I have guests staying in my craft room next month, please help me clean it out!

Let it be known that:
I have two furry cats
I do not smoke

And now for the fun part:

SECTION A: 3 for 1 pt

Pre-cut sewing patterns:

McCall 5007 cut at a size 10 bust (princess seam lined jackets)
Simplicity 5597, cut at a size larger than the actual pattern (view B only IIRC)
Vogue 2814, twist top/dress, top only cut at a size 10 bust.

Simplicity 4356 cut at a size 18? (jacket C only cut IIRC) sherpa jackets
Butterick 3573 cut at a size 10 bust (fleece jackets)

SECTION B: 2 for 1 pt Mix and Match any

Uncut sewing patterns:

Vogue storage ottomans to cover recycling bins
McCall 9407 Baby layette - traced but not cut all sizes

McCall 6784 Palmer/Pletsch Creative Cardigan size 10
Kwiksew 2584 jackets with woven front/back and knit sleeves, all sizes
Vogue 2006 Lauren Sara dress, tunic, pants size 14-18

Random items, still 2 for 1 pt

clockwise from top left:
assorted yarn in baggie
scented cinnamon sticks
"CrystaWrap" plastic film, "seal with the touch of hot iron, soft for easy cutting and shaping, create jewelry, novelty, bow ties". No instructions, Slightly less than 2 yds because I tried to figure out how to use it briefly and unsuccessfully.
assorted sytrofoam balls and eggs in baggie
fabric swatches, mostly linen/rayon
baggie of fimo - unopened silver and peach, opened blue, black gold
most of a deck of Albano-Waite tarot cards.

Fabric: these are variously sized remnants. Pick any two remnants for 1 pt:
crinkle rayon, beige with black stripe, 28" by 54"

clockwise from upper left:
slate grey rayon gabardine, 40" by 30"
super soft rayon , yellowish cream, 54" by 28"
dark red wool gabardine, 36" by 25"
brown wool twill, two pieces 14 by 27, one piece 25" by 24", all three go as one remnant
black hemp herringbone, 21" by 30"
mystery fabric (part of a scarf, pink/purple/turquoise) 43" by 20"
wool suiting, white and green windowpane, full width (60"?) by 25"

Washington DC stickers, unopened OR slightly used box of paper flowers with those little metal thingies (brads? that can't be what they are called). I only used I think one of the flowers out of the package. (1/2 point for either)

floral print foe (1/4" when folded, 3 yds) 1/2 pt

pale purple fuzzy back foe (1/4" when folded, 8 ft), 1/2 pt

SECTION C, 1 pt per item

Set of three unopened packs of gold studs, various sizes OR
baggie of mixed pony beads and similar for melting (or whatever)

Vintage Burda WOF magazines. I have many many more. Not for beginning sewists. Most magazines in German, most instructions in French (few exceptions). I have most of the issues from the early 80s, ask if there is one you are looking for. Here is a sample. These suckers are heavy and expensive to ship, hence the raise in price to 1 pt each (have to send parcel post even for a single issue).

And a closeup of the inside and instructions and pattern sheet:

Burda moden 9/1984: big chunky knit sweaters, shirtdress, kids rainwear?, kites to sew; german with french instructions
Burda moden 11/1983: eveningwear, plaids for kids, crosstitch, german/french
Burda moden 1/1983: more 80s sweaters, random 80s clothes, german/french
Burda moden 4/1979: kids bathrobes, lingerie, resortwear? german/french
Burda moden 3/1976: mid 70s dresses, jackets for summer, barbie clothes, german magazine/ARABIC instructions! only for the truly adventurous (or arabic readers)
100 idees: 1988, this is a french magazine with clothes, needlework, knitting. actually, the knit stuff looks kinda cool. But it is in french entirely.

Fabrics, 1 pt per piece:

Red cotton?/lycra knit, meaty and soft, 60 wide, 1 1/4 yd approx

Linen, 1 pt each piece. Lef to right:
midweight beige with brown pinstripe, 54" by 1 1/4 yd
lightweight linen, olive and white irregular stripes, crinkly, 50" by 1 yd and smidge
brown linen, 54 inches by 1 1/4 yd

midweight gold wool twill weave (coating type), 60 inches by 1.5 yd

dark red wool broadcloth, 58 inches by 1.25 yd
finewale stretch cotton corduroy, coffee with dark brown brint, 54 inches by 3/4 yd

Fabric, 1 pt per yard, you choose how much to cut (minimum 1 yd)

So I had this huge piece of orange tone red wool gabardine, and I tried to full it, and it reacted strangely and got all crinkly, so I can't use it for what I wanted. I have at least 5 yds. You choose how much you want, 1 pt per yd, 1 yd minimum. This stuff is heavy, so if someone overseas claims a lot, I am going to be paying out the wazoo for shipping  Shocked  Wink

Trims: 1 pt for each type.
Heavier gold trim, 4 yds
lighter black fringe trim, 5.5 yds

SECTION D, 2 pts each

border print fabric, black with print, wool? rayon? not sure. 2 yds, 54" wide. My aunt bought this in paris 25 years ago.

Hot Patterns, uncut, Slinky girl sizing.

Wong-Singh-Jones Maharajah jacket
Wong-Singh-Jones Nirvana twinset
2 pts each or both for 3 pts.
