    Hello all, I hit goodwill today and walked away with 46.5 yards of fabric for less than $34.....YEAH me!!!! There was about 30 different fabrics in various sizes. Only 2 were 1 yard each. There was a lot of different purples but you cannot beat the price and I know I will use it sometime.

    WOW! That is great, I love GW so far this year I have found 4 large cardboard rolls of fabric with several yards for $3.99 each. Can't beat it.

    I've been lucky recently, too. I have found large solid colored pieces that were big enough to use for backing. So happy :D

    I know. Everything was either $1.07, $2.07, or $3.07. 4 yards of decent fabric for $3.07. The cashier was cracking up because I was giddy with excitement about my find.

    Lucky you...I went to both Salvation Army & Goodwill today. As usual, not a single bit of fabric to be found. I need to go thrift store anywhere but here.
