I worked at this store for several years. It's in an old historic building that was once a hotel right across the street/park from the (Amtrak) station in town. It's been a sewing tourist destination for years.... Really sad to see it go....

You'll find Modas, Hoffmans, batiks, and all the big name fabric companies, present and past.

$2.00/yd is amazing....
I'm afraid to go because I think I'll spend too much....
But if someone wants me to get something for them, please PM me or post here and I'll send you my email address. I'm sure we can work something out....

Time to stock up on backings and basics and particular colors that are currently in short supply....

Too bad they didn't move into a Web site! We'd all be shopping there lol

So sad to see it just go down the tubes :-( I see my favorite sewing center (machine repair) wondering why they are not competing, online is the now/future and has been for a while.

Thanks Good for the info! *shhh* just bought MORE stuff after we got here AND after my purchases in Effingham! Darn I got to take a 12-step for fabric somehow

Yes, I wish they had gone online too, but the owners story is long and complicated and I'm sure that I don't even know most of it.

One of the neatest things in the store was the lace window treatments from that place in Iowa that did/does the European style lace curtains.

There was also a lot of really, really, really nice wedding laces and lots of prom dress trims, etc. I'm not sure if this stuff has already been sold, or if it's currently available and reduced in price.

I'm guessing there were at least 10,000 bolts of fabric at one point. I guess I'd better go in and check things out so I can give you a better description of what's currently available.
