  1. Dear Daniela,
    I have contacted Linda on Blueprints on Fabric and she says they are still in business, but the website is not always working as it should, and orders are coming through sporadically. Keep trying I guess?

  2. Hi,
    I tried several times to contact BluePrintsOnFabric, but never got an answer. Maybe this store is closed? Does anyone know something about that? I also looked up other shops in this directory, but I couldn’t find, what I need for my next art project: precoated cotton squares (30 x 30 cm or 40 x 40 cm). Unfortunately I have currently no suitable space where I could coat fabric on my own.
    Please, let me know, if you know a shop, which offers precoated cyanotype cotton squares and delivers to Germany.
    Thank you very much!
    Best wishes, Daniela
