Name: Billie's Hoops &Things
Catalog(s): price list
Address: 1605 N. Commerce St., Stockton, CA 95204
Phone Number: (209) 948-0970
Comments: I saw a lap quilting hoop at our recent quilt show that I liked very much but haven't yet had a chance to buy. It was a 16" hoop hinged at two sides to 4-6" legs(!?) that extended downward to an oval platform that rests on your lap. The bottom (Lap side) of the platform was covered with felt to prevent it slipping off your lap. This also came with an inter- changeable oval hoop for border quilting. At the low, low price of about $59.95 (other sizes are available). Billie &Herman have been married 57 years and work out of their home (Herman says they live in their shop). They are such nice folks! You'll love the hoop &love doing business with Billie &Herman.

Address: Village Common, 2019 Miller Rd., East Petersburg, PA 17520-1624
Comments: When I was at Lancaster, I saw the vendor whose chocolate quilt was on tv (someone mentioned it here last week). They will mail order their chocolate quilt squares (only from October to May). The squares were lovely to look at (made with colored choc.) - I didn't buy/eat one so can't vouch for the quality. They make three different 6" square designs, Nine Patch, Fan, and Lemoyne Star, in peanut flavor, chocolate, or vanilla.

Name: Connecting Threads
Address: 5750 N.E. Hassalo, Portland, OR 97213
Comments: I don't normally like being put on mailing lists and receiving junk mail, however, a few days ago I received a new catalog called Connecting Threads. 90% of this catalog is descriptions of quilt books you can order from them. They are all discounted and the nice thing about this catalog is that is has color photos from each book.

Name: Exotic Silks
Address: 1959 Leghorn Street, Mountain View, CA 94043
Phone Number: 800-845-SILK FAX (415)965-07
Comments: They are currently offering ON SALE Raw Silk Noil, 45" wide for $2.05 per yard. Stipulations are that you must buy 15-17 yards per fabric. They require a $100 minimum per order. If you put together an order with friends that $100 minimum is no problem. They also have sandwashed silk Habotai, 12mm for $6.50 per yard and a heavier weight sandwashed silk habo- tai (16mm) for $8.80 per yard. The mm is the "mummyweight". The lower the mm, the thinner the silk. The best way to explore their offerings is to order some basic samples of the undyed silks. That way you can feel the difference before you order. ALL SILKS ARE WASHABLE by hand or gentle machine. They also offer already made undyed silk tank tops, blouses, scarves neckties and other clothing, all for great prices.
Name: Gutcheon Patchworks, Inc.
Address: 917 Pacific Ave., Suite 305, Tacoma, WA 98402
Phone Number: 206-383-3047, FAX 206-627-1399 Comments: The colors are shades of dark red, blue green, mint green, pink and violet. Often the colors are dark but softened by a bit of white, so that the whole range appears a bit muted. The muted violets are not the same in each fabric, but they all go together. (My 83 Gutcheon fabrics look so good together that I've decided to do a Gutcheon scrap quilt.) The de- signs are unusual: one has lines of elephants, camels, and trees, but so abstract that they seem more like art deco stripes. Another is from Rus- sian revolution prints of the late '20s and '30s. Lots are florals and paisleys but definitely different from the ordinary. They have a mail or- der club, but I asked for their packet of samples. Cost is $7.49 per yard; their solids are cheaper and go well with the prints. The samples are very stingy: pinked pieces about 1 1/2" square, which do not always show the design well. There were some surprises when the fabrics arrived but no disappointments. The actual pieces of fabric were very generous, most half yard pieces being 19-21" after washing. The people are very friendly and trusting: when I sent my order I forgot to include my credit card number, and they sent the order out to me IN AUSTRALIA with a letter asking me to fax or phone the credit card number to them when the package arrived.

Phone Number: 1-800-462-3891
Comments: This is an excellent source for ethnic fabrics: wax batiks, African prints, Liberty of Londons, Japanese fabrics, etc.! They have a slick color catalog and also show a range of clothing patterns which are suitable for the fabrics.
Comments: They have material from America, Italy, Liberty of London, Africa, Dutch Java, Japan. They have books too. Some of it is expensive, but I always go for the expensive stuff!

Name: Jennifer's Fabric by Mail
Address: 53 Yorkshire Rd, Lexington, Ohio 44904
Phone Number: (419) 884-3328
Frequency/Cost: $3.50 (free with order)
Shipping Cost: $3.50 per order UPS
Comments: A home business, pretty new. She does two unique things in her catalog - she mentions which fabrics will coordinate, and she says how stretchy the fabric is. The interlocks are usually in the $6.50-$8/yd range, with a few for $3-$4/yd, [with] matching ribbing for most of them. She also has some striped interlocks. They carry Kwik Sew patterns, some sewing books, and no notions (so far).
Comments: I have to say that I'm just a little bit disappointed. Don't get me wrong, the fabric itself is beautiful, and obviously of excellent quali- ty, IT'S JUST THE COLORS THAT ARE TERRIBLE! All these blues, pinks, mauves, burgundy, different shades of purple, and bright red for gosh sakes! (Summer, Winter) YUK! And red clashes with my carrot-orange hair! Nobody in my family will wear a garment made of this stuff. They have strong color preferences. Where are the warm colors (Spring, Autumn)? I want some nice chocolate brown, camel, rust, peach, gold, olive, turquoise, etc. And geometric prints. No florals. I hate florals. Where can I get some good geometric prints?! Stripes are nice, but geometric prints are even higher on my scale of wonderful stuff.
Comments: Jennifer's currently is still kinda small (but growing) ...
Name: Katie's Collection
Address: 230 Rancho Alegre, Santa Fe, New Mexico 87505
Phone Number: (505) 471-2899
Comments: Katie Pasquini-Masopust has a business that does mail order of hand-silk-screened fabrics, books and supplies. Chances are she sells the isometric paper mail order, since it's the designs from her book that everyone needs it for.

Phone Number: 603-253-8731
Fax Number: 603-253-8346
Comments: Great stuff, books, notions, patterns, FABRIC!!!, color pictures of some fabrics, medley (solid or print) of the month. Definitely a touch of heaven for those in need)
Comments: Keepsake is fast and accurate; the one time I needed to return something, the attitude was pleasant and helpful. When I place orders for quilting stuff, they go to Keepsake.
Comments:I've ordered from Quilts &other comforts and haven't had any problems. I also order from Keepsake. I prefer Keepsake only because the sales people are so friendly. Both seem to send out my order very quickly. The one time that I was missing an item from Keepsake it was sent out the next day. They didn't ask a question or give the impression that I was trying to pull a fast one on them.
Name: Key West Hand Print Fashions
Catalog(s): clothing with fabric
Address: 201 Simonton Street, Key West, FL
Phone Number: 305-292-8951, 800-866-0333 (info), 800-444-1462 (order); FAX 305-292-8965
Comments: tropical prints unlike anything you can get elsewhere -- clear medium-value solids with translucent-to-opaque white printed on them. most of the motifs are seashore stuff (shells, fish, starfish, etc). most fab- ric is cotton/polyester. Does not sell any 100% cotton yardage.
Comments: Key West Fabrics came to my attention through a tiny blurb in the now defunct Countryside magazine. My husband called for me and I subse- quently received a packet of 11 6x8 swatches of seashell prints (I'm the Alabama Seashell Freak). The swatches are beautiful, but the material is too pricy for me.
Comments: catalog shows clothing only, but they said (over the phone) that any fabric used in the clothing can be ordered as yardage as well. Watch this space: I'll be getting order info one of these days. Some 100% cotton in attractive prints.
Name: The Lena-Claire Company
Catalog(s): large SASE (with 52 cents postage)
Address: Box 1073, Gracie Station, New York, NY 10028-0007

Name: Liberty Mail Order
Address:Fabric Department, Regent Street, LONDON W1R 6AH
Phone number: 071-734-1234 ext. 2244/2357. Comments: They may have a fax no. but it doesn't say it in their brochure. Catalogues are 2 pounds and you get that back on your first order. They will send any patterns of Tana Lawn, plain lawn, and Varuna wool. Overseas customers don't have to pay VAT. They take Visa, Mastercard and Amex. Being British (and lovely) the stuff is expensive but I in general think what I can afford is worth it!

Comments: oodles of wonderful notions at discount, with reasonable shipping charges, and the *best* customer service I've ever dealt with.
Comments: a valuable catalog. They offer discounts for large orders (great for groups that want to put their orders together.) Extensive selection of sewing and quilting notions. Some prices better than Clothide.
Comments: very good to deal with as they are so quick to respond and fill orders. I have always had very positive experiences with them, and they also have a very good' catalog, lots of useful items.
Comments: Lots of quilt related supplies at excellent prices, plus a com- plete selection of general sewing supplies. As a regular customer you get discount offers in the mail that eliminate shipping costs or offer addi- tional savings. This is Nancy of "Sewing with Nancy" fame on PBS or cable TV. The time-saving tricks and gadgets she shows are in the catalog.
Comments: it carries lots of useful sewing notions such as walking feet, needles, etc, that can be hard to find in stores. I recommend it highly.
Comments: they carry a variety of notions and seem to offer good discounts. You can get wonder thread for applique, rulers, rotary cutters, mats, sew- ing machine feet, ironing aids, etc. They also carry lingerie fabrics and elastics and supplies for heirloom sewing. I've only mail ordered from them with good results.

Address: 126 E. Main St., Bozeman, MT 59714
Phone Number: 406-587-2112
Comments: Yesterday I received a shipment of samples that I had ordered from Patchworks in Bozeman, Montana. Included in it was a flier that explained about authentic reproductions of flour sacks from Montana's flour mills. Ass sacks are preshrunk muslin 22" x 24", $8.00 each. I have some fabric from Patchworks and it is good quality.
Comments: They have reproduction fabrics from pre-1890's to the present. I've been to the store several times and they are a very reputable company. They have sample packets of several different fabric eras. There is a *small* mail order catalog available.
Service: fabric dyes and stamps

Phone Number: (408) 425-4743
Comments: Pelle's sells see-through stamps for fabric stamping as well as dyes for stamping on fabric. They also have a catalog. I have a couple of sheets here from them with instructions on how to use their stamps/dyes and their special package deals. They also will make a stamp of any design that you send them. I don't know of anyone that's tried this, but it seems like a cute idea.
Name: Philips-Boyne Corporation
Address: 1646 New Highway, Farmingdale, NY 11735
Phone Number: (516) 755-1230
Comments: Their specialty is shirting material of any kind imaginable. The prices are incredibly affordable. All of the material is available through mail order. Otherwise, an appointment is necessary. I picked up some won- derful 100% cotton batiste, 45" wide, for $2.95/yd. There are other weights available.... I found some wonderful tone on tone loosely woven white damask ... The Quilting Bee here offered something similar for over double the price.

Frequency/Cost: $2.00 for first catalog

Comments: The new machine quilting book was $14.00 (plus $1.00 S&H) and the Machine Applique book was also $14.00. These books go for $20.00 at most other places.... It is strictly mail order ... Once you order from them, they continue to send updated catalogs. I have no affiliation with them, just a satisfied customer.
Comments: I think to save on costs they also accept only checks or money order.... Since learning about this place, I just wait for any quilt book to appear on their list and order it from them. I received my order via UPS within a week.
Name: The Quilt Cottage
Address: 801 Nashville Ave., New Orleans, LA
Phone Number: 800-453-6998
Comments: The Quilt Cottage has an amazing stock for a small shop. The gals who own it are sharp--one has published a book on fan quilts. They also have a mail order 800 number and their classes look terrific. Specialize in quilting, especially machine quilting, but also have a big selection of fabrics and trims for smocking and hand sewing. I received the new flyer yesterday and they advertise their own lucite templates. I loved visiting there when I went to see my mom. Their mailing list is great to be on and they have a special system of perks to frequent customers.

Phone Number: 909-278-1249
Comments: Isometric paper is called "Grafix Paper". Equilateral triangle grid for use with pencil, pen and fine tip marks. All Grafix Paper Grids are proportionately scaled to the same measurements, so they can be used together to creat new designs. They also had 2 other types of graph paper but I don't remember what they were. It comes in a tablet of 8 1/2 by 11" sheets. It cost me $4.75 for about 100 (?) pieces.

Fax Number: 303-420-7358
Comments: books, kits, patterns, fabric, color catalogue
Comments: Although Q&OC has lots of lovely things in their catalogs, I've found their response time to be equivalent to molasses in January in the Alaskan tundra.... Because of this and a rather surly response from Q&OC when I wanted to return something they had sent in error, I no longer do business with them.
Comments: A couple of days ago I asked people for their opinions of Quilts and Other Comforts. I thought I had heard negative things in the past and wanted to be sure their service was satisfactory before sending them lots of money.
Turns out that most people were pleased with Q&OC, although some said they would never order from them again. The single biggest complaint was the speed (or lack thereof) with which the orders are filled. Backordered items sometimes took months to arrive, and even things sent promptly were sent to the wrong address. However, the company changed hands fairly recently, so maybe everything has smoothed out by now.
Name: Quiltwork Patches

Comments: lists a Tony Wenzel Prints sampler of 20 different prints. Tony Wenzel is an Australian designer who has produced a number of mostly floral fabrics at various scales over the past several years, notably a series of Australian wildflower in several colorways. Other samplers listed and il- lustrated are: RJR prints, English lawn prints ('nearly as nice as Liber- ties but a less than half the price'), Robert Kaufman prints, Hoffman prints, conversation prints, Pilgrim Roy prints, Logantex prints, Momen House prints, Japanese prints, Batiks and Handpaints prints sampler, and others. a satisfied customer for the past several years. Of all the mail orders I do I like them best for variety, friendliness and fast service.

Comments: they offer a collection of 10 patterns, some of which are very un- usual. They look like they are designed to take you step by step through the design process (i.e. you can make them any way you like OR you can fol- low their design ideas). They claim to be full size patterns, petite through extra large. "interesting clothing to sew and create". They cost, on average $4 each for a multi-size pattern. You can request a pattern leaflet from them at the above address.

Comments: These folks have a retail store in addition to their mail order business. They have a regular line of Cotton Club interlock and French Terry (100% Cotton) with matching ribbing.

Please mention me (Grace Sylvan, Lewiston Drive, San Jose, CA) if you decide to subscribe to the swatching service (... I get a small credit ...

They also carry the _Easy Sewing_ book series, and other pamphlets and patterns.... their prices are fair (for the quality of fabric), and they carry a large selection of cotton fabrics that I often haven't seen in my local stores, along with some poly cottons.
Comments: [also carries] Supplex
Name: Taylor's Cutaways and Stuff
Address: 2802 East Washington St, Urbana, IL 61801
Comments: I believe someone was recently asking about sources for fabric by the pound. I have purchased from [Taylor's]. They appear to have the scraps from after cutting clothing, etc. I have a very very old catalog, but their scraps are divided into different sizes (e.g. "pieces" vs. "remnants" which are >= 1/4 yd). This catalog lists: satin, craft velvet, craft fur, felt, cotton and cotton blends, knit, velour fleece, tricot, silk. They also carry buttons, laces and some general craftsy stuff.

Comments: publisher of some of the best books around; kits too
Comments: They list not-yet-published books in their catalog, but don't la- bel all of them as such. This is an issue because they don't charge extra shipping to send backordered books, but do charge extra shipping to send books ordered before they are published. Their order filling isn't too ac- curate, either: in my 1st order, I ordered 4 books, refraining from order- ing a 5th because it wasn't published yet. Of the 4, one was out of stock, one hadn't been published yet (therefore I'm going to get socked by a 2nd shipping charge), one book I ordered they sent, and one I didn't order they sent. So I pay the P.O. a 3rd shipping charge to return the wrong book, and I'll find out if I pay a 4th one for them to send me the book I did or- der (assuming it has been published and is still in stock). Their catalog says that we can find their books at quilt and book stores; if my experi- ence is typical, I'd recommend that we do that instead of ordering straight from them. Rather disappointing.
Name: The Thread Shed
Catalog(s): 100% cotton thread
Address: P. O. Box 898, Horse Shoe, NC 28742-0898
Comments: I just sent them an order for 10 cones of thread in all ranges of colors. Prices are $10.00 for a 6000 yard cone (in limited colors), and $4.00 for 2000 yard cones in over 100 different colors (but do YOU know the difference between Hunter Green and Ranger Green?). If you send fabric swatches, they will color match for you so you don't have to guess.
Name: Thumbelina Needlework Shop
Catalog(s): Danish cross-stitch, Danish flower thread
Address: Copenhagen Dr., Solvang, CA
Comments: You might want to call because they have a couple of mail order catalogs -- one Eva Rosenstand and a supply catalog.

They have an enormous inventory of imported charts and kits and will cheer- fully order anything especially for you that they do not have in stock.
