The Fabric Patch is Closing

Last night was a pre-GOOB sale for 100 customers. It was packed in there. It was fun. When Jane was ringing me up, she said I was going to get kicked out of StashBusters.

I bought six or eight five-yard cuts of background fabric, a couple of backings, batting, straight pins, curved applique scissors, sewing machine needles. I resisted the temptation on a LOT of fabric. I might have redeemed myself with StashBusters!

A couple of things I need to think about. I'll go back this weekend to see if they're still there.

My whole five-year quilty life has been spent there .... it was sad.

Oh, Vicky, kind of bittersweet. Great buys but you will miss them :(
Are you in any small groups or guilds? I don't remember you ever mentioning any -- I think FP was your group! And I know how meaningful quilting has been to you.

It is always sad to hear of a quilt shop closing and I know you have so much fun there and such good memories. Glad you were able to make the best of it and pick up some much needed fabric! :)

I'm just glad they were there as long as they were or we wouldn't have you as a quilting buddy!

It's so hard to lose a good quilt shop. Are there other good ones in your area?

ForestJane said...

At least you're not hiding your fabric addiction from us!

I bought a lot too, when my neighborhood Hancock's announced it was going out of business. How can you resist all those big % off signs?

It probably feels like losing an old friend, in a way.

Sorry to hear about the tumble down the stairs. Are you all bruised on the backside?

It's like moving- it isn't easy, but sometimes presents new opportunities. Good luck finding a new 'spot'.

How sad... Any reasons for GOOB? Glad you were able to get some goodies. (I left the quilt show with out anything this past Sunday!)

There have been several quilt shops going out of business here lately. But then a few more open, so I guess the cycle continues!! I just hope that there's never a time where the ONLY place to buy fabric is at a chain store. THAT would be sad!!
