This time it’s all about texture! Join us this Thursday, August 15th between 2 and 8pm for a touchy-feely Sale Event. There will be lots of “oohing” and “aahing” and much fondling of fabrics.
Leather and Vinyl
We received quite a few pieces of medium sized, light weight leather hides in warm and cool colours including a few pieces of natural chamois leather. (Limit 2 per customer for the leather). Included in this donation is a fabulous assortment of good quality vinyl; pieces are large enough for bag making or jackets—available in a variety of colours, textures and weights.
Linen, Naturals and Wool
More “touchy-feely” natural fabric—check out the baskets of linen, wool, wool blends, cottons and rayons down the centre aisle. Don’t forget to visit the knits section for more naturals including cotton knits—stay “cool” baby!
Now this is some major “touchy-feely” – check out a table full of faux fur—tons of textures and colours, realistic looking fun furs and the outrageous for those special occasions – Hallowe’en beasty anyone?
Quilting Cottons and Bundles
They’re back—lovely quilt bundles, all colour coordinated and ready for you to whip up into a quilt square or cushion topper. Check out the rolls of quilting cottons to complete your project!
We love seeing what you all are making out there with your OSF fabric. At our last sale, one of our customers showed us the bag she made from home decor samples and a few tiny treasures. Check out the cream and gold bag here and the beautiful appliqued flowers – well done and thanks for sharing!
