Where can I get wholesale fabric that has great prices and good variety?

I have been searching and searching and searching for a wholesale fabric distributor. Anything I do find, they charge average/normal price $7.99/yd. Might as well just go into JoAnn’s and buy it there if that’s the case.
I am looking for a company online that sells on average $3/yd or so (give or take a dollar). A company that has a good variety of fabric and not just cheesey and outdated prints/material. I want current, up-to-date, modern, vintage, novelty (Michael Miller, Robert Kaufman, etc).
Please help! Thank you!!!!

I really like this site, Good Fabrics , great prices. You can search by manufacture or the colors you are looking for , wide variety of quilting from batiks to novelty! The quality is never a disappointment and they ship fast. I usually get my order in 3 -4 days tops.

Dangerous Doctrine


Dangerous Doctrine


$48.89


Much like Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan, President Barack Obama came to office as a politician who emphasized conviction rather than consensus. During his 2008 presidential campaign, he pledged to transform the role of the United States abroad. His ambitious foreign policy goals included a global climate treaty, the peaceful withdrawal of American military forces from Iraq and Afghanistan, and a new relationship with Iran. Throughout Obama’s tenure, pundits and scholars have offered competing interpretations of his “grand strategy,” while others have maintained that his policies were incoherent or, at best, ad hoc. In Dangerous Doctrine, political scientist Robert G. Kaufman argues that the forty-fourth president has indeed articulated a clear, consistent national security policy and has pursued it with remarkable fidelity. Yet Kaufman contends that President Obama has imprudently abandoned the muscular internationalism that has marked US foreign policy since the end of World War II. Drawing on international relations theory and American diplomatic history, Kaufman presents a robust critique of the Obama doctrine as he situates the president’s use of power within the traditions of American strategic practice. Focusing on the pivotal regions of Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, this provocative study demonstrates how current executive branch leadership threatens America’s role as a superpower, weakening its ability to spread democracy and counter threats to geopolitical order in increasingly unstable times. Kaufman proposes a return to the grand strategy of moral democratic realism, as practiced by presidents such as Harry S. Truman, Ronald Reagan, and George W. Bush, with the hope of reestablishing the United States as the world’s dominant power.

Great Northfield Minnesota Raid


Great Northfield Minnesota Raid


$10.62


The final days of the infamous James gang are meticulously detailed in this riveting account of the group’s most daring robbery. Led by the introspective Cole Younger (Cliff Robertson) and the nearly psychotic Jesse James (Robert Duvall), the much-glorified desperadoes set their sights on the biggest bank west of the Mississippi. The gritty action and dialogue, based on documented fact, chronicles the robbery from Younger’s decision to storm the seemingly impregnable depository right up to the precision-planned assault. Directed in semi-documentary style by Philip Kaufman, this taut action-adventure shows the West as it truly was and why it will never be forgotten.

Performers include: The Leroy Smith Orchestra, Thomas Morris, Mike Mosiello, Andy Sannella. Personnel: Frank Luther, Jerry White, Irving Kaufman, Arthur Fields, Smith Ballew, Vaughn DeLeath (vocals); Andy Sannella (guitar, clarinet, alto saxophone); Carl Kress (guitar); Sam Speed, John Cali (banjo); Leroy Smith, Al Duffy (violin); Emerson Harper (clarinet, oboe, alto saxophone); Carl Orech (clarinet, alto saxophone); Bob Fuller (clarinet); Harold Henson (alto saxophone, vocoder); Manny Klein, Frank Belt, Pike Davis, Jack Cox, Mike Mosiello (trumpet); Thomas Morris (cornet); Charlie Butterfield, Robert Lewis, Tommy Dorsey (trombone); Claude Austin, Harry Brooks, Mike Jackson (piano); George Hamilton Green, Joe Green’s Novelty Orchestra (xylophone, drums); Edward Beeler (drums). Audio Remasterer: John R.T. Davies. Liner Note Authors: Laurens Hertzdahl; Steven C. Barr; John Wilby. Director: Leroy Smith. You don’t have to be a collector of obscure 78 rpm platters to enjoy this remarkable gold mine of all-but-forgotten jazz and hot novelty recordings. Whereas anyone who has actually handled the original artifacts will swoon with delight as the mother lode of 27 precious musical relics gradually reveals itself in all its glory. The Grey Gull company was born in Boston back in December 1919, the brainchild of one Theodore Shaw. By 1921 Grey Gull was actively leasing phonograph masters from other firms. Which makes this a rather surprising survey for the serious collector, as only one of these selections originally came out bearing the Grey Gull label. Grey Gull, it seems, was primarily an all-purpose record pressing operation, which had a hand in manufacturing and distributing lateral records bearing quite a number of small-time labels. While Emerson seems to have been a main source of material, labels represented on this disc include Nadsco, Amco, Globe, Madison, Van Dyke, Phonycord, Goodson, Piccadilly, Supreme, Up-To-Date and that fabulous budget line with the futu

Orthomolecular Treatment of Chronic Disease


Orthomolecular Treatment of Chronic Disease


$58.11


If the word “cure” intrigues you, this book will also. High doses of vitamins have been known to cure serious illnesses for nearly 80 years. Claus Jungeblut, M.D, prevented and treated polio in the mid-1930s, using a vitamin. Chest specialist Frederick Klenner, M.D, was curing multiple sclerosis and polio back in the 1940s, also using vitamins. William Kaufman, M.D, cured arthritis, also in the 1940s. In the 1950s, Drs. Wilfrid and Evan Shute were curing various forms of cardiovascular disease with a vitamin. At the same time, psychiatrist Abram Hoffer was using niacin to cure schizophrenia, psychosis, and depression. In the 1960s, Robert Cathcart, M.D, cured influenza, pneumonia, and hepatitis. In the 1970s, Hugh D. Riordan, M.D, was obtaining cures of cancer with intravenous vitamin C. Dr. Harold Foster and colleagues arrested and reversed full-blown AIDS with nutrient therapy, and in just the last few years, Atsuo Yanagasawa, M.D, Ph.D, has shown that vitamin therapy can prevent and reverse sickness caused by exposure to nuclear radiation. Since 1968, much of this research has been published in the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine. This book brings forward important material selected from over forty-five years of JOM directly to the reader. At some 800 pages, The Orthomolecular Treatment of Chronic Disease is a very large book, but it is also a very practical book. If you want to know which illnesses best respond to nutrition therapy, and how and why that therapy works, this is the book for you. Part One presents the principles of orthomolecular medicine and the science behind them. Part Two is devoted to orthomolecular pioneers, presenting an introduction to maverick doctors and nutrition scientists in a reader-friendly way that brings the subject to life. Part Three brings together extraordinary clinical and experimental evidence from expert researchers and clinicians. The Orthomolecular Treatment of Chronic Disease shows exactly how innovati

Sexual Culture in the Literature of Medieval Britain


Sexual Culture in the Literature of Medieval Britain


$35.38


It is often said that the past is a foreign country where they do things differently, and perhaps no type of “doing” is more fascinating than sexual desires and behaviours. Our modern view of medieval sexuality is characterised by a polarising dichotomy between the swooning love-struck knights and ladies of romance on one hand, and the darkly imagined and misogyny of an unenlightened “medieval” sexuality on the other. British medieval sexual culture also exhibits such dualities through the influential paradigms of sinner or saint, virgin or whore, and protector or defiler of women. However, such sexual identities are rarely coherent or stable, and it is in the grey areas, the interstices between normative modes of sexuality, that we find the most compelling instances of erotic frisson and sexual expression. This collection of essays brings together a wide-ranging discussion of the sexual possibilities and fantasies of medieval Britain as they manifest themselves in the literature of the period. Taking as their matter texts and authors as diverse as Chaucer, Gower, Dunbar, Malory, alchemical treatises, and romances, the contributions reveal a surprising variety of attitudes, strategies and sexual subject positions. Amanda Hopkins teaches in English and French at the University of Warwick; Robert Allen Rouse is Associate Professor of English at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada; Cory James Rushton is Associate Professor of English at St Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia, Canada.

Some Enchanted Evenings


Some Enchanted Evenings


$11.99


Mary Martin was one of the greatest stars of her day. Growing up in Texas, she was married early to Benjamin Hagman and gave birth to her first child, Larry Hagman. She was divorced even more quickly. Martin left little Larry with her parents and took off for Hollywood. She didn’t make a dent in the movie industry and was lured to New York where she found herself auditioning for Cole Porter and his new show “Leave It to Me!”. After she sang the bawdy “My Heart Belongs to Daddy”, she ended up on the cover of Life magazine. Six years later, she became the Toast of Broadway when she starred in “South Pacific”. After that, she flew as “Peter Pan”, yodeled in “The Sound of Music”, took “Hello, Dolly!” on the road and shared a four-poster with Robert Preston in “I Do! I Do!”. Her personal life was just as interesting: In NYC, she met and married Richard Halliday, a closeted upper-class homosexual who adored her, Broadway and interior decorating (though probably not in that order). They were a powerful twosome. There were rumors about Martin, too, being in a lesbian relationship with both Janet Gaynor and Jean Arthur. Peopled with legends like Ethel Merman, Ezio Pinza, Noel Coward and a starry cast of thousands, David Kaufman’s “Some Enchanted Evenings” is the delectable story of the one and only Mary Martin, a woman who described herself as a chicken farmer from Texas only to become Peter Pan and capture America’s heart.

The Political Economy of Democratic Transitions


The Political Economy of Democratic Transitions


$65.81


In the last two decades, there has been a widespread movement from authoritarian to democratic rule among developing countries, often occurring against a backdrop of severe economic crises and the adoption of market-oriented reforms. The coincidence of these events raises long-standing questions about the relationship between economic and political change. In this book, Stephan Haggard and Robert Kaufman explore this relationship, addressing a variety of questions: What role have economic crises played in the current wave of political liberalization and democratization? Can new democracies manage the daunting political challenges posed by economic reform? Under what economic and institutional conditions is democracy most likely to be consolidated? Drawing on contemporary political economy and the experiences of twelve Latin American and Asian countries, they develop a new approach to understanding democratic transitions. Haggard and Kaufman first analyze the relationship between economic crisis and authoritarian withdrawal and then examine how the economic and institutional legacies of authoritarian rule affect the capacity of new democratic governments to initiate and sustain economic policy reform. Finally, the authors analyze the consolidation of political and economic reform over the long run. Throughout, they emphasize the relationship between economic conditions, the interests and power of contending social groups, and the mediating role of representative institutions, particularly political parties.
