    Heard about a shop that sells fabric really cheap, so off I go to see what it is all about. OH MY GOSH!!!!! They have flat folds for $1.49 a yd. you must buy at least 1yd. Then they have Henry Glass, Along the Fence Row for $2.49 a yd. They had so many cordinating colors. I bought over $100 worth. What beautiful fabric. I am very fussy about my fabric & this stuff was great. He & his brother buy overstocks . He also had some beautiful batiks for $2 something a yd. I don't use them but what a buy. Henry Glass sells for $8 to 9 in the QS. The great thing about this shop is it was just opened by a guy & his wife who are 82 & 83 yrs. young. Never done any thing like this before.I give them alot of credit. It doesn't appear that they need the money, just wanted to do something. Am telling everyone I know about them.
    He gets new in all the time. His brother was on his way home from the mills with another truck load. Can't wait to see what is new. Donna, The Rustic Quilter

    They are inThayer Mo. Right on the Ark. border. They are only 24 miles from me. They do not have a web site, guess older people think they are too hard to use. HA!!!
    The Henry Glass fabric is to die for. What quality. They also have alot of Joanne's fabric. He said Joanne's commissions the mill to make so much for them & when they make it they have extra, so this guy sells it to this shop
    Hope this helps .Donna, The Rustic Quilter

    The name of the shop is: Thayer Fabric very original Huh??? Phone # is: 417-280-6136 Guy & his wife are: Lawrence & Imogene Porter. Great people. Don't think they could keep up with the internet as their stock seems to change quickly.
    Hope this helps.
