    Went to my favorite LQS tonight for "friends" pre-sale. Tent sale this weekend to make way for new purchases. All clearance fabric $2 per yard (even a couple bolts brand new fabric hiding in amongst the clearance bolts), one area of fabric $4 per yard and all other 25% off. In the tent I purchased bolt ends of 3 different fabrics. Her mom did the count the rounds estimate of yardage and while the 2 smaller bolts were really close, the 3rd was one of the newer ones and I told her I wanted 6 yards. She said that was how much was on there, but when I measured there were 7.5 yards! Yeah! So I got 21.5 yards of fabric for $39 (+tax). My kind of shopping. :lol:
