How to Shop the Yardage Sale

The annual More Than Just a Yardage Sale is a bargain-hunter’s paradise. But you don’t have to be the first in line to get great deals.

In fact, there’s no right or wrong time to attend the Sale. We’ve got thousands of dressmaking and decorator fabrics, household linens, yarns, books, beads, buttons, quilting fabrics and craft supplies. Throughout the two-day event, the sales tables are regularly refreshed with new items – including a huge supply of quality yarns.

Our busy time tends to be Friday around noon when nearby office workers drop by during their lunch hour. Friday afternoon is a good time for serious shoppers to browse the full range of what’s available. Fashion students looking for fabrics for school projects, enjoy the quiet of Saturday morning to consult with the sales volunteers (many of whom are accomplished artists). And it’s not just crafters who enjoy the sale – books, household items and beads make wonderful one-of-a-kind gifts.
