Well, I am a dummy. I've been ordering silk from this company for years; I know how it arrives, always the same...
in a roll, wrapped in heavy black plastic, usually a piece of paper in between the paper and fabric (except I was thinking it was corrugated cardboard, not paper). You know - most packages you get in the mail are tightly packed, it takes more than 1 person to open, and this was no exception. After much struggling, I took a razor blade, and thinking I had plenty of wiggle room..
I ran it down the length of black plastic and to my surprise - cut through to the roll of silk organza.
I didn't think it was so bad at first, but then started peeling off the layers and layers
and layers. I was mad at myself but then measured out the strips. Each strip was 9" wide before the next accidental cut. When I print on fabric, I cut them 9" wide X the width of the fabric, in this case 54" and then I Bubble Jet them. So now I have ALL this fabric; I have no choice but use it for printing!
