    If it's in your budget give yourself a Christmas present and have fun buying fabric I always feel so good when I can buy fabric for less than 20% off. Merry Christmas.

    I agree with those that told you to go for it..especially with the prices for fabric so high in Canada. Consider it a gift to yourself!

    Fast forward a few years to where you have actually used it all as planned. Be honest!

    I'd look at some of the fixtures also if they are selling them. Sometimes you can pick up great storage or cutting pieces....anyway, go for it!

    OMG, I would probably be there every day. My LQS has a big SuperBowl sale every year and knowning I don't need anything I can't resist the temptation to go. I have more fat quarters than I will ever need so this year I'm going to try and stay away from the fat quarters. If you empty a bolt it's an extra 25% off and most of them have less than 4 yards on them and are really good buys so those are the ones I will look for this year. I have been testing my self to see if I can not buy anything and so far I haven't. So I will save up for that sale. Go got it and stop buying another time. Fabric seems to keep going up anyway so while it on sale you must buy.

    OK - I haven't read through all of the posts - but I am going to gues that nobody has been a big help to you. Not me either! I would especially look for yardage for backing in colors that I know I am going to be making a quilt in. One of our shops has a huge end of year sale and that is what I normally look for - something that would make a good back and possibly even borders for a quilt. I have to say that I have been pretty successful in using those or selling to one of my buddies for a backing. With fabric going up so high I say with 75% off get what you can afford and like.

    Gee if it were closer, I think a bus load of us would be heading there.75% is as good as it gets for we quilters up here in Canada. Sounds like you can't afford not to shop, lol.

    oh, buy all means buy.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, mountian dew in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming. Yea haw what a ride! Suzie Sew

    How I do admire your willpower to go on a "fabric buying diet"! Maybe that's what I should do...then I could quilt more, ya think?!

    Please give me words of "encouragement" to keep me out of the store!!!! hahahahahahahahahahaha
    (I'm sure evryone else would finish their Christmas shopping first!!! ) LOL
    Well, I shopped often right up to the last day!!

    The sales went up to 75% off everything in the store until the last day. On the last day my DH and I had alot of running around to do and when we were done everything I thought we were just going back home. To my surprise my DH drove me to Fabricland store and said "take your time" The last houra of the atore being open the sales were anything up to regualar price of $16.00 was now $1.00 a meter and everything over that price was only $2.00 a meter!!!

    JACKPOT'!!!!!!!!! Nothing like buying $22.00 meter material for $2.00! I think my Dh was still surprised at how conservative I was in my selections but just didn't want to get material that I wouldn't use.

    I'm all set for the next year now!!

    The best bargain I have had this christmas/new year was fabric for $5 per metre and fat quarters for $1 here in Australia that is pretty good! Boy would I love to get to your US sales stores then it would cost me as much to ship it home lol. Maybe I could hire a container
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!
