Hey, Cross Stitchers!

Several years ago, I inherited a large stash of cross stitch items when someone passed away. There were cross stitch kits, stamped cross stitch kits, hard cover books, pamphlets and patterns that fill up a milk crate and lots and lots of miscellaneous cross stitch fabric.

Now, I like to cross stitch, but not this much! I have gone through everything and taken out what I really like and would make if I get back into cross stitching in the future. And I have sold all the kits that I didn't want to keep and I am left with the books, pamphlets, patterns and fabric.

I am thinking that someone out there might possibly have a use for this fabric. Please!! Someone have use for this fabric!

I have it all listed on Craigslist, but I thought that if I showed some pictures here there might be a reader who would be in the market for it. Or who might know someone who knows someone who has a mother who needs it all.

And here is where it gets interesting... there is so much cross stitch fabric, but the only stuff that I am familiar with is Aida. There are many sizes of Aida, but I think there is linen, even weave and Hardinger, too. And many colors!

Most of this below is larger pieces. Like 1 yard cuts of Aida.

I am willing to ship and negotiate. I had things priced for the yard sales and sold a bit of it, but there is still a lot left. Anyone interested?

email me, I don't cross stitch but a good friend of mine does, this might make a fun b-day surprise for her. do you barter? I have a ton of fabric, yardage and/or scraps if you want to trade. $$ is OK too- lol

I'm interested in the fabric (is that what it's called)! What are you asking?

Oh my goodness so much stuff.....I hate to think all of the fabric and projects I am going to leave behind for someone to get rid of :0). Good luck with the sales.

Happy Sewing
