Sorry, but I moved here from Detroit in May after I married.  Where, other than JoAnn's and Wal-Mart, do you girls buy your fabric?  Usually I visit the Robinson & Cranberry locations...any other good spots?  Thanks! Smiley

I've been seeing commercials for another place that's specifically for fabrics, but I can't remember the name - next time I see it I"ll be sure to post the name.
After a quick search, I've found:

Boone Fabrics
8035 McKnight Road
Pittsburgh, PA  15237
(no website)
and

Calico Corners (calicocorners.com)
1610 Cochran Rd.
15220 (this one seems to be home fabrics only)

How close are you to Mount Lebanon? I seem to remember seeing a fabric store along Cochran Road (Rt. 121, Yellow Belt) in the Mount Lebanon/Scott Twp. area, I can't remember right offhand what the name is though. Next time I'm in the area I will double check and let you know, if you're interested.  Smiley

You know...there is one near Mt. Lebanon, but I think it's a home fabric store...I've never popped in, though.  Is that the one you're talking about?  It's right down the street from a Max & Erma's and a chic-looking restaurant (obviously, I'm still totally confused by Pittsburgh's roads. lol!).

Yeah, that's the one I'm thinking of, I didn't realize that they only did home fabrics. Sorry!

That's okay!  Home decor fabrics are perfect for bags & purses - they're tougher.  They seem to handle being tossed into the passenger seat day after day a lot better than some other things. Wink

Thought I would "re-visit" this 2006 thread to see if there were any other recommendations for the Pittsburgh area (or within 20 or so miles of Pittsburgh). We are new to the area; although JoAnns is conveniently located and satisfies most of the family's crafting needs - would be nice to know of a couple of other fabric fueling stations Wink

Piecing It Together on Babcock I think

There's Quilter's Quarters in Butler.

Go to I think its Three Rivers Quilters and there's a list of quilt shops in the area which will probably carry fabric
