Thanks for the info, loved the Cotton Clous site, will be using them in future, will check out those others later on. Our W-M now has only about 10 solid colors and not even the Christmas red and green.
I am already planning to do the 100-mile round trip next week to go to Minnesota Fabrics, Hobby Lobby, and Target, but I'm going to call first to make sure they have what i want in stock. If they don't then there's another city, about the same distance, where I can go to Hobby Lobby, JoAnn, Michael's, AC Moore, and some other stores all within the space of a few miles. So we shall see.
