The three knit/jersey type fabrics I purchased last weekend were not only a ton cuter than the ones I'd been buying at the chain stores, but they were 1.) made in the USA and 2.) CHEAP!!! Like, $4.00/yard.
I think the main thing that makes me forget about dear old Needle Nook is that they're on the other side of town. But I'd like to make a point to go there more often.
