you question won't offend anybody. :P

i wish i could remember the name but i ran across at least one shop that stressed their african fabrics while i was doing the fabric shop hop. they have another hop starting 1 Jan. you could play in the hop and find your shop at the same time.

http://www.fabshophop.com/

also, if you google the phrase "african quilting fabric" a nice long list of sources comes up. this one looks particularly interesting and useful:

http://www.quiltethnic.com/fabrics.html

good luck! :P

I thought I had bookmarked the site, but must've lost it in switching computers. Several projects help African women bootstrap weaving businesses and then buy the fabric through co-ops. If it is in my bookmarks from another name, I'll post it. Wish I could remember the name.

Here are two sites. I hope they are useful.

http://www.culturedexpressions.com/

I know the owner, Lisa Sheperd, personnaly. She is extremely nice.


http://www.andoverfabrics.com/QuiltDesigns/MyAfricanVillage.pdf

I was fortunate to meet Sonie Ruffin, the designer and author, at a quilting retreat is CT.

Let me know if they were helpful.
