OSF is jam-packed with fabric and cool sewing notions right now. If you’re thinking of making presents for the holidays, now’s the time to get your reclaimed fabric. With a little creativity, you can make beautiful gifts for under $5.00 using OSF supplies.
Look at this gorgeous piece of heavyweight cobalt blue wool. If you finished the edges with a simple blanket stitch, you could make a beautiful gift for under $5.00!

Here’s a sneak peak of some of the stuff you’ll find at our upcoming November sales.
Fluro green and yellow outwear material. Make a high-vis dog coat!
Bolts of floral print
big splashy floral
Golden retriever fun fur.

A paisley stretch print in autumn colors.
Coffee bean sacks. I would reupholster an ottoman in this.
Everyone loves chambray.
reflective high-vis piping. Make yourself a running jacket or a super-safe coat for a kid or dog.
We have lots of people requesting a place to take their old sheets and towels. One of our goals is to one day be recycling textiles, but we are not there yet. So the question is – what can you do with your old sheets or towels or where can you take them? We all know that the last place we want to see worn out, but still usable items, is in the landfill. If your linens are still usable (ie. no holes or stains, or completely threadbare), you can take them to a charity shop such as the Salvation Army for someone else to use.
