William Morris, Where ARE You?
Well, for one who claims she does not buy fabric without a specific project in mind, we are up against an exception. Jan wrote about a trip to this shop where she bought some of this wonderful William Morris fabric. The drooling, the hyperventilating began almost immediately. If Blogger is working properly, you should be able to enlarge the print by clicking on it; then you will see what I mean. It is downright gorgeous.

If you have read this blog for a while, you may have gathered that I have a serious weakness for Will's (we're that well acquainted) designs. It is the one fabric (well, if you don't count the batiks) that I buy with absolutely no plan in mind. I keep the yardage, the FQs, the scraps, in a cupboard and from time to time take them out, fondle them, arrange them, and put them back.
. . . .
Occasionally I'll make a large project or or a small one out of them but that, of course, diminishes the quantity. And I get some peculiar sense of security out of having a quantity of William Morris. I need to get some of this new line. I need this very badly. But going to the shop on line doesn't help me -- apparently they do not have a way to order on line. Googling, and prowling around the Freedom Fabrics site hasn't helped; the best I came up with was a long list of shops that may or may not have this particular line.
. . . .
So here I find myself in the humiliating position of inquiring: Does anyone know of a shop in her area that has an on-line sales component and carries this line? Or a plain old on-line source for Morris Springtime? Any help for a desperate quilter?
