A friend phoned in high excitement to alert me to a fabric find at Vinnies in Pinewood. It was too late in the day to make it up there, but I was on their doorstep first thing the next morning (even before the shop was open, because I thought opening time was 9.30 rather than 10!)

Look what I found:



A bolt (or perhaps, part bolt) of John Kaldor fabric in a pinky-red and white houndstooth. There's at least 10 metres, maybe more, on there. A mere $10! Enough fabric to make several garments, methinks.

Also:


A metre of quilting cotton featuring cats for $1, a pretty silk scarf with a maple leaf and "Quebec, Canada" (silk and a Canadian association, might have been meant for me) $2, and a glass and faux pearl beaded necklace also $2.

Plus my friend bought some fabric for me, below - there's about 4m. I'm a lucky crafter :)
These treasures should keep me busy for a while!

Oh wow, you really struck gold there! It is incredible what people bring into opshops - patchwork fabric is not cheap, and you'd think they could give it to a patchworkers group to use for charity quilts. But then we wouldn't get it, would we ;-)

I was at Pinewood about two weeks after this post was written, and had to go and check Vinnies! Nothing left though..you just gotta be in the right place at the right time, don't you?
