Saturday evening I mailed an order to Keepsake for two yards of fabric that is $8.96 a yard. Sunday afternoon I found the same fabric on another site for $6.25. GRRRRRRRRRR!!!

After purchasing fabric, never, ever, look at the same fabric at another site :shock: then you can avoid the irritation :wink: :roll: :roll:

I don't know why, Boston, but it happens to me all the time with all sorts of things. I decide I want to buy something, and research all the available outlets locally, and the minute I have paid for said item, one of the shops has a sale and reduces same. It's enough to make me tear my hair out, so I can understand your frustration. It's a wonder I am not bald.

The other site was called Ann's. They are also in New Hampshire. I found her in the collection of 200 shops where you look up something and it tells you which shops have it.

I feel your pain! It's always a toss up as to whether to buy now or wait for a sale or find it less expensive elsewhere. You must have felt very motivated about this fabric, so I would just decide to feel good about it. It probably all evens out in the wash and you will get a great price on your next purchase. Enjoy and send pics!

I had bought some before, up home, and when I saw it on their site I decided to get some. I say decided because the decision came nearly 3 months ago. I finally actually go ahead and order and then.........
