yards of the same print.  Some are the same line of fabrics, but in 3 different colorways (green, light blue and dark blue/reds).  The stack on the right is all quilting cottons, too, from Christmas, to children's prints, etc.  One is even an Egyptian themed print. 

There were lots of fabrics that were not quilting cottons.  I don't sew clothes, so, I'll pass these on at the next guild meeting.  There are satins, corduroys, and lots of other clothing fabrics, along with some cottons that I know I won't ever use (not my colors or styles). 

2 bags of fabrics to pass on (garment fabrics, etc)
Between 3 large bags of fabric, and the yardage that I'd already grabbed, I still spent less than $30 for all of it!  SCORE!  I've never had such a great day, fabric wise. 

Now to figure out how to use all this fabric......  It will take me quite a while, I'm sure.

  1. What a great find you ran into! It probably was a little like Christmas waiting until you got home to see what you got.

  2. What a fantastic score indeed! We have a new thrift store opened in our town and I have been scoping for fabrics, but none yet.

  3. Yay! I love when that happens! I bought a bag of fabric at a thrift store that yielded 8 yards of good quilting cottons for a whopping $2...so fun!

  6. Wow, now you can make a sewing themed quilt and all kinds of other fun stuff! At a shop you would have only gotten 3 yards for $30!
