Default Any one else seen the JoAnns announcement?

I got an e- mail announcement from Jo Anns this AM .. they have 26 fabrics now made entirely in the US. Has anyone seen these in person? How is the quality? I am hopeful they are more in the line of their premium cottons.
I am hoping more US manufactured fabrics become available. Any other companies making the switch back to US manufacturing?

I got the e-mail and will go to Joann's later this morning to see what the American made fabric looks like. I always loved all of the fabric mills and paper mills...I so hope they are going to come back home!

The last fabric mill was closed for good some years ago. I wonder where the fabric is being manufactured? Refitting an old mill is very unlikely.

I saw some of it the last time I was there. Beautiful fabric, great quality and only $6/yd. not a huge selection though.

Here is a link to the fabric manufacturer. It will be sold in several stores. I'm interested in checking it out. Click the store locator. It shows many, including Fabic.com that so many of us like.
