    Question Wide Fabric

    Would anyone out there know where one could purchase fabric wide enough to make twin size bed sheets?

    Thank-you,

    JoAnn's has 104" wide that I buy for quilt backings to save work. It's never on sale so watch for a coupon!

    I think you mean http://www.christianlanequilters.com/home.html and they do have very wide backs. The other link is for a singer.

    Thanks everyone for all the suggestions, greatly appreciated. I'm also wondering about the wide fabric in prints for children. Anyone seen anything of such and know where to locate some. Manufacturers make them and have printed fabric for children so a person should be able to get a hold of some somewhere I would think. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks - JJC

    Keepsakequilting.com or fabric.com..also at Joann's. There is no Hancocks near here but would expect they have it.

    Do a google search for "quilt backing fabric" and you will find all kinds of sources. I just did that and found a website called "Backside Fabrics" that seems to specialize in wide fabrics, so I'm off to check them out!
