weekly stash report

A couple of Saturdays ago, I saw an ad on Craigslist for a "quilter's garage sale." Teenage Daughter had to be at a birthday party a couple of miles away and I had three or four hours to fill...  I came home with 30 or so yards of quilt shop quality fabric for a very reasonable price.

I might have bought more -- and in hindsight, it's probably best that I behaved myself -- but there was a guy there at the sales table who kept making mean-spirited comments about the fabric stash they were selling. I never quite figured out which of the three women the fabric belonged to, or why she was getting rid of it (and it was none of my business anyway.)

But if you're trying to sell of hundreds and hundreds of yards of nice fabric, your best customers are probably going to be the quilters who already have plenty at home. And those quilters probably don't want to be reminded of that while they're picking out fabric.

Just a thought...

What a lucky find on Craig's list - I keep looking for our area and haven't had any luck yet.

Glad your hubby is home.
