I just got back from the fabric store and wanted to share my experience. We read so much about poor customer service that I wanted to post something positive. I was shopping for backing. As the fabric was measured the clerk noticed it had a spot that was soiled. She thought it would probably wash out and I did too. I needed 8 yards. There were 8-1/4 left on the bolt. She gave me all of it and charged me for 7. Plus I had a 40% off coupon. So I got 8-1/4 yards of batik fabric for $42.00. This will really help keep down my expenses for this quilt.
