    While crusing around the Ben Franklin site this morning, I saw that they have the gallon jugs of Mary Ellen's Best Press for (I think) thirty-three dollars. They had many more scents that I had never seen. Cherry, for one. I personally like the lavender and they had that too.

    I had forgotten about them for buying fabric too. They have the red rooster line of fabrics that I want to make my next quilt with ... And they had tons of cutting rulers. One I want is the Marti Mitchell kalidescope one. I am going to take a ride in tomorrow and shop around.

    I heard there were gallons jugs of Mary Ellen's, but I thought they were closer to $50. I really love that stuff.

    I haven't seen a Ben Franklin's since I was a little girl. The stores I remember were dimestores. What are they comparable to nowadays?

    Yes girls the store is on line at benfranklincrafts.com. I am gonna smell some of the others while I am there ... tee hee hee ... Wel it's just a sniff!

    Ducky ... The Ben Franklin's here are pretty nice. They remind you of a michael's store. I tell you what, Lots of the quilting supplies were way cheaper than in a quilt store! Or some of the fabric stores too. I like that, a LOT!

    Make sure if you buy fabric from BF, you buy it IN the store, not online.
    Some of the fabric they get has "mistakes" in it. One of the reasons why it is sometimes cheaper. I buy most of my fabric from there because that is mainly all I have here. When I buy, I usually lay the piece out I am wanting and check it thoroughly.

    Try this page for Mary Ellen's Best Press by the gallon:

    http://www.benfranklincrafts.com/servlet/Categories

    Then in the search window, type in Mary Ellens Best Press -- I thought it would let me give you the correct page but it's being stubborn.... :D

    I haven't used Best Press yet, but while ordering some books from Amazon, I looked there, and they had it for under $30, plus around $7 shipping. It ships from JoAnn, so didn't qualify for free super saver shipping.

    FYI - I was in BF in Sandpoint, ID and the one in Oldtown ID (right on WA border) last week. They both had beautiful fabric. The sales lady told me they are all independently owned now so they can buy the fabric THEY want not just stuff sent from "headquarters" (like Wal-Mart). I bot some lovely flat folds for $3.95 to $4.50/yd. There is also a great BIG one in Monroe, WA. Have fun quilting......
