I read today that cotton prices have fallen dramatically. It was $.95 a pound before it began climbing, went as high as $2.15 and has now fallen back to $1.25.

The article said that the price of cotton fabric is dropping. Good news for us!! :thumbup:

It will be a couple of years before we see the effects of the price drop.

That is great for us but what about that farmer that grew the cotton and he has a family to feed and take care of also. Do not get me wrong am glad prices are dropping it is just a two edge sword. I am a cotton farmer's daughter from years ago

Happy Shopping

How much do you want to bet that the prices of the fabric will never reflect the new low cotton prices?
Prices always seem to go up...but rarely will they turn around.

they will go the way of the gas prices -- up up and away. not coming down gas $3.95 today at the pump. I can't see why when we are sitting on top of some of the best oil in the world that we can't use it here in ND instead of it going somewhere else. then we import and pay more.
