    UA "like" fabric find

    Yesterday I was strolling through my local Amish fabric outlet, looking for suitable fabric for various DIY projects.

    I ran accross several partial bolts of what appeared to be "Under Armour ColdGear" like fabric in an rather obnoxious purple color. It was labeled "Sportswear Fabric, 89% Polyester, 11% Spandex" Price was $1.75 per yard. I'm still kicking myself for not picking some up, but I have no idea what I'd do with it. My thread injector only has a straight stitch.

    Here's the offer.

    Option #1
    If any HF member has experience and interest in this, let me know. I'll go back and try to buy some or all of it. I'll ship it to you for my cost ($1.75/yd + shipping). I also ask that you post photos of your project on HF for others to enjoy.

    Option #2
    I'll pay for the fabric and double your yardage, you pay for the shipping and send me something. Maybe an ugly purple balaclava, base layer bottoms, base layer top, whatever you make with it.

    Any interest?

    I would love to make some buffs with that fabric - but not really in an obnoxious purple color

    I'm gonna try to run down there this afternoon and see if I can grab a few yards. Problem with this place is never knowing what you'll find.

    Oh come on! I'll send you out a couple yards. Just send me back one and offer a couple for free to HF members.

    I could get in on that deal, if SA doesn't bite! KM (who is looking at the thread injector calling from across the house..)

    SA is taking a yard, but send me your address and I'll get you a package on the way Monday.
