    What I found on Craig's List! You can go too!

    I am visiting DD near Denver and found an ad on Craig's list for fabric for sale. I contacted her and went to see what she had. She has her friend's mother's entire stash for sale, and it is a BIG stash! She is charging about $25 for a tub of fabric and she probably has 30 or 40 tubs full of fabric. (Also - you can create your own tub full. You don't have to take what she has put into one tub.) She also has several sewing machines, including 2 embroidery machines, (one is a Disney embroidery machine), a case of baby quilt size " Soft n Bright" batting and several tubs full of yarn. There were also two tubs full of quilting books.

    Since I flew here, I was rather limited in what I could take home in my luggage, but I still managed to spend $40. It is great fabric!

    I asked her if she was OK with me putting this info on here and she was happy with the idea!

    So, she is located near the intersection of I470 and Jewell Road in Aurora. Her phone number is - 303-981-3701. Good luck! There is a LOT of nice fabric!

    Here is a link to the actual Craig's List ad if you want to see it.

    That is a good deal but I would hesitate putting her personal phone number on here. Too public for me.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    I had asked her about that and she was fine with it.

    Wow, I wished I lived a whole lot closer, but maybe it's a good thing, since I don't have any room for any more fabric or machines. LOL

    When I was in Chicago this summer I brought a lot of fabric from Hancock that was 90% off. You can ship it seperately which is cheaper and also buy some of those vaccum bags put all the fabric in it and use a vaccum cleaner to suck the air out. Wherever there's a will, there's a way. Nice deal.

    Oh Nonda! I am so glad that you got, or are going to get some of that fabric too! I hope you like what was picked out for you! I don't think there was much of any fabric there that I would not have taken! It was all so pretty or cute, or both! When will you be able to go get it? I hope soon!
    I ended up having to leave some of my fabric at my daughter's house. I will bring the rest of it home on my next trip to Denver.

    Good luck with your new stash! Isn't it fun to add to your stash like this?
