Looking for a place where you can buy affordable sewing supplies? This infographic will guide you through.
While garage and yard sales may not be an everyday thing, you can find one by searching online. Do a quick search through Craigslist and Freecycle to find the most convenient locations. Always be careful of buying yarn, as old yarn tends to fray and snap.
Thrift stores are excellent places for sourcing affordable sewing materials. Check the boxes under the tables at the linen section, and have a good rummage for items that can be repurposed, such as vintage napkins, scarves, items with funky buttons or features. Be creative!
SENIOR CENTER SALES
This is another great place for finding unique things to repurpose. Think of all the unique things you can find to use on your next project.
BIG BOX STORES
Also, remember that stores like Hobby Lobby and Walmart normally have great deals on sewing materials and fabrics.
HAND ME DOWNS
Keep on the lookout for friends who used to sew and don't anymore. They may be willing to sell off, or even give you their supplies.
It may be fun to join a group of people who share your interests. In addition, you can find great items, while cleaning out your stash. It's a win-win situation!
