    DH spotted a Craigslist ad for a moving sale starting tomorrow. It mentioned quilting supplies so I checked the ad and it said "early inquiries welcome" and a telephone number. I called this morning and she said it was mainly fabric but some other related things too. I went to check it out and got the fabric (great big box)--yardage, nice scraps, a few unfinished projects. She also had tons of thread, multiples of same colors through and poly, ribbons and loads of patterns and books. She wanted to sell in quantities so she could get rid of stuff quicker (she was selling all her furniture & most household items also).

    I got the the fabric and some of the books and patterns and a few other items for $15. Here's some pics:

    Definitely treasures. It's nice to see what others find. Many times when I look, I say 'I have that fabric' and can often recognize something from my stash.

    Wow! What a haul! I just bought the loon lake pattern this summer and love the looks of the Debbie Mumm one two over from it. Great fabric too.
    You'll have a lot of fun with all of that stuff.
