Fabric question...

Where do y'all find your stitching fabric? My only sources here seem to be Joann's or Michael's, and they are limited to mostly Aida fabric. I don't necessarily want hand-dyed linen, but a nicer quality, softer fabric would be nice. Just curious. Andrea

Ebay is a great source, try seller "dan9!" - without the quotes... or Down Sunshine Lane, Stitching Bits & Bobs, Silkweaver, Enchanted Fabrics... all are online :-)

I but most of my fabrics online as here in Malaysia, linen and evenweaves are very, VERY limited indeed. Wasatch Needlecraft and Needlecraft Corner are a couple of my favourite online shops. Hand-dyed fabrics I mostly use Silkweaver with a few PTP, Sassy Fabbys thrown in. Links are on the left of my blog.

I get Monaco evenweave from Hobby Lobby but for the most part, I order fabrics from online shops. I LOVE Enchanted Fabrics but for solid colors I shop at 123stitch.com or abcstitch.com. I would so much prefer to buy everything locally but I don't have that option.

I am unfortunate to live in the Northwest, and there are no Hobby Lobby stores here - I'd have to go to Salt Lake City. I'm making a list of the other sites (I've looked at Silkweaver and Enchanted Fabrics), for price compare.

Thanks, Carol, I'll look for that seller.

My closest LNS is an hour away. But if I want to use what a chart recommends, I call them up and they ship to me. http://www.heartfeltstitches.com/ (their store name is Stitches from the Heart). They are wonderful! Other than that, it's online. All we have here is a Hobby Lobby (thank goodness we have that!) but they don't carry any linen I like. Probably varies by store and area.
I also love Nordic Needle and The Silver Needle. They have wonderful customer service.

I've taken the Aida and thrown it in the washer (being sure to use a fray product around the edges) to soften it up, then dyed it with apple paints for custom colors.
