Fabric Clearance Sales

It's that time of year when many of the online fabric sources are trying to reduce their inventory and I felt obligated to help. Somehow, I ended up purchasing 16 different fabrics (36 yards) from and After discounts, the total spent was $142, or approx $4 per yard. Overall, I am pleased with them although a couple of the pieces are flimsier than I would have liked. Here's a photo of the loot with descriptions below.

How is the slub rayon knit? I've had my eye on those, but wondered how thin they are.

Now that is a way to add to your fabric collection! And I know what you mean about the flimsyness of's knits. After a few instances of that, I've shied away from purchasing alot of knits from them!
