    HELP! I need more of this fabric

    I'm hoping some of you can help me. I'm looking for Fabric Traditions Silhouette fabric #0505 to complete a project. I originally bought it at JoAnn's a few weeks ago but they are out. I can't find it online or at any of the LQS close to me. I need another yard. Here's a photo of the fabric.

    Would your Joanns be willing to check with some of the other Joanns in the area?

    Is that line one of the ones you can only find at Joann's, or is it mass-marketed to everyone? There is a LQS in my area that is carrying a line of fabrics in those colors, but I don't know if she has that exact same print. If it's a mass-market line, I can run over there and look. Or, I can give you the phone number and Susan, the owner, will be able to tell you if she has it or not.

    I checked the two in my area but neither one had any more. They didn't have it online either.

    Thanks for all your help but I think I have the problem solved. I finally emailed Fabric Traditions to see if they could help. I got a relpy from them that this pattern had been discontinued but the very nice lady who sent the email said she found a yard in the office and offered to send it to me. Since they don't sell to individuals, she just asked if I would post the finished product to their Facebook page. Of course, I happily agreed to that. Great customer service on their part. I got an answer to my email in just a few hours.

    Color's a bit different, but this is a starting point.

    Thanks for the link. I checked Hancock's but didn't find it. Fabric Traditions lists the description as yellow so this is probably the same fabric. If FT doesnt' work out I'll check with Hancock's.

    Glad you solved your problem but FYI for everyone. If you bought fabric at Joanns and your store doesn't have anymore they will get it from the wharehouse as long as you have your recipet which contains the product number on it. I now pin my recipet to scraps of fabric from that trip and pin it to my cork board. Then when i finish the project i toss the reciept out.....or because i just fell in love with the fabric and need more (just in case) I go buy more LOL

    I just saw some yesterday at Joanne's in Fort Worth, Texas. It was the store at Ridgemar. Go on line and see if you can find it there. Hope this helps.
