Where have all the fabric stores gone
I have been all over the internet and in some cities and states where real fabric stores have died away. When I say real fabric stores, I don’t mean quilting fabric, I mean quality fashion fabric (silks, wool, linen, etc). JoAnn Fabrics used to be a wonderful FABRIC Store and at this point, especially at Christmas time, it has become a junky dime store. Hancock Fabric has become the same way.
I am disappointed in some fabric websites where the pictures of fabric should be more detailed in order to get an idea of what the piece really looks like. I want more from which to choose. At this point, some upholstery fabric has more beauty than some of the “fashion fabric” I see out there.
There are only a couple of websites I’d recommend to fashion fabric enthusiasts: Emma One Sock, Denver Fabrics, & Banksville Designer Fabric. Websites that could do better are Sawyer Brook, Thai Silks, Gingerbread Hill & Leandro Fabrics.
