[livejournal.com profile] cheesentoast and I are going to try and make me some clothes. To that end I need to figure out something about fabric. I've looked in a few places but it seems to be filled with stuff that's good for quilting but not clothing.

Where do you go to by fabric to make your clothing?

Hancock Fabrics, Joannes Fabrics, Hobby Lobby, some Wal-Marts still have a fabric section.

Thanks! JoAnn is on my list to visit. I think there's a Hancock in the area. I don't know of any Hobby Lobby stores around here.

Pacific Fabric was a wash last night but they have another location which has a better selection I hear. Plus it's above and iron works for another win.

My friend [livejournal.com profile] yonjuunana also has a ton of fabric she's giving away. You should ask her if you can arrange to meet to get some.

A friend of my refers to that place as Satan's Sewing Basket - I think because she ends up spending so much money there...

That's a good review, I guess... ;)

For the Seattle area, you absolutely can't beat Pacific Fabrics, especially their outlet store in Sodo. The outlet has all sorts of amazing simple fabrics (cotton, flannel, wool, that kind of stuff) for really cheap, which is great when you're first learning. And they have nicer stuff, too.

i have a bunch of fabric you could look through, though most of it is likely not really what you're looking for. still, i wouldn't ask much, if anything for it, if you'd like to come by and take a quick peek.

Some of the costumer's from Norwescon last year said good things about fabric for less in Renton
