  • Price increases for 2009?

    I have been in contact with a couple of fabric suppliers in the last few days and interesting to see while one is saying most of their fabrics have only increased by 3% (and a few have stayed the same or even decreased in price slightly), another seems to be increasing most fabrics by 20% !

    Anyone else have any info?

    Academy Clairtex have put their prices up a lot - Over 20% in some cases so I won't buy from them again.

      I have been told by Streets that some of their fabrics could go up by as much as 20%. Swaffer also will be increasing their prices by as much as £3-4 per metre retail.

        Parkertex have increased their prices tremendously too - some are as much as £10 per metre retail more.

          My Prestigious rep said there would be a new price list out in January. That's suprising as I think their last one was August.

            Some of the price increases are due to the poor exchange rate of the pound - it has dropped around 20% against the euro so any fabrics bought in from Europe will be more expensive.
