    Was this a good deal?

    I am relatively new to quilting (just started in August) so I don't know the answer to this. My husband went and picked up my sewing cabinet and the husband's owner offered to sell my husband fabric and thread and a thread holder for $160.00. I wasn't there so my husband just went and took the offer. Here are pictures of everything he got. Was it a good deal? Not that it will change anything if it isn't but I'm curious.

    It looks like a good deal to me. That thread holder looks very sturdy and holds a lot of thread - a lot more than the one I got that cost $29.00 + tax and if you figure each piece of fabric is a minimum of $1.00 per quarter of a yard - it will add up so fast you will see he got a great deal.

    OMG - Yes, that is a great deal! Somewhere on the QB there is a picture of me holding a teeny little bag of batiks that I bought in Paducah that cost me $50.

    Where's the picture of the sewing cabinet? If you paid $1 for each spool of thread that would be $124 just for the thread so you got GREAT deal!
