Sunday Stash Share: A little bit o' DS

8:00:00 AM

Oh, man.

If you're on Instagram, and you're a fabric-holic, you'll probably know what I'm talking about -

it's #thegreatfabricdestash

(The Great Fabric Destash)

and it's bad.

Very, very bad. Especially when you're on a tight budget.

So let's say - hypothetically speaking - a certain Canadian Expat, perhaps a little homesick and maybe a little down - spent an evening drowning her woes in gorgeous pictures of wonderful fabrics all over Instagram.

And maybe she realized that it had been forever since she really bought any fabric that was for herself.

And maybe, she went a little nutbar. About Denyse Schmidt.


Here's how it works if you're not on Instagram:

When you post a photo, you can add a hashtag and a search term immediately following it, like this:


...that hashtag term is clickable, searchable link, and will pull up every Instagram post of every person who ever used that #diy in their post.


Let's say you need to destash a bit of your fabric. And you want to sell it quickly, and not muck around with an online site.

You can post your destash item with the hashtag #thegreatfabricdestash and people (like the crazy Expat mentioned above) can search that term and see what people are selling.

I may have relieved one IG user of some of her Denyse Schmidt stash:

Denyse Schmidt, Freespirit Fabrics, "Franklin"
Denyse Schmidt for Freespirit Fabrics, "Chicopee"

I also may have added some of Bonnie and Camille's gorgeousness to my stash this week - come on, Vintage Modern? On a bolt? In 2015?! I had to - see the post and pictures {here}...

I'm cutting myself off now.


Talk about falling hard off the wagon.
