Great donation to the cause.Thanks Old Trail Fabrics

So I went to a local store here called Old Trail fabric today and told them about our write it out cause and they donated 50 27x27 fabric squares! That is an over $65 dollar value
This is so wonderful and generous of them to do so. Thanks Gary ( the manager)and Carol for helping count them out today.
So be sure to check them out online
I love this store as they Know I am always stopping buy to see what new samples and fabrics and great bargains they have. Some of this wonderful fabric  will be used to mail to the write it out project and some to start our local version of this project.
