Mill End Fabrics
Oh, I almost forgot to mention, Chris, Nancy, Aaron and myself went to Mill End Fabrics in Reno while we were here. The place is kind of amazing. It is a gigantic warehouse in Reno filled with mostly bolt ends of every kind of fabric imaginable. Fabrics are just piled 10 feet high and some are labeled and some are not. They are all super cheap ($12 a yard for silk, which I have only been able to find in LA so far, and almost everything else in the store seems to be $5.40 a yard, including heavy tapestry fabrics). I got a nice supply of silk, some heavy cotton, and some cotton linen for my stash. I highly recommend it if you are anywhere nearby and I can guarantee that the group of us will go back when we come to Tahoe in the future!
