When you buy a gift card, it's usually for someone else. OURS, however, could be used by that someone else you gave it to, OR you could spend it yourself, bits at a time! That way YOU would gain the free yard of our best fabric every month for 1 year. ON the other hand, you could give the Gift Card to someone and YOU get the fabric, OR you could have that free yard of fabric sent to the person you've bought the Gift Card for. Either way, it's a GRAND DEAL!
