View Full Version : Fabric by yard??

December 28th, 2010, 10:11 PM
I understood I could post a "squeak" here so if I am out of line...just kick me off...okay?
I am just this winter rejoining the quilting world after never quilting for 25 years. All the new terminolgy of what I used to call squares, triangles, yards, 1/2 yards gets past me sometimes :o
My problem is this...once I purchase a charm, turnover, or whatever, I decide I would like to use
one of the unnamed, unnumbered patterns in that set to make borders or even the backing. I never can find it in the listings of yardage on bolts in your shop inventory. Am I not looking in the right places? I usually have to purchase it elsewhere...which I find by doing long and tedious searches online...which I don't want to do. I really rather be quilting-- and not dealing with an unknown company online. However, knowing how inventory works, I appreciate the reasons you must have for not keeping all designs in stock. But..Is there anyway customers can order through links/information provided on your site? ???
BTW ... I love the tutorials..Youtube and Symboz. The Youtube tutorials are what drew me to your store in the first place. Now I am hooked!! "Mom" (Jennie) teaches so very professionally, yet with such a smile that she makes one feel like a friend instead of an online student. The family, I know, has to be very proud of her.
Thank you much...Sue from Louisiana

I know some they carry but I usually have to purchase it elsewhere for bordering and binding. here is a site I use when looking for a particular fabric. It will list stores that carry it www.quiltshops.com

GlendaSue, welcome back to quilting! I've been at it for about 4 years, and took a break for a little while last year. I'm so glad to be back!

I'm also trying to find fabric yardage from the precuts, so Patrice, thanks for the web site!

Welcome back, GlendaSue! You posted a very good question. Fabric changes so fast, not all shops carry the fabric that was available in 2009. Which is the last time I bought fabric. This www.quiltshops.com is a wonderful website.
