Ujamaa Grandmas wrap up

Here’s the follow-up to the fabric and yarn sale that took place last week. The sale wrapped up at 3 p.m. on Saturday. The volunteers flew into action dividing up all the unsold items for about 14 other charities who could use them. Amazing to see!packing up fabric room fabric room winding downboxed up quilting fabrics nearly empty shelves picked over fabric shelves home decor room yarn wallAt the end of the day, all the apple box shelves were empty. Fortunately there were strong young volunteers breaking them down and loading them for recycling.empty boxes empty boxesAs you can see from signs hanging in the fabric room, the sale prices were not reasonable, they were incredibly low. Everything was offered at rock bottom prices. Where else could you buy a sewing macine for $20? Please try to imagine the volume of goods sold to bring in $31,000.00. Yes – you read that correctly – 31 THOUSAND dollars! I hope you’re as impressed as I am. Congratulations to the Ujamaa Grandmas on a job well done!

  1. Wow, that is amazing. And even the leftovers I can imagine being used to bring in even more money/completed quilts sewn by volunteers to help those in need.
