Notions General Sewing Store Fabric
Current Tags :
Have you bought anything from this store? If yes were the prices competitive?
Yes, tons of fabric! The prices start @ $0.99 The majority of the fabric is $2.65 and most are 54-60 inches wide. I find most of my knits here. The zippers are amazing. There are TONS of colors, sizes, & kinds.
Fabrix has been in its San Francisco location since 1993. Fabrix features off-price surplus and closeout fabric and trims from Designers, Manufacturers and Mills.
Were the sales people polite and friendly?
Yes, the sales people are very nice. The store is quite small, so everyone ends up chatting while waiting or looking. all fabric is on long rolls stacked on tables, but if you are looking for something in particular, ask & they know what they currently have.
How would you rate the quality of the item this store sells?
Mid-range. The fabric ranges from very inexpensive to decent. You are not going to find very very fine fabrics here. I also get what I call my "knit muslins" here. The rolls are so big & so inexpensive that I buy a large amount when I find a weight I like & sew "test subjects" before I cut into a really good fabric piece.
How was your shopping experience. Is there anything you did not like about this store?
I love going here. I try to go at least once a month. It changes every time you go! You do have to dig a bit. But the good news is that if you find something & it doesn't look like enough, there are probably 3 or 4 exact same rolls in the store.
Would you recommend this store to others?
I tell everyone about this place. Easy parking, nice quiet neighborhood.
Any other comments you would like to add?
* There is normally about 25,000 yards at store to choose from.
* A truck load of fabric (at least 2000 yards) is delivered every week.
* Because of the way we buy fabric it is not reorderable so be sure and get enough as it may be out of stock if you need more for your project.
