The owner of our local quilt shop says that the price of our quilting cottons is soon to go up. Good news is that I am well supplied and can make it without having to purchase more. :) :) :)
Started out as a quilter and now consider myself a collector of fine fabrics. Anyone else like that?

I am the "Curator of a Textile Collection" myself.
I think there are a lot of us that like to collect fine fabrics. (and pet them now and again)

Cotton prices were very good this year from what I hear, Glad for those farmers that sometimes have bad years!!

That's a nice way to put that all our prices are going up also :) No worries from here yet, have a way to go to put a dent in these pretties :) just have to convince my auto that fab store is gone.... coming soon a Hobby Lobby.
OMG may be in trouble :)

Is there such a thing as a fabroligist ??

My DH says my quilts 'cost $1,000.00 each' judging from the amount of fabric I buy. I'mm still building my stash..
