Yea Mitchell Fabric!
I guess you can say that Mitchell Fabrics is Winnipeg version of a Fashion District. It is a 22 000 square feet of sewer's heaven.
Anyway, Mitchell Fabrics came through with 20 metres of fabric.
Now the catch, the fabric is not a colour match to the fabric sample I picked up weeks ago.
