    Now that I have your attention I have to tell you about my great deal. My LQS that I go to was having a clearance sale on some of her fabric so she could make room for her new lines so she had it marked 75% off! Yes, 75% off! I have a lot of quilts I need to be making somewhere in the future (probably the next 10 yrs. or so) so I figured I better take advantage of it & pick up fabric for my backings. This is the deal I got: 35 yards of fabric, original price would have been $325.25, after 75% off total cost was $87.33 for a grand total savings of $237.92! I think I need to quit doing the happy dance or I'll wear out my shoes. Now I just need to get busy & start sewing. These deals don't happen very often at the LQS. I couldn't even get fabric for that price at Joann's. I think I'll be smiling in my sleep.

    What a deal!!! Would like to see the fabrics. My LQS has a back room with fabrics 50% off. It's great when you get there when they have just moved fabric back there to make room up front!!!

    How can you not buy? Great deal, you'll love your stash!

    That's how I started my stash, two quilt shops went out of business a couple of months of each other. Everything marked 75% off.
