Fabric Shops

Remember that most material used for set or props will need to be flame retardant. Although this can be achieved using 'flamecheck' or similar, it almost always works out cheaper to buy fabric that's already flameproof.

Be aware that if something is labelled 'NDFR' this means Non Durably Flame Retardant - if these are wetted, e.g. by painting or dyeing them, they lose their flame retardant properties. Most places will offer free samples.
