    Ohhhh ya I've done my part !! :)

    Great Driver article Thanks !! Most men I know definately like quilts, can't imagine down time would be much fun, for some reason don't see LQS putting in the right parking tho.
    Hmmmm.... maybe a new market at the local Truck Stop, pre cut kits.
    Happy Quilting all !!

    Maybe someone should tell WalMart those facts. Seems to me that they bare loosing out on some of those $$$$. Maybe they will bring back their fabric department.

    I just looked on the HGTV website and couldn't find anyway to contact them - thank goodness I quilt better than I search on the internet. Maybe someone else would be successful.

    My bf is a trucker and I am trying to get him started, he doesn't have time on the road, dedicated run, but he is home for 2-5 days in between - he use to sew the squares chaining for his grandmother in graqde school then his mom when he was in high school, I think he needs to pick it up.
    Working on the convincing part - he picks out great fabrics!

    We should all boycott quilting fabric suppliers. Just for one month, maybe they would be forced to lower their prices. I know that is hard to go cold turkey, but supply and demand sets the price. Where there is demand, price is high.

    Just my two cents; can't afford more than that after buying fabric.

    That averages out to about $171.43 per quilter. Hmmm... something's screwy here... I can spend more than that in 30 minutes' online shopping! That can't be right, if most of you quilters are like me. I don't know where they got their figures, but I suspect they should do a little more research. Either that, or we're a darned good bunch of liars!

    171.43 per quilter. Last week I spent $300 on batiks, yesterday I spent $110 for backing and red and blue fabric for soldiers. The end of February I spent $140 on batiks for my Dresden plate quilt. And at the beginning of January another $140 on holiday fabric. That $560 so far this year, I'm way over my share.

    That's not including the $300 the day after thanksgiving. When is the QA (quilters annymous) meeting. Oh well, just one stitch at a time.

    with the Joann's ssale - I am way ahead of my share for this year ! I almost always buy on sale - so I figure I get more than my share all teh time and the stash keeps getting bigger - maybe one day I will be able to qit working so I can quilt more than on the weekends - and use up the stash ! - wishful thinking probably !

    Loved it ~ too funny. Um, sadly, I think I am along these lines myself. I refuse to go back over the year and prove it up. :shock:

    From Don-isewman. That 3.6 billion, for fabric, will have a $$ increase more, on April 9th. My quilt guild is planning a bus trip, to go to 4 or 5 quilt shop's that day. So I've been saving my nickel's and dimes. Don-isewman

    If we each spend around $171.00 each then I have $100.00 to go. Look out shops, here I come. LOL Oh, I guess I had better wait, it's early in the year yet.
