Just a suggestion…….
This is a great weekend to go through your sewing area and see if you have any quilty type items that you may want to de-stash. Monday kicks off our Fall De-Stash sale where quilters world wide are welcome to link up and sale things, as well as do some shopping.
The Fall De-Stash is a free event for bloggers and non-bloggers, but I will ask for those in the business to donate $5 for each link up. And, your donation will go to the Quilter’s Bee Giving Charity Fundraiser, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting four non-profit charities. So, take time to get your de-stash collection ready.
Shoppers might find some great deals on patterns, kits, pre-cuts, fabric, books, CDs/DVDs, table toppers and more. I’m certainly hoping to find some red & white pre-cuts, as well as some fun patterns.
Maybe you have some fabric, quilt kits or want to use your die cutting to cut some of your stash to sell.
Maybe you have some tools, such as rulers or templates, possibly AccuQuilt dies, or other items that you are not using and would like to turn into cash.
Maybe you have some things taking up space, such as sewing machines, embroidery machines, sergers, electronic cutting machines, etc. that you would like to get rid of so you can use that space for something else.
You can keep 100% of the proceeds from your sale. But sellers are responsible for setting terms and shipping items. As such, you can negotiate if your price includes shipping or if the buyer needs to pay for shipping. Just try to be as clear as you can and have a way to be contacted.
Bloggers are encouraged to post the badge for this event, but not required. Bloggers will need to have their blog post dated October 14th or during the week (no old or early posts) AND have a link back to the sale linky on Fingertip Shopping that will be released Monday, October 14th. By everyone including a link back to the main post, which will have a linky setup and we all encourage our readers to check out all the items for sale (linked up) hopefully we’ll everyone will have a good de-stash next week.
Non-Bloggers can upload photos of the items they have for sale to Flickr. Then be sure to add a linky to your direct photo, which has description, pricing, terms (all the details the bloggers put in their post) in the comments under your photo on flickr.
Bloggers and non-Bloggers can keep 100% of their sales, or they can opt to donate funds to the Quilter’s Bee Giving fundraising event (picking a charity of your choice). For each $1 you donate you will be given a raffle ticket for a drawing for a special prize. Please email me for more info on how to get your raffle tickets.
Those in the business that want to add a link to items that they may have for sale on their ETSY site or online store are invited to participate, but they will need to donate $5 per link to one of the four charities to be showcased in the Quilter’s Bee Giving Charity Fundraiser.
So, I hope you’ll take a look at your Stash this weekend and consider joining the De-Stash Party at Fingertip Shopping this coming week.
