Help Finding the Right Fabric - Let Us Do the Legwork

Narrowing down to the right fabric can seem daunting.  We've found a convenient way to make it easier. 

By phone or email give us some basic ideas about your project - for example: the colors you have in mind, the colors already in the room, the type of pattern.

Maybe you've bookmarked some examples on the web - send them to us.  Perhaps you are working from a palette (like that to the left) - snap a photo and send it. 

We know our fabric resources and can spin through them making initial selections based upon what we think might be suitable.

If your fabric interests are fairly specific, we will mail samples to you. 

If your fabric ideas are more 'open' or 'exploratory' we can help you follow your muse with a virtual narrowing.

We will email you a link to a file sharing tool with the online fabrics from our vendors that we found that fit what we understand you want to explore.

The link opens in your web browser.  It looks like the picture to the left.  Look for the orange dot and click it.  A slideshow will open.  Use the white arrows to scroll through the pictures.  If you go in one direction, the next time you see orange  - you're done!  The pictures are actually links to fabric pages - so if you want to get a closer look, just click the picture in the slideshow.  Go ahead, try a sample by clicking on the picture to the left.  Ignore the "sign up" banner - it isn't needed.  If the sharing thing doesn't work on your device, let us know and we can send you a flat file list instead.
From this initial list, you may see a few that are more suitable than others.  Or that our idea of 'green' was too green.  Tell us.  With that feedback, we can get very specific with our research and send you a refined list.  From that, you may see several that you are interested to check out further.

This is the cool part.  Let us know what those fabrics are and we will mail physical samples to you.
Of course, we can always bring traditional fabric sample books for you to page through. 

But folks have been telling us this mixture of virtual and actual is very convenient.  The file link is easy to share with others so you can collaborate and gather a consensus without calling a meeting.
