    I found this link while doing the fabshophop and it explains why the cost is going up and up and up. Anyway, it's interesting to read.

    Thanks for sharing. What these companies don't get is once something goes up. It rarely ever goes back down. i.e. gas, groceries, etc. The only bargain right now is housing and unfortunately you cannot get loans.

    A very interesting article. Yes, we will be paying higher prices for fabric, for the unforseeable future, and yes, it will never come back down to where it is now, but, nothing ever does. That being said, I really like what "In the Beginnings Fabrics" had to say about customer service.
    " Customer service is truly what will keep quilting healthy and alive during these challenging economic times." That and wonderful places like this quilt forum.
