Vintage fabric week again - Monday is 'scrapbag' day

Nine more vintage fabric scrapbags will be listed tomorrow.
Each scrapbag consists of four different but coordinating vintage fabrics, each piece measuring 12cms x 18cms. All four pieces for £3.50

Rag Rescue salvages scraps of vintage fabrics and embellishments from the past and brings them into the future, clean and fresh ready to start a new life in the 21st Century.

By re-using these vintage fabrics and trims, we hope to reduce the estimated one million tonnes of textiles that goes into UK landfills each year.

We have many great patterns and artefacts from the past to share with you. Whether you are a crafter, embellisher, artisan, quilter, fibre artist or designer we hope to fulfil your creative needs.

I hope that by encouraging you to recycle the delectable textiles from years gone by, you will be able to make unique fashion and home accessories for the future.
