I'm doing a cleaning and destashing in my sewing room. I've got 3 medium flat rate boxes of men's ties up for grabs. Each box has about 40 ties in it and one, two or three boxes are yours for the postage of $12.35 a box. First come, first served. PM me with you name and address. I'll take check, cash, money order or paypal and will send out your ties when postage is received! Thanks!
What a hoot it would be to send these to my SIL. He has been whining all week on facebook about having to wear a tie at work as part of the winter uniform.
Hope you get a new home for them.
Hey MC sent you a PM

My sister has been collecting ties for years. I don't know what she ever plans to do with them because she doesn't sew anymore. Were you saving them to make a Dresden plate quilt?
No Devonne, no dresden plate quilt. I had two different patterns to make tie purses - one using one novelty tie and making a mini purse and one other one making a pouch like bag. And I wanted to make a bow tie quilt from old ties, too. Never got around to any of those projects and not likely to now. Need the space. Hurt my feeling to just throw them away so offered them to quilty friends.

I have all I need. But this is a good buy! I bought some for $1 each at Good Will to make purses...which hasn't happened yet.
Does this hat make my butt look big?
I have oodles of my dad's ties and some of my grandfather's too. Just curious about the purses you mentioned. where did you find the patterns? I'm guessing they need to be stabilized first because of the bias cut?
I made these a few years ago to hold the nieces' Christmas cash. I know I still have the pattern somewhere!
Now that dh is unemployed I've looked at a few more of his ties... especially the one with the state of NH / Old Man of the Mountain printed on it!
cuilteanna, I think that's one of the patterns I was going to make. Here's one link to a tutorial
same purse, differnt link
I can't find the other one, which was just a little evening type bag right now, but there are a LOT of patterns on the internet.
Mine were small and used only one tie, I've found something close but not exactly right:
I'm fairly sure I got it from here, but it was a couple of years ago!
All boxes are spoken for. I went and opened a couple of the bags packed in the boxes and played with the pretty bright ties a little this morning and wished I had more time for sewing so I could do have the things I plan!
I sorted my acquired ties this evening. DH swore one was his so he brought his out. He was wrong because I knew better than to get into his ties. But he did donate one to the cause.
I sorted and matched and have two purses to make now. LOL I'll just be using 3 ties on each side of the purse...no more than 4...I think the majority of these are from the 1970s. WIDE ties.

Mcpatches if there are any still available I will take them and you can ship to my sisters house please, I use them for Christmas stockings, CQ ...and have been collecting certain colors for a quilt, and have been making beautiful bags. Oh do you have paypal?

Thanks for posting the links. I have printed the one out from craftymathea. I tried the craftster and craftbits link but they take too long on dial-up. I'll give it a try later, right now I'm still settling Dad's estate and getting the house ready to go on the market in the spring.
For those looking for a certain color, some of us might have extras we would share.
cuilteanna, I'm intrigued with the state of NH/Old Man of the Mountain one. Do you remember where he got it?
DH has one that looks like a fish. Remember those from the 1980's?
Piney, it was from George's in Manchester. I may have to buy one for myself because he isn't giving it up.This message has been edited. Last edited by: cuilteanna,
I can see why he won't give up his tie. Very nice. I haven't been to George's in quite some time.......before we moved up north.
