This one is kind of crazy, but for the right person, it could be a bonanza! These are silk sample books from a manufacturer. There are easily 80 pieces of silk, ranging anywhere from 4" by 6" to 10" x 12". The only caveat is that some of the samples have a card stock backing that has been glued to the wrong side (see above right), so you won't be able to sew with all of the piece. However, you might have a great craft idea that needs silk backed with card stock. I've threatened to patch this into pillows and/or a silk throw, but it hasn't happened in four years, so I doubt it's going to happen now! If you win and produce something clever, send pictures!

My older sister's worst sewing incident had to be in high school when she ran her finger through the sewing machine. My mother had to pull the needle out with pliers. Gross, huh? It's hard for me to pick just ONE disaster-- I have about 100 stories of being almost finished with a project and accidentally cutting a hole in it. Usually right in the front. And I do have that cutting my fingers incident...
