My inlaws are traveling to London this spring, and my mom-in-law asked if I wanted her to pick anything up for me. If Liberty fabric is cheaper over there, I'd love to take the opportunity to have her buy some for me. Does anyone know if it's less expensive when bought it its "native land" rather than imported to the US?

If you look at their website the yardage runs 21 British pounds which is roughly $33 a meter. They sometimes run sales but depending on when she goes.

There is a place called Shaukath that many people have had good results with (they are also across the pond), they are about 8 British pounds cheaper.

Good Luck!

I purchase from shaukat frequently. The tana lawn is usually about 14 pounds and I receive it in about 10 days.
