Hold onto your hats, gals ... fabric for $14.99 and $15.95 a yard! What else will surprise us this year?!?
"Wishing you sunshine and blessings"
I guess I'll be working on those WIP that can use fabrics I have stashed, and if I start something new, it'd better be recycled fabrics.
I hope those were some really special fabrics!
“May God give you...For every storm a rainbow, for every tear a smile, for every care a promise and a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share, for every sigh a sweet song and an answer for each prayer.”
Was this regular cotton prints or batik?
I've been seeing a lot of $10.79 & $11.49 prices at LQS's for new cottons. Thank goodness for sales & STASH.
WOW!!! Where did you find that sale???!!! Our fabric here in Canada...the new fabric...is on average $20.00/meter. Sure that is 3 or 4 inch more...but...
So enjoy ladies it could be and will be worse....not for a long time I hope.
If life hands you scraps make quilts
I will not be paying that much for any quilts I make for charity. That is just way too much for fabric. I really would be afraid to pay that much for a family quilt or one for myself.
Thank goodness for my stash/ I new I was doing the right thing by buying more than I could possibly use in this lifetime. I am glad I live close to the ragman.
A friend of my niece's asked me to make her some curtains for her house. I warned her the cost of the fabric alone was going to surprise her and she should consider ready made curtains. She didn't believe me until she went into the fabric store - she walked right out and found perfect ready made curtains. I won't be paying $15-16 a yard for quilting fabric - good thing I have a large stash!
LisaTX and I saw $13.95/yard fabric about 2 years ago. It wasn't a batik nor especially pretty (at least to us). I knew then I was going to be using a lot of stash. Thankfully there is enough there to make me happy for a long time. Of course, there are always new ones.........
I have also seen batiks at Wally World for $8-9 per yard. Not a huge selection, but if you're looking for inexpensive, try it. I know some of the stores don't have fabric any more or have it back yet, but some do. One of ours never lost its fabric department. Go figure, with 20 quilt shops in the Houston area while those of you out yonder don't have any.This message has been edited. Last edited by: needlecrazy,

These were cotton prints for $14.99 and some new batiks for $15.95. Our LQS new fabrics are between $12 - $14/yd. with jelly rolls and layer cakes $43 - $45. I'm thinking my small stash is going to have to suffice till there are some really good sales. Suppose this means that thread and batting will also increase.

That totally exceeds my "conscious budget"not gonnna' happen... I adore estate sales and yard sales...was thinking of cutting back on them...guess I'll continue hoarding stash from them....
All the more reason to BUY NOW !
Summers are just this side of hell, but you don't have to shovel sunshine...

Welcome to my world ladies, and that's cheap for fabric here in OZ...I'm lucky to find something for 9.95 a meter, it rangrs from 21.00-28.00+ a meter, I shop online mainly and love Whittles fabric and Connecting Threads batiks...I love their prices even more!
" Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile.. "
I agree with Yikes! but....I remember when prices jumped to $9 - $10 per yard and everyone said - Who me? I'll never pay that!
When you see that one fabric that you just gotta have...is price a consideration?
I guess we'll all be sharpening up our math skills. If we have to pay that much we'd better figure to the inch exactly how much we need.
I love my stash!
