    Their fabrics are beautiful...but out of principle I probably won't shop there. Can't STAND it when stores "hide" the fact that prices are per half yard, and not per yard.

    yep...her prices are NOT that great...just like every other high end quilt shop only she hides the fact that the prices are per 1/2 yard...I don't shop Hancock's of Paducah for that very reason!

    I agree about the 1/2 yard pricing.. . Several larger online shops do the same thing and I absolutely refuse to buy from them because of it!!!

    Sorry, but that store is too expensive for my budget. They should also state clearly on their home page that the prices are for only half-yard cuts.

    At least Hancock's says it right up front that it is the half yard price.

    These fabric patterns will be very appealing to young moms for their home dec, baby quilts, clothing, diaper bags, and bedding accessories. It's a good resource for grandmas interested in meeting their desires for "modern" fabrics. $9 and $10 per yard is right on the money these days, unfortunately. and better than many other sources.

    I agree with the "hidden" prices (by 1/2 yard)....looks like a great deal till you look closer. FQ prices are similar to any other shop.

    I shop at fabric.com a lot and see most of these fabrics there are a reduced price.

    I'll bookmark it only if I can't find a specific fabric anywhere else...then might buy it there.

    Hmmmm...... prices didn't seem very reasonable to me, especially for 1/2 yard cuts. Geez!!! I thought the prices were for a full yard until I looked more closely - very sneaky!!!

    Looks like the majority of their fabric is Amy Butler. I don't own a piece of Amy Butler designed fabric. And I guarentee I won't be buying any in the next years to come. I don't like large obnoxious prints that look like they came from the 60's and 70's. And I agree, if it's by the half yard, it should be stated on the home page in big print. You shouldn't find it out after looking at the site for 10 minutes.
