More Than Just A Yardage Sale at TMC

13th Annual More Than Just A Yardage Sale

Friday May 30th 10:00 am – 6:00 pm
Saturday May 31st 11:00 am – 6:00 pm

For two days only, bargain-hunting fibre addicts will descend on the Textile Museum of Canada for the annual More Than Just A Yardage Sale. Created and run by the Museum’s volunteers, the sale is a bonanza for textile aficionados and a major fundraiser for the Museum. Shoppers will have their pick of an eclectic mix that includes yardages, yarns, vintage oddments and a wide variety of patterns, quilt fabrics, notions and crafts.

Everything in the sale is generously donated.

The More Than Just A Yardage Sale is an opportunity for fibre enthusiasts to sort through their stashes, contribute to a good cause and make room for new finds.

Donors and donations have ranged from the individual who brought in a few balls of alpaca yarn left over from a project, to the estate of an interior designer who donated a lifetime’s collection of decorator samples.

Now in its thirteenth year, the
More Than Just A Yardage Sale is a “must do” event for thrifty Toronto-area textile enthusiasts. The sale has become a major event, raising tens of thousands of dollars and attracting large crowds. Rain or shine, the sale will be held in temporary tents outside of the Textile Museum.
