    My niece and I stopped at Long Creek Mills on out way out of town. They had GREAT prices on embroidery thread :lol: I got the smaller spools for $1.50 each, except for the metallic and variegated which where 3.50 They all have 1100 yards on the spool. The lady was wonderful and so helpful :thumbup:

    I have alot of people that would like one of the Guam plates. I keep thinking I should put it on Ebay to see how much I could get, but then again, I think my youngest would be upset if I sold her plate.

    Looks like you had a great time with everyone. Isn't it fun to meet board members? Glad you made it safely from point A to B and back again! Great fabric!
