Goodbye Fabric Books!!

A few weeks ago when I decided to clean out my office and paint, that meant I had to carry hundreds and hundreds of fabric books out of the room. UGH!! This is a very long and tedious process. Over the past year I have collected quite a collection of fabric and trim books. Some of them I use ALL the time and others I had to knock dust off of. It got me thinking about my fabric needs and how little space I really have in my office for shelves of books. While it is nice to have such a selection of amazing fabric books, I just don't NEED all this stuff!! It was time to make some hard decisions. I had to part with some of the books!!! This is really hard for me as I LOVE fabric and having it surrounding me in my office is truly inspiring. However, I felt like the walls were closing in on me!! After looking through 100's of books, literally, I ended up with only one shelving unit full of books!! Its amazing and my office is HUGE now!! I love it!! And I am left with the books I use the most and still inspire me!!


If any of you are looking for fabric or have a fabric that is "to the trade only" please let me know!! I would love to help you out!!! What good is being "the trade" if I can't help people out!!!

My goodness! I bet you could list it on craigslist. Some crafty person would have a field day with all that fabric!

On another note....I am almost finish (who am I kidding are we ever finished) with my room transformation! I went with a different color...didn't have the guts to go so dark! I'll send you pics as soon as I am finished!!
