Do You Pinterest?

I have found that Pinterest is the very best way to keep up with the Feedsack-A-Day Pics!  It is so easy to post them there.  I actually am not very good at doing Anything-A-Day, so I tend to post in groups.

But if you enjoy looking at feedsacks, there are LOTS of them out there now!  Here's the link for you to browse http://www.pinterest.com/glennahailey/feedsack-of-the-day-pics/

Here are some pretty Aqua feedsacks that sold this week on eBay.  Enjoy!







See you soon~

Want to Know More About Feedsacks??

I was just listening to a podcast from Pat Sloan featuring my friend Stephanie at Loft Creations and realized that the interview I did with Pat in May of 2011 is still available!  If you would like to hear it, go to http://www.allpeoplequilt.com/magazines-more/quilting-podcast.  Toward the bottom of the page you'll see a box with dates.  Scroll down to May 23, 2011 and click to hear us visit about feedsacks and more.  Enjoy!!

I'm still playing with lots of scraps and they fly out of my eBay store as fast as I can list them!  Here are a few I listed and sold yesterday.  Lots more to come!!

 
 

See you soon!

More Beautiful Feedsacks!

There are some feedsacks that people just can't get enough of!  I agree that they are pretty, but sometimes I'm just stunned at what others are willing to pay.  Here are a few and what they sold for.  Some are mine and some are not...

This quarter sack recently sold for almost $28.  That would make the whole sack $112!


This quarter sack sold for $23.50 making it $94.


But the winner was...    The one below sold for $241.50!!  (This one is not mine, darn it!)


So if you see any of these, you might want to pick them up!  See you next time~

Scraps, Scraps, Scraps!!

Over the many years I have been collecting feedsacks, I have accumulated MANY scraps, of course!  I have been playing with them and decided to list some bundles on eBay.  They are flying out of there so I thought you might enjoy seeing some of them.  There will be LOTS more to come!



See you next time~

More Fun Disney Feedsacks!

Don't you just love the idea that the bag companies worked SO hard to keep up with what was popular at the time and then gave those sacks away FREE??  Not likely to happen today, is it?

Here's Mickey, Donald and Goofy having fun at the rodeo in 2 colorways!  I've also seen this in Pink and Aqua and my friend, Edie McGinnis, says she has it in purple.  There is a white version that has the same figures but it also has a cactus outline and a few other differences.  I think they jumped on the popularity of these Disney figures in the 50s and combined it with the allure of the Southwest.  SO fun!!

 
 
I showed you some Alice in Wonderland feedsacks a couple of posts back.  Here is the same sack with a Pink background!  Colored backgrounds are usually more desirable.
 


Hope you're staying warm and safe this weekend.  Here in OKC we're getting #1 of 3 winter storm tracks through the area this week.  About an inch of snow on the ground.  The storm coming Tuesday should be worse.  We've got lots of food and the fireplace will be working non-stop!

See you soon!

Authentic Feedsack Quarter Bundles Now Available Here!

Welcome!  These Bundles of 8 Feedsack Quarters have been so popular I thought I'd offer them here as well!  You  have a total of 2 Full Sacks.  $27.95 includes shipping ($24.95 + $3.00).  This is a terrific way to add to your collection for a great price!  You will receive the actual 1/4 sacks shown in the pictures.  I have added close-ups of the fabrics so you can see larger pieces of them.  When this group is gone, I'll add another.  Here is some additional info about them...

These pieces measure about 18" wide x 18 1/2" to 22" long with 1 selvedge edge. They all have a nice, tight weave and the thread holes are present as expected. They have been washed and ironed, are ready to use and in excellent condition!  *The pink on the right is more accurate in the close-up.

It's important to know that feedsacks were often emptied and tossed to the floor of a barn where they might have languished for a long time.  You will often find tiny stains or small "peck" holes as well as small "pull" holes where the sack was unsewn.  There may be very slight overall fading if the sack needed to be soaked to make it usable.  Also, minor manufacturer's flaws may also be present as they were produced cheaply.

SOLD!  Thanks so much!  I'll get a new group listed soon.
