    So excited!! More fabric in my future

    So excited!! Just booked tickets to Seoul, South Korea in July. And I am really looking forward to fabric shopping. My favorite place is a 7 story building, chock full of every and any kind of fabric you could ever want. They sell wholesale there so bare minimum purchase is 1yd...and some places won't sell less than 5 yds. Prices are just wonderful...I've found the more you buy at these little "shops", the better the price but it averages $3-$4 a yd. Very high quality fabric lines and wonderful patterns. So I will pack lightly and carry an empty duffel bag. Last trip, I brought 80 yds of fabric home. I always have photos of my quilts on my phone to prove that it's for my own use.

    Seoul is very hot this time of year but I am willing to suffer! Wish I could take you all with me for a condensed version of a shop hop~

    No wonder you are excited. It sounds like quite the adventure. When you find what you like, make sure you buy enough yardage. Not easy to pop over for another yard or so! Post your purchases when you get home so we can see what you bought.

    I miss living in the Far East because I loved the fabric shops. Have fun.

    Sounds like a wonderful adventure! Be sure to post pics of your fabrics when you get home so we can all be jealous

    Sounds like fun. Wish I could be there but you can buy a few fabrics in honor of me while you're there.

    I have a tip for you...pack clothes you are not in love with and leave them there...more room for fabric in your luggage that way. We (my husband and I) loved to shop when we traveled..we always took last years' clothes and left them to make room for our purchases!!! No one knows you anyway so what difference if you have on older stuff!

    Have a good time! I didn't realize there would be that much fabric to be bought...sounds like a "destination vacation" to me...
