Do anyone know where I can buy a fabric swatch book online or in-store? Thanks!

You mean just a book to keep swatches in? I use a plastic tech-manual type binder thingy, with spare pages that I swiped out of Kris's yu-gi-oh binder. Like these things: http://www.amazon.com/25-Ultra-Pro-Platinum-Storage/dp/B002XHAOMW

Thanks for your reply, but no not an empty book. I'm looking for one that already has the fabric swatches placed in the book. Similar to the ones interior designers use

How 'bout the "All About" series? They're books with swatches of each type of silk, wool and cotton;



If you're looking for a fabric dictionary, or a swatchbook...

Woa! DH just walked in the door with an amazing find. A custom tailor in our neighborhood just put out a few fabric swatch books from last season that they were getting rid of, for people to just take.

He was a little unsure as he was taking them out of his bag, thinking I'd think they were just useless garbage!

He picked up Elegance, Grelin, Borghi and Tissus Monde Paris. The illustrations and fabric swatches are just beautiful. I can't wait to flip through them. Hopefully, even be inspired....

Els, thanks so much for mentioning these, since I wasn't aware of them. Now I'll be looking for more at the end of this season!
