    I was at the LQS in a neighboring town and found 12 different bolts of Westminster Fibers Donna Dewberry 27 Happy Flowers fabric. They had just put it on the $1.98 table to make room for new fabrics coming in. This fabric retails for $7.95 a yard and I got it for $1.98 a yard.

    I bought 5 yards of each bolt which turns out to be 4 each in the purples, pinks and yellows. We do alot of charity quilts for kids that are removed from there homes so this will make several of them and most likely I'll use some of the fabric to also make a few tote bags.

    I'd been looking at that fabric off and on for a while and never dreamt they'd ever put it on the $1.98 table.

    I seriously considered doing so but am not a greedy person and knew some of the gals in the quilt guild would want some and I also knew a high school was coming the next day to bring 17 students(boys and girls) to buy fabric who have are advid quilters group in that school.

    Yesterday when I went to the sew group one gal asked me when was the last time I was in the store and I knew she knew I had been in the day before so I told her "yesterday" and all the gals asked if I had seen this fabric on the table and I told them yes that I had purchased some. The gal asked me how much and I told her 5 yards each off 12 different bolts. There are no secrets around that small sleepy town and they had heard someone had bought several yards off each bolt. They each had bought 1 yd each of their favorite color schemes.

    You can call them and ask them to ship to you. One lady has already done so from this board I've been told after I showed the Batiks I got the other month.

    If you want the info PM me and I'll give it to you.
