Just yesterday, I heard the same thing cotton prices. A friends' family grows cotton. And so they are getting paid more for their cotton this year-which means we in turn will pay more for the items made with cotton ; (
Thanks for sharing! That's a great idea! Also in case you haven't heard...Cotton prices are going to go up....and I mean WAY UP! I have a daughter that works at a store where they sell cotton fabrics and the store owner just came back from their trip where they do their ordering for the upcoming year. Be prepared for fabric prices to start shooting way up. The fabric at their store that sells for 9.00 to 12.00 a yard (already expensive)..will be shooting up to about 27.00 a yard. They may no longer be able to carry that product because of the price increase. I also confirmed this price hike with a very large fabric store in Portland. Although they couldn't give me exact prices, they said that yes...we will be seeing a large increase. You can also go online and check out "Cotton Price Increases" and read different topics on it. Demand is outweighing what we are able to produce and store houses are becoming empty. Before you toss some old piece of clothing item that you don't feel is good enough to wear, I would suggest that you consider saving the buttons on the item, and then cut it up in small squares for quilting or other projects. It may save you money down the road!
