Saturday afternoon I drove out to Burkholder's Fabric in search of fabrics to complete my 3 most recent projects. I know I have written about this shop before but yesterday I took photos just to give you an idea. Keep in mind that I only shot about 1/3 of the shelves. I am not exaggerating. I will also tell you that EVERY shelf is jammed with bolts. So jammed that 2 weeks ago when I went with my sister looking for batiks, I tried to pull out a bolt and heard something "pop" in my wrist. I sprained my wrist pulling fabrics! (I still cannot bear weight on it - getting old is a pain!) Anyway, be prepared because this post is photo intensive!

Right now Burkholder's is offering 2 coupons and you must have the coupon for the sale. One is for a 25% discount on everything in the store and the coupon is good until Sept. 11. There is also a coupon for 30% that is effective only on Sept. 6 & 7. I will be happy to forward you a copy of the coupons if you are interested. (Without a coupon if you are a guild member or member of a sewing circle, you get an everyday discount of 15%.) Fabric prices without coupons are fairly typical for Lancaster County - most new lines are between $7.69 & $7.99. For those of you that like on-line shopping there is also a 25% off sale on line at their new website. There are frequent specials for on-line orders. You are probably wondering if they are having the sales to reduce inventory...and they are but only because there is more fabric on order! No one has compensated me for writing this post. I just love this shop so much I can't stand it!
