    Yesterday a friend and I went to the Connecting Threads Warehouse Sale in Vancouver, Washington. We didn't "need" anything but thought we'd find a few scraps at $2.96 a pound. Since we had no idea how much fabric weighs (other than husbands' complaints about the incredible burden it puts on an RV :roll: ) we apprehensively approached checkout with all we could carry. I got all this for $38!! And digging separately we spent the same amount. I was amazed at how many people were there and how friendly and cooperative they were on a really hot day.

    Sorted -- somewhat

    Oh my, it is a good thing I don't live anywhere near there. I would have no control.

    Joyce, where the heck is that store?? Or was it an "event"?

    Would love to check it out! Hope all is well with you!

    It was an "event" and I got an email announcing it. I drove, Bonnie directed, so I have no idea where it was. :lol: Actually, it was a warehouse area behind a business on the eastside, we waited in a LOOONNNG line, were fed in in groups and cautioned to keep the noise down. Then we waited in another long line to have our fabric weighed and another line to pay. It was fun! My orders from them have had a Vancouver address but I think they have only an internet store. I did see on QB they had a warehouse sale in Ohio.

    A hot day in Washington is several days of mid to upper 90's in September after a dreary, cool summer. 100 in Washington is "OMG is it hot!" I lived in Louisiana so I feel your pain.

    Just a heads up ... this was a SPECIAL EVENT at Connecting Threads ... they normally don't have fabric at the headquarters.

    They also had yarn from Knit Picks there too!

    Joyce, where the heck is that store??

    It is off of Mill Plain on the east side of 205, you take Mill Plain and turn on 132nd and then wind through an apartment complex to get there.
    It is in the Craft America warehouse, they used to have a retail store, but closed that part a couple of years ago to my great sadness.
    I am so sad I missed it, I was a mile away at the Craft Warehouse this weekend at their truckload of fabric sale instead.
