    About a year ago I was looking for teal velvet to use in a quilt for my daughter. Couldn't find it anywhere. If you decide you just don't need the teal velvet pm me, and we'll talk!!

    I personally would grab it. I have a disease which is commonly known to a lot of quilters...My name is Sharon and I am a "Fabriholic"! I would buy it for the older fabrics since I LOVE vintage fabrics. I would bring it all home and spread it out and just roll around on it! Peach would be right there with me!

    lol...The vintage part intriqued me too as I haven't found any around here. My mom is excited to see it all too.

    BTW, my hometown is Yorkville, TN...lol It is a super small town of about 300 people.

    I would be really intersted as I love the color of the velvet and velvet in general and go throught it all and find homes for what you don't want.

    I love to sew everything, from quilts to clothes to bags to pillow covers, so I am sure I can find something to make out of these. I am also excited about the zippers, I have seen those as she had some for sale on her shop. They are 7" and 9" so they would make good tote zippers or pouches.

    I will try to take pictures tomorrow (or tonight) and let ya'll know.

    Consider contacting your local Little Theatre group or a local college. They ALWAYS need exotic fabrics and can probably rustle up the $$ to purchase it.

    Me either -then I'd feel burdened to use fabric I didn't want, but got a good deal on, and that really takes the wind out of my sails! Pass.

    It absolutely doesn't sound like something I'd use for quilting. I wouldn't even take it if she was giving it away!

    Well I took it. There is about 4 different colors of velvet, most a yard of (give or take since she did cut from it). Also, several solid colors and that is just 3 boxes I have gone through. Several scrap pieces but big enough for totes or pouches. In the small box of knick knacks were some Pinking Shears by Fiskars (cut good) and a Singer Side Cutter, lots of old buttons (which my mom loves!). I still have 5 more boxes to go through but I am doing it in spurts as I am washing everything.

    I didn't get the dress form as I mostly make clothes for my daughter who is 4 1/2 and I just use her. lol

    It's pretty cheap so you have to decide if you would use it. I'd probably say yes, and choose what you can use and move the rest along. Think $10/yard for cotton fabrics and if you only used 5-6 yards, it'd at least be a break even deal. Then, because this many boxes of fabric has TONS of fabric in it, I'm sure you'd get your money back. I'd probably say yes...in fact, I know I would.

    I`ve seen velvet in quilts, it`s not for me. But if you make a lot of purses or eye glass cases, or even Barbie Doll dresses, you could use some, or do you know people that sew cloths for childern? Personally I don`t have room to store it, and it would just get older in the boxes.

    Well.....I was going to say I'd have to look at it first. I love, love crazy quilts and it sounds like there are some fabrics, and adornments that would work. I think I'm speaking for many of us ....pictures please.

    I would buy it, but I also make medieval garb and so am very likely to use velvets and other specialty fabrics. Might be nice for a crazy quilt
