    Boo Hoo, am I alone in this?? I'm always, well nearly always, too late for those fabulous sales on here. Such great offers, and Rats! someone just got it!

    Gritting teeth, going back for another trolling of the sales, click click click.

    It has happened to me, too. How do these others get in ahead of us? I've gotten enough good deals, though, to make up for some of the missed ones.

    I know what you mean. I'm starting to fall behind on my cleaning and sleep because I keep missing sales when I do those. :lol: I try to check more often, but then again I spend more money on supplies now that I didn't before because I have become so addicted. I guess I need to actually start sewing the fabric into something so that hubby doesn't notice ;)

    I miss most of them too. I work days (except this week) by the time I get home and do everything I need to do for the day I can sometimes get on for 1 hour before bedtime but with everyone posting during the day I miss alot. Dial-up doesn't help either. Pictures load so slow.

    I made it first once this summer, and was so pleased to be able to get something I had always wanted. Sadly the two items never arrived, and I have just had my claim upheld on Pay Pal.

    They really do move fast on this board. I posted some scraps for sale late night and had about four replies in less than 20 minutes.
    I am always too late because I work and it seems like a lot of sales are already done by the time I get off work. I like seeing good prices on patterns. One way is to post a request, often you will get a reply. I have requested patterns a few times and folks come through and I do see folks post fabric requests and several folks reply.

    There are always two sides to everything. I am on the other boat. I always see the adds on time and on occasion have been the first one to request a freebie. Not often, but real good ones I must admit. My problem is that I see a post within minutes, sometimes seconds, with great fabrics, cutting systems, kits, etc and I don't have the money to get it, because I have no job, which is the reason I am here so much to begin with. See the cycle? If you have a job you are too late, if you are unemployed you are too broke. I am sure there is a happy medium, like retirement, but I need a job for that first.

    Maria, stop whining.

    I can't get it to load right now. Must be high demand.

    I have been lucky a few times however I almost hate looking because there are so many fabrics "To die for" and I have a very strict budget to adhere to. I was able to trade two yards of fabric for a book earlier this week. That was fun.

    As a fellow Texan I feel the same way. I figured most of the people who get there first must stay up 24/7. I look for hours and I am always late too.
