*37 spools of thread, about 4500 yards total, cost $13.50 at St. Vincent de Paul thrift store. I made one trip on Friday and another on Saturday.... I did better on Saturday because I figured out their pricing guidelines -- not by how much was on the spool but by the size and material of the spool (e.g. large wood spools cost more than small plastic spools).
Now there should be little holding me back from sewing a whole host of finger puppets and soft toys. Yay!
