    Something neat I saw at Stitch'n'Time in Jackson Hole, WY

    We are on vacation and I found the nicest little quilt shop in Jackson Hole called Stitch'n'Time. I found one area of fat 1/8ths for $.50, fat 1/4's for $1, 1/2 yds for $2.50 & so on. 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.

    What a great idea! It would be nice if more store owners would do such a thing.

    That is the best Win-Win idea I've heard in a long time! Time consuming for shop owner, but selling stuff twice is pretty cool, while keeping people coming back to the store. Hope you're having a great trip, too! Such fun to find a shop where you didn't expect it!

    Sounds like a win-win arrangement.

    Wow that's such a great idea! My daughter lives about 45 mins from Jackson hole in Idaho, isn't it just amazingly beautiful around the mountains out there. Maybe i'll have her stop there next time she has to travel there to pick someone up from the airport. I wish all quilt shops did something like this. Sure would help encourage more people to try quilting.

    Wouldn't it be fun if that idea catches on for all of our towns? Thank's for sharing!
