I have thought about that. My experience with fabric stores is that swatches/samples are measured in the square inches rather than square feet. Obviously the more they cut off for samples the more it impacts their stock for sale. I have not contacted the cottage gear vendors here individually as I am hoping they will see this and respond. However, the fact is that as long as the piece is labeled I don't really care where it comes from.
