    You are not going to believe this but made history or something like that. Visited Goodwill Pound store again this Friday and you guessed it, I collected more material.
    A lady standing next to me said to her husband "I wish I quilted". I said "I DO" and then she pointed me to even more materials. At the minute the pile is still in my car, don't think I need all this if I figure how to sell some, postage confusing I might put some up for you to share in the mother loads...

    The local Goodwill store near me never has good fabric. Their prices seem to get higher and higher.

    We don't have a Goodwill Pound Store in our town and there is rarely any fabric or sewing machines or even quilting books in the store. The Goodwill puts this up on their auction site, Shopgoodwill.com. I have won some fabric but you can't look at the fabric before bidding so you usually wind up with junk. The people who list the fabrics don't know anything about them so they don't know if they are cotton, blends, polyesters, wool etc. They usually will list home dec fabric or upholstery fabric as winter weight quilting fabric!!!!

    I love to shop at our local DAV. Goodwill stores here are kind of expensive.
