- Quilt shops are perfect little places to get fabrics of all materials and styles. I have recently started quilting, and so I visited a local quilt shop. I was delighted to see all of the different fabrics available. What I was most happy about were the quilting classes offered once a month through the quilt shops. If you are a beginning quilter, you might want to check out your local quilt shops as well. These stores offer all kinds of help such as classes, how-to fliers, and friendly sale reps. My third quilting class is next weekend. I can't wait to learn a new technique. And, the prices for the classes are next to nothing!
- I love to sew and am always looking for different fabrics at bargain prices. I have found the best fabric shopping can be done online. There is a wide selection of fabrics available worldwide at my fingertips. I sew clothes, pillows, curtains and so much more. I have always been able to find the color and patterns I need in the right textures online. I have even found discount online fabric stores. When I am not too picky about the fabric I am purchasing, I can find some really good deals there. I also enjoy the convenience of having it shipped right to my door.
- From head to toe, I am a bargain shopper. That is why I love the sewing fabric bins at fabric shops. These bins don't have a huge selection-they mostly consist of leftover sewing fabrics. But, the prices are great, and every once in a while, I can find the exact material I was looking for. So, instead of paying a large amount for sewing fabric, I give up the option of choice and head to the bargain bin. Here, I still get the same quality of sewing fabric-but at a fraction of the cost.
- I was at the fabric store the other day, considering whether or not I should re-upholster my couch. It is in fine shape, but after 4 kids the stains are more than I can take. I look at the corduroy, I knew that it would be durable and comfortable, but not that pretty. I also found some beautiful satin with a cream and hazelnut floral print, and then my mind went right back to stains, cleaning it would be a nightmare. I finally found a microfiber fabric with an array of colors to choose from. It was both durable, soft and cleans with just a damp rag. I was sold and now it was time to get started.
- Upholsterers use some many different fabrics to surface furniture and other materials, it is amazing. The industry behind these fabrics is what amazes me. There is a very special level of detail that is being observed in every type of fabric used. We have recently opened up a fabric store that caters to these types of upholstery needs and it is blowing up. What a wonderful level of textile and fabric designs have emerged out of this industry. The use of leathers and fabrics stretched over framework is a true craft, one that my husband I both hope continues to grow.
- I have decided to take on a new venture and reupholster my couch. The cushions are still good, the material is just really outdated. I went to my local upholstery store, and I was very pleased with the selection they had available. I found the style of furniture upholstery I was looking for. And, all I had to do was take in my sofa measurements. The ladies at the store figured the amount of material I would need. If only they could come help me cover the couch as well!
