    Olive 1.9 Help!

    Ok, gang, I've looked and searched and cussed and gotten frustrated in general. I need your help, if you can. I need a good source for ripstop 1.9 (Or even 2.2) in olive green. I'm going to need about 8 yards or so for what I have planned, but can't find any olive thru the usual suppliers. Does anyone here have any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    Have you tried contacting Blackbishop351? He might have some. Otherwise, I have no idea.

    Yup, all he's got is 1.1. That bites. The folks at Magna Fabrics have it, but when I e-mailed them that I only wanted about 10 yards, they didn't contact me back, I'm guessing since they sell MUCH larger volumes. Oh well. Maybe I should look at alternate colors besides olive. Bummer.

    Good idea, wish I'd thought of it. Is anyone else interested in a group buy of olive 1.9? Is a poll in order?

    I think it's uncoated, but not positive. If I remember correctly, he quoted a price of $0.50/yd. At that price, I'd be willing to go in on a lot more than 10 yards. Probably closer to 50 or so.

    well, i dont know, im about to order 3 yards of speer's brown, the color grew on me. if you can organize a group buy, and the price is $0.50/yd, in in for at least $10, it would be hard to use more. but if there was sil, count me in for a lot.
