    Ok, there are a few item I have on my quilting wish list, and I'm more than happy to wait for a while to get them. I thought it might be interesting if we could share our thrifty prowess and maybe everybody could save a few dollars.

    The Accuquilt Go - lowest price so far seems to be about $224

    6 x 24 ruler - lowest (local) price is $15

    Kaufman Kona - white $4.98 (fabric.com)

    synthrapol & retayne - still looking for best price

    108" quilt backings -

    muslin - Joann's with coupon ?? price

    feel free to add any items...

    108" quilt backing best price I have seen is thousands of bolts at around $5 or $6 per yard I think it was.

    How about someone to do the dishes twice a day and dust the house once a week? I'd like that more than quilt backing!

    Michaels for quilt batting with half price coupon. Hobbs queen size 80/20 regular 14.99 - 1/2 price - 7.50 plus tax. Since I'm doing mostly throw size (50 x 60) quilts for Ronald McDonald House, I can get 2 quilts from each batting with some left over. If I do 10" quilt as you go, I can get 3 quilts from each batting making it 2.67 per quilt.

    I get Kona at Hancock's of Paducah for 3.98 a yard, but have seen lower prices posted from time to time

    AccuQuiltGo is listed at Amazon.com for 218.00 (seller is Fabric Hut) and at Sew Vac Direct for 199.99 (they have good deals on other stuff, too)

    Check "best price" retailers at nextag.com for just about anything

    Someone sent me this site the other day
    http://jhittlesewing.com/sewing/catalog.php
    they have alot of things at really great prices
    they also sell the GO!
    Batting was a biggie for me too!
    I just opened an acct with Quilters Dream Batting and am waiting anxiously for my first order!
    honestly a 30yd roll of batting doesn't last that long!

    I found a 6 1/2 x 24 ruler at Tuesday Morning for $4.99. The top of my wish list is a dedicated sewing room! :)

    My Joann's has white bamboo/cotton muslin in bolts, half price, about 35.00. And I love the fabric so much I bought a second bolt. It's thin, but has a marvelous feel and drape and is not see-through. It's also 200 thread count, so I feel good using it for pillowcases. nice and soft.

    Check out artist supply stores. I found rotary cutters on the mark down table for $3, plexi rulers for $2. ANY markdown table on hardware stores also............. Let's not just shop at the expensive shops, think out of the box!

    I just discovered a on-line resource for 108" backing called www.backsidefabrics.com. They only sell backing fabrics 108" and up. They apparently carry known fabric brands. Prices seem to be reasonable and the selection is the best I have found. I have placed my first order so can't wait to see what I get.

    108" quilt backings - TRY MARSHALL DRY GOODS. That's where I got mine. I think prints are $5.98/yd, solids cheaper.


    The bendable brite light that attaches to your machine. Someone on the Board found the cheapest source - c. $29, which is cheaper than I got them wholesale.

    the 8" round rotating cutting board from Come Quilt with Me.
    I get them wholesale from her so have never looked at other sources. Other than rotary cutter it's the tool I wouldn't do without.
