Does ANYONE sell 100% Cotton Gingham?

I have searched all over the internet for 100% cotton gingham to make my next art doll. Why is gingham only 65/35 poly/cotton blend? Has this old time favorite gone polyester on me! I have looked at all the retail chain fabric stores. Woe is me! Why did I move from LA! They had all those little back street jobbers with tons of fabrics! I finally found 100% cotton gingham at a cute little online shop call Adrienne's Attic but wouldn't you know she is going out of business! She only had a tiny 1/8 inch check. I wanted at least a ¼ inch check. But I ordered it anyway. So far I have at least 5 different types of gingham that are not really what I want. Yet I keep buying them. I know. . .how insane is that! One is actually a linen/cotton blend but the color is not the right shade of blue. I am not going to give up hope. Being the fabricholic that I am I will never accept defeat! Someone out there has to have 100% cotton gingham in the blue I want. If anyone reads this blog and knows of any place I can find ¼ inch, medium blue, 100%cotton gingham please tell me! The shade of blue I am looking for is the same as Dorothy jumper in the Wizard of Oz.
