Me and My Fabric Passion

I haven’t had a photo taken of me in a long time. So today, when I received my first WHOLE BOLT of FABRIC, I was so enjoying it, that I had my hubby snap a few shots of me with it.

I know it’s crazy, but I love my fabric and sewing. And this fabric (Michael Miller's AFFIRMATIONS #C-2273), it’s really inspiring… take a look at a swatch of it.

I bought some of it from eQuilter, and when I received it liked it, a lot! Enough to want to put a strip / piece of it on each quilt back I make… for a long time. When I went to order more I discovered it “sold out” everywhere I looked.

So, I did want any fabric-holic would do; I contacted the manufacturer. I was put in touch with a wholesale vendor where, I was able to acquire this great fabric for just $2.55 a yard (wholesale bolt pricing). So, just a few days later, I have my bolt of fabric.

What else? Where did I get this great deal and terrific service? Marshall Dry Goods Company, in business in Arkansas since 1944. Check them out and tell them I sent you!

Suzy :D

PS: You wouldn't BELEIVE the number of boxes of fabric that came out of my little sewing room at my last house! If nothing proves a fabri-holic it's over thirty boxes of quilting and other fabrics!

That's a great price, is it good quality?

It's Michael Miller. Just like the stuff from the Quilt Shops.

It's a GREAT resource for something like, say, quilt backs! You can get two or three backs for about $40, they are just all going to be the same fabric.

Also, it's a wholesale place, but they sell to the public.

I ordered it on Friday and received it Monday (with a three-day, holiday weekend in between)! Talk about speedy service!!!

I'm VERY happy about the whole thing.
