Today as I was setting at my desk happily crunching numbers I received a phone call from a quilter friend that there is an amazing fabric/craft sale about two blocks away from where I was at. All kinds of bolts and bit and things. She told me she found lots of fabric for backings. Funny, how we all tempt each other. I thanked her for telling and said that I would spread the word. Would I give in or resist??
I did what every quilter would do...I booked it straight there. After a quick 10-15 minuets of browsing I left a donation and walked away with a few remnants of fabric. Not sure what I will do with them but not a bad score.
I asked the lady how she acquired so much fabric. She smiled rolled her eyes and said, "My mother." I laughed and said I imagine my daughter will be having this same conversation one day.
This was the first time I have ever fabric shopped at a yard sale. Heck, it's the only reason I went. I'd love to hear your yard sale horror stories or even about wonderful quilting scores you've found. Help renew my faith in the system. I think I might start liking yard sales again.
