I recently bought a piece of border fabric by Michael Miller, the selvedge says "Lahini Lobsters". Have checked quiltshops.com, the fabshophop search function, e-bay, and google. Anybody know how old this line is or what else might have been in the line? I want to do one of those table runners designed specifically for border stripe fabrics for my nephew who lives in Hawaiia (Navy guy).

Oh too bad, I have some red lobster on black & white stripe, but obviously not the same as nothing on the selvedge...

WHEW.... what a huge assortment of designs from Michael Miller...but nothing comes up with that at all! Would be wonderful if one of our members actually had some in their stash!

The link above only shows a picture, no fabric for sale. That is a very hard webstore to find anything. I've tried using it before and just gave up.

Their website is usually a mess but if you call them it is easier. Also, ask them for a discount because of "your inconvenience."

Yes, that is the fabric I have. It is so cute. It must be an older fabric 'cause even when I go to the Michael Miller website I can't find it. There are certainly enough colors in it that I can find something, I was just hoping I might find a coordinating fabric. Thanks for the effort.

if you go back to the michael miller site- there is a customer service- contact us- link- when i was in search of a fabric that was almost 10 years old i contacted them- they were wonderful and even sent me the names of a couple shops that actually still had the fabric.... when all else fails try going to the source and just asking-
there is also a fabric search site- you can scan the fabric send it to them and they put out the feelers---a great way to locate fabrics! i (think) there is a posting here on the fabric search site.
