Found: Coach Fabric at A.K. Fabrics
If you are a fan of all things Coach, check out this Coach canvas fabric I found today at A.K. Fabrics on W. 39th Street. Heavyweight, it would be perfect for a tote bag. I didn't ask the price, but I'm guessing it falls somewhere in the store's general $6-$12 a yard range.
[Update: Cidell of Miss Celie's Pants just bought the last of this Coach fabric. Ya gotta act fast, people!]
There are also several attractive cotton prints here, though far too many have a Hawaiian or beach theme for my tastes. I did like this print, though:
And A.K. is by far the best option in town for denim of all weights and colors. Have you shopped here yet?

I bought flannel there to make what would become my favorite plaid flannel shirt. Love it -- and very well organized.ReplyDelete
If your goal is to save the garment district one piece at a time, it worked. I just ordered the Coach. And, got the last of it I think.ReplyDelete
Incorrect. I went there and saw a coach fabric (different from what you were showing) and they were asking 30/yard (about 6 months ago). I saw some other coach fabric for 15/yard onlineReplyDelete
