Many have commented about the recent price increases in cotton fabrics. We all feel the "pinch" when at the fabric shops. I went today to a charity sale, and found a table with remnants in their original fabric store bands, dated from Nov. of 1993. (Someone was stash building!)
I purchased 6 remnants, five of LQS quality 100% cotton Christmas fabric, and one of a corduroy print, also cotton.
The prices on the 1993 labels were as follows:
#1 is 1/2yd. 44" wide, $5.98/yd.
#2 is 1 1/6 yd. 45" wide, $6.98/yd.
#3 is 5/6 yd. 45" wide, $5.98/yd.
#4 is 7/8 yd. 45" wide, $6.98/yd.
#5 is 3/4 yd. 44" wide, $5.98/yd.
#6 (corduroy) is 1 1/8 yd. 44" wide, $13.98/yd.
I would be interested to know the adjustment rate for today's dollar, to compare what these prices would be now.
Guessing most of these fabrics would be $9-$11 per yd. and the corduroy would be $17-$20 per yd.
PS I paid $3.50 for the entire group! Score!!
