Here's what happened to me on Tuesday: I was hired to lecture at a quilt guild where one of the members had just passed away. She left her stash to the guild and they were selling it. . . for $3.00 per yard! What's more, each piece was neatly rolled and secured with masking tape with the yardage amount written on the tape. Most were 3-8 yard pieces and were by Kaffe Facett, Moda, Hoffman, etc. NICE fabric. And get this: there were 24 HUGE tubs full! About 25 rolls in each tub, segregated into colors so neat and tidy! I tried not to look but I was there for 3 hours and needed 5 yards for the back of the top I finished last week-- and finally, I just had to look.
$3.00 a yard people!!
So, I'm now in the red. . . . :-( But you know what? I have some WONderful new fabric and the quilt guild made $72 just from little ole me!
