Yeah, so I figured to skip on computer wiring altogether. Keep it simple.

Knoll Textiles

today the Knoll fabric samples arrived. WOW! Now that's really nice textiles. We requested and received 25 or so sample swatches, and from the looks of it it will be tough to make a choice, they are all very nice.
The colors are very vibrant, and the materials feel like quality. A far cry from the regular fabric store variety that we have smapled so far.

How did you hear about Knoll, Uwe? Online? I'm far from the point of looking at fabric but it would be nice to know where to go for it now! (Your '63 looks wonderful - I'm still sanding!) Diane

Knoll has been my favorite office furniture supplier, next to Ikea. Both office lines are excellent. Then, while browsing for a new chair, I ran across their textile line a few years back, looking for a chair covering color.
Anyways, I remembered seeing some nice colors, and went back to www.knolltextiles.com
You can contact your local rep and have them send samples. A swatch speaks a thousand words.....
I like the cuddle cloth. Feels wonderful and has a beautiful texture.

Just checked them out - they really do have some lovely fabric - one that caught my eye was "Tides Sea Grass" at $64/linear yard. How many yards on average make up a gaucho? (I better start saving now!)

I hear you!
It's 13 yards for a dinette and a goucho, according to Shari.
Probably half that if you just do a goucho only. But, better check with a pro before ordering.
You can save further by doing the bottoms in a less expensive canvas.

Garment district...

Uwe - having Los Angeles so close can be a boon. I'd check for wholesale fabric places in downtown. I think you'll find some steals.

Fabric in LA

I discovered uwe's great thread...really great for those of us that are new to this. Thank you!
When you mentioned fabric my ears perked up. I worked in the la garment discrict as a buyer for many years. Michael Levine at 9th and Maple gets in great overruns from high end furniture manufacturers. Current goods at great prices. The block around 9th and maple is surrounded by manufacturers close outs shops. But time is money and you have to go down and look for what you need.
Diamond fabrics in the fairfax area has a great selection but they are pricier.

Ingrid,
Since we are practically neighbors with Uwe...we will try to get into the secret lab and verify that all those great pictures are not the result of Uwe playing with photoshop....just for the good of the community of course!
We can't wait to see his work. Hope to get over there tomorrow!
Lynn

Lynn,

I have seen Uwe's trailer and work, the pictures are accurate. If you are going to Area 63 this weekend, stop by my house, the 1954 Double Door Liner will be here for work. I am only two miles from Area 63.

Bill
