We have had some unseasonably wet weather here in Ohio. Wet to the point of flooding in many areas.
I received a guild email last week that the local quilt shop had somehow gotten water damage.
The water backed up through a drain under their carpet. Needless to say ALL the fabric that was sitting on the floor (89 bolts) was water damaged and soaked.
After the insurance settled the owner didn't know what to do with all the fabric so she offered it up for $2 a yard. By the time I got there, there was only 20 bolts left.
It went fast.
I did get some good Lakehouse for backings.
I think 19 yards for $38 is totally worth it!
It was wet...that's it. I washed it, dried it and am happy as a lark.
Now about that blessing in disguise business....well just 2 weeks ago I was out at our quilt shop and she was saying how she needs to get all the fabric off the floor!
She's building a new shop and moving by August this year.
So now there is no more fabric on the floor.
She's reduced her inventory by 89 bolts and broke even on the money side.
Kind of a blessing in disguise.
