    I found Vera Bradley fabrics sold by the yard...

    I just came across this site that sells Vera Bradley fabrics by the yard. But then I noticed it is in China. If it were in the USA I'd have ordered.

    I have purchased from them. Fabric is beautiful. I do try to buy American but I think this is now made in China. First time I ordered it took a month to ship. My second order only took about a week.

    Everything is made in China anyway so might as well buy direct.

    Is this authentic? I was just talking about Vera Bradley yardage with my friend over the weekend. Is there anyway to know that it is authentic?

    Unfortunately, I do believe most if not all fabric is "made" in China these days.....how about the batiks...these are done somewhere in the mideast or some third world island somewhere are they not??????

    Btiks are typically made in Indonesia.

    Some q fabric is produced in Korea....better quality.

    With all of the gorgeous quilting fabric in our local quilt shops WHY would anyone want to buy Vera Bradley fabric? Where is our "originality" ?

    I order from Vera Bradley online. There are 50% - 60% off sales, especially on the discontinued fabric bags. The workmanship and quality are excellent on every bag I have bought. The large duffle is a must have for me and makes great gifts for the hard to buy for girls and ladies. My grandaughter loves VB. It's really the in thing right now for high school girls in this area. As long as I can buy for half off I don't want to make a bag. I couldn't do as expertly made as they are.

    I have to disagree. I personally am interested in the fabrics for backings. Vera Bradley has some very unique prints that I would love to have on the reverse of a quilt. I am not into quilted bags or accessories so a pre-quilted piece of Vera Bradley wouldn't peak my interest at all but that is me. Just because you don't like something does not mean that others may not and it does not justify an attack on other people's creativity or originality.

    I just had a customer quilt where the salvages had been left on the edges of the backing and it said the fabric was made in Japan. It was new fabric too and very good quality.

    When I said that most fab is produced in China, I did mean it to mean it was inferior quality...I just meant it is a shame that we no longer produce fabric in mills here like we used to. Another thing we have to depend on another country to provide us with....I guess that is global economy 101.

    I stand corrected. Thank you.

    Not to be a downer, however, it is likely counterfeit.

    It probably is AUTHENTIC. I live in the city that Vera Bradley started in. The company was one of the largest emplyer in our city. A few years back the company decided to outsource to CHINA. Though there is still an large office here and a smaller production plant about 30 minutes south of our city, it was a huge blow to our economy.

    Please look closely at the website, counterfeit goods come from China all the time. If intercepted, the goods will be destroyed. If the price is significantly lower than you can buy at a legitimate source, you are dealing with a counterfeiter buy at your own risk.

    The pattern I have wanted for a while is the "Symphony in Hue" which is now discontinued. I love it..so instead of buying fabric I ordered their messager bag from the VB website. Luckily I registered two days ago but I kept putting off deciding which piece I wanted. Then tonight they sent me an email with a code in it for free shipping and $20.00 off when you spend $75.00. So I ordered the messenger bag and a lunch bag for my gd since I don't need another tote bag.. So I am happy.

    This is true and duly noted. My best guess is that this fabric is either seconds or large remenants. Considering the fact that the fabric is now manufactured in China I think there is a large chance that it could be authentic. I would be more suspicious of a domestic company with amounts of this fabric for this price seeing that it is not manufactured here any longer.

    I liked the Vera Bradley Facebook page and get coupons all the time, most are 60% off different items. Never pay full price for VB at the store.
    Got fabric?

    I don't do facebook so to register at their website was the next best thing for me to do.
