Rena Fade

Fabric and Decoration Sources

Generally the best prices I've found are at Denver Fabrics.

Saetes is local so you can get the fabric the same day. I suggest you call her first; She is now working out of her home. I have been told that she is willing to meet at a convenient location with swatches of her fabrics; I have not confirmed that with her.

Hi Fashion Fabrics in sacramento has a small selection.

Joann's fabrics varies by store and season. Never a large selection, but may have what's desired.

On-line sources include (in alphabetical order)

 

And, of course there's always Ebay, Amazon, and Etsy.

Swatches can be requested from most sites, some will charge for them. Do not try to match fabric colors online; request swatches.

Some fabrics do not need to be stretch fabrics, but most do. Further, the fabric generally must be 4-way stretch sometimes labelled as 2-way stretch. The stretch must also meet the requirements. I will be happy to advise whether a particular fabric is suitable for the intended purpose.

 

Decor Sources

I've found this useful tool at Rhinestones Unlimited. They also carry the Swarovski crystal rhinesontes.

I've dealt with Iron on Designs and was pleased with them.

Saetes carries and extensive supply of glue-on crystals, iron-on and sew-on decorations.

I have yet to purchase from Etsy - Fabric Flowers, but if the product meets your needs and you do, please let me know about your experience.

i.e. Jewelry, Hair items, etc.

A friend of mine makes beaded jewelry - HumanButterfly at Etsy.

Saetes also stocked a wide range of " bling " jewelry and hair items at her store. I do not know if that has changed since she began selling from her home.
