I heard it through the grapevine...Westminster and Freespirit Fabrics




That the manufacturers of Amy Butler, Joel Dewberry, Heather Ross, Heather Bailey, Anna Marie Horner, and many more will start instilling a MSRP policy that supposedly states that all of their fabrics have to priced at 9.50 a yard and cannot be discounted until a year after production of the print. This means a giant jump in prices of their fabrics especially if you shoppe on etsy.

What this will do to business is unknown yet, this price rule we start at the beginning of February. If it is not followed suppliers will have their privileges revoked for one year.

True Up wrote a fantastic article about this...

I am not sure if this will apply to previous lines, but have heard that it possibly will for lines that came out in the last year.

So all the new Jay McCarroll and others will most likely be marked up....the more I find out, the more I will keep you all informed. I hate to say this but it may be a time to start stocking up.
