    I have been envious of the great scores some of y'all find but nomore!

    An ad on my local Craigslist for a fabric sale last Thurs/Fri had bummed me out as I couldn't go on Friday and didn't see it until too late on Thursday. So I emailed my number and asked for a call if another time would be available.

    I just got home with 48+ yards of fabric and 25 spools of Mettler thread for $100!!!

    The lady had owned a quilt shop that she closed due to moving then just got married again and didn't want to move it all again.

    Color me estatic :mrgreen:

    Wow!! You hit it big time. Maybe I should start checking CL. If I didn't spend so much time on this board I might score.

    Fantastic find...maybe there's hope for me yet! Haven't had anything "amazing" to report in the fabric/notions dept.

    Lucky you, I never look anywhere and of course I don't find any good deals. I have a big cabinet almost full of fabrics and really don't think I will get it sewn into quilts anytime soon.
