    My fitted sheets wear out faster than the rest of the set. I have looked online for just buying a fitted sheet. Altho the search brings up alot of sites; they don't have anything but sets. Do you know of a place that you can buy just a fitted bottom sheet? Thanks

    NO, I don't. I just recycle the flat sheets into backings for some of my quilts. Or make them into pillowcases.:)

    I have the opposite problem, well sort of. I only use flat sheets on my waterbed, and they're very hard to find since most sheets are sold in sets these days.

    I believe Target sells individual sheets online and a friend told me she gets sheets at JC Penney for her waterbed. Good luck!

    I believe JCP.Com sells separate sheets. Sears may too.

    Most of the department stores sell individual flat sheets, fitted sheets, etc. Penney's Sears, Bed Bath & Beyond, Linens & Things (are they still around?)

    I use the Main Stay sheets from Walmart. They are 200 count and do not pill up. I use flat ones for quilt backs. They are sold separately.

    I have the same problem for my waterbed. My daughter found some for me at WalMart.

    Most of the sheet set components are sold separately at The Company Store. Here are the solid cotton sheets:
    http://www.thecompanystore.com/Compa...ng/E4D7-ps-A11,default,pd.html?start=3&cgid=sheets-solid
    Great to mix and match (if you're so inclined ;-) ).

    Bed bath and beyond sell single sheets that is where I get mine. You can get from 250 to 800 thread count.

    You've never heard of them?
    I've still got comforters from 20 years ago in pristine condition, despite constant use. They're fabulous.

    Just be aware, once you're on their mailing list, the catalogs (as fun as they are to read) just keep coming. And coming. And coming. ;-)

    No, and they never came up on my search. And I got an email that I get 20% off my order. So that is nice. Did you get any fitted sheets from them? I was wondering if they would run bigger in size --I usually need deep pockets for my mattress.

    I recently got some Company Store sheets from a closeout store (Walls) and find them to be really nice sheets. I looked them up online and found they are 200 threadcount but find it hard to believe, they feel so nice. You won't be disappointed with the Company Store sheets.

    Here's the extra deep selection. I've never ordered these (no need) but I have no reason to doubt they'd be any different from the regular sheets.

    The solids I linked to upthread were 300TC. I think the luxury ones go up to 800TC.

    And I spent a couple of winters under the flannel sheets. Beyond wonderful.

    NAYY.
