    Great recycling idea. Wish they'd do something like that around here. Hope your vacation is lots of fun!

    That is a great marketing idea. I think I will suggest it to my LQS.

    Maybe someone could try selling unused fabrics here for $5.00 a pound plus postage. I surely have lots of leftovers.

    Great green idea, I'm lining up now to get some great prices.
    Every store should do this

Your hotel probably has a $3 off coupon they"ll give you. With the coupon it makes it $26. In JH our favorite restaurant was the brewery- not the Thai brewery, but the other one. Good beer (my dh says) & good food.

    We entered Yellowstone from the south entrance and went up the western side, staying in Gartiner last night, and doing the eastern side today, then back around to the western side. Along the western side is where you see the wildlife- yesterday we saw elk in the river, buffalo alongside the road in the meadows, and mtn goat up on the rocky hillsides. We stopped at several of the geyser basins. That is incredible. The one called paint pots were my favorites- very colorful. We went to old faithful but she had just blown her top so we're making our way around there again today. We know an @ time frame now. I hope you have a great trip. I'm sure it'll be beautiful. The wildfires out west has made the mtns. a bit hazy looking, but still beautiful in all their majesty! Enjoy!
    Wow, thanks for all the great info. The quilt shop, brewery and tram are definitely on my list. We are staying ten days so maybe we will see everything----including a grizzly!!!!!!!!!!!

    Love the idea, I have a box of pieces I thought would work with quilts and then changed my mind on. Sell that easy would be great idea.

    That would also be a neat idea for a used fabric store. You know they have rainy day book stores where you can go and trade used books in. I will suggest it to my LQS also.

    I was in charge of all the fabric in the thrift store that I volunteered at, and I would take all
    the small pieces and yards of fabric home to cut them into 6" squares and then made packages of
    100 squares. They sold like hotcakes. One woman said she would buy them for her elderly mother to
    sew quilts.

    This is a fabulous idea. It would be wonderful if this idea could be spread around. I'll do my part!

    Will have to check out this store the next time I go to Jackson Hole which is usually in the spring. Thanks for the tip.
