I've never been to their Potomac Mills Mall store and was looking forward to checking it out. So, I finally made it down there this week for some shopping - and G Street wasn't there! It's boarded up with some 'Coming Soon' signs for another store. I've been to their Centreville, VA store a few times in the last year or so since I started learning to sew, but since there's not much else around that store to combine trips with, it's hard to justify the trip. When I got home I looked up their website and that location is no longer listed. I'm so disappointed. Does anyone know when or why they closed that location?

I never knew G street had a Potomac Mills location - and I've been to the mall there many times. Wow, can't believe I missed that! Sorry to hear they have moved on.

I like the Fall's Street location. Then you can hit G Street, JoAnn's, and Hancock Fabrics in Alexandria.

I believe the G street at Potomac Mills has been closed about a year. The G street in Rockville, MD on Montrose Ave. is my favorite. This is the location that opened when they moved from G Street from DC. They have the best selection of everything. For quality fabric in the DC area, they are a must to visit!

Mid-May. They raised the rent when their lease came due, G Street declined to renew. At the time, I was told they were going to see if their Centreville store picked up sales, then decide if they were going to look for a new location in Woodbridge. I've lost touch since moving, but a few of the employees were planning to open a quilt shop in Woodbridge. They were looking at space in Tackett's Mill I think.

The G-Street by Home Depot is pretty good....it's off route 7, I think, in the seven corners area. Around the back, there's JoAnne's which is cluttered but you can find a lot of nice quilt fabrics and good sales on the decorator prints.
