Nancy Hartness: November 2007 Archives
Every Fall and Spring Fabric.com has a huge warehouse sale. Last weekend, we had our fall event. We sell end rolls, returns, slightly damaged, etc. fabric at drastically reduced prices. For those lucky enough to live in the
Last Spring I had the pleasure of meeting a very memorable group of sewers ( If I did not think I would look like a fool, I would invite myself to their sewing sessions). They kept returning to my table with the best fabrics... Alexander Henry, Amy Butler, Moda, on and on. I was very impressed with their keen eye and tenacity. Even though CJ (ring leader), Shannon, Maribel and Winnie were 50th in line this year and a stones throw behind their "warehouse sale shopping nemesis" they managed to find their magic and appear at my table all morning with incredible fabrics. I just had to know how they did this...Before the sale started I didn't find these beautiful fabrics for my own stash! So I observed their behavior and was able to pick up on a few of their methods. They also shared a few of their secrets with me. Of course I cannot disclose this highly sensitive information with you but let's just say these chicks are smart! I can however share some of their creations from the great bargains they purchased from our sale. After hugs goodbye to my special girls I made them promise to send me pictures. CJ and Shannon sent me these photos of clothes they made for their children from the warehouse sale last Spring. Wow what talent...not to mention adorable models!
Fabric.com has the best customers!
