Favorite fabric stores

Britex Fabrics
146 Geary Street
San Francisco, CA 94108
(415) 392-2910

Britex is one of those stores you will either love or hate. It has a fabulous selection of different types of fabric, buttons, and trims as well as a good selection of remnants. The prices here are quite expensive but the quality of goods is excellent. The sales staff can be quite snobby but I have also found wonderful, knowledgeable employees. If you are looking for something special, you can't do much better than Britex.

Keepsake Quilting

Probably the biggest quilting store in the United States, Keepsake Quilting is unbelievable and a bit overwhelming. Their store is huge, their staff friendly and helpful. They offer fun quilting contests as well. Thankfully if you do not live nearby, you can order through their website or excellent catalog. If you like cotton fabric, or need quilting supplies, they probably have everything you need.

I love this site. The fabrics are gorgeous and many are nice enough to hang on the wall. Their order staff is quite pleasant and knowledgeable and their deliveries timely. If you like contemporary fabric, especially cottons, this site is for you.

Craft Supplies

Dharma Trading Company

Dharma is a great place to purchase fabric dye, fabric paints and pre-made plain garments to decorate. Their prices are quite good, especially for clothing and they also offer kits and starter sets. Their store in San Rafael has a good selection of yarn for knitting and crocheting as well.
