Default Tea Towels

I'd love to find some great cotton fabric to make into tea towels. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where a good fabric like flour sack fabric can be found? I've looked around a bit thru the internet but without actually touching the fabric, I'm a bit reluctant to just buy it. I purchased a pack of "flour sack" tea towels from Wal Mart and they were more like cheesecloth and the embroidery did not turn out at all. Here's hoping you folks have the answer!

Default Yea towel

The tea towels on a roll at quilt shops are good fabric and you can cut to the length you want. I have used them before.

I don't know if the quality has changed but I had gotten some at Sam's club, that seemed like the ones I remembered from my youth. Do you have a restaurant supply company near by? They may have some.

ETA: When I put flour sack towels in search, a few other possibilities popped up - Williams Sonoma, Joann's and Bed, Bath & Beyond.

I have used diaper fabric... I think it's called 'birdseye'. I found it by the yard at Walmart.

I do not like the games either, it seems when they changed the format on here all these games started showing up, I prefer the quilting questions and pics and tips, .
But to answer original question about tee towel fabric, I think fort worth fab has a lot of bty towel fab, i bout some Christmas from them and its very high quality.
