    I say, stock up on it. Especially with the prices going up, get as much as you can.

    Always stock up when you can afford it, especially if you're getting a good deal.

    Now is the perfect time! It is when I buy my Christmas fabric cause now the shops will have their holiday fabrics on sale. I buy my seasonal fabrics after the season.That's when it is usually 25-50% off,sometimes more if there's a smudge on the corner. If you see the smudge and the cutter doesn't mention it,you point it out ,then she should give you more free to cut around it or more percentage off.My grandma told me that if I forgot everything else she taught me to remember that: Don't buy in the season unles you absolutely have to.

    Retailers are ordering Christmas fabric now. The Moda sales rep was here on Friday and that's what he had in his sample case. But since it's the new stuff, prices were up. If you can buy at 2010 prices you'd better jump on it. Christmas fabric sells all year long.

    I just bought 2 meters of Christmas fabric. I want to get a head start on this christmas and it was on sale for $5.20 a meter which I thought was good.

    I think it would be a great idea to stock up on Christmas fabrics now if you can afford to. With the prices of cotton going up, up, and up, it may save our wallets a little money come fall.
