im looking to get some chenille ric rack and i guess just "regular" ric rack also,piping and pompom trim in bulk..with what im working on, having one long long piece to use what i need than cut is easier than trying to figure out how many packages of it i need, then not having enough...i did a search for it on google, but all i got was a headache...i did win some off ebay, so ill see how that goes,but any ideas?? thanks so much! v.k. > ^..^<

Here are a couple of sources that may help you out. Many time the pom poms and sometimes even rick rack by the yard, and piping can be purchased in local fabric shops like Hancocks or Joann's...however, here are a couple sources. Denver Fabrics is pretty well known. I didn't do a whole lot of research on the last looked promising. Anytime you purchase in bulk you can end up saving money, especially if you plan to do more than one item or have uses for the left-overs. You also have fewer seams in your trim. I always purchase cording and elastic in bulk.

I feel the same way about insertions and entredeux that I used all the time.

I have both ordered from this site online and visited their storefront when I was in NYC (a dangerous venture... too too too many tempting things!).

There is LOTS more in the store than on the site, so if you're looking for something specific, e-mail them and they may have it.
