Because the local Joann store is less than reliable when it comes to selection I knew I had to find another source for Kona cotton solids. A Google search revealed lots of on-line retailers who sell Kona solids but as I looked from site to site the same color looked vastly different. Hmm, no good when you're looking to make a match to, say, one of the dozens of prints already in your stash.
I started Googling Kona swatches and came up empty; this is one of the rare times Google let me down. I shot off an email to Fabric Shack, one of the on-line retailers with the greatest selection, describing the paint chip like swatch card I was looking for. Amanda responded quickly knowing exactly what I meant.
For only $5 + $1 shipping one was on its way to me. And its even better than a paint chip. Each little swatch is an actual piece of fabric. I think it's safe now to place an order; I'd better get shopping.
