I believe the term was designed just for me. I love internet shopping for fabric. I love brick and mortar shopping for fabric. I always stop for a fabric store and when I take a road trip I look for fabric stores along the way. Sometimes my friends and I even plan our road trips around fabric shopping! That's how I discovered Textile Fabrics and Muna Couture in Nashville. Of course Fabric.com is right up the street from me (unfortunately they no longer have their great street sales and are internet only now). FabricMart sends me daily emails and I succumb all too often. And recently I have rediscovered Apple Anne. How can you not be tempted? I see a picture of fabric and instantly see the garment. How can you not love this:
Stretch tulle in a whimsical animal-inspired print with shiny vertical embroidered threads and clear sequins. Plan to make a great tunic, wrapped and layered dress, or swirly ruffled skirt.
This fabric is individually hand-dyed and wax-stamped on premium quality rayon. The luxurious drape of this fabric makes it perfect for sewing comfortable garments that can be worn year-round.
All the above were pasted directly from Apple Anne's website.
How about you? Where do you get your inspiration? Now if only my inspiring fabrics would lead me right to my sewing room so I would get to work.
