looking for good fabric

cberonich | Posted in Fabric and Trim on

I live in the Midwest within resonable distance to three metropolitan areas. I’m looking for high-quality fabric that I can buy to make clothing that will last. All I have in the immediate area is the big chain stores chock full of cheap fleece and quilting fabric.  I can’t even find much on the Internet anymore. Does anyone know of a website or an independent shop in Minneapolis or Kansas City?

Thanks for you help!

    I know this is an old topic, but I just started looking at the forums and decided to chime in. 

    I've always shopped at Exquisite Fabrics, in their former DC store and now in their Virginia store.  They have a website now so  you can order online.  They've been doing mail order since the stone age and they still do, because many of their customers live in DC for a short time and then move back to their hometowns or even abroad.  Exquisite is known for top quality and for natural fiber fabrics.
