        JoAnn's carries a linen cotten blend - during their "summer" season. I
        comes in lots of colors, but I usually purchase white/off white for
        kits and projects. It is around a 50-50 blend and has a nice hand. It
        works well for surface embroidery. You can make garb out of it and use
        dmc floss - and it washes (usually). On sale price is around $5/yard.

          And Fabrics R Us in San Jose has some linnen
          in stock.� Mid weight, I believe.� White, some pastels
          and�dusty�summer�colors, and some plads�and designs
          that will make Aunt Zelda squeel with delight.
          Nothing fine, and no jewel tone colors.

          Located on Berriessa off 680.� Linnen is in
          their main store next to the Chevron station.
          Go all the way� to the back wall and to the right
          for linnen, or ask one of their helpful�employees.


          FrU also carries a lot of wedding, evening,
          drapery and upholstry fabric, some fleece,
          a little suit weight wool (probably with pin stripes)
          and some crinkled muslin, again in dusty summer
          or easter egg colors.� They really don't carry
          cottons, but do carry batting.� Go figure......�
          Their newest store has jersies and
          other summer dress fabric.

          NOTE:� You have to know how much fabric
          you will�need, they do not carry patterns at FrU.�
          Use cash for a 4% discount.

          WARNING: FrU has been described as
          "a bit claustrophobic.".� It can also be over
          whelming.� Do not go an hour before closing,
          as they are trying to move fabric in off the sidewalk,
          and literally block the asiles.

          Some people love this place, some people hate it.
          Shop when you have plenty of time, and
          decide for yourself.� Try to avoid the shop
          on Saturday/Sunday afternoons �if you can.
