In February of this year, this turned up on my twitter feed (not following me on twitter? There’s a handy button to do just that right over there, to the right)(Follow me on Feedly, too, while you’re at it, and whatever else you’d like).
Although I had already moved to Munich, the Germ was still in England and the movers weren’t coming for another month. Thomas was offering about a yard of each of his fabrics for Andover (that’s nearly 120 yards!) for about £2.80 a yard, including shipping, which is about half of what I was paying for fabric in England, and about a tenth of what I’d pay in Germany. WELL. How could I refuse?! (Hint: I didn’t!) The Germ called to report that a very heavy box had come from Amazon, which surprised him, since he knows I don’t shop at Amazon, so I had to break the news to him gently.
You guys, this is so much fabric I had to keep it in its own cabinet because it wouldn’t fit in my sewing cabinet! Here are some of my favourites, but don’t be fooled—I love all of it.
I haven’t done any quilting with it, but had to dig in, so I made myself this bag from Fabric-by-Fabric One-Yard Wonders.
Thanks, Thomas! I can’t wait to play with the rest of it!
ps. If you’re not following Thomas on Twitter, well, you might want to. He’s @waycoolkid.
