Fabric

When I have some time to myself, one of my favorite things to do is go to the fabric store and browse the aisles looking at all the color combinations, patterns, and styles.  In my neck of the woods, there is a Joann Fabric store nearby, and they have a nice selection, especially their specialty fabrics.  I found the fabric for my office drapes there.



A little further away is my favorite High Fashion Home.  They have several floors of fabrics, bolt upon bolt, everything from silk to leather, upholstery and drapery, and tons of styles and selections.  I've been known to spend hours browsing, coming home with a purseful of samples.  Here are a few I shot with my phone on a past visit.




The fabric for my living room/breakfast room drapes was purchased from High Fashion Home.  And you may recall that most recently, our dining room will be finally getting a set of drapes with this new fabric.


I've also ordered fabric online before from Fabric.com and have been happy with my order.


Where do you find your fabric?  I've heard that Calico Corners and Tonic Living are good, but I've never shopped them.

  3. I was at High Fashion Home yesterday...that's my favorite. In Houston I also love Interior Fabrics. I've ordered from fabric.com...but I've learned to order the swatch for $1.50 first before jumping in for the whole order...one time my color was WAY different than it looked online.

  9. I have gotten fabric from fabric.com and Calico Corners. I like them both. Calico Corners can get kind of pricey, so I make sure I have coupons before going there.

  10. I'm like a kid in a candy store with fabric - I have way too many hanging around I just haven't figured out what to do with yet! I love your drapes in your office, such a great pattern.

    I've shopped with Tonic Living numerous times and have been super happy.

  13. Love JoAnn's for their selection and price point. Calico Corners has nice fabrics, but is a bit pricey. We have some other great local stores here as well.

  14. I have several friends who order through fabric.com and really love them. I saw a couple of very similar fabrics to your features this afternoon!

  15. We don't have much around here, but I do like going to Mill End Textiles (http://millendtextiles.com/Home.html)which more like a fabric outlet.

  16. I can get lost walking the aisles in Joanne's and I do love Calico Corners. There are so many gorgeous fabrics out there. I've always loved your office drapery fabric. Happy weekend to you, Megan.

  17. I have had success at Glick Fabrics, which I had heard was owned by High Fashion Home. I also love JoAnn's. The store by me has a ton of the fabric samples on hangers. You can rent them for a week, there is a $5.00 hold charge for each sample. As long as you bring the sample back within 7 days they don't charge your card. Have a great weekend!
