My favorite fabric store in all of Alabama is closing - Fabric Jungle in Irondale. It's exclusively upholstery/curtain fabric, not make-a-dress fabric. They've always been a little on the expensive side, and they absolutely do not take anything other than cash and checks... Oh, but they have the *best* employees who really-really do want to help and know what they are talking about. And the fabrics are excellent quality. They don't carry ultra-high-end like Brunschwig & Fils (you need a designer to purchase that anyway) - but really, very fine.
BTW, some designers are selling their overages of B&F, Scalamandre, and other $150+/yd fabric on eBay!
Anyway...I was told when I visited last week that Fabric Jungle is closing in mid-March. They have already started enforcing a minimum cut of five yards.
I think I'm going to go once a week from now until they close just so I can visit all that fabulous toile... Stocking up to make more headboard covers, too!
