Jill have you tried googling suppliers in Hong Kong? supurb silks come from that part of the world and would be much closer to you than us. The Aus magazine 'Inspirations' might be able to help you too http://www.countrybumpkin.com.au/?cPath=2

What do you make with the silk Nancy?

I've made a couple of wholecloth quilts with it. It quilts up so beautifully! I also want to collect different colors and piece a quilt, but that's another down-the-road project because of lack of time.

it can be 2 different sources that can be very inexpensive - samplers of upholstery shop/industry, as well second hand via the internet.

I get my dupioni silk from fabric.com, but they are an American company so don't know if they ship internationally or how expensive that would be. Free shipping in the US with $35 purchase! It never takes me long to meet that minimum! :wink:

If you are just going to look at them and stroke them, or make a miniature quilt how about The Silk Route :D

Also take a look at Radiance fabrics from Robert Kaufman. I think they are 50/50 Cotton/Silk and really pretty!

Jill, I asked Alex, and she suggested you check Amazon for silk fabrics.
Like Lorchen said, I'll bet they are pricey!!

Jill, I bet that's expensive. I'm sure I would have to sell my first-born to be able to afford it. :)
