If you planned on going to the the fabric and craft sale shown below, but haven't been yet- HURRY UP! Or you will seriously miss out on everything!

I was there 20 minutes after opening, and it was busy. People were carrying bolts and armloads of yummy fabric, and every notion under the sun too.

I got quite a bit off stuff, I must admit. I started to get excitedly carried away. I only stopped looking because I couldn't carry any more, or my arms would have fallen off!

The haul:
  • About 20m of chocolate brown brushed drill- $10. Bargain!!
  • 4m pink/white/ grey check wool- $7
  • 5+m brown check soft wool- $18 (this is divinely soft)
  • 2m grey drill
  • 3m pink trackie material
  • 2m lightweight purple linen
  • embroidery hoop
  • and 12 zippers
All for just under $40!

Now that I've got it, what to do with it?????

Edit: If you do decide to go, it's cash only. I found out the hard way.

Ooooo.... very jealous right now. I wish I lived near something like that! Looks like you'll be making a lot of warm winter clothes!

Score! Pity it's the absolute opposite end of Melbourne to me.
What to do... no idea - I'm all about collecting and adding to the stash just in case I need it..he he he

I would have loved to have gone to that, but sadly it's a little too far away :o(

That's a LOT of fabric you have to play with!!

Eeek! All that wool for such a bargin price would get me so excited! I make little coats for little people from vintage 40's/50's patterns. If you ever decide to sell a metre or so of that check wool, drop me a line. It looks so soft. Perfect for a little boys coat...
