I am cleaning and organizing my sewing space in a big way. Part of the problem is that I have too much fabric! But wait, how can that be? After nearly 19 years of sewing, I’ve accumulated quite a stash, and frankly, I’m getting tired of much of it.
Update 9/7 – Thanks to all of you for helping me destash. I have now sold out! I shipped 34 boxes of stash in one day. That was very cleansing! Don’t worry, I’m sure I’ll need to do it again in another 20 years. :-)
So I’ve decided to box up as much of it as I can and offer some Mystery Stash Boxes to anyone who’s interested. These will be available for sale in my store for a limited time for just $39.95 per flate rate box-full (free shipping to the US). I’ll probably start with at least a dozen boxes and add more if need be.
Update: I just sold through the first batch in about 30 minutes so I put together a new batch for you guys! Thanks for helping me out!!
I just may sneak a wip, notion, book, or pattern in there as I’m cleaning out. I have a bunch of colorful threads I don’t need anymore so I may throw a few spools into the pile, too. Once, I get de-junking, there’s no stopping me!
I’m not organizing the fabrics in any way or sorting by color, so please don’t ask. :-) But I will cram in as much fabric and supplies as can fit in a box, and believe me, that’s quite a lot! The retail value can certainly be $100 or more! It’s all new fabric, premium cotton (maybe a few flannels). Most of it has already been prewashed.
So hopefully my
trash unwanted fabrics, threads, notions, etc. will be another person’s treasure! And yes, I’m happy to ship to you anywhere in the world. To buy my mystery stash, click here. Each box of fabric and supplies will be unique.
To answer the question of why? Simply put – because I want it gone NOW! I’d rather let it go cheap than take the time to organize and list each individual piece on ebay or etsy. So take advantage of my laziness and stock up while you can. :-)
Hopefully, I’ll have some beautiful sewing room “after” pictures to share soon! (Sorry, but I just can’t bear to share the “before’s”!
