My destash fundraiser was a huge success thanks to all of you amazing fabric lovers! The fabric is packaged and U.S. destinations were sent today. International will go out on Monday because I arrived at the post office close to closing time. When they saw how many packages I had they wouldn't let me stand in line.
After shipping, shipping refunds, etsy fees, and paypal fees the total raised was $860.00!! Can you believe that? A little fabric and some nice people can make a big difference. Only 3 items are left in the shop. 3 items! I know I said that everything had to sell for the gray seeds raffle to happen but I'm thrilled so I am still going to raffle the FQ on March 30. I also have that "ooo, so close" feeling with the amount raised so I plan to add a few more items to the shop to try and bring the total to $1000 even.
Thank you so much to everyone who purchased something. I hope that you are happy with your purchase and have a lovely time sewing. It was very cathartic to let go of so many favourite pieces. While I was packing them, I only felt a pang of regret twice. It was really hard to let the multi-coloured buttons on cream and the swell charm packs go. But, I pressed on and it's for the better.
If you decide to do a destash fundraiser in the future, please let me know. I would love to support you!
