yes they bore me too... especially since i worked for hancocks, i know their stock backwards and forwards. The only other fabric store i shop at in austin is honeybee quilt shop, which is quilting fabric, i'm not sure what kind of fabric you're looking for but honeybee's is definitely my favorite fabric store in austin. There is also calico corners, which i haven't been to in forever but i think they are mostly a home dec store.

I don't know what specific kind of fabric you're looking for, but I think Silk Road has a nice selection especially for silks, velvets and other fancy stuff. They also have a nice collection of vintage buttons.

I found this while wandering the internet:

http://www.firstsamples.com/pages/textiles_trims_notions.shtml

Basically, it's a list of places some sewing school recommends.  I've only been to Fanny's and Silk Road, but it's good to have some places to check out.

So this is actually linked to on the last page I suggested, but it's much better, so I thought I'd throw it up here, too.
