Need Fabric Help

Post by JenKozy » Fri Jul 09, 2010 3:23 pm

Hey guys.

I am working on some "props" for our field show, and am trying to find bulk, black mesh stretch fabric (hope you know what I am talking about).

Do you have a company you always use for your fabric needs? I usually can find what I am looking for with my usual company, but they currently don't have what I am looking for in stock.

Any help would be great! Thanks in advance!
I am NOT too old for this!

Hi Jen,

Try JoAnn's of Hancocks. I usually try a local shop first for fabric when it's not for flags. Both will do a special order.

Also try your local theater outlet for black scrim.

Jenkozy, My suggestion is to try a swap meet. they have bulk fabric and very resonable. call me cheap, but it works.

There's an AWESOME, really cheap fabric store down in San Jose that has pretty much everything you could ever want. It's called Fabrics R Us and it's amazing.
