View Full Version : Question about ribbon...

I forget this all the time...how many feet are in a yard? I was thinking that 3 feet were in 1 yard, so that 18 inches or 1.5 feet were in 1/2 yard. Can someone tell me if I am right or wrong? Thanks so much.

Yes! You are correct: 36 inches in a yard. 3 feet in a yard. 18 inches in a half yard. 12 inches in a foot.

I like buying ribbon and fabric in Canada, though because it is sold by the metre (usually) which gives you a bit more.:)

You know, I forget this everytime I go to buy ribbon! Maybe I should write it somewhere....:)

The strangest thing....

I was shopping today and ran across tags and ribbon for sale at Old Navy. I couldn't believe my eyes....anyway they are selling pretty ribbon there for $2 and $3 for 3 yards.. it looked really nice. Their tags are $2...and undecorated, utilitarian...but that ribbon looked tempting. :)
