Explore Granny’s Cupboard at the Yardage Sale

By Susan Singh

At More Than Just a Yardage Sale, you’ll find an abundance of treasures at bargain prices. Several TMC Volunteers work each week to prepare for the sale: Michelle has been preparing vintage clothing, tablecloths, napkins and more; Jane has packaged up dozens of knitting needles, embroidery frames and weaving accessories; Helen has a cornucopia of unusual beads and jewelry findings; Nancy and Beryl specialize in decorator fabrics.

Other volunteers have worked on:

• Fine fabrics for sewing and quilting;

• Quality yarns for knitting, weaving and crochet;

• Vintage lace for ornaments, collage, cards and crafts;

• Eye-catching items for costumes, couturier, or interior design;

• Buttons and beads for that added touch; and

• Books and patterns on how to put them all together.


Here are just a few of the treasures you’ll find at this year’s Yardage Sale:
