My husband and I are going to skip the border (with passports in hand!) and go to Watertown and Syracuse. I've never been. Any fabric stores that you could point out to me? Thanks.

In three years all I've found is JoAnn's in Syracuse unless you just want to quilt. Then there are a few shops in neighboring areas. I don't know how good they are.

If you want to drive another 1 1/2 hours to Rochester there are still some indie fabric stores. Patricia's in E. Rochester, One in Irondequoit(can't think of the name) and Sew Creative in Fairport. The usual JoAnne too.

The store in Irondequoit is Jackie Lynn's. I briefly described all 3 in this thread last year. Depending on how much time you have, and assuming you're heading south from the 1000 Islands area, you might consider checking out Threadneedle Fabrics in the Burlington Vermont area. I visited the shop last month and was impressed with the wide selection for the size of the shop--it was essentially all fashion fabric, which I think is a rarity these days.

And I hope you'll be checking out a few wineries (NAYY) while you're here--
Seneca Lake, which has quite a few wineries, is close to Syracuse.

Have fun! Kim

There is a very nice but small fabric store 20 minutes east of Syracuse in Cazenovia named Cazenovia Fabrics. They specialize in Formal wear fabrics . It is on the main street in a quaint little 'Downtown".

I live in Syracuse.

Please check out Feminine Touch Fabrics on West Fayette St. in the Delavan Art Gallery complex. It is downtown, close to Armory Square -- just down the road from Kitty Hoynes, Irish pub and restaurant. They have lots of garment fabric, carry Kwik Sew patterns and Gutterman thread. They have lots of trims including lace trims. They also sell vintage patterns. It's a big place.

The Fabric Mill is in Jamesville on Rt 173, they sell mostly homedec but you can find some interesting things on their discount table.

Herrons Fabrics is in Fulton (north of Syracuse in Oswego County--take 481) They have cottons and some garment fabric.

Cazenovia Fabrics in Cazenovia. They carry special occasion fabric and I think some cottons as well. I have not been there in a long time, we have a planned trip there in July. Also, while in Cazenovia, which is a lovely little village, visit the Cazenovia Fiber Arts Gallery.

We have 2 Joann's, one in Fayetteville (super) and the other in Liverpool (smaller). There are two quilt shops-- Mission Rose on Rt. 11, North Syracuse and Calico Gals which is in the Canal Barn (down the road from the Erie Canal park in Fayetteville . Another fabric store, lots of dolls and cotton, some knits at Little Ladies and Lace in Camillus.

Off the beaten path:
If you have a GPS, try SpringLake Fabrics in Savannah, it is run by Mennonite/Amish types. It is out there but worth the trip as you can find some good deals there. Also, farther east, Oneida-- Cottons Etc. Paula Schultz is the owner and she runs a group called "Runway Addicts" giving challenges like Project Runway and every Fall they have a fashion show. She carries lots of cottons and other types of fabrics. Patchwork Plus in Skaneateles has a large selection of quilting cotton fabrics.
I don't know about Watertown.

Wow, after three years I didn't know about this place. I'll be there this weekend.

Hey, Feminine Touch Fabrics moved to 2714 Erie Boulevard probably about 6 months ago. www.ftfabrics.com They are super nice and the prices are reasonable.
They are also two doors away from the best Thai cuisine 'Erawan's' in CNY in my humble opinion. Check it out while there.

Cazenovia Fabrics no longer specializes in fine fabrics-- concentrates on quilting fabrics now.

I second Mean Sara on the Feminine Touch fabric store. They have a new shop on Erie Blvd, about 2 shops down from Syracuse Bicycle, across from Sam's. They carry Kwik Sew patterns. They also have reasonable prices. I just purchased two pieces from there I am excited about sewing up.

The shop in Fulton is closed.

There is a quilt shop in Oswego that is Calico Gals 2.

If you wander down towards Ithaca there is Sew Green which is in their downtown mall. You may find some vintage stuff there.
