Wow these are some great suggestions! I know what I'm doing this weekend! I've seen Virginia Marti because my bf used to live in Lakewood right across from there, but he never wanted to go in. And I used to live near Charlie's, I can't believe I never found it! Well that was before I started sewing.

If you're looking for designer fabrics the Polka Dot Pincushion in Richfield has Amy Butler, Michael Miller, etc. They have some great stuff but they also have that calico-y stuff too. So you might have to hunt a little but I know they have it, I've seen it!

I just discovered that Ben Franklin in Oberlin has a small but decent fabric section in the back of the store. It's all extremely affordable too. I think the most expensive fabric I saw was $4.99 a yard. the fabrics I bought were all $2.29 and $2.79 a yard.

Does anyone know of any places on the west/east side border?  Looking more for Seven Hills, Brecksville, Broadview Heights, Parma, Middleburg Heights area.

Something other than the usual Joann.

I saw a the ultimate material for a purse/diaper bag I wanted to make and did not buy it right away.  BIG MISTAKE!  I have been to all 3 Joann's in the area several times each and they are not re-stocking it.  So I am on the hunt for something new.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

It sounds like we live in the same general area, and there are no good fabric stores.  I did see a place called Quilter's Source on State Road in Parma, but I haven't stopped in yet.  You could always try Joanns.com.

I checked out Quilter's Showcase on State Rd in Parma.  They were very nice.  They carry mostly quilting fabric (hence the name).  I did notice they have a huge selection of batiks, a generous selection of black and white mix and they have clearance fabric.  Nothing really super modern although I did find a funky flower print in the scrap pile.  They also teach classes in a huge room with quilt lined walls.  WOW, some of these women are extremely talented.  Hours - MWF 10-5, TTh 10-8, Sat 10-4.
