I just started grad school in the Cleveland area.  Anyone have good recommendations for fabric stoers?  The Joann's near me has tons of stuff, but it's all very calico-y.  Any ideas for vintage fabrics or for some of the neat new designer stuff out there?

check out Flower Child on Clifton Blvd.  They have some great vintage finds and I am always checking out any thrift stores i can find.

Hi,
I, too, would like to find some better ways to buy fabric then at the chain fabric stores.  I know that Unique Thrift, on Fulton, has some cool fabric, often.
Anyone else have suggestions or ideas?
Thanks,
Jen

Virginia Marti on Detroit in Lakewood has a store---haven't been in there for years but they are good for designer fabrics and notions. 

Haven't sewn in quite some time but New York Fabrics used to be in Parma.  Mostly home decorator fabric. 

I always found good stuff at estate sales.

I just discovered Charlie's on Noble. I spent 2 days in that store and could spend 2 more looking through all the fabric and fabric books.

no kidding, where is that??  i just discovered Schindler's on Lorain and broke my bank account on 10 yards of suede for an upholstery project.  i literally went around touching everything.  the staff, by the way, is fabulous.  they'll look at you funny if you're young, but once you talk to them they'll shake off any pretensions they had and chat design with you.

It's right on Noble, near monticello, across form the gas startion. I think there is a bakery on one corner and a CVS on the other.

Flower Child is heaven!
Also, there are tons on thrift stores in and around Cleveland. Like the Unique on Lorain near Fulton in Ohio City. There is a St. Vincent DePaul on Biddulph near Ridge Rd. Also, try my fave, Value World (not City) in Brookpark in the plaza across from JoAnn.
