There is a sale in my Rag Rescue shop at Etsy. ( click the link above.
Everything is reduced by 15% 

Having just cleared out my stock room I realised that I had so many lovely vintage fabrics etc to offer to everyone. 

When looking in etsy shops I never find time to look at pages and pages of item. This is why I thought I'd try to sell as much of the vintage fabrics, lace, vintage goods and haberdashery by having a sale. This will help me and also the buyers will get bargains.
The sale runs until 1st December so plenty of time to view the items.
Below are a few examples of what are available at the moment.

A post from windy Morecambe

It seems an absolute age since I wrote a post on here. I've had lots of family commitments this year and what with one thing and another time just flew by.
I decided yesterday to start putting some items in my Rag Rescue etsy shop, getting ready for when people either want to start making Christmas presents or making up a gift  parcel for their sewing enthusiastic friends.
Here are a couple of the fabrics you will find in the shop.

Rare vintage fabric with Rupert Bear design

A wonderful vintage fabric with the design of Rupert Bear. 
  I am told that this is a rare fabric design. I am thinking that it may have been designed by Alex Cubie in the mid 70's .The colours are slightly more vibrant than the earlier ones I've had before and the lines around the characters are bolder.
Measures 59cms x 52/50cms (23.2" x 20.5/19.7")

Vintage French fabric with pink roses

 There is the most superb design of trailing roses on this vintage French fabric.

The light was bad today and you will notice a difference in colour in some of the photo's. I apologise for this. The true colours ad pale pinks with a ruby pink for the stripes.
