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!!!

Please use the Help Desk for moderator questions.  I'm not currently available full-time.  Thanks!

I'd love to send you some hand spun for a poppet!

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.
