Anyone going tomorrow want to pick up their friendly neighborhood Fronkey some fabric? Pm me so I can get in on the deals too.
Hey Fronkey. . . PM Chickenwing tonight. Just spoke with him on the phone, he's out of town right now but headed home and plans to go get some fabric tomorrow. He says he can help you out.

Looks as if we've cleaned out the Phoenix supply of silnylon and bug net. I was there before 11 yesterday and not a scrap was left. There was some ripstop being returned to stock from the cutting area, sorry I missed a chance to chat with whoever was there earlier.
They still have a good assortment of uncoated, calendared, and DWR ripstop, and one roll of heavier black waterproof, probably 1.9 urethane coated. There is also a LOT of assorted cordura and other outdoor type fabrics. They will have more arriving but no way of knowing exactly when or exactly what, so you may want to check before making a long drive.
Bummer. I was heading there tomorrow to look for some Silnylon. Still may go to see what else they have though. It's only 20 min away form me.
I went by Phoenix of Anderson today and they are still out of both. Seems a fellow by the name of Eric did some damage
They told me that they were not doing business with the supply for the time being so it would be a while before more would come in.
That being said, they still had awesome prices on outdoor thread, and had a wide variety of colors and types of ripstop and cordura all for $4.00 a yard. Really the price wouldn't be great but the variety makes it worth the drive for some.

Streamline, thanks for the update! Did they still have the bin with sil/ripstop by the pound? I'm planning a trip up there later this summer to restock my supplies----------hopefully they will have more sil in by then!
FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )
Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either, just leave me alone.
They did, but it was slim pickings and I didn't see any true sil. There was sil coated nylon but it was only on one side and was on the heavy side. They had a good bit of this in white.
