Hi, I am a beginner. One project I want to do is patchwork an old wing back chair with coordinating fabric pieces. The current fabric is torn up from the kitty and age, but the chair is just how I like it, and I think piecework, with some navy blue velvet thrown in will look interesting.

I did buy a kravet couture sample on eBay and love it, but the price was almost 15.00 for a small 8 square in piece.

What other high end makers would I like in a similar vein as kravet couture, and where is the best place online price wise, and shipping, to buy from for these small pieces? Thanks, robin

You could try Fabric Guru --- they have close outs drapery and upholstery fabric by the yard. Good luck.

There is a place in the San Francisco area that gives these away for a donation. Fabmo is the name of the organization. I don't know if they would ship, or if you could get to their location, but it is a great group. They go to the design center and get them from companies that are otherwise just going to through them away.
