  1. My first time here, I did purchase a bit of fabric, which were neatly rolled into bundles with an elastic around it.. When I get home, one of the fabrics was a tube sweatshirt style, when I unrolled it, it had a huge piece cut out, which is not good.. Now what to do with it?
    Secondly, another piece of fabric was so stinky with mold, still trying to get the smell out, not sure that’s possible.
    Thirdly… Another piece of fabric folded and rolled up, had a couple of little cuts in the centre which you could not see until it was opened up.
    Lastly… The black and white threads I picked up was not included when I got home.. Can’t tell if I paid for it or not.
    I will definitely have to check out the fabrics more closely on the future, if I’m going to purchase.
