     OK, credit for this one goes to flyinpurplemunkiez (go check out her thread here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=38330.0). If you go to http://www.distinctivefabric.com/, you get 10 free fabric swatches just for signing up (it's free, but you need a credit card.) Then, you get 10 more every time you place an order. My swatches haven't arrived yet, so I'm not sure how big they are, but I'm sure they're great for scraps, quilting, etc.

I just ordered some a few days back, and mine haven't arrived either, but I saw somewhere on the website that they are 4" x 5".

I ordered some swatches for my sister to look at - she's redecorating and ended up ordering some of the faux cow print fur and mink faux fur for myself.  Can't wait and I was really happy to see that they accept Paypal as well as credit cards - my eBay selling is paying off!!!  Thanks for the info, but now I need more money for fabric (not that I really need more fabric!)

Can't wait to get my furs!

Awesome.  I bought fabric from Denver fabrics and it took FOREVER to get my swatches and I had to pay for them.  Nice fabric though!

Got my burgundy "mink" fabric and the cow print fabric today - love them!!!  Worth every penny, now to figure out what to do with the mink - so soft and pretty.  I'm going to use the cow print for a handbag of some kind.  I was going to use the mink for pillows, but that just doesn't seem to do the fabric justice!  Hmmmmm, I'll post as soon as I make something with them.  Definitely worth ordering  - in the letter they explain that if you aren't happy, return the unused portion and they'll give you a pro-rata refund!!  How often can you return fabric?!

If you haven't checked them out yet, go for it!

Great idea! The only problem is that they don't ship outside the USA  Cry
