I see that she has some fabric on clearance and I've been looking at some that says "Olivia" all over it (I good friend's daughter is named Olivia) and I was thinking of maybe making a tote for her out of it..... but even at $6.59 - plus shipping... maybe I'm too cheap....
I was wondering if anyone "knew" this shop - do you think it will go down more or will this be it?
:)

I'm sorry - I know it was a silly question - how could any of you know! Nevermind me.

I have found that if I wait for anything for the price to go down it is gone when I get there!
No luck here. If you will regret not getting it buy it now.

I KNOW this shop, it is in Washington state. I can't say about whether their price will go down more, but I will never buy anything from them again.

I bought a kit they made up, for a table runner. The kit included a pattern, fabric, and the batting for the project. The fabric didn't include enough of the main focus print to be used as shown in the "picture" of the kit, and the batting was much smaller than the amount called for in the pattern, over 4 inches shorter than the table runner. I went back to the shop with the complaint about the batting being too short, thinking it was a mistake, to be told that they felt that was enough batting, that I could stretch it or seam it.

Guess I'm just too particular, however there are many shops here and all of them have better service than that.

Here's a shop that also has it, in Red & Black, and Black & White, at $6.50:

So maybe it was a good question afterall - thank you Connie! And that place you linked to also will sell by the half yard, which is all I really need anyway. Thanks!! :D

Just my opinion, but looks a little pricey for me.

Yeah I've been in there shop before. After I picked my jaw up off the floor I went elsewhere and found the same fabric much cheaper. They are very proud of there fabric. Keep looking.
Over the Rainbow Quilt Shop on Camano Island in Washington is very reasonable and they have over 12,000 bolts of fabric.
I was recently there and the only reason I had to pick my jaw up off the floor was seeing so much fabric in 1 place. It was awesome.
