Which fabrics to buy?


I must say some of the hardest decisions I make is which fabrics to buy. What I like is often very different then what will sell. I find picking out fabrics so much easier when I have my daughters with me. Yesterday I went to a local quilting shop by myself, mainly looking for clip hooks. But they were having a 25% off sale- oh no!!! Well, I actually was very good and only bought 4 new fabrics. I think they all will be great but boy, do I have a hard time !!! I also don't buy large quanities because I maybe so wrong about what people will like. I tend to see how it goes. I guess that might be good since I try to create OOAK things. Now what to make is my next decision for today.

Good idea to get the youth input :) Especially since from your last post, sounds like they might be part of your demographic!

Ahhh, I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to enjoy shopping like that with me. At the moment she just enjoys grabbing anything she can, whatever is closest!
I love that fabric and I love the idea of ooak, most of what I do is ooak too.

I find that I can restrain myself better when I have someone shopping with me :) Fabrics + beads are the hardest to NOT splurge on!

Thank you for visiting my blog :)
