    My LQS told me today to expect two more increases in prices.

    One in June and December. :(

    Well good thing I'm going to Paducah in April, I'll stock up there at the show, at Hancocks, etc. Hopfully I'll have enough stash that I won't NEED to buy more for a long time.

    Note I said "NEED" and not "be tempted to". Two entirely different things :)

    I'm a little confused about all this. I have seen some very good prices online for nice fabric.
    I just returned from Hawaii and they had wonderful stuff for no more than 4.50 a yard.
    But I haven't been in my LQS lately.

    Owner of LQS near me told me Saturday that she was told by suppliers that cotton should rise 120% by Dec. That's not a typo -120%.

    It's getting so bad that people will not be able to enjoy their hobbies.

    I'm okay on fabric, but I'm now working on stocking up on batting and tread. Also stocking up on t-shirts & socks for DH. Those big & tall ones are getting harder to find. :)
