    Stopped at a small rural library (open just 3 evenings/week) for an advertised fabric sale. An acquaintance makes charity quilts w/ friends. She buys oodles of on line closeouts & is selling some of it for $3 - $4/yd - Moda, Timeless Treasures, etc. She sold it at her cost plus 25 cents/yd for the library room rental fee. She does not sell on line - sorry. She invited me to join their weekly quilting group. I liked about $600 worth, but restrained myself & spent $200 for 60++ yds of fabric. I didn't have that much $$ with me - she said, "No problem - send it a little at a time, whenever you can" - trusting soul. I'm also buying cabinets from her - $55 total, solid wood, deep, 2 stacking pieces, each 4 ft wide, 4 ft high. Can't wait to get it all assembled/organized in my room.

    all 1 - 3 yd cuts

    Yes, that is how I feel. When I go to Craig's list sales they trun out to be rotten apples. Maybe one day. Enjoy your fabric and treat your friend good. that is very kind of her to resell for cost.

    Yes, I 'owe' her. My friend buys only quality quilt fabric for her personal use plus for charity quilts she & friends make, so she sells the extra at her cost. She got some of it at on line going-out-of-business sales, & still continues to purchase more - I'll be back to see her fabric again for sure.
