Karen, our sales woman, was wonderful and I was able to add quite a few bits and pieces to my fabric stash. I tried to go for things that were foreign or that I'd never seen before.
Remnants - Gala has a large remnant area. I picked these up:
Very light aqua stretch cotton - 1.9 metres. Poly organza with embrodiery - 1.8 metres.
Silk with red flower print 10 x 40 perfect for a scarf. Ivory brocade with pink and lime stripes sized 8 x 42 - a yoke perhaps?
Four yards of cotton sateen - a great summer dress or perhaps a robe? Two yards of Japanese cotton - part of a great top or jacket?
Shangrala by Timeless Treasures(??) which is available here, but I've never been able to find it. Love the peacocks.
Three yards of a corded cotton from Japan. Actually a light pink and a dark pink, not purple as it appears here.
I also picked up two baggies full of embrodiered, sequined and beaded laces in various colors for crazy quilting! Can't wait to dig in here.
