    Default A fun Saturday!

    One of our local quilt shops hosted a quilting event yesterday featuring Tin Lizzie long arm quilt machines. It was a combination "show and tell" of some absolutely gorgeous quilts made by Janie Donaldson, building a darling patchwork table runner for us to take home, practice long arm quilting on the Tin Lizzie longarms, lunch, chat with fellow quilters, and 8 hours in a wonderful fabric store! Of course, I did not come home without some bargains. We were allowed to browse in between parts of the day and "run a tab" to be settled up at the end of the day. I kept finding things and adding it to my tab, and when the salesclerk added it up, it came to $6234.65! Wow, did I have a few gold coins in that one bag or an order for a long arm machine that I didn't remember? When my heart started functioning again after that shock, she quickly redid it, she forgot to put a decimal point in, and charged me $5999.00 instead of $59.99 for an item. This makes somewhat of a difference! I was NOT GOOD on my supposed fabric diet( what diet?), i got some great bargains! But did not bring home another longarm machine!

    I know what you mean Jean. I went to my shop Friday and was charged over $3000. She rang up 1/2 yard of fabric for $3000. I corrected that quickly after my mini stroke lol.

    Sounds like you had an absolutely fabulous Saturday. Day in the shop, leisurely shopping - relaxing. the look on your face at the first tally - priceless! LOL. Glad you found some bargains. That is allowed on a fabric diet I think.

    Sounds like a great day. I would have yelled for them to call 911 after hearing that total though. Glad they got it fixed quickly.
    Congrats on all your bargains.

    Sounds like you had a fabulous day! I felt the cringe of shock creeping up as I read your story. So glad your day came to a pleasant end.

    So glad you had a wonderful day. I think I would have passed out when the clerk told me my total. Have had that happen before. Makes you wake up for darn sure. lol

    A quilt is something you make to keep someone you love...WARM.....
