My effort to De-Stash

You may have missed it, but I've decided to work on a Ten Step program for quilters that need to re-claim their sewing room and de-stash.  I'm currently working on my Step 1 De-Stash activities.

While I think I'll find more things I need to find a new home for, today I'm sharing insights on a few items that I'd like to eliminate from my stash.  Possibly you are interested in one or more of these items.  But, I'm also adding this to a linky where other quilters are also sharing insights on items that they'd like to eliminate from their stash.  You are invited to participate in this Spring De-Stash activity by sharing items you'd like to get rid of, as well as shopping for items you might like to buy from a fellow quilter, or negotiate a direct trade with them.  Thus, I hope you'll pop over and take a look at all of the entries by participants in this Spring De-Stash effort.  But, pop back as many of us will be updating our entries through the month.

Email me if you are interested in any of the items that I'd like to de-stash.

This 5" Charm Square collection includes 50 "fussy" cut pieces of tropical fabric, all 100% high quality cotton. $5

Fabric ***SOLD***

This fabric is a brocade type that looks like silk, but I truly am not certain what it is. I think it would make a cute purse, vest or other project. There is over a yard of fabric. $2

  • AccuQuilt die, new in unopened package
  • Bernina Compact Flash, new (never used)

Terms are for buyer to pay shipping.  I'm also open for trades and interested in the following:

Books: Great Sets or Setting Solutions,  published by Sharyn Craig

Book: All-in-One Quilter's Reference Tool, published by CT Pub

Just about any book or dvd on free-motion quilting or precision piecing, or machine embroidery designs.

Don't forget to go visit all the entries in this Spring De-Stash event, as you'll find many more items that quilting, sewing and/or embroidery enthusiasts may want.    This event will run thru March 15th, when I will host another updated Spring De-Stash event with more items from our sewing rooms that we all want to eliminate, to free up space.

Hannele said...

I wonder how this could be arranged: I'm in Finland and interested in your charm squares. I wonder how I could pay you? PayPal, credit card account?

Natasha said...

I am interested in the diamond template.

This is such a cool idea. Another reason to love the quilting community!

Deonn @ Quiltscapes said...

Would love your tapestry bag! Looks like just the thing to store/carry my serger.

Deb said...

I think I'm interested in the design wall, and maybe a few of the things you've not listed yet. I'm in San Diego north county - could we arrange to meet instead of shipping?

Can I get a list of the machine quilting DVD's and books you have available? I'm looking for good instructions to move to the front of the machine. I've been quilting mostly pantographs.

Thank you,

Can I get a list of the Machine Quilting DVD's and books you have?

Thank you!

Joyfully Stitching in MN your settings are at google default level, therefore you are what is called a no reply blogger (I can't send you an email reply).

My list of machine quilting DVDs and books can be found via a link of the page labeled "Free Motion Quilting Challenge". http://sewcalgal.blogspot.com/p/free-motion-quilt-challenge.html
