    You folks need to come to the Finger Lakes. The Mennonite stores have absolutely NO character but they have amazing fabrics and the prices are unbelieveable. There are two w/in 30 minutes of me. One is a general store (no foods, but everything from stationery to underwear to pots and pans) with a fabric corner. The other used to be Hoovers Shoes, but recently changed their name. Probably b/c she sells more fabric than shoes. They still have the shoes, as well as bonnets & hats, but more fabric than ever. Golden something or other now.

    Fabric is about $5.50/yard and is includes all of the usual manufacturers - Moda, Thimbleberries, Lakeshore, Benartex, etc.

    Both stores have lots of batiks. Want to come? Maybe we can do a little shop hop and a miniature horse showing of sorts. Come on, Karla, let's get them here for a visit!

    oh, I was going to say ty, ty, ty HMK for asking this. I will be needing some batiks soon and I did not know that they have a tighter weave. I will definitely be picking them out in person so I can 'feel'. Also, it was pointed out to me, to 'open' fabric up, bc with batiks, the colors can be all different as you unroll bolt. good thing to know.

    I have bought from Batiks.com when I lived in VA and could shop there in person. They have a good supply of fabrics and will ship to you.

    Good luck,

    Wanda

    ty for that MsSage. Do you find the batiks to change much as you unroll? Can only see one small part online. Maybe I should buy a little and get the 'experience'.

    There's an ebay store I've purchased from a number of times. Least expensive Hoffmann's I've every seen and nice service.

    Try this link: http://search.ebay.com/search/search...fsop=32&fsoo=2

    If that doesn't work, the seller is smithville_ohio. You should see the Balis at $4.99!

    NAYY, just a pleased customer.
