The elusive fabric

This is the postage fabric I'm trying to find:
https://www.amazon.com/Timeless-Treasures-Stamps-Stamp-Fabric/dp/B01MV7YGDX/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1498865721&sr=8-1&keywords=timeless+treasures+fabric+stamps

I only need a half yard, which barely makes it worth it to purchase and ship. I've checked the 4 local stores and no luck. If all else fails, maybe the quilt festival...

It's always annoying when you can find what you want, but at a price that makes it slightly out of reach. Good luck!

I know! This isn't too bad for the fabric - $10/yard - but by the time I pay shipping on a half yard... and I don't need a full yard.

Spoonflower is the worst for that. I had a pattern that I wanted to make with medical fabrics, and they had a wonderful selection, but I only needed a fat quarter of each, and the cost of FQ on Spoonflower was nearly the same as for a yard. But I don't want or need a whole yard! I had to scrap that plan.

Shipping always seems to be where they get you. I can understand them needing to cover cost, but there are times.

What? That's just jacked. I hope you can find something at the show.

Most of the time shipping is a joke - it doesn't actually cost that much for a container and postage - but yeah, they make it up there as "handling fees". (Herrscher's was hideous about this, they based shipping not on weight but on $ order size, and it was nasty, nasty.)

Spoonflower's fabrics are semi proprietary but at least at the show there are 100s (maybe 1000+?) vendors there and I'll have almost 3 days to look.

...OTOH I found someone with a half yard on Etsy for $5, shipping is about the same... it's really about the same cost, but there's the advantage of being able to get JUST a half yard. I'll have to think about that.

Wow, that's just wrong, but they must get away with it to still be in business.

Good luck with both the show and maybe getting some clothes. Fingers are crossed.
