Selvages for Sale...and a Free Give-Away!

Laura Sampsel of http://www.fabricsquareshop.com/ in Stow, Ohio sells precut squares of gorgeous quilting fabrics. And you know what she has left over...selvages! They're already packed in gallon-size bags ready to be shipped for $13 each. They are 1.5 inches wide x 4" and 6.5" long. Shipping is free in the USA. How cool is that?

You need longer selvages? No problem! She also carries Moda Scrap Bags too, and she checks to make sure they have selvages. Am I taking care of you or what?

FREE GIVE-AWAY: Laura has a priority package of selvages ready to send to a lucky winner. Simply write a comment to this post; nothing fancy, since it will be a random drawing. The winner will be announced on Thursday the 23rd. Good luck! Remember to check back to see if you've won!

Be sure to visit her website, eBay store and etsy store. You will be dazzled!

starnescat said...

I notice that your posts are from several years ago and I hope you are still selling ! I want some selvages. I saw a picture about a year ago of a lady with a button up shirt made from fabric made from selvages sewn to white fabric. Please contact me at
cgatarnes@hughes.net and let me know how much you want for selvages. If you still have them in gallon Ziplock bags that would be super !!
Thanks,
starnescat
