    What an awesome Idea! I LOVE the green aspect. And it doesn't hurt to find such a great deal!

It was called "timeless treasures". The owner explained to me that she buys back leftover fabrics from her customers for $5 per pound. It is all prewashed and she cuts it up in various sizes and resells it. I was able to get enough for a nice size "couch size" quilt top for @$12. I just thought it was a really nice idea- a way she could support "going green" and I could support my habit on the cheap. ;-)

    When I get back home I'm going to tell my LQS and see if it's something they might start.

    We are going to Jackson/Yellowstone in October and I can't wait to visit this shop. Thanks so much for sharing. We have a list a mile long of things to see---can't see them all. Would you mind sharing what you especially liked. This is our first visit.

    What a great idea! I love Jackson's Hole--so beautiful. (I was there 40 years ago, however, and not much was there then.)

    Definitely go see the quilt shop! Lol!! Oh, you mean scenery, etc? We went to Teton Village and did the tram. It's a 12 min ride up the mtn. for a spectacular view. Be sure and wear a jacket no matter how nice it feels down below. It was 83* down below and 59* on top of mtn. and windy. But the view was worth it. Your hotel probably has a $3 off coupon they"ll give you. With the coupon it makes it $26. In JH our favorite restaurant was the brewery- not the Thai brewery, but the other one. Good beer (my dh says) & good food.

    We entered Yellowstone from the south entrance and went up the western side, staying in Gartiner last night, and doing the eastern side today, then back around to the western side. Along the western side is where you see the wildlife- yesterday we saw elk in the river, buffalo alongside the road in the meadows, and mtn goat up on the rocky hillsides. We stopped at several of the geyser basins. That is incredible. The one called paint pots were my favorites- very colorful. We went to old faithful but she had just blown her top so we're making our way around there again today. We know an @ time frame now. I hope you have a great trip. I'm sure it'll be beautiful. The wildfires out west has made the mtns. a bit hazy looking, but still beautiful in all their majesty! Enjoy!

    Wow, what a great idea, wish they all did this!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?

    Reselling fabric! Sounds like a wonderful idea. I'm always trying to use everything, down to the last crumb, and when I hear of people throwing out fabric, I cringe. I hope this catches on other places.

    Does she still have her blank quilt blocks out for her customers to sign? I was in there in 2009, love the little shop.
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...

    What a fantastic idea! I love scrappy quilts, and this would be a terrific way to get an amazing variety of fabrics for less. Love the other poster's point, about how reselling the fabric keeps quilters coming back to the store, too! That store owner is one smart cookie.
