Silk (was: Re: Really Cheap Fabric....)

Poster: "Joyce A. Baldwin" <jocetta@ibm.net>

A good place to get silk is mail order from Thai Silks in Los Altos, CA
(Phone #  (800) 722-SILK ).   Brochure is free, they will send swatches on
request;  there's technically a charge for that but unless you're asking
for a whole bunch, they don't usually  bother.  Mulberry Silks actually
gets a good many of their silks from them, so you skip the markup.  They're
not actually cheap, but for silk, really quite reasonable.

Sveva mentioned another mail order silk place but I have blanked on the
name.  Sveva?  Are you there?
