    very true, and with the cost of fabric going up it's so depressing.

    We have a lot o choose from, but we can see the inventory decreasing more every day. New collections are not being purchased for their shelves anymore. They are becoming more selective.

    Our LQS closed in May. Wal Mart has some fabric, Hobby Lobby and Hancocks about a 40 min drive, Mary Jo's is an hour for me. The only LQS that is close is NOT a friendly store so don't go there! You feel like you are intruding when you walk in the door.

    Our LQS closed a couple of weeks ago, but I couldn't afford their prices. There is another store that carries good quilting material real close to the LQS and their prices, I have been told, are at least 25% less. I don't see why a LQS can't lower their prices some - the fabric is SMP - suggested manufacturers' price, not a definite. This would help those of us on a fixed income or incomes that have been lowered be able to purchase.

    WOW, i guess i should be grateful for our LQS. yes prices have gone up but for that special project its worth it. i almost always find what i need. i believe their newsletter is on line. take a look and see the classes etc that they offer. friendly people working there keep everyone coming back too. quilting sisters is the shop name.

    My LQS, Joannes, Hobby Lobby, Micheals and a few Fabric outlets are ALL 30+ miles from my house.. So I make the trip count with other errands I have to run... I hate it.. but I live out in the country so its not like they can open a LQS right around the corner here.. Where would the cows go then??
