Do you use Kona Cotton, especially the White? I'm looking for something substantial enough to use in a 1930's pattern that calls for lots of white. Fabric Depot has it on sale...all colors...for $4.55 a yard right now, but I've not used it before and wanted your opinions on it. Thanks!

I buy and use the Kona black and use it all the time. The 6 yard deal at Fabric Depot can't be beat!

Use Kona solids a lot, never the white though. Lots of black.

I get my white Kona from Hancock's-Paducah.com. For 2 or more yards, they charge 3.98 a yard. good deal!

Kona is always a good choice. I have used it for many projects.

I live in GA and had never heard of Fabric Depot. Looked them up, and they have some really good sale items. Especially if you are just looking to expand your stash or if you need fat quarters. Looked really nice. Will have to "visit" again when more money is available!

Wow...that's a better deal since I need several yards. Thanks.

You know, I loved them until my last order and it was a disaster. Shipped one fabric wrong item...okay, this happens so I contacted them and sent it back at their cost and they sent a replacement....still the wrong fabric. Never sent one of the other fabrics and just told me today they cancelled that part of my order. Customer service was very responsive, but they never did get my order right.

I have been to the store....and it is heaven....a full acre of fabric, most of it at a discount....ohhh I just kept stacking up bolts, with instructions...two yards of this stack, one yard of this...in the end I had two carts and a helper out to my car. Oh dear thank goodness, a: it was on an empty credit card, b: I had a small stash at home so there was room on the shelves and c: I can live on peanut butter sandwiches and cold cereal. And thank goodness I live a days drive away, however while a and b are no longer true c is so stitch away.
