    New Fabric Moratorium

    Hi All: Someone presented the idea of a moratorium against new fabric buying this year. How is everyone holding out? It's only January 19th and I'm losing my resistance. Have a cart just ready to check out at Connecting Threads but have vowed to at least wait until February 1st. I can think of a gazillion perfectly good reasons to add to my ridiculously large stash I'll never live long enough to use up. Fabric-holoics of the Board unit!

    Ahem: on the other hand, one never knows how high cotton will go, does one? So the valid arguement might be instead that, "I need to buy while the prices are low"...what 'cha think?? JK, tongue in cheek!

    I really, really meant to behave, but I just couldn't pass up this awesome bargain. I just placed my third order (this time for approx 24 yards) with Cuddle-Bugs. My first two orders yielded some wonderful, quality fabrics. Cuddle-bugs is going out of business and selling their cotton fabrics for .... an amazing $2.00 per yard. Everything I received is top quality, name brands with a lovely, almost silky hand.

    So toss caution to the wind as you will never find this price again.

    Actually, I've done far better than I thought I would. I haven't bought any new fabric, but I bought 2 books at our guild "auction" for $1.00 I thought that was all right.

    I hope to use a lot of my stash this year but it's hard to resist a sale.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I usually have no trouble resisting fabric as I have a large (DH says enormous) stash and fabric at our LQS here in Ontario Canada is $14.95 a metre (better than some others at $16.95 or $17.95). I run into trouble when I find a really good sale like the one at a Mennonite shop that had five shelves of fabric on for $2.99 a metre which is unheard of any place else. It was mostly florals which they say are not moving well but there were a couple of Orientals that were gorgeous. I couldn't resist and bought $30 worth.
