    I know the people of Japan have much more important things to think about and do , but has anyone heard if the problems in Japan will affect the production of fabric? Just a thought, last night was ironing and noticed my fabric said made in Japan.

    I haven't heard anything about that. If the name of the company was on the salvage, google it and see where it's located or if there is any information. All I've heard about is automobiles and paints being affected.

    My gosh, and we seem to think everything electronic is made in China now. It is going to be a while before we realize the full impact of this.

    As a precaution, the company I work for (a major Pharma) is stopping purchases from any vendors within 30 KM from the damaged plants.

    Seems like everything will be affected, cars, car parts, cameras, etc., and now fabric. I would not purchase food, beauty products, pharmaceuticals, or fabric from Japan. We need to be cautious. It's all very sad and unfortunate, and another major quake/aftershock is predicted to occur in the near future.

    Have to agree and any seafood coming from the area from Japan to Alaska to Hawaii and California. How do you know though. It is sad. I feel so sorry for those poor people.
