    Opportunity to buy another quilter's stash

    I met a lovely lady through our local online classifieds. She has had to give up quilting due to failing eyesight. I bought a box of books from her for $30.00 a few weeks ago.

    She told me she would give me first dibs on her stash once she got it sorted. Well today I got an email from her saying come over this weekend.

    I have no idea of her taste in fabric, so it should be interesting.

    She said she has tools too.

    I will take a look at the budget and go with cash in hand.

    I will report back on Sunday.

    Sad, she no longer can sew, but great that you may be gaining her stash. Let us know.

    No matter how much you dislike the fabric, I still would get it if it's a good deal. How many times have we thought that piece of ugly fabric will not fit in anywhere, until it was mixed up with others, just to reveal it's true beauty.

    Imagine how many wonderful quilts you can make to donate to charity. Some of the colors or patterns, that you may or may not like, will be greatly appreciate it by others who are really cold.
