I was shopping at Walmart this week and while waiting for my hubby I browsed the fabric/craft section. They had even more than the last time I was there. Anyway I happened to to get to chatting with a nice lady who ran the department. she said sales have been increasing - especially fabric; wonder why, people can't afford to buy new clothes, at the current increased prices. . Also she said she know several ladies who are supporting them selves by selling at craft shows. As she said, " Those who can't must buy". Sadly she also said she could do more but the bosses won't listen to her.
So lets help - for those of us lucky enough to be able to buy- we need to support those who are selling. And we need to partronize those establishments that are responsive to our needs and wants...In short. I'm going to buy some more fabric this fall, and de-stash that stash I don't really want any more by giving it away or trading! Out with the old stash and in with the new!
