As a follow-up to my previous post, I mentioned that I'd ordered fabric in 2008 because I wasn't going to order any in 2009. Here is my haul - and after going through my stash to reorganize it, I really really really did not need anymore.
First up, an order from Fabric Mart. I love Fabric Mart - great fabric, great price, and prompt delivery.
The photo on the left shows, from the top, lilac stretch velvet, an ITTY stretch for a top, a yellow velveteen (not sure what for), dusty aqua wool, a poly-rayon basketweave for a suit, and a pink/lavender boucle for a spring suit. On the right is the free bundle (10 yards if you order a certain level of fabric), that shows, from the top, 2 yards of a plaid silk dupioni, 3 yards of a crinkled panne velvet (this will be a dynamite top or dress for my d-in-l next year), 3 yards of black linen, 3 yards of a dark blue (although it looks much lighter) rayon and something else gabradine.
Then, I ordered from Fabric.com. They are always a reliable supplier and offer a huge variety of fabric from which to choose. The photos below show the pieces. On the left are two wools: a teal basketweave that I've been watching for a while, and a great wool that the photo does not do justice to. The wool is aqua, dark brown, beige in a square design. I just love it. It will become a coat or something similar. The cotton assortment is in the second photo: a stretch cotton for skirt/pants, then across the front, a light blue broadcloth (that does not match the polished cotton print I'd purchased the fabric to match!), two pieces of Kaffe Fassett cotton, and a Christmas Toy design on ivory. Finally, a great crinkled stripe in aqua - it was on the $1.99 list, and I wasn't sure about it, but I really like it. It will be a great summer outfit.
Then, an order from Hancocks. Hancocks is sometimes not as quick as I would like, but they do have good clearance selections. On the left is a floral from Amy Butler that was on clearance, as was the pink peony. The blue "fortuny" damask is a cotton print. All of these will be great summer skirts. Finally, I've been collecting the Simplicity line by 3 Sisters for Moda to make a quilt eventually. It was on clearance at Hancocks, so I grabbed some more!
Finally, I ordered from e-quilter.com. However, I have not received my order as yet. I actually ordered from e-quilter a few days before I ordered from any other site. A few days ago, when it had exceeded 10 days, I finally emailed. I got a response - that they had sent my order that day, but I was very disappointed. They are a bit slower in sending things out on the average order, but this is really too too slow. Still have not got the package! Maybe this week?
