Yep, I've kind of been on a fabric strike. The average price farmers got for their cotton this past year was 84 cents a lb.......NOT the 1.50 the market was showing. You can check with the DEPT. OF AGRICULTURE to verify. Yes, some farmers did receive the higher prices, but MOST farmers had CONTRACTED their cotton before it was harvested.
COTTON HERE AT BROWN DIRT COTTAGE RECEIVED .75 CENTS A LB.
My local fabric store had already started MARKING UP their prices BEFORE we had even started harvest.
SOOOOO, I have been a little MIFFED at a LOT of those who used the news media and the price of the 1.50 a lb. the market guys were touting as an EXCUSE TO MARK UP THEIR PRICES ON OUR FABRICS!!!!!
OK......I'll get down from my soap box...........WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON??????
