Today you can get a free 8×8 inch swatch of Spoonflower’s new fabric sport lycra (free shipping too!) all you need to do is go to spoonflower, pick your fabric, add a swatch size in the sport lycra and you will see it says get your free swatch.
It’s free until Wednesday Aug 5th at 12 EDT, so hurry!
All the sales I’ve been too are generally set up the same way. There are tables with fabric divided into cottons, wools, silks, etc. Then there is usually a section with small scrap cuts of fabric bagged in little bundles.
Now besides fabric you can find a million other craft supplies, patterns, books, yarn, knitting needles, crochet hooks, sewing machines, and any other sewing notion you can think of. This sale had boxes set up in a craft area that you had to dig through to see what treasure might be inside. I didn’t end up finding too much fabric I liked, but got a few smaller pieces. I did get some pretty buttons, dolls, cute embroidered animals, doll eyes, and I’ve taken a few photos to show you what I bought.
I also took a few phone photos when I was at the sale, but at times it was a crowded hot jumble so the photos are not the best.
If you want to see some of my previous fabric fair experiences you can find them all here:
