    Trying to Find

    I'm trying to find a Robert Kaufman fabric called America's Heroes - Police. It has images of police related items (handcuffs, policeman, flashlight, etc.). I don't know how whether it's still available or not. Any help finding this would be appreciated. TIA.

    I tired but just found a similar plain red from the collection on the BugFabric website. I HOPE that someone has the fabric you need. I am always running short on fabric when I try to make a quilt but then mostly it is donated fabric. Good Luck !!

    I have googled it but couldn't find it in stock.

    I don't want juvenile fabric. This for my DH.

    This is not Robert Kaufman but it does have police badges.

    Do you have a picture of it? If so, post it on MissingFabrics.com. It has helped me several times to locate fabric.

    Thanks for the link. I knew there was a site for missing fabrics but I didn't remember the name. I have a picture but it was removed in a previous post. The admin said it was copyrighted but I took it off Google images.

    I can't help, but if you husband is a policeman I want to thank him for being so brave at this time in our country.

    Thank you. Thankfully he hasn't been on the force for many years but it's still something he loves. He's retired. I'm glad is isn't in law enforcement in today's world. There doesn't seem to be any respect for authority anymore.

    Also try ebay, I've luck a couple of times in finding fabrics that were no longer in shops.

    I have a small amount (12" x WOF) of this fabric: https://www.threadbias.com/fabrics/61260

    Is this what you are looking for? I also have several other Law Enforcement themed fabrics, left over from a retirement quilt I made a few years back, that I would be willing to send to you.

    Also, this link may have some of that fabric with the blue background. It's worth a try.

    MaggieLou, here are the fabrics I have in addition to the one we already discussed. I was not able to PM them from my computer...the only option was to link to a URL. If any of these will help you with your project, PM me and we'll work something out.
