Textile and Fiber Sale

Final week — Textile and Fiber Sale. Excellent values!
Years of travel and purchasing fabrics in villages around the world resulted in a fascinating textile collection and full closets which need to be cleared.  I have hundreds of textiles suitable for mounting, sewing, creating, quilts, and enjoyment.  Also handmade dolls from Bhutan, Tibet, Laos, Guatemala and a few other countries.
Textiles from Thailand, Laos, Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia, Burma, 
Tibet, India, Bhutan, Nepal, Kyrgyzstan
Peru, Guatemala
Felting supplies (including merino wool at $1 an ounce) and feltable fabrics
Silk cocoon strippings in various natural colors, throwsters waste, cocoon rods, and silk noils
Many different weights of chiffon in wonderful colors which were purchased when we lived in England from the Indian shops.  They are fantastic on art quilts and collages; plus they nuno felt so easily.  There are easily 100 different shades available.
