    Was this a good deal?

    I am relatively new to quilting (just started in August) so I don't know the answer to this. My husband went and picked up my sewing cabinet and the husband's owner offered to sell my husband fabric and thread and a thread holder for $160.00. I wasn't there so my husband just went and took the offer. Here are pictures of everything he got. Was it a good deal? Not that it will change anything if it isn't but I'm curious.

    It looks like a good deal to me. That thread holder looks very sturdy and holds a lot of thread - a lot more than the one I got that cost $29.00 + tax and if you figure each piece of fabric is a minimum of $1.00 per quarter of a yard - it will add up so fast you will see he got a great deal.

    OMG - Yes, that is a great deal! Somewhere on the QB there is a picture of me holding a teeny little bag of batiks that I bought in Paducah that cost me $50.

    Where's the picture of the sewing cabinet? If you paid $1 for each spool of thread that would be $124 just for the thread so you got GREAT deal!

    There are over 100 spools of thread alone. If the price were a dollar a spool, that would be $100. Sure was a good deal

    If you don't kiss your DH for this great decision, the rest of us gals on the QB will line up to do it for you but, be warned, we'll charge a piece of your DH's stash (he DID buy it!) for taking care of your job. ENJOY!

    Looks like he did get a deal. Maybe you should take him with you to shop. I think some people just attract good deals. Hope you enjoy playing with all of this.
