FWIW, I just designed some fabric to be printed at Spoonflower and am
not completely happy with it - the printing was fine and it washes ok

printed fabric onto some lightweight white cotton and then cut and sew
the two layers as one.

The blog was a happy find.  Amongst other topics every Friday there is a
summary of which online sites are having sales. Could be especially
tempting for those who don't need to contend with shipping across the
border to the great white north!

The spoonflower fabric that I got was 3.2 oz, 76x 78  threads per square

basic principals...I'll look for it and post it.
