    Help with discontinued print?

    Hello!

    I am very new and looking for any help or guidance more experienced fabric lovers can offer.

    I fell in love with and was inspired by a print from Jo-Ann's quilters showcase line that I discovered is no longer available.

    Can anyone offer guidance on finding older prints? I'm really hung up on this one for projects for my nursery. I have checked ebay and etsy and googled all to no avail. I'm out of ideas!

    Thank you so much!

    ^.^

    Have you posted on this website in the "In Search Of" section. Someone on the board may have the print you are looking for.

    Did your JoAnn's check with other stores for you or is that thing of the past? If you have the SKU #, they should be able to do so. I saw Quilter's Showcase on another site so it's not just a JoAnn's item. If I remember, I'll let you know.

    Sure wish I could help you. I was in the same position a month ago, and got really lucky. Let's Hope someone has this fabric in their stash and can part with it!

    Thank you so much everyone! I haven't been into a Jo-Anns yet, but fingers crossed when I can get into one!

    You might also get lucky and find it on ebay? I have had that happen before. Good luck.

    You can try missing fabrics.com, thousands of bolts carry some older fabrics.

    Thank you again everyone. I emailed missing fabrics, struck out at quiltshops and am keeping an eye on ebay. You've all been so helpful! Thank you!

    There is also FindMyFabric.com. You can search with a description or post a picture. Hope you find it soon.

    Call JoAnn's customer service. You will need the SKU #, but they can check all of the stores in the country. It may no longer be available, but it may be in clearance. I was looking for a specific fabric and they found possibles in 2 states, one in California and one in Florida. I called both stores and regrettably, they didn't have any, but you might get lucky. Also post in the yahoo group, SewItsForSale. Someone there may have it. I searched Google images (uploaded the pic) and nothing came up. Good luck.

    I wish I had some of that fabric for you, but I don't. I know that there was a thread here not that long ago that gave the website where you could look for out of print fabrics. I wish you luck, but I'm sure someone out there in QB land will be able to help you.

    I would print some up on my printer, on prepared fabric. I have done this before when I ran out of a design I needed.

    Try contacting the manufacturer and the designer. A friend was in the same boat and got help this way.

    I was in the same predicament this week. Took me two hours to find the fabric because it was discontinued. I found it at Fabricbuffet.com. You might want to give them a try.

    Try one of the stores nearest you. I just saw a print like that the other day. Will be going there Monday 4-29. Will let you know if it's still there. Hancock fabrics may have it also. If you have a camera phone take a photo of it. Not sure what part of Alaska you're from but some one else may something very similar. or try LQS.

    Don't know what vision you had in mind but, if all else fails, can you use a white background and applique a few butterflies in the same shade of pink to complete your project?

    Once I searched everywhere for a fabric...went on all kinds of websites. When I was about to give up, I "googled" it, listing first the name of the manufacturer, then the name of the designer, and finally the fabric design. (Whatever was on the selvage.) A web store popped right up that had it in stock! I had my fabric in a couple of days. Where there is a will, there is a way!
