Join us for the 20th Annual More Than Just a Yardage Sale. Organized and run by the Museums Volunteer Association, the Sale raises significant funds in support of the Museums collections, exhibitions and public programs.

Continually expanding in scale, the More Than Just a Yardage Sale has become a not-to-be-missed event for textile and craft enthusiasts across the GTA. Supported by year-round generous donations, the sale features an abundant selection of dressmaking and decorator fabric, household and vintage linens, quilting supplies, patterns, yarn, beads, buttons and books all at bargain prices.

One of the Museums largest fundraisers, the annual event is entirely dependent upon the time, talent and energy of the TMC Volunteer Association which contributes over 15,000 hours to the Museum annually the equivalent of 8 full time positions. A team of over 120 volunteers brings the event to fruition, working year-round to gather, sort and price donations, as well as manage the sale.
