So. That auction? I won the Big Lot. I have lots and lots of fabric. This was a defunct drapery place. Much of this is “black-out” fabric – heavy polyester knit, printed on one side and white on the other. A couple of sheers. A few wovens. Send me a pm, and we can coordinate meeting at my storage unit.
what type of materials beth?
Most heavy polyester knit. A few others. The polyester is “black-out fabric” for curtains.
Any idea roughly how much could be on a “full roll”?
I am interested… but I don’t have a project for it so would probably just end up in my storage unit
Well, I was trying to google it, and it’s both too generic and too specific. 10 yards or more. A standard bolt is 10 yds, but rolls are kind of a different thing. Most of these are cut rolls, anywhere from 1 to 8 or 9.
I have a project that requires about 13 yards, so it sounds like that’s a bit beyond possible.
For the blackout stuff (which seems to be polyester triple-knit), I’ve got some duplicates.
I feel your pain (from the leather sale last year)
I would be interested in some of it for sure. Don’t let me forget to bring it up next time I’m up at the space with you
I’ve been wanting to learn how to sew and make some really basic throw pillows and maybe even curtains (since you mentioned black-out material)
I’d be interested in looking at the fabric!
I would be interested in anything that looks like old speaker cloth. Have an antique radio that needs restoration.
That thin black, kinda canvas looking stuff? I’ll look for that. I don’t recall, but we were tossing rolls in a bit of a rush.
You don’t happen to have any cotton/canvas left? I’ve finally got a project for it
I’m not sure. The majority of what I got was the black-out fabric, which is 100% polyester. I lost the auction for the humongous roll of cotton. Give the weather a chance to warm up, and I’ll go check the storage building. I need to do that anyway.
Yeah no worries I wasn’t expecting anything until the weather clears
