A quilt shop about an hour from here had a tent sale, and my friend and I decided to make a day of it. We started at the sale. I had never seen anything like it. Fabric was priced at $4 a yard (not new) and the shoppers were buying the whole bolt of whatever they managed to pick up (that part was new). People even walked through the line asking if you were taking the whole bolt of what you were holding. My five yards was nothing compared to what most people bought.
After we ate lunch we headed over to the Amish quilt shop and bulk food store. The quilt shop was hard. I’m not sure how they buy fabric so cheap, but their prices are 25-40% less than what the other quilt shops charge. I picked up one cut, but I would have loved to buy more. Maybe after I use up some of what I already have….
We made several other short stops and got home about dinner time.
No fabric out this week, but I’m close to a finish. Next week I can ever so slightly redeem myself.
