So when I went on my quilt retreat a couple of weeks ago I had a chance to go to another town about 15 minutes away and go to this fabric store. Well that's a loose term because it's not what you would traditionally think of when you hear fabric store and they sell clothes and belts and some other random stuff.
They get the fabric donated from the manufacturers sell it for .99 cents a yard and all the profits go to Shriner's Children hospital. So it's a total win-win. I get some awesome fabric and money gets donated to a very worth cause.
The whole places is like 5 or 6 different rooms in a little shopping area. There's cottons, rayon's,homespun's, dress fabrics, upholstery fabrics,buttons, laces,zippers, patches and just a huge variety of fabrics. You have to be willing to sort through it all,but it's a total treasure hunt. Most of the fabrics are on bolts but there's a couple of rooms with just boxes of random pre-cut fabrics.
Here's the fabric I ended up buying. The fabric on the left is a pre-cut piece I found that's about a yard. I think I'm going to turn it into a couple of scarfs. The fabric on the fight is gong to be turned into a table cloth and maybe some napkins.
