Thanks, everyone! That definitely makes me feel a LITTLE better.... I'll be sure to check out those websites later today when I have more time!

Also, I think it's a shame that Joann's does the whole "meet the needs of the main buyer" thing... I mean, I understand that it's all a supply and demand thing, but I live in an area that has been plagued w/ unemployment... Honestly, the university is the only thing keeping this town going, to tell the truth... So, for me, I can see why they don't have a huge selection, but I personally need something more than quilt fabric!

It stinks, b/c this is the only fabric store here, and while there is also a Joann fabrics in my hometown, we lost our hancocks, so that kind of limits me even more... oh, and the walmart here lost it's fabric section too... BOO!

Hey, lafemme, you make a good point about them stocking up for what they think their customers want, but what I meant was the store's actual buyer -- I'm sure there is a person who is in charge of choosing which fabrics the store stocks. If that Joann is the only game in town, it might be worth it to have a chat with the person who decides what's in the store. Probably couldn't hurt anyway.

I've often goggled at the amount of space taken up in most Joanns just for quilting fabric. Do they really sell THAT MUCH of that?? (Don't get me started on the waste of space for frakkin lawn furniture etc.)

OOOH my goodness! Tell me about it! I know that they're a "craft" store, but honestly, I just can't help but wonder how they can stay in business without having a better selection! I might actually try to get in touch with the store's buyer, but first I think I'll browse the one in my hometown, just to see if they have a better selection.

Thanks for the advice!

Does anyone know of a source to buy material that regular ol' cotton tshirts are made out of?

Usually they are made out of cotton jersey (either single or double jersey is ok).

Hi, everybody,

I just discovered that my machine can handle jersey fabric better than I thought.  Given the number of lovely printed jersey items in retail stores these days, I thought for sure I'd find lots of printed jersey fabric online. No dice.  All I find are swimsuit prints and icky glitter prints.  Anyone have a good online source for jersey fabric in attractive prints?

Many Thanks,
Emily
