During this trip to the Bay area, I managed to make it to Britex! I had been there one time many years ago, but I saw it with new eyes now that I have more sewing experience under my belt. I think Nancy described the 4 floors of Britex perfectly, so I refer you to her blog for the details.
Examining a remnant
Can you believe I didn't buy a single thing? I figured I'd get a nice cotton for a spring blouse, but I was feeling miserly that day and left empty-handed.
I inquired about that oh-so-elusive fabric, silk jersey. They are located on the 1st floor, and the saleswoman pointed to some way high up shelves to show me their selection. They have some solid colors and a few prints, I squinted and saw a few potentially interesting designs. She said the prices start at $60 - $70/yard and go up from there. I didn't ask her to pull anything down for me.
