Want to sew green but not sure where to get supplies? Many of our local Texas fabric stores like Joann and Hancock Fabrics had organic fabrics, but I have not seen them available in store for some time now. Below is a resource list for organic and natural fabric and notions suppliers. Hope this helps you sew green.
