Grand Forks Treasures


Here are the treasures I got at Jo-Ann Fabrics in Grand Forks. The two large flower prints are extra wide for backing. The fat quarters were 79cents each. They were pretty picked over but I basically took one of each that was left. The dark at the top is more yardage of some fabric I already have and love.
I also got a great deal on a ceramic lined non-stick frying pan but neglected to take a picture of it. It was a fun day and the people at both border crossings couldn't have been nicer. We'll have to do that again sometime soon.

Good for you. My husband and I will be going down to GF Dec. 28th, and I plan on dropping by Jo-Anne's.

I recently bought that blue with pink flowers FQ. It struck me as an interesting design and colorway. Any plans for yours?

Wow Joyce,
What extrordinary prices for fat quarters- I did get some recently for a dollar a piece on line from a Canadian shop. They have a sale on every Friday the 13th. You don't get to choose the fabrics - there were some nice ones and others were pretty ordinary ones but kind of a fun way to add to the stash.
I wish that I was a little closer to the American border- Edmonton is a long way north from the border - about 7 hours drive.

Have fun creating with your new fabrics.
Warmest regards,
Anna

OMG 79 cents? And I thought $1.49 was good at JoAnn's when we visited California. Way to go with the FQs.
