Has anyone else heard about the rising cost of cotton and bamboo fabric?  I've gotten a several messages from coop hosts that the cost of cotton fabric is expected to go way up, as much as $15/yd for quilters cotton by next summer (we've been paying about $6.)  I have a decent sized stash, but I'm wondering if now is a good time to stash a little more.  Anybody else thinking about this?

You are right, if it is something you regularly use, then it is best to plan ahead. Not only is the price up, but supply is not going to keep pace with demand. So, you may not get what you need in the future. I dont think companies are going to produce as much.
