Wendy made a comment about the price we have to sell fabric for. I couldn't agree more, compared to the US our fabric is very expensive. I know customers do source fabric over the internet and are able to get it at a far cheaper price. I cannot buy it for what it is sold for in the States.
Sad really because little shops like mine can't compete, in fact many in my area have closed down. Another reason why l decided to move Mrs Martin's back home, to cut costs. So many designers and quilt groups run their own stitching days, my move has allowed me to take the shop to these events.
