No, drat. Nearly a milestone.

I have finished cataloging all of the plastic-binned fabric for sale, save for the one filled with quilting cotton. 263 pieces for sale so far, plus all the scraps.* That's half a closet of silks and velvets, eleven 66-quart bins of fabric pieces, and three bins of scraps, all for sale.

I've also found a distressing number of incomplete projects, completed garments that no longer fit, random patterns, and weird-ass shit people have given me because "hey, you sew, I have this XX that was my mother/aunt/neighbor's..."

[livejournal.com profile] callistotoni was by yesterday and got to see some of the bounty. She said a lot of "L needs this" and "C needs that" and "this is J's color palate". I hope y'all come by and concur :-)

* Darn you, 2 yard long strip that's 14 inches wide. And you, the diamond-shaped yard-long piece. You're too large to be discarded as scrap, but not large enough to make a garment. You know who you are.

Right. But if you want to come by sooner, my doors are open!

Of course, after I finish cataloging the quilting cotton I move on to trims and buttons.

Week nights Tu-Wed-Th before 8/8:30 work for me. I have the weekend after Crown available, too.

Soon as I figure out my work schedule, I'll make an appointment to come shop. I have that half-finished problem, too. I've given away everything that when finished won't fit me; now I'm left with clothes and a budget that have seen better days, so I'd rather be buying from people I know and keeping the money in the family.
