Etsy Friday

25 01 2008

Following what I believe were 2 sleepless nights and some time spent on etsy (what a dangerous thing to do), 2 packages made their way to my post office.

After the first sleepless night one package came from Starlit Nest and had an assortment of fat quarters from Heather Bailey, Joel Dewberry and Alexander Henry.

After the second sleepless night I received another package, this one from Lucky Kaeru Fabric & Supplies. I had been wanting to get my hands on some of the Damask from Etsuko Furuya’s new collection and bought half a yard of it. While I was there I got my hands on a yard of Alexander Henry’s pears and apples fabric and a set of 3 fat quarters of Robert Kaufman’s owl fabric.

Both shipments were super fast and I received them 2 days I think after purchase. I would definitely buy from them again. Of course, I don’t know enough about these fabrics to know if what I paid was right but it seemed like the everyone selling fabric on etsy has about the same prices.

I also purchased a few weeks ago from my future LYS (also fabric store) a 1 yard each of 3 Amy Butler fabrics.

I’m really looking forward to be able to set up a sewing machine more permanently in my new apartment. It will definitely make it easier for me to sew and I’ll be able to spend more time at it and use up some of these beautiful fabrics I have. Also, I have to rationalize my dream of purchasing one of these beauties!

Lots of new fabrics

See you all on the flip side of the move!

Those are all so cool – I wish we had a local store near me that sold great fabric like that. Oh well, at least there is Etsy. I’m going to check out those sellers you mentioned.

I am SO sucked into this fabric/sewing thing lately. I actually signed up for a quilting class starting in April and am about to go crazy because I want to start now 🙂

I’ve got my eye on that same sewing machine! Any idea how much it costs? I hate that there aren’t any prices online–very annoying.

Good luck! Now you’ll have new rooms to sew and decorate. Very exciting!

Lovely fabrics! Can’t wait to see what you do with them.
Hope you have a good move! 😀
