I'm in December's Sew Hip magazine!;-)

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.

Click to enlarge!

Hope everyone is having a fun week!

Now turn to page 23

Fun loving man seeks lady in her ***ties with a view to a lifelong romance, possibly marriage, providing she's not too heavily into crafting. Must have GSOH or at least a weak right hook and slow on her feet.

I think I might know who "anonymous" is......... I fell about laughing...........

Didn't know about the increase in price of cotton, but agree it was rather a lot for a piece. Well done re the magazine article, hope you get lots of trade from it. Realise I have been a bit remiss and not answered re the last weekend in November: YES I certainly hope to be there and buy from you again. :O))))

£52!! Someone has more money than sense. Hope they make something nice with it after spending that money. Perhaps they should frame it and put it on the wall.

How lovely ... and very well deserved too, your fabric is lovely.

Great write up Sal :) I think the prices have gone up because more people know about it now, it seems to be the 'in' thing at the moment!!! :)
