CF host: Stash Swap!

CF hosts: Stash Swap!

By Meghan Hart


fabric stashColorado Fabrics hosted our first Fabric Stash Swap on Saturday, January 27 and it was a raging success! We had never done one of these before and we were very excited. The event was FREE, and was a great opportunity to switch up your fabric stash while also meeting other interesting folks in the sewing community.

So, what could you have expected at the Stash Swap? People from all different sewing backgrounds brought in fabric they no longer needed and offered it for sale or trade. You were able to find anything from quilting cottons, to home decorating, to high-end special occasion pieces- and much, much more. Pieces generally range in size from small (ideal for patchwork, details and accents) all the way to several yards (ready for anything!). The fun is in not knowing what treasures you will find!

Everyone is welcome to attend this free event, whether you are hoping to sell, buy, or both. Colorado Fabrics rents out tables to those who need a place to sell their stash. The next Stash Swap will be June 2, 2018, and we will be providing more tables and extending the swap outside. You are still welcome to carry in-hand whatever fabrics you want to offer, or feel free to come empty-handed and just do some shopping! This will be your chance to exchange, build, or purge your stash as you wish.

The ground rules are:

  • Fabric must be clean, smoke-free, pet-free (fashion, home decor, quilting, bridal, etc.)
  • If you plan on selling/buying YOU MUST PROVIDE YOUR OWN CHANGE. We will not make change for this event. No exceptions.
  • Fabric must be clean and pre-priced, if selling.
  • All transactions are strictly between swappers, so bring your negotiation skills!

Colorado Fabrics proudly hosts the Stash Swap, but are not participating in the event. You are responsible for your fabrics, money, and any arrangements made. 

Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram so that when we arrange the next get-together, you’ll see it there first!

***Colorado Fabrics will gladly accept donations of any fabrics you don’t want at the end of the swap. We put donations to good use through local sewing charities and the local organization “We Made This”.
