New fabrics at Fabric.com
- OHMY...I don't know if any of you get the newsletter but today they added
some gorgeous fabrics to the site. How would you feel about a 53% silk/47%
cotton blend for $3.85/yard, or 18 patterns of raw silk for $6.85/yard?
Supposedly the wools hit tomorrow...these are all in the couturier section,
and are limited in quantity. Not all of them are in "period" patterns,
etc...but I sew mundanely too!
Here's the blurb from the newsletter...
We have some very unusual new fabrics. I was able to purchase the entire
fabric collection of one of
America's finest couturier women's wear manufacturers. Sorry, I can not
mention the name if I ever
want to get their fabrics again. These are as lovely and unique fabrics as
we have ever received.
Most are European. They are the types of fabrics that, if you ever found in
a shop, would cost
you and arm and a leg. Unfortunately, quantities on most of the items are
quite limited so I apologize in
advance if you do not get what you want. We are adding the fabrics in
groups. Today, it is silk, wool/rayon,
and cotton. We have put them all in 1 section at
Tomorrow (I hope), it will be linen, worsted wools, velvet, etc.
Feeling a bit virtuous for telling you all about it BEFORE I buy all I

information? That way we can keep this high volume community type list and
have a resource list to assist people with questions to ask? I don't know if
it would help. We might just get two high volume lists.
