Do you sometimes feel like the powers that be just invent excuses to raise prices on everything? I came across this article on the TV station’s web page from back home. Sounds like the next thing we know, cotton fabric, cotton thread, cotton batting . . the things we need and love, will all be going up in price.
Maybe we’d all better slow down and make our stashes last as long as we can.

IMHO, that’s kinda why I’m not shopping so much any more. At over $9.00/yd, it’s just too much ‘over the top’ for me. So, I AM using my stash. 😎

For anyone living in USA who thinks $9 is a lot, try $20 – 25! Here in Australia I buy carefully, (well, sometimes) but I still manage a considerable stash!
Vicki W says
Must start buying!

I’m with Vicky……we better buy now while the price is lower.
There is absolutely no way I could run out of fabric in my lifetime….I just might have to get more creative about using what I have as I go along.
With prices rising – we pay US$ 25-30 a yard now – more reason to bust the stash indeed!
I can not possibly run out of fabric for a long long time.
My stash will probably outlive the financial crisis anyway – hehehe
That’s a bummer. We saw a bunch of unpicked cotton fields in North Carolina too! I should have snagged some.
