"We at Discount Fabrics have chosen to close our doors temporarily in efforts to help stop the spread of COVID-19."

Here are the positives of living “shelter in place,” closets are getting organized, sewing projects completed, and sewing machines are getting TLC maintenance.
We look forward to walking back into Discount Fabrics.
Do you sell 5 oz poplin which was suggested as a substitute for 'trigger cloth' which made great tablecloths and chair covers for outside? Thank you

[10/29/19]   Hi all! Berkeley Store has some street construction going on at Murray as well as Folger. May we suggest 67th or possibly Ashby as a sub for parking? We are also allowing customers to park in our back driveway today 10/29 which is an opened grey gate next to the construction work. Take Murray from Hollis and pass the road closed sign and make a left into our yard from Murray. Sorry for any inconvenience. 10/11/2019
