Stash love …

Last week, I woke up to the sad news that US postage was increasing yet again. Ms QuiltJane wrote on Facebook:

USPS international envelope will now be $US23.95 to Australia. This is like 2.4 yards of fabric being sucked up into shipping. Certainly depressing news for the fabric enthusiast. Based on a 7 yard parcel, the price of fabric per yard will be approx. $13.70.

At this rate, it would be more economical to save up for a ticket than keep ordering fabric. It’s only 75 parcels worth of postage for a return ticket to LA. I haven’t seen quite that much reflected in postage of some of my favourite shops, but I’m sure it won’t be long…

Luckily, I’d got in with a couple of end of year orders before the price rise.

One of my parcels was from the lovely Julie at Intrepid Thread. She had a 20% off sale on Christmas night. I got confused and ordered at the wrong time but she gave me the 20% off anyway! Wasn’t that sweet?!

There’s a few meters of Architextures there that is intended to become a skirt. I couldn’t resist the animals in Mon Amis!

And what else can you see in there?!

If you said Salt Water by Tula Pink, you’d be right!

The other fabrics here were from FabricShack.com which always has half price shipping. I think that’s going to be about the only place I can afford to order from. I just can’t  I just need to find some fabric couriers. Or use my stash. 2013 – year of the stash use…
