    Great find and great idea for where to look! I'd never have thought of that and we have an abundance of thrift stores in the area! Have fun with the "found" fabrics! Wendy in VA

    Congratulations on a great find. Guess I need to keep looking, maybe someday one of the shops around here will have fabric.
