Went to Joann yesterday, in hopes of catching a good Columbus Day Sale. Ended up spending more than I usually do and still can't figure out why - that's just wrong! So, to redeem myself, today I went.... thrift shopping! Talking with a friend, I found out that years ago there used to be bazaars in temples here on Sundays, and they used to sell fabric. This thrift store is in a building next to a synagogue, and besides the dust, in terms of fabric all that's left are pieces, some small, some large, which are being sold for $5 a bagfull. I was able to find some interesting pieces, and they went straight to the washing machine!
E a liganete foi especialmente interessante, porque tinha um papel grampeado pedindo que fosse enviado depressa para o designer - aiai, agora olha a minha responsabilidade como designer! :D
The jade one feels like a thin, very fluid type of poly knit (and I already have plans for it), the plaid feels like shantung(!), the cream feels like a thick poly knit, the red one I think is cotton, there's a rib knit and the print one I'm pretty positive is cotton. Whenever I go there I wonder how in the world these things ended up there, and when? I'd love to know the story behind these fabrics.
And the jade one was especially interesting, because there was a card stapled to it saying "rush to designer" - now what a responsibility for me to be called a designer! :D
Dei um google nessa empresa Symphony e ainda está aberta, merecia uma visita prá agradecer a doação ao brechó!
I googled Symphony Fabrics and they're in business, should stop by one of these days to thank them for their donation to the thrift store!
E agora que todos já estão dormindo vou mudar de cadeira e continuar meu projetinho, que espero terminar hoje.... olha a dica
And now that everyone is sleeping, I'll change seats and work on my little project, which I hope to finish today... hint, hint:
