    I'd go for quality since you are going to be selling

    I am shopping at MSCO and though I would like to go to JoAnn's too, MSCO has some good prices on yardage, most less than $10 on name brand so I just can't bring myself to go to JoAnn's and spend almost the same on a little lower quaility. What would you do?

    What would I do? Me? I'd buy what I needed (or wanted badly) and let hubby eat canned chicken noodle soup for one meal a week.

    I love thousandofbolts. Have only had one experience where the wrong fabric was sent, but they let me keep it and sent the right one to me. If you know the name of the company, you know the fabric is good quality, at least that is what I have always gone by. Thousands doesn't have the newest lines but their prices are fabulous!!Have fun.

    Get a different husband! You are making something to sell and he wants to control the supply of stuff you need for it?! Not okay by me.

    Go with the better quality, especially if you plan to sell your quilts.
