Well, it's not in you geographic area, but if you are ever in CT check out
Affordable Fabrics.  They sell manufacturers' surplus  fabrics and have a
constantly changing,  very mixed selection.  It can vary wildly from black
velveteen to tie silk to pink poly-cotton with smiling condoms printed on
it (where do you think Edwin got that tunic?) but _everything_ in the store
is $1.99/yard.  (Or was last time I was up there).

Oh, I think I'm homesick....


PS For locations, ask just about any SCAdian in Beyond the Mountain or
Dragonship Haven!  They know us...  (in CT no sales tax on cloth for
clothing, but taxes on drape and curtain materials:  "No really, it's for a
dress...yes, I  _do_  use all 10 yards to make my dress!")
