Two or three weeks ago, I emailed the Whole 9 Yards about any Art Nouveau drapery fabrics they might have. They very kindly sent me two batches of swatches. Unfortunately, I wouldn't describe more than one swatch as plausibly Art Nouveau and that was in colors that won't go with our decor. They really seem like a nice store to deal with but their current inventory is apparently not to our taste.

So, we had a trip north today and stopped by The Whole 9 Yards to see, as we had 
never heard of it, and fabric stores are few and far between here… it is gorgeous, 
VERY easy to find and has a small amount of off-street parking (important in that 
part of town). Very impressive displays (as far as we were concerned) but only a 
little that could have been applied to our interests (Tudor & Elizabethan 
costuming, if we were doing those…) Did not see a lot I would have described as Art 
Nouveau, but a little Arts-n-Crafts or Victorian, maybe. Definitely interior decor 
fabrics, with a few bits of costume-applicable overlap.

The Whole 9 Yards fabric store in Portland had a great selection of Art
Nouveau and Arts and Craft type drapery textiles last time I was in there.
The good news is no sales tax in Oregon, the bad news, the store is in
Oregon.  They do shipping.
