I had heard of that but hadn't seen it. Thanks for posting the link. Wonder if there are any fabrics Made In America. I know there is furniture but not sure about fabric, I am afraid they moved all our textiles.

Yay!! Great link! My hubby makes metal products for the Phosphate industry. Phosphate is made in the USA. In case you don't know it is what makes up fertilizer for farmers.

I'm Canadian, but thanks for this link. It is such good news and hopefully is effective and will encourage the American economy!

We're just beginning on plans to redo our kitchen. I think I will pull the list and see if we can't do made in America also. Thanks for sharing...

I don't think any fabrics are made in America (at least not quilt fabs.) However, Connecting Threads used to advertise the cotton fabric was made from American grown cotton. Haven't looked recently to see if that is still mentioned on their web site or catalogs.

Oh this video just gave me goosebumps and I thank you for sharing it! My husband and I have been trying very hard to buy everything made in America...whether it costs more or not. If it keeps folks working in my country, then I don't mind one bit.
To the blogger who was wondering about fabric. I am not sure, but I thought the fabrics at Connecting threads were made in America. I am not sure that is still true, but worth checking out.
