I expect most of you have heard the news that
the price of cotton has risen dramatically
and so that's why we're paying more
for our clothing!
But, it's not only the price of new,
cotton fabric which is rising.
A few days ago, I watched bids on a piece of
vintage, cotton feedsack
...it was nothing spectacular either..
and it was up to $80!!
That was for a yard, 36 ins by 36 ins.
$84 is approx £52!!!
How crazy is that?
But there's always someone willing to pay the price!
I spend a lot of time sourcing fabric but there's
a limit to what I will pay.
Anyway, here's a sneak preview of the fabric
which is coming my way and I've found some
gorgeous little gems, just lately!
Plus... my fabrics have had a little mention
in the December issue of the magazine Sew Hip!!
It's a lovely write up, on page 13,
in the 'News' section.

Hope everyone is having a fun week!
