Have you bought anything from this store? Yes This has the finest fashion apparel fabrics, notions + trims I've found in the Dallas, TX area. Also carry independent pattern lines, many classes, + a a knowledgeable, helpful staff. If yes were the prices competitive? Yes, unfortunately to get hard-to-find fine fabrics +/or designer label fabrics you have to pay for it. It's comparable to Mood NYC's online store but I like to touch my materials. For Ex: Silks run about $30/yd., Cottons, Knits, + Polyesters are about $20/yd. Then the special stuff: Stretch lace 52"wide machine made for just $20/yd can go up to French Alencon Laces for $150/yd. and even heavily beaded or sequined fabrics costing more such as 41"wide Scalloped Gradiented Bugle Beaded + Sequined on a Tulle background $330/yd. But the expensive fabrics + trims are exceptional. I haven't been able to find those kinds of products at this quality elsewhere for better prices. They'll ship worldwide. This is where you go if you're making your own bridal gown (or having someone make it for you, including Fabrique! which offers this service too). This is where you go when you are sewing your babies christening gown or other heirloom pieces. This is where you go if you love quality fabrics and unusual trims, embellishments + notions Sale area in back everything is $5/yd. Were the sales people polite and friendly? Yes, all their employees have backgrounds in the fashion industry along with excellent sewing skills + seem very knowledgeable + very willing to share their experience. How would you rate the quality of the item this store sells? Finest quality of fabrics, trims + notions I've seen in person. How was your shopping experience. Is there anything you did not like about this store? I only wish they carried MORE of everything + had another location closer to my house! Yes, it would be awesome if it were less expensive - I often go here for inspiration, then have to search high and low for a cheaper option because I cannot justify the cost for my hobby. Would you shop here again? Yes, they are the only ones (except online) where I can find certain items but I like to see and feel my materials. Plus, I learn something every time I'm in their store. Would you recommend this store to others? Yes! and I have. Any other comments you would like to add? Offer classes + $10 demonstrations. Classes start at very beginning + cover everything from sewing with knits, silks, lace, + matching plaids, to constructing corsets, bridal veils, to creating your own couture Chanel-inspired jacket.
