    Can you help me find this fabric?

    About 2 months ago, I purchased 1/4 yd. of a very pale pink/orchid material at Joann's with small white flowers. I liked it so much that I returned a week or so later to purchase a few yards but have not found it again - at that Joann's or 2 others in my area. I do not know how to post a photo here to help, but the selvage reads "Juliette"

    to post a picture- first down load the picture on your computer- then above the (comment box) where you type your comments there is a line of (thumbnails) starting with changing your font, bold, italic, underline-ect...along that line you will find one with a tree---click on it- a browse button & box will come up-
    click on browse- locate your picture- choose it- click on upload *under the box*
    when the picture is done uploading you will see a small version of it & your comment box where you can write more- when finished click on the post button just like you do when you you post any comment- your post with picture will show up.
    you might try Joanne.com to locate your fabric...

    Have you checked Joanns online?
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    Patrice said I had my editor turned off. I didn't have any thumbnails. She did it for me (Thank you, Patrice!) Click on "Settings" at the top of the page, see if you can turn on your editor.

    Call JoAnn's customer service and have them do a search nationwide. DH's aunt works at JoAnn's. This was her suggestion. I did that on a fabric I was looking for. There was a possibility in clearance in either Florida or California. Customer service gave me the phone numbers for those stores. I called both stores, regrettably, they didn't have it. That's where I would start. If they don't have it, then post pics, hoping that one of us may have it.

    Please post a photo - I have a stash of lilac and will look through to see if I have yours.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    What wonderful ladies you are to help! I changed my settings, now have the thumbnails and tried posting the picture (jpg) but it will not, either in original size or compressed. Does it need to be a certain size? I really want to learn the photo posting process here. Any ideas?

    size needs to be 640x480. You can use paint on your machine to change the size. Good luck.

    If you take the SKU# from your receipt back to the store, they can search thru the telzon to see which stores have it. I will be going to my Joanns, this morning...made a miscut yesterday. I'll look and see if anything looks possible.

    If you go to the help section, (the last item on the home page menu) there is a really good instruction post there with pictures. That was how I learned.

    It's been my experience that any fabric purchased at Joann's is only available through Joann's, and I second the poster who recommended you have Joann's check their computers.

    Here is the fabric I am trying to find.

    I bought 1/4 yd. of this fabric (I believe at Joann's) a couple of months ago, and cannot find it in Joann's again. Do you recognize it or have you seen it in your Joann's? If I could get the code from the bolt, perhaps they can find me more. Name:  Juliette Fabric.jpg
