I live in Vancouver Washington and belong to a large guild. Over 500 members. We had a Stashbuster Bazaar today and as usual I found some real bargains. Am thinking I should avoid fabric stores and just shop at our bazaar. Great fabrics at 50 cents a fat quarter and lots of larger pieces for $2 a yard. Also picked up a few patterns and some rulers. Fabric Depot is just across the river in Portland, OR and has a wonderful selection of quilter's cottons. Thousands of bolts, but their average price seems to be around 12.50 a yard now.
