I admit it. I'm a collector of all things sewing related - patterns, fabric, books, magazines, tools. However with the eye to the future, it is time to start de-stashing all the lovely things that I have collected. So, with that in mind, I have opened a new Etsy store called "Darla's Closet". It's only been open about a week but I have been added new things almost on a daily basis. Check it out and remember to check back often.
I am having a little bit of a hard time with this. I don't really want to get rid of stuff but I do need to be realistic in that I don't want to move it across country when the time comes. I don't know how I will be able to part with my growing machine collection. Maybe I will get lucky and the new house will have the space needed to store them or maybe I will decide that I don't really need a Singer Featherweight with all of the attachments that I've collected or the potted motor Singer. How could I possible get rid of Grandma's treadle? Do I really need all those Viking machines? There are going to be a lot of decisions that need to be made.
Have you moved across the country and had to make decisions about the stash? How did you tackle the issue? Any advice.
