    Lens Mill- Waterloo

    I stopped at Lens Mill Waterloo to look for a quilt back. I found a 108 inch wide at $9.59 a meter? Anyway the 3 meter long piece ( about 117 inches) cost just under $30.00. Quite a good deal to me. Name:  image.jpeg

    Seems like a good price to me too. Quilting will show up nicely on this fabric.

    Don't you just love Len's? I know I do! Great find.

    Do they do mail order? I looked at their home page and I don't think they do. Too Bad.

I had to really hunt for my wide back at that price. Most wide backs were $15 to $20 not bad either but it is like a safari to find what you want. I love it!

    That is a great find at that price. I rarely get to any Lens Mills store (living just east of Toronto) but when I do, I feel like I died and went to Fabric heaven. I've been to the north Toronto and Cambridge stores only.

    What a dreamy coloration! I would love to wrap up into a quilt with this backing. Congratulations on getting a nice break on the price too.

    Beautiful backing, I'd love a quilt done with that.

    I like to make lists. I also like to leave them laying on my sewing table and then guess what's on the list while at the fabric store. Fun game.

    Did they have other colours in this price range? I usually head to the Lens at Hawksville or Guelph as they are a little closer. I still need to check out the Barrie location. If you need wide backs the Post Office in Newton (Evelyn's) or Kathy's Dry Goods in Poole has a good selection and better prices than regular wide backs at Lens.

    It was the only one in that price range that I saw but I didn't check the solids as I wanted a patterned fabric to hide any quilting mistakes.

    They had the wide stuff on sale in October. Do you check for the coupons on line?
