Deal of the century



Boy, did I luck into a great deal. I'm not a bargain or sale shopper by any means and other than stash shopping, I really hate to shop. But on Thursday night at my stitch group (I should probably say quilting group as they are all quilters and I'm the lone stitcher!) a lady had some great WDW threads she was using on a wool felt hanging. She mentioned that she got them at this quilt shop that is going out of business and they were now at 50% off - $1.00 per skein!!! Well, who could pass up a price like that? I sure couldn't even if I never use them - I can always gift them. I just got home and I bought 43 skeins of WDW and 29 of Gentle Art (mostly Shaker colors) for $75.60 with tax!!! I have no idea where I'm going to store them all but I just couldn't pass up that kind of a deal. I shouldn't have to buy WDW or GAST threads for quite some time! What a great way to start off the weekend.
