And so .... I know that we have discussed, made suggestions, and such ... but when I search on related topics, not much of relevance is coming up.

Where are you all buying heirloom sewing supplies? Please post your faves.

I have a couple of favorites, but am trying to bookmark more places that carry what we used to be able to find in one place at MP Company.

Ready ... set ... go ...

Lynn, Do you mean fabric? I wouldn't hesitate to use a less expensive 100 % cotton voile or lawn
for heirloom sewing (like for a Christening/dedication gown). I'm working with cotton voile now, using
it for curtains and for the price (less than $4 a yard) I was amazed at the quality. In fact, it's all I
can do to keep myself from pinstitching LOL!!! It even has a slight sheen. This is from a company
called Fabric Wholesale Direct, and I got mine through an ebay offering.

As for lace, entredeaux and a few trims, you can't beat Luc the laceman (cotton lace.com). He has
the lowest prices I've ever seen for cotton lace. I also highly rec. his fine nylon leavers lace.....it's
priced so low I could hardly believe it, and one would need a highly trained eye to tell it isn't cotton
lace. And believe me, I'm a stickler about lace. He's over seas, but ships promptly...about a week
or less to get to Illinois.

I like to order from Farmhouse Fabrics when I want a good selection of quality heirloom fabric or
trim. They are pricey, but overall the quality is good.

I'm glad you started this discussion. I know many have ordered from M.P. Co in the past and are
probably interested to know where others get heirloom supplies. Kathy D. would be one who is
in the know....you might want to email her to see which suppliers she uses. She may not see this
thread.

Any fabrics, laces or related supply sites are welcome Linda.

Yes, Chadwicks and Farmhouse - definitely. I have those bookmarked for sure. I recall discussions from the past about Luc, and I also have that one bookmarked.

I've had mostly good luck with http://www.baltazor.com (only 1 glitch very soon after Katrina hit that was quickly resolved). They have 10 pages of laces, carry a nice color selection of whipstitch piping and mini piping, 6 different types of Batiste, nearly 100 different designer's patterns - including Children's Corner, Petit Poche, Kari Me Away, Sue Pennington and more. They also carry bridal tulle and laces. They have become my go-to. Baltazor's currently has a sale going on, wish I had unlimited resources, but alas, I am saving my pennies and dollars for Sew Expo.

I forgot all about Chadwicks and Baltazor....and for some reason I thought one or both
of them only sells wholesale. So thanks for the info!!! I'll be sure to bookmark them.
It's so nice to have a selection to choose from and sometimes we want to know the fabric
is top quality.

Lynn, as for buying quantity, I'm counting on Heaven having an unlimited supply lol!
If money was no object, I'd be making curtains, sheets and pillowcases out of the finest
batiste ; ). I'm a real nut for fine cotton fabric.

Oh gosh, I almost forgot about Britex Fabrics!! We were in San Francisco and found it by accident!! What an amazing store!!!

https://www.britexfabrics.com/lace-and-trim/heirloom-lace-trim.html

And, Capitol Imports is now a retail store, too--but it looks like you have to call to ask about the price (For Inquiries, Call (850) 385 - 4665, Email: capitolimports@talstar.com):

Britex has rayon bemberg lining!!!!! Some very nice laces. Some of their prices have me in shock though.

PBJK promises a new website March 1st ... a good thing because I find their site just too confusing to navigate, but I'll check back after my return from SewExpo.

I have Elegant Stitches bookmarked.

Capital Imports retail catalog with pricing: http://www.importedlaces.com/index.html

Fine Stitchery has excellent prices...and she's "one of us." And the Classic Sewing magazine features some lovely ads from places I haven't tried. BTW, don't forget to use the 15% off Farmhouse Fabrics coupon in the magazine if you get it.
