Well next time you decide to go give me a shout. I will try to meet you there. On the map we are about the same distance from it in opposite directions.

Thanks for pointing out Obie's I've got it marked...when we just went thru Lancaster I felt so guilty about the 3 vintage machines we were toting (2 of which I bought in Lancaster) that I just picked up some scraps in my favorite Mennonite thrift store...it pays to ask the waitress if she knows anyone who wants to get rid of old machines!

I have been wanting to hit Obies's too!!!! Wow! Those pics are intriguing...are the prices good?

We have a Surplus City in Williamsport, PA, about 30 mins from me. It is opposite the way I go for work and other stuff, but try to make it once every other month or so. Prices are great, and good name fabrics too. Have to be careful though, cause some are seconds because they have been printed backwards or upside down or double printed...but so far I haven't found many of those.

Nursie I don't know about the prices. I have not made it there yet. Hopefully soon though.

Nursie Williamsport is where I first saw a surplus city last year. I wanted to go there so bad but we were only in Williamsport for 1 day and that was a Sunday they were closed. When I got home I looked them up and found they they had a few locations. So I went to the Altoona one a few months ago.


Maybe we should try and plan a Obies trip and meet up?
Sounds like a fun place to check out lol. I could get in a lot of trouble there lol


Edit: Bonnie's blog said that what she bought was 3.49 a yard at Obies

Sounds good. I have a wedding on Sept 10th, and 24th. I have a quilt retreat last weekend in October and our daughter will be home from New Zealand 5 weeks starting beginning of November. All my weekends between now and the Sept 10th wedding will be spent finishing the quilt for their wedding present. I am sure we can find some time to meet though if we try hard enough.
