    I have watched with envy as many of you show your thrift store and yard sale finds, never expecting to find anything remotely close in this metro area. Well, this week I hit the jackpot on CL. So far I have 250 yards in full width fabric, 10 magazines, and still sorting the pieces that are not full width. All for less than $150. I love it all!! Literally doubled my stash! The largest piece is over 9 yards. The best part, of course, is I now have two new quilting friends!

    all over 5 yds

    What area of NC are you located. I, also, live in NC, Surry County, never found a deal like this in my area.
