Has anybody taken up the Source4Style University membership offer?

According to their information:

As part of the university membership, students and faculty can:
  • purchase swatches at 50% off ($2/swatch)
  • order sampling yardage directly from local suppliers with low minimums
  • store swatches in their own virtual swatch book
  • participate in monthly webinars & receive seasonal trends reports
  • receive weekly emails revealing new suppliers & textiles

I’d be interested to know what you think of it.

  1. Since our library is not involved in fabric swatches & materials databases, i forwarded the link to those in charge of such matters within our school. So: thanks for this post!

    i already had some feedback, indicating the intention to investigate the possibilities of Source4Style. In case i get wind of their findings i will let you know.

  2. Hello,

    The Fashion Institute of Technology has trial access to Source4Style. The ability to purchase swatches is a big plus for students, and our other databases do not provide this service. I’m happy to provide feedback once our trial ends after the spring semester.
