looking for buckram
I am interested in making some handbags and I’m trying to locate a source for buckram. My local fabric store sells it in 4 inch strips but I was interested in perhaps being able to purchase it by the yard. Anybody out there buy or use this product?
Have you tried Google? I'm a Google convert after getting so many addresses from Jean. The other thing to try is look in Threads, maybe a year ago, for the article on purse making. That should have a list of materials and sources. rjf

Call around to neighboring fabric stores. I have always bought it by the yard (usually at least 24" wide). You might try finding a fabric store with a good home-dec department.
By the way, if you heat it up with an iron it becomes temporarily easier to work with.
