    Consider yourself warned.... Moda tried to hold their prices but just couldn't do it any longer. Retailers will be paying more on the next batch of new fabrics. Batiks are going up A LOT!

    I think the sales rep said the retail price per yard would be $12. I looked at the fat quarter bundles and the price would be $4 per FQ. Ouch!

    I'll just have to start buying cheap material and making do. You know, I remember the reason my mother made our clothes was to save money. Now it's cheaper to buy the clothes and not make them. I'm only 40 so I'm not talking about in the 30's or anything. I grew up late 70's and 80's.

    It's a good thing I have enough fabric to last me two lifetimes. I won't be buying at these prices too often.

    The prices of everything is getting nuts, no end in site,as for gas, today I passed the gas station on my way to the gym $3.27 on my way home it was $3.29. It seems its been going up at least 2 cents a day and somethimes 2x's in a day!!
    Groceries too, I noticed that a few of the items that I buy often have gone up over 25 cents since the holidays.
    I think as far as fabric I will only be buying what I will be needing, I really dont have a stash since I have just gotten back into quilting a few months ago. I maybe even only doing small projects only, purses, runners.
    I have been cutting back on almost everything we buy or use and I dont know how much more people are expected to go without or cut back on. I really feel for the seniors on small social security and pensions ....Something really needs to change in our country and quick. I did hear on ther news tonight about the southern states that are going to be growing a hybrid cotton this next growing season but didnt catch it all.

    It's all about the cost of the cotton.

    And to that I say:

    Let's all go out and stock up on underwear!

    (At least we will have nice undies while we dig through our stashes.)

    Here's the stock market trend on cotton for the past 30 years.... the price has more than doubled in the past year.

    Maybe we should have been buying cotton commodities instead of adding to our cotton stashes :roll:

    Well, maybe having a stash to fall back on in slim times is not so harsh. I think I will tell DH about this. :)

    Look at it this way. If prices go up 10% in 2011... and you've invested in fabric, it's like getting a 10% return on your money. Where else are you gonna get that kind of return? AND, you can have your investment right there in the room with you, and you can pet it, and it won't go bad, and even if thieves break into your house they probably won't be interested in taking it.

    So... does this fit the definition of a low-risk, high-yield investment? :lol:

    I was about to get all political...but don't want to get spanked by the mods and admin, so will hold my tongue in that arena...
    May have to find another hobby/craft...this one is already stretching my budget!
