Just looking at these fabrics makes my heart beat faster. Silks from Thailand embroideries from India, velvets from England and Italy, samples of fabrics that once sold for 100s of dollars a yard.
Plus funky vintage cottons and trims.
And all I paid was $21.oo.
That’s not a misprint. I got all this for two ten-dollar bills and a 1.
No wonder the Scrap Exchange Creative Reuse Center in Durham, NC is my favorite source for recycled fabrics.
The Scarp holds two special fabric sales a year–Spring and Fall. But last Friday was the first fabric sale in their new, much larger location. More room, more bins and they added trims and yarn.
Best sale ever, and as a life-long seamstress, fabric collector and textile artist, I should know.
Thanks, Scrap Exchange! Can’t wait to dive into these awesome fabrics and make more of my Kiki’s Rewind Designs.
