    Thumbs up Where is all the Christmas fabric??

    This weekend I went to 3 LQS's in search of sale priced Christmas fabric - I need to make a new tree skirt for next year. What a disappointment - all that was left was either snowmen or children themed fabric. I came home and searched online several sites, and still was not satisfied with the offerings. Do I have to wait until next Fall to purchase the fabric at full price?

    Probably Christmas in July they will start selling, and hopefully not full price.

    Have you tried fabric.com? It appears they have some and there is also some coupons that you can redeem.

    I purchased some this morning on connectingthreads.com They are having clearances and the yardage price was really fantastic. According to many on this board, including me, their prices and quality are very good.

    The LQS I go to has Christmas fabrics available all year long. Tomorrow is the annual sale date. I was not as thrilled over this past year's choices but I can generally find something I want buy.

    I think that stores in general (including quilt stores) are not buying as much seasonal stuff this year because they don't want to get stuck with it after Christmas and have to sell it so cheap.

    in the search box on fabric.com type in coupons and they should come up. It's like 15% off for a certain amount that you buy and it goes up from there.

    The LQS's close to my area seem to be carrying less and less holiday fabric every year. Actually, rather scarce to find.

    Much to my surprise Fabric.com had a large choice after Christmas, I am not sure what is left now though.

    I was in Hobby Lobby yesterday and they had a good selection at 50% off.
    Every day, I find it harder to live up to my blue china.

    Where all did you look? Here are a couple of places that I found that had a pretty good variety of sale Christmas Fabrics.

    i find it very strange that retail stores and magasines have not realized we need themed fabric all through the year[good stuff at areasonable price] its not as if you can run up all the xmas suff in a month----------also magasines who fill all their pages with---easter/spring/ fall/xmas stuff the month these things are happening--a] not everyone celebrates these events b] we need time to produce the items----can we not have a mix of stuff through the year

    I think the LQS are carrying less seasonal fabrics now that so many people but on line. I used to be able to depend on Walmart for great seasonal fabric but we lost our fabric department. My LQS carries Christmas but not Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Halloween like Walmart used to.

    I looked just before Christmas for a different fabric for the table runner I was making and it was slim pickins then. Good luck.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    I found very little "Christmas leftovers" in any category. I think the retailers were being very careful in their ordering this year!

    The fabric store that I frequent here in Ontario had tons of Christmas fabric left - 4 or 5 round display carousels with the bolts wedged in...now mind you most of it I wouldn't give a second look to, not my cup of tea compared to the more contemporary/retro patterns that I prefer but I picked up a few small prints that will get used - and one piece I am going to go back and get yardage asap now that I have seen the 2012 Basic Grey christmas fabric - gorgeous!

    Check equilter.com -- they seem to have a bunch left -- but the prices are not all reduced.

    Have you tried the shops on e-bay? I saw some gorgeous Christmas fabrics on there the other day! Just check out the seller & make sure they have lots of good feedback so you aren't disappointed.
