Free Fabric Giveway!
I heard the siren call and couldn't resist any longer.
So the stars aligned and I finally attended the semi regular giveaway put on by a couple that really likes to recycle. They travel to San Francisco to get the display samples from interior design companies, spread it out on tables in their house, and then give it away to people who want it. Otherwise it would all get thrown away! Brilliant, eh?

Can you imagine? All this beautiful silk? In the landfill?
Or all this linen, which I am going to try dyeing and painting and stamping.
One of the things I wanted to work on this year was trying sheers in some of my work. Here is some.
Very pleased with what I was able to find, and I've already begun using some of it. Sure it is a bit of a hassle to take tags, and gluey stickers off, but hey, it is free, and it is staying out of the landfill...
