Fabric Store Recommendations

limelake | Posted in General Discussion on

Hi,
I am finally going on my first vacation in over 5 years and I would appreciate any fabric store recommendations you have. I sew both apparel and crafts, so if you think its a great store then I probably will too. I would like to find a source that carries good quality knits/jerseys to make those wrap dresses and tops. I will be in San Diego, Sacramento, and Mustang (OK). I would like to thank you in advance for your time!

    If you can go on to OKC there are several stores there.  I like to go to Helen Enox fabrics on S.W. 59th I think.  I've found several things there that I don't find at Hancocks at home.  Some of the other stores are interesting also but Helen Enox was very well laid out, easy to get around in and the ladies in the store were very nice.  I haven't been there in the last year so I hope they are still there.  Hope to go in March when I go back to Oklahoma.

      Thanks so much for your response. I have put OKC and the store on my list of things to do in Oklahoma. Thanks again!

    The Hancocks Fabrics on El Camino in Sacramento is huge and has an incredible selection of fabrics I've never seen at other Hancocks. I've bought lovely silks there for less than$4 per yard. Quite a few huge tables with clearance fabrics of all types in qualities I didn't expect, too, although the good stuff is stacked along with the poor stuff.

    About 20 miles northeast of Sacramento is Triad Plus, 1800 Washington Blvd. in Roseville. Triad is a decorator fabric outlet with a back room full of bargain-priced mill ends and flat folds and a front room of exquisite current decorator fabrics at significant savings. The flat folds have between 2 and 5 yards each at $2.95/yard, so I've been able to recover chairs, make duvet covers, tote bags, aprons, pillow covers, etc. for unbelievably cheap. (An armchair slipcover in a Waverly fabric for less than $10!)

    While not particularly rich in fabric stores, Sacramento has great restaurants & great outlets (besides the typical outlet malls) that include Nordstrom Rack, The Shoe Pavilion, and Naturewood Furniture Outlet as well as Costco & REI, all within a couple miles of Arden Fair Mall. Enjoy shopping!
