Well so quickly after saying I never had purchased 9 yards of anything...I did it again. Randy's quilt shop is closing as the owner retires. He marked down all fabrics 60% and books/thread/notions all 75%. I bought several 5 yard pieces for backings and one 9 yard piece to back a large kit I got at Mid Atlantic in February. It was a zoo, I arrived about an hour after they opened so the line to get fabric cut was already long. You had to take the bolts that were left on the shelves or spy someone's stash ahead of you and hope they didn't buy the rest of the bolt. Amazingly everyone stayed patient, even the employees were keeping their cool trying to help the overwhelming group of quilters. He is closing the door next Wed I believe so it would pay to drop by soon if you want to stock up on some deeply discounted fabric. I have also always thought the new Olfa cutter that advertises an easy change blade was neat, but I didn't really need another one.....but for 75% off......I got one.
