    In previous years, I have not looked for fabric or quilting supplies at after-Christmas sales, so I have no idea if there is such a thing. Is there? Which stores will have fabric and other goodies for us quilters on sale come 26 December?

    Many online shops will be having sales. Try www.quiltshops.com -- there are over 225 shops connected to this site - type in the word sale in the search area.

    I do try to frequent the LQS in my area; however, haven't been able to drive for quite some time due to surgeries, so have appreciated online shopping!

    I'm on a Fabric Diet starting the first of the year. Need to use up some of my stash. I'll only buy fabric if it is needed for a special project. Of course I always need something to "go with" what's in my stash.

    I have been receiving notices from my LQS that they will be having a sale. Look up any near you online and see if they have a sale....or call. JoAnns always has a sale on something.

    Alot of my fabric is the same as yours. I do have some new stuff, but all the new stuff is so tempting. I buy a little but need to use up the old. I will say that you can still make beautiful quilts with the older fabric and most non quilters don't know the difference. :thumbup:

    There's also Fabric.com which is offering discounts based on the amount you spend, starting Sunday.

    Try stores.ebay.com/chantellelacedesigns. I found some beautiful fabrics the other day and she runs sales with some great bargains. Also shipping is done with care in packing.

    Therein lies the rub, eh? To stash or not to stash. When we stash we can end up with fabric that we fell in love with at the moment and had to have but don't use. I'm new to quilting and have a small stash but I don't think I will add to it. After reading what many of you have to say about stashes, I think I'll stop buying for a while. I already have more than I will use in a year (I don't make as many projects as some of you) and I don't want what I have to "old", either emotionally or in reality. Once in a while I go through the stash as see a fabric and I have to ask "Now, Lori, why did you absolutely have to have this fabric?" It's okay but I don't get the "rush" I did when I first saw and bought it. Boy, the psychology of stashing is deep and I'm pretty sure, for me anyway, there's more to it than having fabric. If any of you watch "Hoaders" or "Hoarders: Buried Alive" you know what I mean when I say I don't want to become an fabric hoarder!

    One is Quilt in a day the other is Eleanor Burns.com (I think) I will try to post the links for you. One is in California the other is in Paducka Kentucky( this is the newest site). Both sites look almost the same , but often one has more or less stock than the other . So if you can find it on one check the other. Unfortunaley they do not have the inventories linked so you can check one sites inventory while on the other.

    JoAnns usually marks the material down closer to the holidays and may have good discounts after the holidays.

    Pat,
    That is a wonderful idea. I'm going with you.
    As far as the after CHRISTmas sales, I wouldn't go anywhere close to any shopping. Shop until one drops, doesn't take very long for me anymore.

    I have returned to quilting after a thirty year absence and am building my stash. With the gift of a terrific five shelf unit from my DH on Friday it is all organized and I look at it and see projects. Made some wonderful buys on ebay and some were just because the fabric "called" to me. It will all get used, some not for quilts but for apparel or ornaments, etc. I don't consider myself a hoarder, a pack rat very probably; but as I get older I am trying to clean up what I just had to save so that my son doesn't have to wonder why Mom saved this or that.
