There have been numerous threads on quality of fabric vis a vis
type of store. We will NOT go there now. But, I would like to
talk about (BRAG about?) scoring super bargains! Let's not talk
about every piece of fabric we've ever bought ... let's just talk
about fantastic bargains we've gotten the last few months, June &
Since this is my idea I get to start. ;) In July I noticed that
the LQS had yellow Halloween Border Fabric on clearance for only
$3/yard. Normal price was about $6.50 IIRC. I did remember that
Wendy had purchased some of it when she came here in the Spring.
I sent her an e-mail and asked if she wanted to split yardage
with me. I proposed to buy about 3 yards and cut it in half
lengthwise so we'd each have long pieces to border Halloween
quilts. That would be about 22" x 3 yards for $4.50 each. Not
bad. Couldn't go to store right away for some reason. Finally got
there during the July 25,26,27 "Christmas in July Sale" and
really had fun! For that sale only, the $3 clearance was buy two
yards, get third yard free. Woo Hoo! Since it was "Souper Sunday"
I contributed canned soup for the local food pantry for charity.
I was delighted to learn that such contributions were 'rewarded'
with a free yard of the clearance fabric, shopper's choice. So
.... I went there to pay $9 for 3 yards of fabric but ended up
with 4 yards of fabric for just $6 ... LESS than the original
price of one yard. I mailed Wendy her half, so we each have 22" x
4 yards for Halloween fun.
So, what fabric bargains did you find this summer/winter? PAT in
