    Hadn't seen anyone talking about this, so thought I'd drop a line in case anyone else would think it was fun: http://tinyurl.com/39q2v3

    23 fully-loaded Rubbermaid totes...so that's what a near-half ton of fabric looks like! :shock: Next time DH-TB says I have a "ton" of yarn or a "ton" of fabric, I can assure him that I most certainly do NOT! :lol:

    ... and they wouldn't ship it, the winner had to come pick it up. Some adventurous person got it all for just 32c a pound!

    i can just see me telling my DH that we are going to Wisconsin to pick up 750 lbs of fabric :D He'd lock me up in the loony bin so fast it would make you dizzy! I'd never get my fabric either!

    32 cents a pound is around 10 cents a yard. if DH said no, HE'd be the crazy one.

    and your fellow quilters would band together to help you drag him to the looney bin.

    :wink: :lol:

    :-) :-) :-)

    Amen to the fact that it is already sold as I live in Wisconsin. I could be sorely tempted.

    That thought did occur to me too. I would no longer be able to hunt for that special piece. I guess that will keep me out of trouble for now--I do like to look, may not buy a whole lot, but half the fun is the hunt :lol:

    Can you imagine getting THAT much fabric for 10 cents a yard?? Wow...I believe I have now seen a glimpse of Utopia, nervana even.

    I'm picturing a quilted straight jacket, maybe in soothing pastels.....

    Yep... I must agree; I'm glad it weren't me what won that thar treasure trove... It screams WAY TOO MANY MISSED SHOPPING TRIPS!!!!! No, no, no...

    It was cool to see what 750 lbs of fabric looks like.... That means I'm probably pushing... oh... 900 or so (I can just never pull it all out at once like that)... :lol: :lol: (Don't tell DH!! Shhh... our secret :wink: )

    Yiiikkkeeessss!!! Talk about the "mother load"!! This has to be it. I cannot begin to imagine the "Christmas" package surprises the winner will have going from one piece to the next. Good for her.

    I would have trouble getting that much fabric into my sewing room, let alone sorting and then storing. My shelves are pretty full. I think I'd rather purchase one piece at a time.
