    My DH and I took a day trip today to Va. First we went to Mabry Mills. Then we went on over to Floyd to School house fabrics. They do have a lot of fabric. However, I did not think it was worth my drive. If I go back I will have save up a lot money. There really was not anything under $7 a yard. I am sorry but I am tight with my money. I also look for deals and savings. I did not see any deals. So weekend afte next I will be making a trip to quilting quest which is a lot closer to home.

    Amazing how the price of fabric is going up. I had a hard time finding fabric in Florida that was less then $10.00 a yard. That is still better then the $38.00 per meter fabric was when I was in Australia 2 years ago!!

    That is what I usually use. It is very hard for me to pay that much for fabric. I love quilting so I try to save money when I can.

    I just love going up to Mabry Mill when I fly to Virginia. Did they still have the lovely quilt of Mabry Mill on the wall in the gift shop area? It is absolutely beautiful. Hopefully you took the time to eat at the restaurant while you were there. I did the last time and it was delicious. My dad challenged me to make a quilt of Lover's Leap up there on the Blue Ridge Mtn. before he died so I still need to that one of these days.

    I bought some of the new "Bliss" fabric for boarders today and it was $10.70 a yard.....If I didn't need this specifically I wouldn't have spend the money. I hope they (the fabric God's) don't price us out of fabric..our choices will have to be very specific with the high cost

    I'm a bit confused these days with prices. Online shops have fabric so much cheaper!! And it's top quality so I've been doing a lot of shopping online :D
    Don't get me wrong, I love shopping at the LQS but not at some of the prices :(
    Must be the overhead, which is understandable but in this economy I have to find bargains.

    My mom and I took a trip to Schoolhouse not too long ago. I found only two pieces of fabric and they were not for quilting. My mom says that they used to have wonderful prices but for me, too high now. They do have LOTS of quilting fabrics though.

Not been since May so prices may have changed but is worth the trip. Also have Christmas shop and pottery. Hope this mays it easier on the pocketbook.

    Did not eat there. And yes, I walked around the corner in the gift shop and there was the land scape quilt of the mill. Whoever did this did a great job. I took a pic of it.
