    I am sure I'm not the only one who has done this. I bought some fabric several years ago, not knowing what I would use it for, and now that I have a plan for it, I don't have enough of it. Any ideas for possibly finding some more of it? It is from a Moda, Brannock & Patek line, "Porch Swing" It is a beige with Brown and red paisley. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I googled moda + porch swing and this is one of the sites that came up.

    http://www.glassthimble.com/store/porchswing.html


    Is this the fabric grouping you were looking for?

    Roselady, I really do like ebay for stuff like that. Go to the main search and look for "Moda Porch Swing fabric" or "Moda Fabric" or even a description like "brown & green Moda fabric" (for the last one check the "search descriptions" box). I've had good luck finding older fabrics.

    I searched ebay for 'cotton fabric' and not that much came up, i searched for 'striped fabric' and loads appeared! Ebay is good as you have craft people AND actual shops selling things, you can get pre cut squares, jelly rolls etc. etc. etc. and search for colours and designers etc.

    Ebay hint ~ you will have better luck if you go to the "advanced" search and check the box "search title and description". I just came from there and found thousands of listings for cotton fabric.

    besides this site, one can post a "wanted" on these sites:

    www.missingfabrics.com
    www.fabrics.net
    www.rjrfabrics.com
    www.ladybuttonfabrics.com
    www.all-about-fabrics.com
    www.cranstonvillage.com

    On the rjrfabrics.com, click on "fabrics" and go from there

    cranstonvillage - one has to sign up

    missingfabrics.com and fabrics.net are great sites
