I just wanted to find out if anyone knows of cool stores which sell fabric. I live near Easton, and since Hobby Lobby near us closed down, as did Hancock Fabrics, all I know of is Joann (well, and Wal-Mart is rumored to have fabric, but I try not to step foot in there) Are there any smaller places around which sell fabric, especially cute/different fabric? I am a little bored with the selection at Joann....

The Hobby Lobby on Sawmill does. 

There's also Calico Corners on the corner of 161 and Sawmill (I've never been in there). 

Fabric Farms on Riverside.

There may be some Hancock Fabrics left in town (the one near me is now a Fresh Market).  Check the Yellow Pages under "fabric."Smiley

I work at the joanns in easton and although you don't want to step inside wal-mart, they do have some good dollar fabric sometimes. but you gotta get there on the days they get it in, it goes pretty fast. (i think friday is the day they get it.) so i would check that out.

Sadly some of the best fabric is still only available to us via the internet....
I do often find super cute fabric at quilt stores though-calico corners sounds interesting, ill have to check it out---- and i've also heard of a place called the Glass Thimble   http://www.glassthimble.com/    ... although i've never been there myself, as I'm on the OSU campus and have no car Cry

There's Quilttrends on Boardwalk St near the Continent in Columbus and one called Quintessence Fabrics at Spring Creek Center.

Oooh, I was wondering about the Glass Thimble -- it's right by my house, but I've never made it inside. I'm glad to see it has lots 'o' stuff -- my boyfriend's mom is trying to make a confirmation dress for his niece and was having a difficult time finding the right fabric in Dayton. I'll point her to the Glass Thimble.

glass thimble is amazing, but only if you're looking for calico cotton/quilting fabric.  they don't really have any "fashion" fabric.  my mom made me a quilt for my high school graduation and we spent HOURS going through all the rooms picking out the fabric.
