If no one was crafty life would be boring.

is it just me or is anone else noticing that places seem to be getting less and less good, cheap, pretty fabric? It seems to be so hard to find fabric that isn't really "old" or "young". i have noting against the existance of Dora the explorer or little flowers (heck i even like little flowers some times) but it seems to be hard to find just what you're looking for (jersey in particular) does any one else have issues with this?

replies are so encouraged.... it's scary.

Fabric stores follow fashion just as much as clothing shops do, and it's cyclical I find, both in season and in years. Things you like might end up sliding out of fashion while other things become "in". (For instance right now I'm delighted that owls are "in", but I've been an owl nut for decades. Give it a year or six and people won't be able to GIVE away owls - except to the enduring nuts like me!) I've found it's really not worth my time to shop at certain times of the year, as well. I'm not crazy about pastels and outright can't stand them in large quantities. I avoid any retail place like the plague in the weeks preceeding Easter because I know damn well I'll be unable to walk straight for all the rolling of my eyes. (one more lavender bunny and I'm gonna go postal! Wink ) But Christmas season is a good one for my shopping needs - rich reds, greens, blues, metallics, that's what makes me carol for joy Grin. Keep in mind as well that it seems like a lot of people only seem to sew for their kids/grand kids, so you tend to see a lot of stuff aimed at that crowd, and you might've caught the tail end of "back to school" products.
Basically if you hit a patch where you can't find what you want, give it a few weeks. Season and fashion will change and there might be something more to your taste.

Bringing sexy back for a refund. It really just wasn't "me".
