    Several years ago, there was a collection of fabrics manufactured and printed based on fabric and quilts in the York County Historical Society collections. I thought it was pricey but now, I wish I would have bought some. And wish I would have kept the newspaper and other articles on why the fabric was made!

    Another reason as to if you see something you like, get it. It would be available forever!

    Lots of times if I see fabrics I really like, I buy it then and I don't just wish I had.

    True....I have often bought a tiny amount of fabric, then later want more, and they no longer have it!

    Yeah! How dare they sell out when I was wanting more? I do that, too.

    Fabric: If you like it get it. If you love it get double the amount you first intended to buy.

    I completely agree with you. A few have gotten away from me over the years, but for the most part, if it speaks (it whispers or sometimes YELLS psst over here Janet, buy me, buy me) I will in fact buy it.
    The clerk will ask me, "Oh, what are you going to make with this". I can't tell you how many times I say that I don't have any idea, I just have to have it. :lol: :lol: :lol:
