    Talk you out of it no way, cause Your husband called and said for you to buy any thing you wanted. (25 years of being with my parents who were retailers pays off)

    Yup, I agree, this is not a problem I would have trouble dealing with. I work in a beautiful little quilt shop/machine sales shop, and the best we can do there for discount is 30 %. So go for it, twice as much fabric for your money, stock up !!!!! lol

    I would tell you to drink some scotch and stay at home because you can't drink and drive, but...ummm...you need the money for something else I am sure and you probably already have enough fabric and...and...and...

    I'm making the Glacier star Pattern. that thing calls for 16 yds of fabric total so it was a good time to get it.

    I'm a practical person. Take only what you can afford to spend. Buy only what you know that you can't get elsewhere. Such as 'new demo's - Miracle Chalk just floored me at the NQA show), Put a $20 in your wallet to pay for parking and to grab something to eat on the way back. Take your camera so we can all drool over what we didn't get to see. And most of all...have a wonderful time.
