Default Be Happy you have a good stash.

Dharma sent me an email that the 10% tariff on Chinese textiles started today. It also mentioned the possibility of it going to 25% in January...but talks are in the works.

**************Please No political comments***************

....just letting you know to be aware of price rises in the textile industry.

Wow, I will count my blessings..I do have a stash of good quality fabric. I just hope I don't have to buy very many to complete a project.

You are so right. I have been shopping my stash for the last 5 years -- fabric has gotten quite expensive without the tariff. I was blessed to buy fabric I liked when I had an income so now I have a bunch.

thankfully many batiks come from Pakistan and Japan produces many fabrics too--but a 25% increase is a real hit on the bank account.

Here in the UK fabrics are already at least 1/3 higher than US so looks like we may end up more in line! That’s why our stash’s aren’t as big lol

I had a feeling. A while ago Joanne Fabric sent an email petition to sign regarding the tariffs so you know they are Very concerned.
