        Hey all!

        In the never ending search for fabulous fabric at
        great prices for my little business, I'm looking for
        some help. :)

        For the majority of my robes, tunics, and dresses, I
        use Kona Cotton--it's lightweight, sturdy, and the
        color selection can't be beat. Problem is that it
        runs at $4.30 a yard regular (around here) and $3.50
        on sale. I found some at $2.97/yard in Atlanta (Hobby
        Lobby, sale runs through July 7 for those who care!
        *grin*) and bought a whole bunch.

        Does anyone know where you can get it cheaper than
        $4.30, prefrabally mail-order or on the internet?

        I also live in NC--there *are* fabric mills in this
        state. I know they're here, and I know that many
        mills will sell end-of-bolt runs or selvages at
        pennies on the dollar. Thing is... I don't know how
        to *find* them. Any thoughts?

        THanks!

          You might try looking up Robert Kaufman (try
          variations) fabrics. I'm not sure where they are
          located, but we order Kona cottons from them. You
          might also try fabric.com (Phoenix Textiles). They've
          always got great deals.

          fabricclub.com
          fabricdotcom.com

          I find most of my fabric sources in the ad sections of
          sewing magazines (SewNews and Threads). If you can
          get ahold of a business to business yellow pages, you
          should be able to find the mills in your area.

          Hope this helps.
