    Hello,

    I am very new to sewing and I was just given some Thimbleberries flannel Fabric from the Evergreen Inn collection.

    I was wondering if anyone knows of a source where I could purchase more of this fabric. I realize it is dated (2004) but thought I would ask before venturing to find another type of fabric to use for the backing of the quilt.

    I would sure appreciate any advice! :)
    Thank you!

    Thank you Chixarecute and Tinker for your time. I had already spent a good couple of hours checking out e-bay, etsy and some of those sites. I wasn't sure if anyone knew of a source for discontinued fabric.

    I appreciate your help :)

    You can go on a site called "Missing Fabrics" and ask. You can post a picture of the fabric and ask if anyone has it in their stash or know where you can get it. I have helped a couple of people with fabric they were looking for...had it in my stash.

    Thimbleberries fabric and pattern are part of what made me want to quilt so badly years ago! I remember buying one of her books and being determined that I was going to make something from it..............then I realized it was way above my skill level! I need to find that book and try something from it now!
