Etsy or Ebay?

Or maybe an ad on one or two or three of the local church bulletin boards?

Is Kijiji available in the States? It's pretty good. It's alot like Cragslist. Also check if your city or district has it's own classifieds site. Northern Ontario (mainly Timmins, Sudbury and North Bay) has Myzer.com, for example. Also, you may be asking too high a price. I occaisionally come across postings for fabric on various classifieds sites, and I swear to you this is true, most of them are asking near-retail prices. I'm just not willing to pay by the metre for something they've had in a box for a decade (they could have specified the designer, what collection it was from, the year/season it was released, etc, if it was actually worth that kind of money). Know what I mean?

Print up little "business cards" (using a biz card template in Microsoft Office - Word) but print it to plain paper and cut it out. Just say something like "Do you sew? I am selling my fabric stash! Call 555-0000" or something to that effect. That way you can leave several on every board.  Or do the classic sign with tear-off paper-slips at the bottom with your number and "FABRIC" written on the slips.

Put it in your Craftster signature that you're selling your stash.

That's all I can think of at the moment. Good luck Cheesy

This may sound weird, but on diaperswappers.com alot of women sell their fabric (in the FSOT section) for use in making cloth diapers and cloth pads. Most of it seems to go really fast!

Not wierd at all, your post reminded me of FSOT on thebabywearer.com also.  There are alot of sewing mama's on that board too.

I tried to sell part of my stash as well and no luck. I tried craigslist .... no takers. I ended up giving it away for free.  Finding people who wanted it free was not a problem! Wink I had some really huge stuff I just did not want anymore.

Try the local craftster boards. I know there is one for my area, there may be one for yours too.
