Hi! I know this is an older thread, but I thought i'd go ahead and respond!
The best place to cotton fabric is People Places and Quilts.  There are two locations, one in Summerville and one in Downtown Charleston.  I've been to both and I personally think the one in Summerville has a wider selection.  Also, there is a yarn store right across the street!

I would definitely recommend PPQ.  They have designer fabrics, books, notions, everything you need.  They also have a Janome showroom where you can test them out and what not.

suzyyy29 - Thanks!!! I haven't been over here for awhile and just found your post. I'll have to check them out. The one fabric store Walmart just closed here :-( The only fabric store I've found so far that has much of a selection is in West Ashley...the Hancocks. I'm glad to hear of another place. I love to check out machines too! I need another serger sometime.

This week I noticed a fabric store next to the "old" Walmart in Mt. Pleasant! I'm not really sure how long they have been there or what sorts of fabrics they sell.  (Please, Please don't say it's just an upholstery fabric/ GDCish store!)

I just saw the sign... but will be stopping by this week.  Does anyone have any info about this store? I don't even remember the name of the store (sad, I know).  I had 2 kids in the car and we were desperately trying to get everything together for our school supply lists! 

Cheers!

There is one over that way that does have upholstery and heavier weight fabric. It looks nice if what you are making is bags, etc. Also, they have a few lighter weight pieces that are more along the line of gauze etc. The ladies who run it are great and might special order for you.I'm not sure if this is the one you meant, but if not, I'll be on the lookout for it.

The Walmart with fabric that remained up in the Northwoods mall area is gone now...:-( There is a tiny sewing place that seems to be mostly quilt and machine oriented over by Salon Capelli area...new to the area but I think it's off coleman. I still make the trek over to West Ashley to the Hancocks when I need fabric. Let me know if you find anything more!

Thank you for the scoop! I will definitely be stopping in to meet the ladies.  BPicky is the store on Coleman. They have upholstery/curtain type fabrics... by looking at their prices they are might proud of their product.  I dropped in the other day and the ladies working there BARELY said hello... then again, I did still have on my slightly damp bathing suit and well worn shorts and an old tshirt.  They were probably trying to get me out the door so I didn't ruin anything.

There is a wonderful store on Coleman, closer to the bridges in the same center as Locklears (great lunch prices, btw) that has great patterns and fabric.  They teach sewing lessons, always have what I'm looking for, and are SO nice.  Just in case anyone else out there is looking!

Cheers!
