    I have just returned from a visit to Disneyland and LA with my family. Prior to going I had posted on this board about the best shops to go to while I was there. Janet (carslo) very kindly offered to take me to M & L Fabrics. OMG...this is the most amazing fabric store that I have ever been in and considering the price of fabric in New Zealand (about USD$20 a metre), I was in heaven.

    Janet and her friend Clara picked me up at 11.30 and I think we returned 4 hours later!!! I spent a considerable amount of money there and had to buy an extra suitcase to get all the fabric home!! I cannot thank Janet and Clara enough for their kindness. We had such a fabulous time and shared lots of laughs and stories.

    Me on the left, Janet and Clara

    Glad that you had a great time. I have been in there several times. Considering going in a couple of days if I can get down there to visit my Grandson.

    so glad you got to see M&L. I am very fortunate (or as my husband thinks - unfortunate) to live about 20 minutes from M&L. it's awesome! Hope you enjoy all your wonderful fabric!
