    And when they run out they are going to have to buy the higher priced items. May not be $12/yd, but I'll just bet you won't be seeing any at $2.00.

    I have seen fabric at Hobby Lobby for $10.99 a yard, but it was collegiate fabric. Their Northcott cotton has gone up to $9.99 a yard, but is always 30% off and you can use a 40% coupon in lieu of the 30%. Still a bargain to me.

    Keep in mind that it is not just the price of the fabric that the stores have to contend with, but the rent goes up every year whether the store makes money or not, most employees expect raises, electric is up because of this awful heat. It amazes me that as many shops are able to stay in business as do.

    I noticed in our quilt stores the past couple of weeks the new fabric, not batik, is $10.50 a yard.

    Hmmm, if your LQS is selling for $7.99 it makes you wonder why they can keep their prices low while the others are selling so much higher.

    I only shop sales. Can't afford to pay regular prices. I buy a lot from Connecting Threads and Fabric.com. They have some pretty good prices and their sales are great. I also use cloth from clothes. I shop church rummage sales, thrift shops and always tell all my friends to let me check anything they plan to give or throw away. Just call me Tightwad...LOL

    Living in United Kingdom our good fabrics are about 12 a meter when you add in the exchange rate that is much more than your prices.

    I have started looking in Charity Shops for good used cotton clothes. I simply cannot afford new fabrics at all anymore.
