Hancock has failed me. I would say I am upset, but I don’t really get upset over small things. The fabric I originally found for my table runners (DIY) is something that Hancock fabrics “just gets in.” You can’t order it, you can’t search for it. I’d spent weeks trying to find “poly misc polyester” in the same color/finish as the original piece. Then someone at my local Hancocks finally told me that all the materials in the back were “value fabrics.” Sometimes they get some once, sometimes there is a lot, and sometimes they never see it again. ??!!!???!!!????!!!?? about sums up how I felt at that moment. So I cut my losses and moved on, looking for a similar fabric, and guess what, the following two I found and liked were also non-orderable even though they are NOT value fabrics! Sheesh Hancocks, what is the point in shopping at your store/online if I can’t get 22 yards of the same fabric!
I guess my point is, be careful DIY brides, apparently you need to check online and with your store (who checks their wearhouse) before you commit to materials!
Anybody have suggestions for good online fabric outlets? I REALLY need to touch and see fabric before I buy, but we only have Hancock and Joann in town, so limited choices. Anybody know where I can get cream/sand colored slubbed silk suiting shot through with silver thread? 🙂
