Fabric & Screen

Yesterday, I went to shopping for more fabrics.
There is a huge fabric warehouse in north side of Chicago where I buy all my fabrics. Surrounding by thousands of bolt fabrics makes me excited!
I bought 2 bolts of 100% imported linen. I will wash them to get lid of sizing to be ready for printing.
Today, I went to get my new meshed screens! I cant wait to use them.
If you live in Chicago area and need silkscreen supply Chicago silkscreen is the place to go. You can get screens and supply with reasonable price, way cheaper than regular art supply stores, and people there are so friendly and helpful.

I found your store from rarebirdfinds. Beautiful! I'm moving to the north side of Chicago in a week, so I'll definitely need to buy some towels for my new kitchen!

Can you share the location of the fabric warehouse? I need to find some good fabric/art stores!

Good luck!
