Gold Buffalo Check Fabric? Anyone?

*Edited to add: Thank you so much for your helpful comments!  I am not giving up hope yet, and will check into all your suggestions.  Someone asked me how much I need.  12 yards.  Two windows = four panels = 3 yards per panel.  A tall order, I know!  But I am determined!

Hi everyone!  Just a quick post to see if anyone can help me.

I am on the hunt for this fabric.  It is a gold buffalo check, and I am in love!  But I can't find it anywhere except really expensive fabric websites and I am, you know, cheap.

The Nester showed us the inspirational photo above on her blog, and if you go to this post you can see that she eventually found the fabric at Hobby Lobby.  Oh great and wonderful Hobby Lobby with their frequent 40% off coupons!  Alas, my Hobby Lobby does not have this fabric.  

So anyway, I thought I would put the word out that if anyone knows where I can score some of this fabric, I would be eternally grateful for the information!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Carrie,

I just bought this fabric Friday at Hobby Lobby. They now have it on clearance and that may be why you couldn't find any. Did you look at the clearance fabric? I paid around $13.00 a yard for it. I put it in my dining room and am considered buying more for the breakfast room but my Hobby Lobby didn't have enough. The lady thought there was only about 3 yards left and each of my windows takes 5 yards. GOOD LUCK. I'm hoping to find more too.

Have you tried the special order section at Joann's?

Amanda said...

i'll check my HL too - also on Clearance! keep you posted/

Carrie,

I just checked my receipt and there wasn't a SKU. It just said how many yards I got and it was $13.00 a yard. I think the regular price was $24.99 a yard. I had considered buying it about a week ago but waited and for once I was glad I did. I hope you can find some as I love mine. That's why I wish I would have found enough for my breakfast room. Now I just have to decide what color to paint my dining room because it is golden yellow and I think a different color would be better.

There are so many bloggers and Hobby Lobby's that I think someone should be able to find you some. Shannon from Bless Our Nest also has this material and told me she had gotten hers at Hobby Lobby. I too wanted to make sure it was the right material before I purchased it so I asked her. Go blog hoppin' and I'll bet someone will get you some!!

I will keep my eye out-

Monica @ Writer Chic said...

I'll keep my eyes out at our HL, too. And, just a thought...now that Nester is moving again....maybe she'll sell you her mistreatments and you can just get the fabric you need directly from her?

duchess said...

Good luck - it's beautiful.

Windy said...

I'll check out places in our area this week - how much of it do you need?

Jill -Forever and Ever House said...

I have those curtains and I got them at Linen's n Things which is unfortanately out of business. I wonder if you could find them on e-bay???

Jboo said...

I'll keep an eye out for it. You've probably already thought of this -- have you tried overstock.com? Good luck!

Emily said...

I have those curtains in my dining and living room. Love them! I got mine at LinenandThings, but I think they went out of business. Big bummer!

I just wish we had Hobby Lobby in this area...I feel like a loner out here in blogland since I've never even *seen* a Hobby Lobby!!

You could ask over at ApartmentTherapy.com

But a lot of the folks there seem to like to spend money - be warned. there are lots of helpful folks too.

Mandi said...

I haven't seen it at my hobby lobby, but good luck finding it. I get a lot of my fabric from online stores like fabric.com.

Sandy Toes said...

Country curtains DID have something similar..check them out!

Sarah said...

I'll be checking! I'm getting out more and more these days! Plus, I need to make sure Anna Claire knows the importance of finding a deal! :)

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

I'm afraid I'm going to be absolutely no help on this one because I have been looking for the same fabric. (on the cheap as well). If someone gives you a good lead, please let me know.

I've seen curtains made with that fabric at Bed Bath and Beyond.

Shannon said...

I got mine at Hobby Lobby about 4 years ago but they still have it every time I go. How many yards do you need and I'll check it out.

I am very much liking that inspirational photo you have there! What a room! You almost never can find what your looking for when you want it- then its "plenty" when your past the phase!

Marci @ All Things Wonderful said...

Oh, that's lovely fabric. Hope you find it!

Angie said...

Love that fabric too! I'll keep my eyes open and let you know if I see it.

I am so glad you found it! I am HAPPY as can be for you : ).

Ann said...

Help. I am looking for yellow/gold and white buffalo check fabric to slipcover a sofa. There is no Hobby Lobby in my area. Ann

Ann-
The only other place I have found anything similar is Calico Corners. Although, of course, it's much more expensive than the discounted fabric I found at Hobby Lobby. Good luck!
