Does your quilt shop stock it?

In winter I wear a LOT of fleece garments (it's cold here). Fleece pullovers, pants, jackets, mittens and hats.
Yesterday I went to my favorite quilt shop that (by MT standards) is huge! But they don't stock any fleece.
They say that they can't compete with JoAnn's for the price.
But, I say, JoAnn's stuff is awfully poor quality; there have been many complaints that their fleece (made in China) overwhelmingly stinks of chemicals and the odor cannot be washed out. Not only that, JoAnn's selections is just so-so.
That leaves me with ordering it online where color-matching is a crap-shoot.
Color me disappointed.

A lot of people are afraid of heights. Not me, I'm afraid of widths.

It's hard to beat real Polartec for quality, and if you order from either or, you will get the genuine article. For a very small charge, they will send you samples, and you'll know exactly the type and color of the fleece you order.
