    Just wondering how many people secretly - or not so secretly - wish that they could be the buyer for their LQS? (Even for a day...)

    YES! Because honestly some of those fabrics make me wonder who chose them. Then again, someone else would be saying that if I was doing the choosing :)

    I'd have to agree with Sharon, seeing and feeling all the samples....... Then again, I would want to take half of them home with me!!!

    Yes, I do. My LQS carries a large percentage of traditional type fabrics and I tend to like more modern or even wild fabric lines. It's probably a good thing they don't stock what I like. I'd be poor.

    Nope - not even the slightest interest.

    Well, yes...lol! I did actually tell the Joann's in Lynchburg, VA that they had the ugliest fabric I had ever seen and I would sure love to talk to their buyer. That was about 3 months ago. I went in to Joann's while I was there last week and lo and behold I had to tell them that the fabric selections were great and it was nice to see some pretty fabric there for once. :^)
