Hello just wondering if anyone knows any Fabric stores in or around RI besides the many Joanns scattered about...

     There is a Fabric Place on Route 2 in Warwick (http://www.fabricplace.com/scripts (http://www.fabricplace.com/scripts)), a place called Ryco in Lincoln (http://www.rycotrim.com (http://www.rycotrim.com)), and finally...my favorite...Lorraine Fabrics in Pawtucket.  They do not have a web site, but they do have a Bargain Loft upstairs where all fabric is $1.99 a yard, or less (some of it is awful, but you can always find a few really great buys, like the reptile print silk that I found...).  If you need any additional info, just let me know. 
     By the way, I happened upon your site quite a while ago and I love your stuff (especially the leg warmers!).  Good luck with all your future endeavors.

Their is a small fabric store on Rt 5 in Cranston, near Stop and Shop.  I think it's called All About Fabric... or something like that... Has anyone ever been there or heard anything about it?  I drive past all the time but have never had time to actually stop....

Sew Nice fabrics in Portsmouth and Fabric Connection in Middletown are pretty good Sew Nice has a pretty decent selection of prints and cheaper fabrics, while Fabric Connection has more expensive stuff..mostly stuff for upholstery and drapery and such. They have a bomb scarp bin, though in the back!

Hi-

There is a great little store on Atwood Avenue in Cranston called "Just Fabrics."  Don't let the size of the store fool you.  They have a GREAT selection of fabrics at extremely reasonable prices and the stock is constantly changing.  They also truly know their stock, so if you're looking for something specific, they are a great help in giving suggestions or directing you.

My daughter was just telling me about this fabric, quilt, store on Metacom Avenue in Bristol, RI...  They have alot of nice fabrics, like Micheal Miller, and Amy Butler prints, etc.  Not sure about how their prices run.
I do like Ryco.  Their fabric is awesome and OMG, all the ribbons...

I agree with shellyjx. Just Fabrics is the BEST!!!! They are next to 2nd Time Around Sports. The selection and prices are the best around. Lorraine's and Jo-Ann's don't compare!
