If you live in Charlotte, east about 30 minutes-one hour (depending on what part of Charlotte you're in) in Monroe (I can't remember the name of the street, you turn right off 74 when there is a Quincy's on the left) there is an awesome fabric shop called The Salvage Shop-- notions, buttons, great prints, vinyl, fantastic decorator fabrics, patterns, piles of rescued fabrics, lots of foam, ribbon, elastic... EVERYTHING. Vintage patches even... Love the place. Just make sure you take cash or checks with ya.

I keep meaning to check out the $7 fabric store on 15/501 in Durham - but it closes early and it quite out of the way - has anyone been there?

My mom lives in Durham and she swears by that place, but I've never been myself. I've seen some of the fabric she's gotten there - not too shabby.

Have any of you Chapel Hill/Carrboro folks been to Paisely & Co in Southern Village? From what I've been told, they carry specialty paper and specialty fabrics. I've heard good things, but I've never gotten a chance to go out there.

vicious,

Actually, I'm not too up on where to go;  I moved back to Wilmington for school and haven't had a need to buy any fabric for a while (I live in Forest Hills area of Wilm.).  The only "fabric" I've bought in town was a lace duster from the Bargin Box on Princess Place Drive that I made into a bolero for a drag queen and a small piece of upholstery fabric from the $8 place for a messenger bag.  I've never ordered fabric before, but know that I will mostly have to do so for stuff I'd like to make (corsets, shoes). From what places do you order wholesale?  What's been your satisfaction level with ordering fabric?  Is there a particular type of fabric or style of fabric that you prefer?   Just curious to know.
