there's a rather small one on pine on capitol hill (near the honeyhole sandwich place) that has some cool stuff, and nancy's sewing basket on queen anne has some good stuff. joann's is in ballard, too.

there's a huge store in portland www.fabricdepot.com.  every other month they have all fabrics 40% off.  i make a trip down there about 2-4 times a year.  it's worth it.  there is also a pacific fabric outlet store near qwest field.  i think it's on 4th ave.  after the post office.

i went to a quilting store in lakewood last weekend and they have a good selection of japanese fabrics that are reasonable priced.

i think i've visited all the fabric stores in the seattle areas.  oh, there is a craft store in kent that sells all of their fabrics around 3.99...everything is in flatfold so you have to search.  they have new selections every week.  let me know if you need more info.

Have you been to In the Beginning or New beginnings? I am not a big fabric/sewer but MIL is... so we have been to this place a couple of times, it seems as though it is a quilter's paradise! MIL gets fabrics for her water color quilts and also for kids stuff. It is on Lake City way on the west end, if you get off of I-5 on the Lake City exit, and go about uhh, I think 3-5 blocks it's on the North side, or left side on Lake City way... I am sure they are listed, but I really get inspired to learn to sew more than a straight line when I go there!!!

Stitches is my FAVORITE fabric shop ever! They also have yarns and embroidery stuff too. Be prepared to spend some money though. I always spend at least $40 when I go (But maybe Joann's spoils me with all those 40% off coupons and I'm just not used to spending full price on fabrics!). Everyone should visit. I always get a little overwhelmed when I first walk in because I just want to buy everything.

In Lakewood?!!!  I used to go Uijamaya (sp?) but they have since stopped carrying any.  Would you mind confirming where?  I would be SO grateful!

Reminder:   Pacific Fabrics' outlet store is on 4th in SoDo (ok, here it is, if you are too lazy to look it up:  2230 4th Avenue South Seattle WA 98134 206-628-6237).  Quality, you have to look for here, but you WILL find it cheap when you find it (and you usually will).  The help is always busy but fairly friendly.  Be prepared to look on your own.

Thanks!  I checked the google maps for this and it looks like it's by that designer store on the corner of Eastlake and Harvard.  Now I have a reason to go to that store too!

Ah, how I miss the Pacific Fabrics that was only just 15 minutes away in Issaquah! 

Now I live in Wenatchee - the black hole of good fabric stores... JoAnn's is here, but.........

Found a great Japanese fabric store that someone else was talking about!!!!  OMG!!!   So great if you like asian fabrics.  That's all it is.  It even has vintage kimono pieces that you can kind of see through the pack to know what you're getting ($15 - $25).  It's  www.shiboridragon.com and @11124 Gravelly Lake Drive SW Lakewood, WA 98499.  They have all kinds of patterns, stencils and classes.  It's quite a drive for me so I can't go there as much as I'd like.  I only spent $12.00 today but could have spent $100.00 easily.  If you like the asian thing, do NOT go there unless you have money!!!  I got a yard of these really cool dragonflies but wanted SO much more.

Good Heavens!  JoAnn's is definately better over there than in Eastern WA, but it is certainly not the ONLY place. 
I am kind of bitter over here in Wenatchee that JoAnn's really is my only option for non-quilting fabric stores.

This fabric store is so amazing!!! Fabrics from all over the world and you will find them on rolls place on tables where you make your choice and they cut right there. Lots of silk,wool,cotton and laces and stretch and a notion area you may only find in India. The prices are fanatstic!!! I have never seen anything over $15.00 and that was coating wool.

There is a really cute fabric store in Wallingford called Fabric Crush that has a lot of bright, mod-ish prints, Amy Butler sort of stuff and fun vintage remakes.  I went up there the other day to visit with a friend and found totally cute fabric for an apron that I have promised her.  And there is a cool looking yarn shop right next door.
