I got my fabric from him, as I figured it's nice to support forum members who support the forum, if you know what I mean.
In defense of Fabricmate. They are in the business of providing wall covering supplies to companies that put up 100's+ yards of fabric a year. The fact that they have gone out of their way to support the DIYer is admirable.
I ordered twice, the orders came within 5 business days, they shipped directly from Interface Fabrics (GOM).
Bpape, does a great service to this forum and he will get some of my business in the years to come as well.
