    Welcome fellow Texan! Don't feel bad that you didn't know about the fabric district--I have lived here my whole life and did not, either! I MUST check it out, OMG I am such a huge crafter! How did I not know this? If you would like to get together and work on making a fabric tail, I would love that. I sold my silicone and am just starting to make a fabric one for myself, and I LOVE having crafting partners!

    Pearlie, I think you're thinking of VERY west Texas close to New Mexico. Most of Texas is pretty lush with greenery and woods, though the hot sun often dries up the rivers by the end of the summer. There are plenty of natural and man made lakes, though, and everybody here waters like CRAZY so we all have bright green lawns, LOL. (That's probably where the river water goes!!!!!) Central Texas has great trees--in fact, my house was built in a pecan grove!
    Once upon a time I was known as Seavanna. Going by Seatan these days. I always wanted to be the high lord of underwater hell.

    The place in Dallas the Blaze told me about is Dallas Spandex at 2631 Perth Street Dallas, TX 75220. Great selection!

    Why did you sell your silicone tail? I wish I could afford one...they look so real compared to fabric tails.

    Working on tails together could be fun.

    I literally live 15 minutes from the district & have given 'tours' many, many times. Would be happy to do so again. I work weekdays now though (except for every other Friday) so Saturday mornings are best for me.

    I also have a large hardwood floor living room & ceramic tiled kitchen; lotsa room for crafting and pugs/cats who are used to it.

    Hahaha! Point taken!

    But I have been to there many, many times and one thing in common everywhere I've been in Texas...IT'S HOT!

    A Texan friend of mine once lamented..."Texas. It's a big place to get out of."

    It is both HOT and big. It's said by some that we have only 2 seasons...winter and summer.

    Welcome Amber!
    I am so jealous of the fabric district in Dallas. All we have in Houston is High Fashion Fabrics

    Houston isn't so far away. You should come up for a shopping trip. I might even be able to get you a discount on a hotel room.

    We should all make a MERry trip to the fabric district together! I am always looking for great fabrics to add to my craft room!

    Blaze said she'd be a guide...maybe her offer still stands.

    Blaze you are being called upon by your pod to lend us your noble knowledge and lead us on a magical journey toward the kingdom of fabric! (Just don't die on us and come back as Blaze, the White Rose of Texas!)

    LOL I would be happy to lead people around the district but I am booked up for Saturday mornings the next two weekends & Saturday is really the only day I can get down there these days. If you'd like to wait till August 8 I'd be happy to lead one.
