The only Des Moines fabric stores I know of are Joann's and Hancock...and neither are too impressive. I would love if someone could show me an online store, though! (Hint: I'm looking for organic bamboo...)

Great thread!

I've actually just started preparing a pair of tapered pants for myself.

this thread is sooooo inspiring...

not sure if this is the proper area to post this, but.... i've become so obsessed with textured fabrics... im having a small wedding and would like a dress made with something similar to a crushed rose petal (?).. or something like this: Anyone know where i can find a similar texture?
