New Shop Opening, Toledo Area

Knitnut | Posted in General Sewing Info on

Uptown Fibers will be a yarn shop with a select group of independent designer sewing patterns,  limited selection of upscale fabric, and a small line of fiber art custom clothing.

We’ll be located in Sylvania, Ohio and expect to open on 10/18.

I’m hoping that those in the area will stop by and see what we have to offer.  We will be conveneintly located next to a Hancock Fabric store, so we will be very complimentary.

I’ll be offering specialty classes by travelling desingers/tailors, etc.  While yarn is the main product, the patterns and fabric will be a great feature for those of us who cross over – or want to learn new skills.

I’d welcome any comments or suggestions you care to share with me.  Jackie

    Hi Jackie,

    I'd love to see information for classes on a website.  I will be moving near that area soon and have been checking out the classes at Haberman Fabrics.  Their website is:


    I can get quite a bit of detail about their classes from their site.  This is really helpful to me and probably will be to others as well.

    Thank you for letting us know about you!

      Haberman is a dream shop for sewers!  I went there and spent the day but getting around Detroit was a mess.

      So I don't mislead you, I will have only about 25 -30 bolts of designer fashion fabric, a lot of independent patterns like LaFred, etc., and will then offer seminars and classes that are more lecture in nature because I don't have the space (nor equipment) to offer a lot of sewing hands on instruction.

      However - right next door to me is a sewing machine dealer AND Hancock fabrics!  I'm hoping to partner with both of them for some smashing events.  Thank you kindly for your comments.  I have taken them to heart and as my website gets up and running, I hope you'll let me know what you think.

      Come visit us and have a cup of tea/coffee when you get into town.

        Thank you for the additionaly information and the invitation for a cup of coffee.  I may well take you up on it!

          Ah - you should.  You have no idea how much we are!  Where are you coming from?

            Well, believe it or not right now I live in Sweden but I'll be moving to Royal Oak, Michigan soon.  (Same city as Haberman Fabrics!).  I have gotten spoiled with being able to travel and shop at some really nice fabric stores along the way so I think a trip to Toledo (or thereabouts) might be in order once I get home and before I get a job!  I have been really afraid that all of the nice places will be gone when I get back.  I have some good friends in Louisville and I was going to go down there and take a class at Behrs while visiting them but Behrs just closed.  It's really sad.  So, I'm glad to hear of some new places opening up.  I wish you good luck and please save me a cup of coffee!

            Holey Toledo!  You are moving to a great place and yes - Habermans would be my first stop on the first weekend I had free!  You will also have access to many other fine stores in your area. 

            Toledo is VERY limited in what we have.  Ann Arbor is a better place for FiberArtists, then Detroit or Chiciago. 

            I'll save you a cup of coffee but I doubt you'll ever come and collect it!  I thought you might have been coming to some place like Monroe, Mich or Defiance, Ohio! 

            Have a safe move - keep me posted on what is hot in your area.  Best wishes,  Jackie
