Just wondering how many people secretly - or not so secretly - wish that they could be the buyer for their LQS? (Even for a day...)

Just to see and feel all the samples. Oh yes.

YES! Because honestly some of those fabrics make me wonder who chose them. Then again, someone else would be saying that if I was doing the choosing :)

I'd have to agree with Sharon, seeing and feeling all the samples....... Then again, I would want to take half of them home with me!!!

Yes, I do. My LQS carries a large percentage of traditional type fabrics and I tend to like more modern or even wild fabric lines. It's probably a good thing they don't stock what I like. I'd be poor.

Nope - not even the slightest interest.

Well, yes...lol! I did actually tell the Joann's in Lynchburg, VA that they had the ugliest fabric I had ever seen and I would sure love to talk to their buyer. That was about 3 months ago. I went in to Joann's while I was there last week and lo and behold I had to tell them that the fabric selections were great and it was nice to see some pretty fabric there for once. :^)
