The debate

Today I took a well earned annual leave day for my birthday. I planned the day starting with helping in a craft class with my son's class. Then off to a favorite quilt shop an hour away for 2 hours of uninterupted serious fabric shopping..... bliss. All was perfect until I remembered with a shudder that this quilt shop tear your fabric off the bolt. I feel the tear everytime and it always annoys me that there are always threads everywhere. I'd been given money for my birthday to spend on fabric. I bit the bullet and asked the lady if it would be at all possible to cut my fabric, not tear.... a fairly innocent question....not too unreasonable. She said no.... Huh? Really? Ok, tear away, I thought.... Tear away for the last time. I got home, squared up my fabric, cleaned up all the loose threads and low and behold all of my pieces of fabric were well short of what I had actually requested. Not happy, not fair, not ever going back.

It is easier to shop online sadly, no travel, cheaply well cut fabrics. Sad huh?

I think I've banged in about this before. Sorry, just gave me the shits!!

All that aside, I got loads of gorgeous fabrics. I'll post pics tomorrow
