    I was in Arizona for ten days and just had to go to a fabric shop. I found a quilt store not so far from me and went in. The shop was lovely with beautiful quilts on display, machines to try, patterns and books...and all the things to get you to buy their fabric. So I had to look at some fabric which had caught my eye and to my surprise...it was $12.95 per yard. OMG...when did the prices go up...I thought fabric at quilt stops go for around $9.95!! I was in shock!! Are all quilt shops sooo expensive? :cry: :cry: :cry:

    These prices encourage a person to NOT want to de-stash.
