I want to use some Black velvet to make a Background for Flower photographs, But where do you get it from. I have tried fabric shops, and dressmaking shops whithout success. The nearest I could get was some Curtain material, But I was looking for somthing not quite that heavy.
Thanks

Try Dunelm - they do loads of fabrics, inexpensive mostly too.

Thank you for your helpful replies. I have tried these already and it would appear that I am just out of luck. I will leave it for a while and try again later.

Cheers

Your local market stall or cheap material shop should be able to help. I got some black velveteen last year and, more recently, some beige velvet. Both were about 3 a metre, for 1 metre wide cloth.
