    Is there a month of the year, or season, when you do NOT buy as much fabric as other times?

    Just wonderin'...

    During the winter when the heating bills are the highest, I rarely buy anything.

    Right now because I am on a tight budget. It is not looking like that season is changing anytime soon.

    I was going to say I'm pretty satisfied with what I already have.... then realized I'm trading some patterns for fabric!!!!!! That has kept me out of the stores for the past month or so.. other than that I don't think there's a particular time when I buy less....

    I buy the least in January and Feb. I am usually coming down from the fall and Christmas stuff I have sewn... and I need a bit of a break... plus I have all the scraps from the Frenzy of it all.
    I try to work on the "put aside "project that I may have purchased fabric but just did not get to during the "frenzy time".
    The January sales may occasionally break my hibernation or if I just need to have a nice bright fabric in my collection to pick up the dark days.
    It seems even the LQS are not getting to much in during Jan.. maybe ... and inventory issue?!!
