I live in Harford County, but we are sorely lacking in fabric stores.  There is a large JoAnns, but 2/3 of it is crafts.  And there is a very nice quilting store, but I don't quilt and prefer heftier materials.  I miss the G Street from when I lived in NoVA. Sad  So tell me, where are the good fabric stores in Baltimore?  Which ones are worth the trip down there?

Thanks!

I live in HoCo too, unfortunately. Where is there a quilt store? Are you talking about the one in Aberdeen? I have wanted to check that one out.

Yes.  The quilt store is in Aberdeen.  I have been there a couple of times, and that is where I took my machine for service.  They were really nice and had lots of fabric, but for someone who prefers home decorating weight fabrics and fleece, it wasn't quite what I needed Sad

Thanks, have you ever been to Sew Unique in Hickory? I think that is a quilting store too, but I want to check that out too.

Also, had a thought, you might want to try Blanks Fabrics in Columbia: http://www.blanksfab.com/
I've never been there but my mom has talked about it and I think it's been around awhile. But I am not sure if it's that one, or this one:

Alexander Blank Fabrics Incorporated
2151 York Rd
Lutherville, MD 21093
Phone: (410) 561-2331

Or some of these maybe:

http://afabricplace.com/

PA Fabric Outlet Incorporated
(410) 747-4940
6563 Baltimore National Pike
Catonsville, MD 21228
-I have been here, it's small but if you are around there check it out. They had alot of trims and buttons, whole leather hides. I think this is the type of place that you never know what they would have. I think they had alot of upholstry fabrics too.

This place seems to be near PA Fabric Outlet too:
US Alteration Supply Shop
816 N. Rolling Rd.
Catonsville, MD 21228

Hope maybe that helps a little. Just search online a little and there are a few other independent ones in the city. I've never been to any of them though.

I work with a lot of quilters cotton, flannel, and fleece. Mostly I like smaller quilting stores. The women there usually don't mind answering silly sewing questions. There's a great one in Savage Mill, but I don't make it there often. another good one is in Crofton, called Tomorrow's Treasures. They are a little pricey, but a great local owned shop. They have wonderful classes and the ladies there are great! If you make it to tomorrow's treasures, pm me and let me know! I work right around the corner!

Just give me many chances, I'll see you though it all. Just give me time to learn to crawl.

 Cheesy
I have taken a few classes there and was more than pleased.  What a great thing they have going on there.  Reasonable too.
Thanks for the hot tip!
