    Let us know how your sale went. I wish I loved closer so I could go. Not that I need anything more, but, you never know what others are selling that you can't live without... LOL!

    Oh Good Luck with the sale. By the way, wear an apron with your money in it so it doesn't come up missing. I have heard of this happening.

    I agree with Mamaw and I have purchased from members of the QB with great satisfaction!

    Perhaps you should invite quilters and sewers with a flyer, stating that it's a quilting sale-- and the price range. For just a garage or rummage sale, I wouldn't expect to pay more than about $1 a yard.

    I agree with calling it something other than a garage/rummage sale. Have a quilter's sale and then later if you have a lot of other household things you can still have a moving sale

    I don't mind sales where items aren't marked. I always ask how they are selling the fabric -- by the yard, by the piece, or what. The answer to that question gives me an idea of what they have in mind and how negotiable they are. They often tell the whole story on the fabric and that itself reveals a lot.

    In addition, frequently sales where prices are not marked often are the sales where if you bring a pile up to the seller, you will get a good deal.

    I sent out postcards to all friends and Quilt guilds that I could find addresses. The local quilt guild members that I thought would be interested, too.
