    Our goodwill in Australia never has stuff like that.

    I think I do also, have never found fabric in my GW, and only find very scrappy pieces of cotton in the SA. But, one of these days??????????????

    You are so fortunate. What store did you buy the fabric?

    Just looked at your location - you're in a highly populated area, its hard to find useable stash in our sparsely populated area of NW Montana - too rural for lg volumes of anything. I am excited for anyone who hits the jackpot in recycling fabric finds!

    I didn't even know that Goodwill sold fabric, next time I will stop into the one at the town I go to shop at and check theirs out.

    What a find. I never see fabric in our local Goodwill store. I guess everyone here just keeps all their fabric.

    Did anybody ask "How do you acquire a stash?"

    I too live in an area not too populated so peeps hang on to their stuff or sell it. I would like to say that most finds for everyone are hit or miss....you're more likely to hit by visiting often. Our GW puts all crafts in a bin including the fabric. SAVERS hangs theirs on hangers, SVDP is on a shelf and SA hangs theirs up too. Always remember, workers at many charieties have first dibs B4 the public......probably not what the person donates would want to know.
