Freecycle Fabric & Findings

First, I apologize for not posting. Pinterest changed the way they share links and I have yet to adapt. I have about 5 posts “pending” me correctly linking them. Sigh. Oh well, brain exercise is good for me.

On to the Freecycle news! A few weeks ago I was the lucky recipient of Betty’s fabric castaways. Oh how giddy I was! Most of it was holiday print but still, free is free! Betty said her mother had passed on and she was cleaning out her fabric stash. She said she would keep my number and call me when she had more.

Betty called me yesterday and I met up with her. She had a bag of zippers and lace bindings. Spools of thread and sewing machine needles. Of course a box of fabric was waiting for me. This time full of knits, cotton prints and velour. I am so excited! The funny thing is that I was having a bad day yesterday. I started sketching out some tote bag designs and she called. Perfect timing! What a wonderful way to turn my day around.

Do you Freecycle? Anyone else get something amazing on Freecycle? I saw a post requesting a serger. I think if you could get one of those for free, well, THAT would be amazing!

Have a blessed day ~lauraj

  1. Oh my goodness, yes, getting a serger for free would be truly amazing! I’m ashamed to admit it, but I haven’t been on Freecycle yet! I need to go check it out! Did you ever make anything out of the fabric? Maybe a cute tote bag? Would love to see it! Thanks again for stopping by my blog and leaving your sweet comment. Hope you’re having a great weekend!
