Roundup: Two Successful Events

Dozens of people helped empty the TMC Volunteers’ workroom closet on February 26 when we gave away free bags of surplus dressmaking and decorator fabric during our Bags of Free Fabric event. The material had been leftover from our previous fundraising sales. Bags and boxes of surplus fabrics were piled in the hall just outside the workroom and, after an enthusiastic free-for-all, only a few bits and pieces remained. Even last-minute attendees found something special to take home.

And on March 1 & 2, crowds descended on the workroom for our Bargain Upholstery Bolts Sale. Aficionados picked up bargains on a wide range of fabrics, which were to be used in projects ranging from studio soundproofing to antique chair restoration. Kelly Mullan left the sale late Saturday with an armload of leathers, and by early Sunday afternoon had whipped up this wonderful change purse.
