Kijiji Finds

Let’s talk Kijiji for one second. I have found some amazing sewing finds on Kijiji in the past.

Last year, I found HUNDREDS of vintage sewing patterns for FREE! Free, people! Hundreds of them. I don’t even know where to put them. I’d love to get my hands on one of those filing cabinets at Fabricland that they store their patterns in. Not one, two. I’m going to be greedy and say I want two of them. It’s the dream.

I’ve found awesome fabric on Kijiji. I’ve given away awesome fabric as well.

Kijiji is also where I first heard about the Fabulous Fabric Frenzy. And I heard about it’s return on Kijiji as well.

Last night I found an ad for free sewing, quilting, embroidery, and serging books. Free. A huge box! It was a take the whole box deal, and I don’t quilt or really have any interest in learning right now.

So, question. Does anybody in the Edmonton area want some free quilting books? They’re yours if you want them.

Pictures below, plus a huge stack of quilting magazines that are not pictured.

UPDATE: Danny’s step-mom picked up the pattern books this morning. Awesome.







About manningthemachine

I'm Laura. Mama to four, and wife to one awesome guy. I'm ever so slightly sarcastic. Just a little bit. I like to quote movies, but since our house is managed by little people, most of those quotes come from kiddie shows. At least my husband generally gets the references. It makes me feel less awkward. I took sewing lessons starting at the age of 8, through the Kids Can Sew program. I took lessons for four or five years. Then I became a snotty teen and decided sewing was lame. I've repented of my ways, and enjoy sewing for my little ones. And sometimes other people. And almost never for myself. Oh hey. My blog name. "Manning The Machine." I think it's probably only funny if you know me in real life. And even then, maybe it is only funny to me. My last name is Manning. This is a blog about my sewing. Manning The (Sewing) Machine. Do you get it? Do you? No. That's fine. I think it's funny even if you don't.
