One wonderful thing did come out of that party though. A fellow grandmother blogger, Nana Kelly at What's Nana Making, introduced me to a great fabric resource! The website is called Connecting Threads and I have fallen so in love with it that I have applied to be in their affiliate program. (I am not an affiliate yet, but Nana Kelly is, so that is her link to the site!)
Connecting Threads is a site made for quilters, but of course you can use their fabrics for whatever projects you would like. Their prices are wonderful. If you are like me, I always head straight to the clearance section to shop first. Did you see those fabric samples in the collage above? They are all from the 30 PAGES of clearance fabric that are on Connecting Threads. The prices start at $ 2.79 per yard! Then, when you go to the regular fabric page, there are about 50 something collections of fabric. That means, in each collection there are groupings of fabric that coordinate with one another. This makes sense when you are selling to quilters and crafters. The regular prices start at a reasonable $4.19 per yard. All of the fabric I have looked at is 100% cotton and 44 inches wide. They also have flannel and Luxe fabrics. When you first sign onto the page, you get a 15% discount off of your first order!
