Peachrose and I went on a shop hop in NW Ohio. We both noticed that the price of fabrics in the 4 shops did not seem any higher than earlier this year. Most fabric was $8-9/yd with some as low as $5.00. There was only a few bolts marked $11/yd. A shop owner did say that she noticed that the price of fabric has gone up but we did not see it in the stores that we went to. Maybe all the worry was for nothing! Let's hope so. Also A flyer I got in the mail advertised that fabric is back in Walmart. Also it looked like they are bring back more crafts. Good news for us!!!!!!!
