where to buy 80 inches wide fabrics?

Can you tell me where to buy 80 inches wide fabrics in Northern California or online? I am looking to heavy winter type of flannel type of fabrics. Medium to heavy woven cloth. May be cotton or other. No wool. Thank you.

For flannel, try your local quilt shops. They sometimes carry it for quilt backing or quilt linings.

Write to the folks at Fabric.com. Sometimes they have things that are not on their site or they can get it for you.

says they have flannel up to 108" wide.

is for 108" flannel.
Several places mention 60" flannel, and of course, many have 45". All found with a Google search for "wide flannel yardage."

Dear Joanne, Thank you for your suggestions. Now I get it. This is called extra wide fabrics. How do you touch and feel when buy online? Can you ask for sample? Or, is there any local Northern California shop I can go to check out the touch and feel of the fabrics. Do you find shopping fabric online costs more because fabrics is bulky and heavy with expensive shipping cost? Thank you.

Lots of places will send you a sample, or have a very generous return policy. Ask before ordering.
On-line fabric sources are filling a void. Paying for shipping becomes moot when the alternative is to do without. If you have a good fabric outlet locally, by all means, support it. If they don't do business, they will close as have so many others. The on-line sources are the only resource for many.
