    Re: fabric widths

    In my experience there is not much furnishing fabric in this country wider than about 140cm....I have come across a few by Villa Nova that are double width, and even found one or two in Fabric Warehouse (by accident). Curtain manufacturers seem to be able to get hold of it though, lots of readymades don't have seams in their wide panels.

    For some reason double width fabric is much more common in Europe (certainly France and Spain). I know of one shop [urlnew:1db8ptaw][/urlnew:1db8ptaw] in Plymouth that stocks it but would be interested to hear if anyone knows of any other suppliers.
