    I really love Kaffe's shot cotton in "sludge" and it's out of print... I found some online at $9.50 a yard and went to buy 5 yards... I filled out all the information and then the total showed $10.95 in shipping I changed my mind.. so I had to tell someone... thanks for listening and I promise to post something more interesting next time :-)

    Think how much more fabric you can buy at the store now with what you saved on shipping!

    Good job. Shipping costs can add a lot to the per yard price. I refuse to pay ridiculous shipping charges. Those people could have shipped your package USPS very inexpensively, but were too lazy to give you good cart options. Their loss.

    High shipping costs have saved me a lot of money over the years.

    Good for you. I always look for fair shipping costs too.

    High shipping stops me so often. Thank goodness....When it is shipped to Canada, we usually have to pay $7-$9 extra. I know we have to pay some shipping, but I don't like paying on a $$$ amount, when the weight is next to nothing, ie: a pattern.
