Hello fellow BC craftster's. I have been searching for some purple jersey fabric for a dress. So far I have been to Fabric Land and Fabricana in Coquitlam, and they don'y have any purple jersey. I don't really care about the shade, and wouldn't mind other colours besides bright turquise or red (the only colours I seem to be finding. Really, blue looks fine on me as well as purple.

I don't really know of many fabric stores besides those two and Dressew, so that's why I'm asking. Anything in down town Vancouver or close to a sky train would be helpful.

Thanks a lot!

Try Dressew
337 Hastings Street West, Vancouver, BC V6B 1H6

It's big, so you may be able to find what you want. Check out other things too, sometimes they have very good deals.

Hey Kator, numerous times I've heard my teacher talk about textile warehouse where we get our stuff for the shows. I've never been so I don't know whats there, but some great words such as "textiles" and "warehouse" are in the title so it may be a chance. It's at 33rd and Fraser, so it's quite the haul. Also if you really can't find anything, maybe phone up a dancewear manufacturerer and ask where they get their material.

it's called textile clearance house, and it's at 41st and fraser (well, between 40th and 41st, across from the graveyard). it's actually not that hard to get to by bus, if you take skytrain, get off at joyce, catch the 41st bus and get off at fraser and walk half a block. i used to live a few blocks away, and joyce was definitely the easiest skytrain to get to from there. they're actually fabricland (though they're not supposed to tell you that), so sometimes you can find the exact same stock as what fabricland has, but at half the price.

that being said, i'm never really happy with their jersey selection. sometimes they have some, and sometimes they have none at all. i have found fabulous jersey there on occasion though. and they do have a lot of knits in general, i'm not sure if you're looking for actual jersey, or just a purple knit fabric.

there are also a few small fabric stores further up fraser, if you're gonna go out there anyway. rocco's is around 45th and fraser, and i haven't been there since they enlarged the store, but they always had really fun fabrics, so they probably have even more now!

oooh, that sounds like a plan! I'm really looking for the knit fabric they call jersey. Fabricland and Fabricana have such a small selection. Ori, we must go!! If you're busy this weekend it will have to be in April, but it sounds like fun!!!

I bet if you hit Fraser in the Indian market area...you'll find something.

I will look at Fabricland on Marine when I go this week and let you know Smiley

No, I was merely reading the Muggle magazines. I do love knitting patterns.

wal mart doesn't usually deal in knits. sometimes u can find nice ones, but not at any cheaper than it would be somewhere else.
