I wouldn't worry about it. Every show I have gone to has licensed fabric galore...and I've never seen any fabric police arresting anyone.

She is 100 per cent correct. It doesn't matter what state, city, county, or burb, once you buy the fabric, it is yours to do with as you please. Disney was notorious for threatening people to cease and desist, but after a few bouts in court, they have given that up. You are free to do with the fabric as you please. No Questions. I wish people who say that you can't sell the licensed fabric, would come up with court law that says this.

Legal or not, large trademark holders like the NFL do have scouts that walk through craft shows with cease and desist orders at the ready. They threaten both the vendor and the show sponsor with court action. Usually that's all it takes for the sponsor to ask the vendor to pack up and leave. Often the sponsor then bars licensed fabrics/images from all future shows. Mission accomplished for the trademark holder.

What it all boils down to is the risk you, personally, are willing to take. You may very well be in the right, but are you ready and willing to spend the time and money to prove it in court? No one here can decide that for you.

ghostrider- mr Google does not show any of this happening. Doesn't mean it didn't. Can you give some specifics so we can get more details?

If you purchase a "licensed" fabric, it stands to reason that it now belongs to you, and you can do with it as you wish

Easiest thing to do is email the manufacturer. They may give permission for you to sell a certain number.

You don't have to e-mail anybody. If they sell it, and you buy it, it is yours to do with what you please.
So what if they tell you no. will you quit buying that fabric? Now what do they accomplish by that?
How about just 1 newspaper article, one news story, one letter, any papers filed. Anything to show that this has happened.
