I have ordered from Tonicliving.com
Seeking ethnic fabrics like those seen in Anthropologie, World Market curtains, and not $30/yd....
Looking for large prints of birds, floral, calligraphy, etc. seen in decor pillows, suitable for framing, applique, and altered art projects.

Did you try IKEA? Sometimes they have Marimekko prints there.

I used to get it at Crate & Barrel; the local store quit carrying it but I was still able to get some at their outlet. That might have been 10 years ago, though.

The Crate and Barrel Outlet still had fabric last year. Sometimes Tuesday Morning will get a shipment of better quality bed linens with very good designs. Also designer pillow cases and pillow shams, on sale, of course.

Yes, for those who haven't tried it, we have a newly-moved Tuesday Morning where I found great German scissors, buttons packed 3-5 cards for less than the price of one, Ott lites less than JA's, craft closeouts like scrapbooking and beads. I got a great Heather Bailey Weekend Sewing book with many patterns for $10, retail $28.

Mgr. says they get whatever, they never know, so keep checking. I had to show hubby the difference in prices between 800-count sheets and 250-count, of course with men it's comparing it to pricey tools so they'll understand.

For Altered Art, I just discovered that the Somerset Studio series has a book called Sewing Somerset Studio, with lots of ideas for fabric crafting. Look for it in JA's, use your 50% off coupon.
