has reached an all-time high.
The swatches I ordered from 800Fabrics.com of a supposed "cotton" velvet for my gent's frockcoat, turned out to be nasty polyester bits of crap not even my grandmother would have used on her couch in 1974.
*sigh* back to the drawing board.
A word of warning; if you ever order from the above supplier, or anywhere you don't already trust to have natural fiber fabrics, order swatches.
I'm glad I did.
