Gear Up For Our 15th Annual More Than Just a Yardage Sale

The Textile Museum of Canada’s 15th annual More Than Just a Yardage Sale takes place Friday, May 28 and Saturday May 29. Volunteers are busy sorting through an enormous collection of beads, yarn, fabrics, notions, craft supplies, books, patterns, magazines and household textiles.

We need  your help getting the word out…
