I have registered to take Susan Khalje's couture class in Nashville in May. I would like to make a Chanel jacket if I can find a wool boucle that I like. Susan takes her Nashville students to Textile Fabric Store to shop for fabric. I was there yesterday for their annual 40% off sale but couldn't find a boucle that I really liked. Does anyone know of an online source? I have checked Gorgeous Fabrics, Emma One Sock and a few of the obvious sources but still haven't located it. Any ideas?

Michael's Fabrics

Call Michael or Sherri, they are having a huge sale at their brick and mortar location (A Fabric Place in Baltimore) so they might have better prices than what's list online.

Linton Tweeds in England will send you gorgeous swatches. They produce some of the Chanel tweeds along with many other designersn.

In US, I recommend Michael or Richards in Dallas.

You might want to check the Marcy Tilton site. She has fabulous fabric.

Emma One Sock (http://emmaonesock.com/fabrics/textured.asp) also has some boucles.

Enjoy the class. I hear Susan is an excellent instructor.

In Nashville, there is also a custom clothing studio that sells nice fabrics....next time you are there. I may be having a brain drain on the name .... Think it's Mona Couture....or something similar.

It is upstairs on West End Ave at the loop. In a strip center that used to have a Dairy Queen.

I drive by all the time when home, but my recall is fuzzy.

I have bookmarked all the great suggestions and ordered swatches from Emmaonesock and Apple Annies. I had no idea there was a couture type studio on West End in Nashville. I live only 60 miles from there. I'll call them Monday. Hopefully, I will locate the perfect fabric before my class in May!
