    Do you know why the price of cotton fabric is increasing? One big reason is that there was a flood in Pakistan that ruined their cotton crop last year. They have been a major producer of high quality cottons. As a result, the other producers are getting a higher price for their cottons. If you've noticed, the new shipments of fabrics in the stores are a dollar or more higher in price. Another good reason to use fabric from your stash.

    Hi and welcome. I too am working on my stash and getting a "fabric" fix from some of the others on this board that are reducing their "inventory".
