The wide range of high-mid range home furnishing fabrics and fixings, the discount prices, and the knowledgeable and helpful staff have kept me coming back to Fabulous Fabrics for over 2 decades. If you don't find what you want in the discount racks, there are also racks of swatches that can be special-ordered at good prices. I've worked with interior designers on unusual needs, but so far as design advice goes, FF's staff has been equally good and creative, with no charge for the advice. Plus they are friendly and will work with a customer who is only wanting to cover a couple of pillows just as carefully as one who is wanting curtains for three rooms. Good products, wide range, seasoned design advice, and good taste---all reasons to recommend FF.
I have been a fairly accomplished seamstress for decades (made lots of clothes for my husband, children, and me) . . . made curtains, pillows, simple slipcovers, upholstered furniture, etc. But when I needed something done that was "above my pay grade", I went to Carolyn's Sewing and Alterations . . . she (or her staff) did a GREAT job at a reasonable price. Her workshop walls are LITERALLY covered in pictures of prom dresses that she's made (or altered), home decorating projects . . . whatever you need, she can do. She'd not have all this if she was overpriced or did shoddy work. I'd use her again in a heartbeat . . . without question !
I just had 2 custom pillows made using 2 down-stuffed pillow forms and my own fabric. This business did a fantastic job! The pillows look great -- the stitching is very straight and intact -- no stray threads anywhere. I highly recommend this business for any sewing need you may have.
