There is an event this Saturday that involves fiber and it's production from field to loom to the dye vats. This opportunity came about suddenly so I have to move fast.
I have been systematically digging out all the hand dyed fabs and silk scarves that have been taking up space and washing them, ironing them, folding them and putting them in a big box.
When someone does something nice for me, I let them chose a scarf. When I go somewhere, I take a hostess gift which is a silk scarf. When it is someones birthday- they chose a scarf. When someone who does fiber art isn't looking, I deposit fat quarters on their doorstep, ring the bell and run away. How fun is that? Very fun.
So this week, I have been pulling out fabs that were duds, experimental, ends of runs, and just stuff I have had around the Dye Studio for eons. I have washed it, overdyed it, cut it up and am ready to sell it. I had NO idea how much stuff I had in boxes and stuffed under tables and on the shelves. Here is almost all of it. It's hard to see the immensity of the pile. I am going to be selling it all, even the scarves for half price. Hopefully, it will go fast and I'll be done.
It feels so good to have some breathing room but best of all, it feels great to be selling it all off to good homes. Hopefully, this fabric will be turned into fiber art which in turn will make more people happy and productive.
I'll let you know how it goes.
