    How far are you from Glendale? There is a great quilt shop there and one in Mesa (which is the one I shop at). They are owned by the Mulqueens.
    They are having a Christmas in July sale Thurs-Fri-Sat July 22, 23, 24th. Fabric is $4.50 per yard (retail $8.95) and really great sales on thread, quilting supplies and everything. I have gone the past 2 years and great bargains.I also bought my Brother Duetta embroidery mach and my Brother Inovvis-40. Their website is www.sewshop.com

    I just got an e-mail from one of my fabric suppliers and they are going to raise their prices by at least $1 per yard the first of August. So it is going up!

    I own a little t-shirt shop and my suppliers told me that fabric prices around the world are going up 4% to 6% so the price of my shirts etc will go up too. So I guess it is not a ploy to those that are suppling fabric only.

    The manufacturers of the cloth itself are the ones raising the prices first, and they are all overseas. Which means that it's not just the prices the manufacturers set, but also the exchange rates on the dollar. Plus some fluctuation based on the price of oil, I would think, 'cause it requires fuel to power the ocean freighter that brings the fabric to our shores. The initial increase just creeps upwards along the supply chain. In the end, all the retail stores have to raise their prices, just to continue to cover the increases that were passed along to them. You know, so they can continue to pay their rent and employees and taxes. Ummm... the taxes, for sure, never do go down!
