    I may just have to start shopping on the net. After looking at all they have, it is soooooo tempting. Thanks for the info. And please share a photo when you get your package.

    That is $14 at the per scrap price. Quite a haul I thought but cashier didn't bat an eyelash.

    I guess they keep a chipper attitude because they get to touch fabric all day ;-) and maybe quilters are easier to deal with than the general public?
    That's my kind of deal :) Which LQS in our area does this? I'm in Canton...just a hop, skip and a jump from Woodstock!

    I love the high heel fabric, too cute. Great deal. Wish I had known about the quilt show. Went to Quiltfest in Pigeon Forge last weekend.

    Was wondering where this LQS is too, sounds like a fun place.

    This is the fabric I got from ordering the scrap bag. I ordered two and did get some repeat fabric. The doll at the top has another one on the other side if someone wants to make the dolls I will send them to you. Just pm me with your info and I will get them out to you.

    Where did you place your scrap bag order?

    Just what I need; more scraps! LOL. I have managed to locate 4 (yes 4) storage totes overflowing with scraps! It would be fun to see what others consider scraps though. My LQS sells scraps for .25 each. That is a rip off! If they would let you fill a zip bag as described in a prior post, it would be great. If I were to sell mine at that rate, I could probably finance a new car. (Hmm, I feel a yardsale approaching this Spring, whenever that decides to arrive.)

    My opinion of a scrap is any pieces 4 inches or smaller and mostly irregular in size. Most of what I consider my scraps are in this category. Also, if you don't want to do the yard sale, I am sure many members would be glad to have first chance to buy your 'yard sale' items. Just an idea. :-)

    4my3boyz.com has scrap bags for $7.95 /pound. Most are smaller scraps, and they have various types--like food fabric,patriotic, children, etc.

    Just doing my bit as an enabler

    http://www.virginiaquilter.com
    $12.50 pound--high quality judging from the one I got last year-- 3- 3.5 yds.

    And to REALLY blow your budget, here is a source for bolts!

    I ordered one of the 3 lb bags from fabric.com once and was very pleased. Most of the fabric was close to a full yard. There were some weird colors/prints in there, but overall i was happy!
