February 5th, 2018 - Buyer Beware

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I bought a couple of bolts of flannel at Joann fabrics. I always measure my fabric before I wash it to check for shrinkage. The bolts are marked as 8 yards. Never assume that there are 8 yards on the bolt. The last one I measured was short a few inches. After washing it, it’s going to be short more than a few. Anyway, moral of the story is, always have the bolts measured. Don’t ever assume the label is correct. I was thinking of emailing Joanns but this isn’t worth it. Next time I buy a bolt, I will be getting it measured.
