Anyway, I tracked down a local yarn seller on Etsy. Check out the Yarn Chef. I just ordered my first skein, and I should get it early next week, I think. Also, there is Re! who deals in vintage goods. Ok, maybe these aren't supplies, but they are stunning, nonetheless!

All artists strive for quality in their product. I am just learning that there is much more availability for quality supplies than I had ever realized. Yarn was yarn, and fabric from Jo-Ann was just fine. Painting on luan couldn't get better, could it? Of course it can! There's natural and hand dyed fibers, fabric that will LAST in the garments, and 1/2 inch medium density fiberboard (MDF) is a dream, I tell you, a DREAM to paint on. That and cabinet-grade plywood or solid hardwood. .... I have to stop, I think I'm drooling....
