Extra wide fabric sources
I had great success with making custom sheets per the article by Pamela Burke in the latest threads – #100. She lists in there 3 sources for extra wide fabric. Does anyone know of any others? In particular does anyone know about sources for extra wide cotten flannel?
Yvonne, I have a couple of others, but am not sure whether they're current. It's worth a try. I haven't seen super-wide flannel, though. In fact, some very expensive English flannel king size sheets that I bought had a seam on each side of the flat sheet to make it wide enough.

Dharma trading - dharmatrading.com also sells exta wide flannel. (they are good guys)
The Quilters Shop (www.quiltershop.com) has 90 inch cotton flannel for sale.
I recently bought 120 in. muslin at Joann's--not something I'd make sheets out of, necessarily, but it'll be great for quick, inexpensive curtains.
