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.
