    Vera Bradley fabric

    A week or so ago someone posted a link to buy Vera Bradley fabric. There was discussion about wether it was a legit company or not. I orderd some, taking a chance I know. It was reasonable and only $5.00 shipping no matter how much you ordered. The fabric came today and it sure looks like the real thing, salvage is Vera Bradley trade mark, if it's a knock off its a good one. I will be making a quilt for my sister who loves Vera Bradley bags. Happy quilter here!!

    I can't figure out how to attach the original link but if you put Vera Bradley fabric in the board advanced search it will come up. Sorry I know it can be done .... Old dog,new tricks thing is going on.

    This is a website set up from China. Look at the About Us info and their location:

    Our Location

    Address:
    HomeFabric
    No.6780nong Huming Road
    Shanghai 200012
    China

    I peersonally wouldn't trust that it is legitimate Vera Bradley fabric. (Oh, they also sell punk rivets, whatever they are!)

    But it's 59 " wide so it's the equivalent of 1 1/3 of 44 inch fabric, so the price is in line. 6" cottons?? Usually 60" fabrics are a blend.

    I have lots of Vera Bradley purses and I ordered some the fabric that matched my last two new purses to make wallets. It feels exactly like the purse fabric, it has the same weight, same color in the fabric print as the purse. I'm very happy with it. The wallets are usually $40 or more so the fabric is good buy.
    Got fabric?

    That's interesting, thanks for the info ... and yes, there IS a LOT of knock-off VB merchandise online. I made the mistake of ordering from an ebay seller with good reviews, but they were all knockoffs. I guess a lot of people don't know how to tell the difference, or just didn't complain ... So, buyer beware !!

    My granddaughter has Vera Bradley fabric. It seems of good quality and weight. The problem now is how to piece them into a quilt as the colors and prints are quite different and do not match up. They are Priscilla Pink, Plum Petals, Hope's Garden, Va Va Bloom, and Tooty Fruity. I was wondering how a Dresden plate would look made out of these prints. Could someone look these prints up and help me with suggestions? I appreciate any assistance or suggestions. Thank you so much.

    Vera Bradley closed their Indiana plant and they now manufacture all their goods in Red China. It wouldn't surprise me in the least that remnants are being sold from a seller in Red China

    This is an old thread but I was wondering if someone can confirm...again...if they have purchased from this sportingnow website and how you paid while protecting your identity/information...

    Interesting, I asked in our local VB store and they said she didn't do fabric. Of course things change with these designers.

    I've ordered from them and the fabric comes pretty quickly. It is gorgeous.
