    Ever heard of magna fabrics?

    Just got a thread injector from Santa and looking for some cheap fabric to start on. no walmart close has the fabric dept anymore.


    But I found this site they seem to have ripstop and 1.9 oz DWR at good prices but I am wondering if anyone has ever bought from there. If so any recommendations on what you bought?

    It looks wholesale but I have a business lic.

    Home page is http://www.magnafabrics.com/

    Page talking about ripstop and DWR
    http://www.magnafabrics.com/category/128.htm

    Any help would be great. Thanks,

    We've heard of them. We tried to set up a group buy with them on some silnylon years ago, but they weren't very forthcoming with the necessary info at that time if I remember correctly, so it just faded on into oblivion (almost). Nothing recent that I have seen.

    That place is in northern New Jersey and I head up that way a lot for business (might get up there this Friday). I'll see what they have and report back.

    Can this be correct? It's directly from their website:
    ACU UNIVERSAL CAMOUFLAGE NYLON RIPSTOP 1.9 OUNCE DWR WATERPROOF, 60 INCHES WIDE 79 CENTS TO $1.29 A YARD

    If so, everything I own from now on will be camo.

    How is DWR Waterproof poss??
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    In addition to the weather - snowy in nj - my step-daughter is battling the stomach virus going around so I didn't get up there today. I'm in Arizona next week and the earliest I can get up there will be Wednesday the 19th. I'll report in then. If anyone buys the stuff prior to that, let us know what the deal is with the quality of the fabric.

    I've seen them advertise amazing prices, but I have never heard of anyone actaully buy from them. They have been very unresponsive in the past.

    What Dutch said..
    In my experience (2 phone calls) they were lacking in service. Treated my phone call as a nuisance.
