I have a stash… which I prefer to call a collection…. of fabrics and textiles. The word “stash” kinda is an ugly term…. sort of demeaning. On the other hand a “collection” has value. I also feel like I have to hide my stash, but a collection can be out in public…
I do want to start using my collection. My collection has grown and I feel that I have enough that i could conceivably not add to this collection for an entire year and reduce this collection to a more managable size.
Starting A Collection
Reusing and putting to use all this good stuff is also frugal and thrifty! I acquired most of this collection by either hand-me downs, gifts a fabric, “scores” at fabric sales and purchasing good buys. I am always on the look out for “good deals of textiles at any estate, yard thrift and fabric stores sales. For years I have benefited by people just giving me unwanted “treasures” so now… I must use them.
This is why I actually started this web site to document what can be achieved WITHOUT spending a fortune.
