    on some web site today I read that the shelf life of fabric is only 6-12 months. Does anyone know anything about this? Does that mean that the clock starts ticking when it is in the shop?.................I must really be in trouble........... :shock:

    Maybe it's the "shelf life" for the designer fabric at that moment?

    Shelf life in a LQS ends when a piece of fabric is sold. But shelf life never expires once it gets home!

    As long as fabric is clean and dry it should be good. I have fabric that my mother had years ago and it is still very strong and I will continue to use it.

    Oh, my goodness. Does that mean I am in danger of my clothes falling apart while I'm wearing them. I hope not!
