    I am befuzzled by people on ebay that sell lots of fq and yardage lots of fabric. Where do they get the fabric? It has to be cheap to them so they can sell cheap. Any ideas?

    My guess is that it is quilt shops and stash addicts.

    There are places in North Carolina where you can buy bulk
    There is a place at Fancy Gap Virginia (or might be NC) Just off the interstate. I was hoping to get this kind of information when I posted the subject recently but most of what I got was on line and regular quilt shops. There is another shop in Monroe NC. Believe is The Remnent Shop

    Some people get them the same place that many LQS's get theirs, from a wholesaller. All that they need is a Resaler Tax ID.

    I don't know but it gets me in trouble I just got 6 yards in the mail today that I paid 99 cents plus shipping ! I have gotten lots of good deals. Last week I bid .99 on large flat rate boxes of "estate find squares". I won two well I washed them yesterday and they filled a 30 gal trash bag when they came out of the dryer lol. Now to iron them all ugh.
