    Darn, and I didn't get any before the price increase! Fabric Depot in Portland frequently has had their batiks at $5.50/yard. That's about the best I've seen for the leading manufacturers.

    I thought CT batiks were always $6.96 a yard.? Their designer cotton fabric is $5.96 and the basic fabric is $4.96. Their clearance fabric is $2.98 a yard. I buy yards of the clearance fabrics for backings.
