speaking of weight...

how much does fabric weigh? in this box they packaged ten bolts. each bolt is approximately fiveteen yards.

according to the shipping label the box weighs 64 pounds. if my calculations are correct, that is a bit over 1/3 pound per yard. so far sarah and i have selected 564 bolts on order. that will be over 2500 pounds of fabric that our faithful ups driver, Pete, will have to lug up to the second floor until the shop opens. then our supervisor of shipping and receiving will have to carry it all back downstairs. at least we have a good area for storage in the same building. thank you honey.
