I've just been reading about someone picking up some fabrics for $3 a yard.
I nearly fell off my chair! We can only dream of those sorts of prices here.
Good quality quilting fabric costs anywhere between $24 - $28 a metre (which is only a fraction longer than a yard).
We have a bargain / bulk fabric store, but the material is generally of lesser quality, and often not worth it. Every now and then there is good quality fabric at a bargain price, but they're few and far between.
I have bought online, and off ebay, but once the exchange rate and postage is added in, it's only slightly cheaper.
