There is a Fabric sale on!
There is an urgency to get to this Sale. It may be some time before another one.
The store has Sale Banners everywhere.
It's dazzling and exciting.
Looking at the sale offerings is confusing.
Usually the Fabric is all on one table and different types of Fabric are lumped together......patterned, plains, cotton, polyester, stretch, woven, various mixed colours, fabric type not specified.... It's confusing. It's meant to be confusing!
Frenzy shopping means you purchase what the Fabric Shop wants to sell and not necessarily what you should be buying.
I'm not sure about you...but looking for space in my Fabric Collection is hilarious....there is no space available! However space does get made IF the Fabric is totally fabulous.
A few weeks ago I was in a Fabric Store and there was a Sale on. I felt my heart missing a few beats and that darn urgency to find "Gold!"
There were quite a few bolts that were put behind the counter for me. While I was waiting in line to be served I looked at the bolts and felt detached. Great news. The Time factor shook my need to have all of these "must have" Sale items. I did purchase some of the bolts of course....I am human! I really loved the Fabric I bought. Really loved!
Buying Fabric is fun!!
Buying Fabric that really isn't fabulous is not only a waste of money, it is a "Space Taker Upper."
Spending Time making this unsuitable Fabric into toiles is also a time waster. Unsuitable Fabric doesn't give anyone a clear idea if the style of the garment will suit and it won't be worn either. A Pattern can be amazing in the correct colour, composition, print and type of fabric....even a toile!
Buy Fabric on Sale but make sure it's Great Fabric that happens to be on Sale...not just good Fabric.
The Question I ask when I'm considering buying Fabric.. "Will I Love You in the morning?"
Great Fabric ticks all your boxes not just one or two.
