Today was all about deals

I was heading out this morning to my local sewing shop as they were having an open house and had everything on sale as well as discounts on classes.  I had already signed up for a bed runner quilt class so I wanted to take advantage of the discounts.  Before I left I printed off some coupons for Michaels and decided to pop in to see if they sold rulers.  I have been wanting to get a ruler but they sell for $30 plus here.   I was super happy when I saw Michaels had them and I had a 50% off coupon so I picked up the ruler and a  can of basting spray for less than $30 (the cashier applied the discount to both items, yay!)Sept 1 (2)

 

I got to the sewing store and it was pretty busy.  This store does not have a huge selection of fabrics but everything they did have was on sale.  I got all of these fabrics for $3/m, score! I don’t even have any projects planned for them but I liked them and the price was right.Sept 1 (4)

 

Then I had to pick out the fabric for my quilt.  The bed topper is for my king size bed and the class is making a queen size so I had to get extra fabrics.  I needed to pick 4 fabrics.  I guess it is good that the store didn’t have a huge selection as I find it so difficult to pick out fabrics for myself.   The main is the white, the black flowery one (large) is inserts on the front with the purple  for sashing and the small flowery black one is for the back.  Probably hard to picture but I will be posting about it soon as the class starts Sept 13.  These fabrics weren’t as good a deal as $3/m but they were still 25% off Smile  I left the store $200 later (including costs of the class).  Well worth it!Sept 1
