The only Black Friday shopping I did was to head to Joann’s yesterday to take advantage of 60% off blades for my rotary cutter and to pick up a couple of quilting notions. The bonus of getting there before noon was to save an additional 25%. I spied some fabric that would’ve been great for my needlecase swap with the AMQG, but I didn’t have 2 hours to stand in the cutting line. Besides, my co-pilot was out in the car and eager to get to the dog park. So, I essentially got my rotary cutter blades at 85% off the regular retail. Works for me.
Today is Small Business Saturday. I will be out supporting at least two of my local small businesses – an independent bookstore in Woodstock and an established quilt shop in the same general vicinity. (The Elna likes Mettler Silk Finish Cotton Thread, so I’m going to get a couple of spools while I’m at it.)
Not sure if my sidekick is riding along today. I could see if he’s allowed in the bookstore. After all, he is a READing dog.
