    Where is all the black yardage?

    I have searched JoAnn, Hobby Lobby, M*QC, Connecting Threads, and Fabric.com.
    Nobody has any solid black Kona yardage in stock. Several sites have pre-cuts, but I need it for the border of a quilt, so yardage is the best bet for me. πŸ˜₯
    What is it about black fabric that makes it so scarce? It's not toilet paper! πŸ˜’

    Good question! Glad I'm reasonably stocked. You might try equilter.com and they have fast shipping.
    TRUTH is seldom appreciated, unless you happen to agree with it. When you don't agree, you just call it rude.

      Keepsake Quilting carries black Amish fabric that’s nice, but it’s not Kona.

          Many of the professional people -- firemen, police men, etc. all are wearing black masks. There are many black fabrics with very small prints in them that will also work. Keep searching.

        Masks, reduced production and imports during the pandemic, less factory workers, etc. There will be shortages for a long time.

          I don't care for Kona so I haven't looked for it. It's not a good second choice for me. I found some Bella at FQS, and it's reported that Moda might have more Bella going out on 7/29. We'll see. I have a bolt ordered for when it's available. Black in any brand is tough to come by right now.

              Thanks for this.I don't check TOB because their website isn't the easiest to navigate and isolate searchs.

              See Caroline's comment - I just ordered 3 yards of Bella for less than $7/yd, which I think is pretty good. What are you planning to make with it?

                Wow. I wished I liked Kona.

              Have you checked fatquartershop?
              Or Hancock’s of Paducah?
              These quilt shops are where I
              order my Kona solids.
              Kona solids are the best quality
              for quilters in my opinion.

                Caroline to the rescue! I don't really know enough to have an opinion on Bella vs. Kona, so Bella it is!! Thanks so much! 😘

                  For myself Kona is heavier and scratchy. When you wash it it doesn't get soft.

                Did you browse Amazon? They have quite a few options posted, even table cloths, etc. that could be used.

                  The only black cotton I've found is at Jo-Ann's that you'd usually use for quilt backing 108".......I think the Jo-Ann's in my area had some black Kona (44") cotton a couple of weeks ago, but it's all gone now.

                  Also, to those of you that want disposable masks I found some at Menards:

                  Here's a link to Non-Medical N95 Mask - 10 Pack

                    I bought some black at J.A. about 6 months ago. The girl was already cutting some other stuff for me and I remembered at the last minute I needed black so just grabbed a bolt without looking it over. It is horrible! If you hold it up to the light you can really see how thin it is. It is so bad I set it aside to only use for samples or test blocks.
