The insane amount of internet shopping was the fault of one Heather Bailey. Soon after she unveiled her Pop Garden and Bijoux fabric lines I had envisioned two major projects. These projects required nine prints at a total of 17 yards plus 5 yards of white to break it all up. The best part? The new fabrics didn’t begin showing up in stores until the end of July and I have a self-imposed deadline of Labor Day weekend.
8 of the 9 prints + whiteUnfortunately, my former favorite on-line retailer for one stop faric shopping made the decision not to carry Westminster or Free Spirit fabrics any longer. That means no Amy, no Heathers, no Joel, and no Anna Maria. Crazy! It was a very sad day indeed when I received that e-mail. That meant I had to find a new retailer.
Browsing all over the internet I couldn’t find a single retailer who had the entire collection. What I did find were three fantastic sellers who really came through for me in crunch time: fabricsupplies, sewlovefabrics, and Quilt Home. They couldn’t have been nicer to work with in setting up custom orders, their prices were good, and their shipping was incredibly fast. Just what I needed with September looming. Definitely give them a look the next time you’re shopping for fabric.
a baker's dozen of the 17Now here’s where you will think I’ve really lost it. I didn’t stop at the nine fabrics I needed. I ordered an additional 17 fabrics just because I loved them and they seemed to be hard to get. And I might as well only pay for shipping once or thrice, right? Please, tell me you’re just as crazy about fabric as I am.
