Awesome to see this thread!

New-ish to the area and wondering if there are any fabric stores in the Triangle that don't totally suck? All I've found so far is a very, very sad JoAnn's.  I'm bummed that I may have to either web-order or make regular buying trips to NYC...

In the Durham area (where I am) there's a JoAnn's, a Hancock Fabrics (both with similar selections, I imagine, to the Joann's you're referring to). There's a $7.99 fabric store on 15-501 business which I've actually never been to. Then there's The Scrap Exchange (which is much-loved, especially in our household), which is definitely not a fabric store, but does have a bunch of fabric on bolts for $2.99 a yard, mostly heavy-duty/interior decorating fabrics. I'm more of a fabric hoarder than seamstress so I haven't explored more options in the area.

There's also Thimble Pleasures in Chapel Hill, which is mainly a quilting store. I've only gone there for notions and sewing machine needles, so I haven't examined their fabric selection, but they have tons of print cottons. If you're a quilter it seems to be the place to go.
