The other night my guild had a "Yard Sale" with members renting a table to sell their quilting stuff. As usually happens at this event, there were LOTS of sellers and not so many buyers. It isn't advertised outside of the guild and that's too bad. It takes a lot of work to prepare and most people took much of their things home again. Girl Scouts, Girls Inc, Kids to Love, and area churches with sewing outreach programs would benefit greatly from being able to buy quality supplies at great prices. 

Our Table

I was only there to help a friend so had not brought much to sell. A few things sold but most came home. That's where you get lucky! 

Here are 10 items I think worthy of finding a good new home. If you see something you like, let me know right away. Local people: I can deliver. Out of town friends, shipping will be added, in the $15-20 range or more depending on weight. I do accept PayPal if you prefer that to sending a check in the mail. And if you are registered for my 3 great classes in Houston this October, I will be happy to bring your purchase to you there. Two of my 3 classes SOLD OUT on the first day!
