I am about to order several shirts worth of fabric from the Acorn Grange range as it seems like a great deal but wanted to get various opinions on the fabric and how it compares to other fabrics first. If you have any experience, please share. Thanks in advance.
And does anybody have a contact email address for Acorn? I have never had luck with the one listed on their website and previously just assumed that it was because they didn't sell to the general public.

Thanks, and I still...
Excellent, I sent an email and look forward to hearing back. I am no expert in buying shirt fabric but those sound like excellent prices for Acorn.
So Acorn will sell to the general public?
Does anybody know of a good place to purchase high quality shirt fabric from? Thanks
