    With the way fabric is going up, I cannot talk anyone out of buying at 50% off lol. Maybe someone else can do it.

    Our local LQS has a 2 week 40% off fabric each February. This year I made a list of what I needed and other than 1 piece I stuck to my list. Got backings and a few coordinates, it really helped me to stay focused and not buy things that were a passing fancy.

    Good luck, I'll say a special prayer for you tomorrow. Let us know how you make out.

    The the first one at the door. In fact, take a tent and camp out there and have your coffee premade in a thermos. Use crime scene tape on the door and the windows and chain yourself to the front door. Then you will be set.

    When I feel tempted, I count the fabrics in my folded stash-now over 1000 and realize I really don't need any more.

    I have just one word to add "Winning", and I do meaning it in the most positive way.

    I'm trying to stave off cravings to go to a fabric yardsale today.

    I'm hoping my old timer's kicks in and I forget about it.

    Honey, take advantage of the 50% off. The price of cotton is going up. Get it while you can.

    That's a very tempting sale and can do a lot of damage to your budget unless you've been saving ahead but I won't put a downer on your sale. With the price of shipping you have pay this may turn out to be a big savings for you. Enjoy whatever you decide to do. :D

    Yep, this sounds like good advice! You can go have fun and still be sensible. Go for it doing this..... Have fun.

    If you were closer maybe I would join you, even though I swore to myself I was going to be good about buying more fabric, but I think the gasoline expense from North Corolina would probably eat up any savings I would have made on the fabric. So have fun and I will be thinking about you.

    Our LQS is having 25% off one item on Saturday.....doesn't sound as good as your sale.
