    I went to JoAnn's today. I found the perfect fabrics for a quilt for my niece. She wants bright pink and bright green.

    Their fabric prices went up!!! I can not believe how much. I am going to LQS Monday to see the price differences.

    Usually 3.99-5.99/yd is now up to 7.99/yd.

    Yes, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that the prices are going up about .50 every time I go in.

    I was talking to a new friend who works in a shop. She says it's not the fabric itself that's making the big difference in the price increases but the higher shipping costs to get the fabrics into the shop. Of course, we live way up here in New England and are not close to any major ports.

    I read somewhere recently that the price of cotton (not fabric - just grown cotton) has gone up considerably -- thus the tremendous increase in fabric prices.
