Did Loomcraft move? I went past their old location on Lakeview Parkway
just off Rt 60 last week and it's empty/for rent.

Vogue in Evanston is well worth the drive. www.myvoguefabrics.com for
location/sale/hours info.

Manhattan sounds very much like Loomcraft down in Vernon Hills, Illinois
where Hieronymus works.  I've found period brocades there for as little
as $5/yard.  For linen and wool, the only regional places I could
recommend are Vogue Fabrics in Evanston, Illinois or Textile Discount
Outlet down in Chicago.
