    even on the internet you can find batiks and other hand dyes ranging anywhere from $6 to $24 a yard.

    The LQS here just got in some very pretty batiks, and the new price is $9.99/yard. When I told her that JoAnn's had some from $12.99 she was shocked.

    We have our batiks priced at $8.99 - $9.50 / yard. http://www.favoritefabric.com/cgi/co...ik_fabric.html

    And they're all very nice batiks, from Hoffman, Kaufman, Timeless Treasures and Moda.

    We're trying our best to keep prices down as much as possible on all our fabrics.

    my LQS had new batiks at 10.99/yd. I'm so happy I have a huge stash. Will be diving into it when I get a wedding quilt finished.

    Batik at our LQS is anywhere from $16.95 to $22.95 (Canadian $), depending on the manufacturer and shipping, etc.. I buy it when it goes on sale, which is not very often.

    Barbara (quilter on the eastern edge) - batik prices are about the same at our LQS also. I buy when they are on sale or when I go to the US.

    Darn! Are you in the GTA? I thought I could pick up some cheaply when I visit my sister in October. Guess I'll cross batiks off my list. :(

    You at least do not have to pay the high prices that we have here in Australya!
    12.99 sound very cheap to me!

    Has anyone else seen Batik's this highly priced?
    cjmomma, LQS batkis have been in the $12-15 range here in western Michigan for about 6-8 months and I was just speaking with an ownere and she said they were going up agian. I love batiks and so I shop batiks plus quite often.

    I am still shocked mainly due to the fact that in this little town they won't sell for that price. This is mostly a retirement community even tho we have a university here people can't afford those prices. Even the store manager couldn't believe the prices. She when someone hears the price they just put it back on the shelf.

    I love batiks, and have lots in my stash, but there is always room for more. My LQS has prices around $9-$10 and a sale going on through the end of May for 20% off. I think I need to go buy some more reading the prices from some of the other areas, wow, especially Canada. I have bought some from Connecting Threads, beautiful colors.

    We all will be seeing those high prices due to the failure of the world's cotton crops over the last 2 seasons. Not only are yard goes going up, so will clothing, especially t-shirts and blue jeans. I am trying to buy ahead, my LQS is having a sale this week before the higher priced fabrics come in.

    Sadly, unless you find it on sale, those prices are about the going rate.

    A local (Columbus, Georgia) quilting shop has beautiful materials. You might find something you like there. I love their fabrics.

    Hi! I'm back from Bali! I just haven't gotten my butt in gear yet - been in Arizona. Mine will most likely will be $7.25/yard this time. Beautiful stuff - email me ([email protected]) if you're not on my "list".

    I've seen batiks online for $13/yard - prices are going up just like everything else! Last night at the market, my 5 lb. bag of sugar was only 4 lbs - sure hope a yard of fabric doesn't change to 32"!!!!
