    What a great find!!! I know that makes you feel so good to come upon a deal like that. One day I was in a Goodwill Store and a clerk was taking fabric out of a cart and putting it on a shelf to sell. It was some of WalMart's better fabric, and it wasn't old. Much of it they still carried. It was bright and colorful and especially good for children. I couldn't believe they were selling it for so little! I ended up buying much of that fabric and have used it to make all kinds of things for my grandchildren--quilts, pajamas, pillow cases. With today's fabric prices, you got a steal of a deal! Enjoy!

    DH & I drove over 30 miles yesterday for yard sale, and guess what? The same thing that always happens to me. No
    material or sewing items there. I`ve even handed out my name phone # at yard sales to any one who knew a sewer.
    No luck at all! On Average how many sales do you have to go to get lucky for anything sewing?

    There won't be any garage sales in my neck of the woods for quite sometime. You made a really nice score...those butterfly fabrics are just beautiful.

    Congrats, Sylvia! Wonderful deal. We got a foot of snow here this week, and freezing rain coming down now. No yards sales for months ahead for us!

    Don't you just love a great find? The last deal that I got was about 50 yards of fabric and a couple other things for 70 bucks.... There has been 3 other estate sales since then and I have forced myself to stay home.... I do NOT need any more fabric! I really don't need another machine either, but this addiction that we have is really hard to pass a great bargain up.... Of course we get lots of other things too while out shopping....
