As the buyer for Wesco Fabrics I’m often asked, “Dick, what are your favorite fabrics?” I have my all-time very favorite patterns as well as fabrics of the moment I feel very attracted to. It’s like the shirts in my closet. I often say to myself, “Why did I buy THAT!” I’ll share some of my favorites from recent Wesco Fabrics sample collections.  “Primo, color Meringue” from our “Top Shelf” collection, is a pattern I love!
