So I've found one (yes, ONE) New Zealand shop that will sell me organic woven cotton fabric for quilting. Keep in mind that I'm searching on-line because I live in a rural area with limited shopping options.
They kindly sent me swatches so I could check weights and the feel of the fabric and see the colours first hand.
But as you can see, the range is somewhat limited. And only three fabrics with any pattern at all, and not really my kind of patterns (maybe the stripe). But the price is really reasonable at $14 - $16 per metre (don't know if GST is included in that). For those of you overseas, in NZ we pay around $15-$20 per metre for quilting cottons in large department style fabric stores, $25-$30 per metre in quilting stores and up to $35 for a designer label. Of course you can always get them on sale if you're prepared to wait!
I like these together. I could see some sort of Amish design.
I've emailed Grandmother's Garden, one of the 'big' little exclusively quilting stores in NZ to ask for their thoughts on carrying an organic line of fabrics (and I told them WHY they should be carrying these kinds of fabrics) - no reply as of yet.
And I've found a wholesaler who does stretch organic cottons and will hopefully be adding a line of wovens in 3-6 months.
So not much yet. Maybe I'll just have to start importing fabrics myself. Would anyone buy them? Is there a market for them besides myself?
