    Was at JoAnn's today and found great sale prices. Also found quilting fabric priced at $9.99. Some friends from Texas told me last summer that because of the drought the cotton crop was lost and prices would increase. Will you pay this or more?

    Nope Not me.. My Budget is so small it can hardly handle what I do get.. Here a piece there a piece... I used to buy almost everything at Joanns with a coupon.. But I ordered from Connecting Threads the other day .... And I Love their fabric... I think I will mostly be an online shopper now.

    Yep, I was frustrated as well with the prices. I have been doing this for a while, and have a stash--but for new quilters-we will lose much!

    the one LQS by me starts her prices at 12-15 a yard for regular cotton. Batiks are over $18 a yard, and she doesn't cut in less than 1 yard increments on Batik.

    I'd gladly pay 9.99 in that LQS, but mainly I shop online.

    No I won't pay those prices mentioned above. There are quilt shops out there selling less expensive fabric that works just fine for me. It doesn't have to have a name brand on it for it to work in my quilts. Yes it is better quality but they are pricing themselves right out of the quilters market. I won't pay more than $9.99 a yd & VERY seldom will I do that, even at JoAnn's. I've got enough fabric I can sit & ride this one out. IF I do pay $9.99 a yard, it won't be at JoAnn's tho, I'd rather pay that from a qult shop where the quality is there. JoAnn's does not offter the quality :thumbup: Our JoAnn's has had $9.99 fabric for a long time now & I pick it up & look at it & put it right back. So this is nothing new here in Southern IL.

    If I don't buy from fabric from WalMart I purchase most of my fabric online. The LQS is just to out of my price range when it comes to the quilts I make. I try to hit the sales and buy cheaper fabric.

    Seems like Joann's has taken their usual cottons, slapped the term Quilters whatever on them and bumped the prices up at least 40%. The thing is, the fabric doesn't look any better or feel any better than their lower priced cottons as a rule, or at least in my neck of the woods. If I'm going to spend upwards of $9.00 would rather give my hard-earned $$ to a quilt shop.
