Beyond Checks & Cherries...BRINGING OILCLOTH IN TO THE 21ST CENTURY

Today, Rook No. 17 compadre Ahnalisa M. (a fantastic artist and all around cool chica) asked if we had any leads on sources for oilcloth with modern prints. Most of what's out there tends to be the same old checkers, fruit and other things often sported by the cast of Hee Haw. Well Ahna, here are some alternatives

Check out Mendel's Far Out Fabrics (http://www.mendels.com/). Of course they have the standards, but check out the print called "San Miguel", my Frida lovin' friend.

Fabricworm on Etsy has some great Japanese imports http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5973558, search under "oilcloth"

R&R Mexico Supply on Etsy has some great Mexican imports: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=7073924&section_id=6018357
