    And if you do... are you stocking up for projects for next Christmas? Or working on winter projects cause... it's still winter?

    this year,I purchased a number of holiday fabrics after so that I wouldn't run into the problems I did in 2009 when I didn't have fabric, and it was 8pm or 6am and had no chance to go buy any....

    We've had more interest in the Christmas & winter holiday fabrics this month than in December. I thought that was rather unusual... which is why I asked the question.

    I hadn't thought much about buying Christmas material on sale for next Christmas until Joann's had Debbie Mumm Christmas fabric on sale for 70% off. I also used a coupon for an additional 10% off. But THEN, I went to our local Ben Franklins looking for a crib cheater panel and OMG they had all their Christmas fabric on sale for 75% off!!! And it is name brand, good quality quilting fabric. I had been drooling over a panel with snowman called winter friendships and warm winter wishes (a thick yummy flannel) and the coordinating fabrics in one of my quilt mags or maybe the internet. And they had it. The regular price is a little lower than anywhere else I have seen it. Most is actually winter fabric not only Christmas. I got about 25+ yard of fabric for a little over $50! And I had to force myself to quit! but I am ready for next Christmas, and the next, etc. I am off work tomorrow and intend to start designing a winter flannel lap throw with the warm winter wishes fabric. Hope to have it pieced over the weekend.

    I guess that you know that there is a Christmas every year, so you might as well take advantage of the sales now and be ready.

    NO! I'm trying to use my stash - only buying what I need to finish a particular project.

    I find I am buying them now, when they are on sale, so I can start on some specific Christmas projects. I started a tree skirt for 2009, but started too late, and didn't get it done in time. I would like to make stockings and table runners and even a couch quilt and a wall hanging. So when I see it for a good price, I will get it.

    I buy fabric at any time - any season at any time of the year - especially when I find it on sale for a great price...actually, I picked up some Christmas panels today...so it's already started for another year. 'smile'

    If I see a fabric I love at any time of the year, I'll buy it before I can't find it again. I particularly love snowflake fabric.
    I do play a little game with myself. If I see Christmas fabric right before the holiday, I tell myself I don't have time to make anything with it. If I see it in Jan., I think I can make something now and be ready before next Christmas.
    By the way, the LQS around here did not put a lot of Christmas fabric on sale after the holidays here.

    I'm addicted to fabric. I know when I walk into a fabric store that I'm going to buy something. I asked my daughter what she is planning to do with all my stuff when I die. She replied "Nothing. I'm making this into a museum!"
