Marvelous Marden's

Saturday was a planned stash-enhancing experience.

Sue, below, from The Sunshine Club on Tuesdays at the Alton, New Hampshire Senior Center, volunteered to drive me to Marden's department store in Sanford, Maine.

The store is part of a small independent chain that sells everything and it is all deeply discounted.

They are only in Maine, and not every store has a fabric department like this one does. There are aisles of bolts arranged by colors in a veritable rainbow.

The 100% cotton quilting fabrics are mostly quilt shop quality and priced at $4.49 or $4.99 per yard.

Above is the gal who cut my selections and she then very nicely took my picture of me holding my new loot.

I picked out several creamy neutrals and a tan that were all in half yard increments, and a yard each of a Robyn Pandolf blue floral and a red cretonne by Maywood Studios.

My tab was under $35, wow! And that even included some new dog toys for Miss Emma Lynne!

Happy quilting! (Or chewing, as the case may be.)
