i'm relatively new to la, and i'm curious about this 'garment district'. i've been to website and there are a ton of stores--my mind goes nuts thinking about going into each one of them. does anyone have any recommendations for good, cheap fabric? right now i'm specifically looking for some type of light upholstery fabric to make slipcovers out of, but i love just browsing.

any ideas would help!! thanks so much!

Right off the bat I would recommend 2 places. On Maple is Michael Levines, they have 2 stores across the street from each other and one of them is specifically for upholstery types of fabric. The other is exactly one street over from this one and is called Home Fabrics - its on Wall street. They are both very big stores- I am not saying they are the cheapest but its a great starting point and intoduction to the area. Be aware you can't really negotiate the prices there- all the other little stores around there you can though.
good luck!

i'm probably making the trip downtown next week sometime, so i'll definitely check out those places that you recommended. i'm glad they don't negotiate anyway... i usually fail miserably in that type of shopping!

thanks again Smiley

I am visiting the Garmet District this weekend (I live in Seattle). Has anyone ever seen yarn sold there?  I'd LOVE to find yarn.

michael levines started carrying more than just lion brand yarn, but its just a normal prices and not a very extensive selection.
