I'm on my way to Britex....uh, I mean San Francisco, for one last hurrah before school starts back again (and Boy Scout popcorn selling). I've heard about Britex from Sandra Betzina and some other people, and it looks like I need to hit the 4th floor for the sale remnants, but I'd like to check out some knits too. Any other suggestions about maneuvering this intimidating place?
Any suggestions on other fabric stores I should hit, should the family grant me more than an hour to peruse? And sometime we'll have to discuss how you handle yourself in a behemoth fabric store like this. I went to Paron in New York a few years ago on Sheila's suggestion, and I realized I was a novice when it comes to fabric buying. I'm used to my Hancock where I can pick the bolt up and drape myself if I like, but Paron had most things on long rolls with the ends sticking out, so I couldn't really get a good feel. I've seen them yank rolls out on Project Runway, but I was a-skeered to do that myself, being somewhat of a country mouse. How do YOU do it?
