    This is my DIL Tessa. and it was the very first day in Florida when she went to Jo-Ann's to buy "some" fabric.
    The lady behind the counter wasn't very happy with her. She had to cut all of the yards......
    Tessa is a very happy girl now!!!

    I would think they would have more than one associate to help your DIL. Those carts are pretty small too.

    Way to go!!!!!! Yes.... Good for her. She is a beautiful girl. I know you are proud she has the quilting bug too. The store manager should have been assisting her and cutting it him/her self for a sale that large.....!!!!

    The lady behind the counter should be happy, that is why she has a job. I bet she really enjoyed her shopping ventures.

    What a neat way for her to get fabric since it is so much more in France. The clerk should have been patient and realized this is good business for our store!

    Ohhhh how I wish she was!!! but no, she already has plans for them. She wants to make a quilt for her mother's 70th birthday in januari and I offered her to help. But she's living in Holland and I'm in France.....we do a lot by mail and skype.

    She should have told the unhappy sales woman,
    "I came all the way from France to shop at your store!"

    Good for her! And the lady behind the counter should consider it job security. It doesn't matter if she cuts 100 yards for 1 customer or 1 yard for 100 customers. The money is the same.

    I am so happy for her! We take if for granted sometimes that we have so much fabric available at somewhat low prices. Thanks for sharing. I hope she has months and months of fun with the fabric.
