I went thrift shopping again yesterday and found these two quilting books. The one by Paula Nadelstern is quite old but I am a fan of hers so I bought it anyway.
The pre-wound bobbins will, hopefully, fit in my Pfaff that is on the quilting frame. Since they cost almost $9 for fewer than that at the shop I thought it was worth buying all 8 bags of them. If they don't fit, they'll be back there next week. I compared them with the ones I have when I got home and they seem exactly the same. They all have brown or beige thread which is a nice neutral color for quilting scrap quilts.
I also stopped in at Canadian Tire and bought some bookshelves for my fabric. I couldn't handle digging around in plastic boxes any more. I'll post a photo when they are looking a bit more organized. I still have lots of boxes full of scraps but at least the yardage will be visible.
