I can pipe in with some info here, since Denver Fabrics is local to us
Denver Fabrics (or DF, for short), is one of the few fabric stores I
know of where the employees are *required* to learn the various ways of
telling the content of various fabrics. (There are a couple of local
SCA folks working there, including a friend of mine, and she's told us
about having to learn these sorts of things.) So if they say it's
"linen", there's a very good chance that it really is. The poly/cotton
fabrics pretending to be linen are usually labelled as "Linen-Look" or
The other important thing to note is that they are making it a point to
carry fabrics and notions helpful for historical reenactors. (After
all, there are very few other groups who are coming in and buying fabric
in 10+ yard swatches these days ....) So if there are notions and
supplies that you would like to see them carry, try dropping them a line
and letting them know about it.

- Hi,Its not Denver Fabrics, but TrimFabrics, will let you send a money order, I have ordered twice from them with excellent service and results. Their selection varies as their stock is overruns from clothing production, silks, 100% wools of various weights, linens, right now they have a linen organza I'd love to buy if I could afford 19.95 a yard. http://www.trimfabric.com/Fabric.com will also accept money orders.So you can enjoy some of the online stores and pay in a way you are comfortable with. Another option is buying those prepaid credit cards with a set amount on them. Then you could do Denver Fabrics.YIS,NastasiaI would be best pleased if they had a way to pay by money order for those of us who use neither credit cards nor checks...sniffLaurensawants to order from Denver Fabrics!
