- Dharma Trading

they wouldn't be the right fabric fit for everyone. They carry a lot of silks and their prices are unbelievably low.
That said, they are mostly whites and a few blacks, primarily used for art dyeing and painting. I get silk scarves from
them for painting at 4 and 5 dollars. I get several different weights of blouse and dress silk for projects and for dyeing,
likewise low. And they have all the silk dyes and paints right there with the fabric. For those who are embroiders, they have a
lot of blanks in cotton and silk, but that isn't, strictly speaking, fabric. And last but not least, their stafff is helpful,
knowledgeable and friendly. Delivery time is good.

Nancy wrote: "Two reasons I like Emma One Sock are (1) the site specifies Pantone numbers, which let me judge colors
without being overly dependent on my monitor settings; (2) it’s possible to order a fabric but have shipping delayed to
consolidate with later orders to save on shipping costs."

I've never had a problem with quality and understand that if I ever did, he works with the customer.

they have a large selection and price is good.
Olwyn Mary wrote: I like Fashion Fabrics club because their site is easy to navigate - they have the description,
width and fabric content right there on the main page, no having to click on the pix to get this info. As I am generally
looking for specific fabrics for a particular garment, I want to know right up front what the fiber is and how wide it is.
I will pay significantly more for 60" fabric than for 45" for certain garments, as I need so much less. Yes, their service
is not fast. Usually takes a week to get here. OTOH, it is usually pretty good fabric, and they cut generously.

textures (though the palette is skewed toward black, gray, and brown)."
