Just recieved your e-mail newsletter with a topic of “using up your fabric stash”;
Here is the thing.
Yes, I do have a stash, some of, may possibly be older than you are. Very little of it, however, is “out of fashion polyester double knits” or cheap “bargan bin finds”. As I lovingly sort through it, on occasion, I almost always remember where and when I bought it. Not one single piece do I want to throw away, give to charity, or SEW INTO A TOTE BAG OR DECORATOR PILLOW.
If I’d wanted to do any of that, I would have, during one of my annual “shake out and refold” trips down memory lane.
So, I strongly urge you to stay on topic. My topic of interest being the highest and best examples of the dressmaker’s art, past, present, and not too far into the future. When I select one of my precious yardages to cut into and make up, I want to employ the finest quality of workmanship, I am caprable of achieving.
I look to Threads to guide me up that higher road. Gail
