Man oh Man do I love Fabric!! There is something about how it really speaks to me! The touch, the smell, the eye candy! Ahhhhh! I need to go fabric shopping like right now. In December, I went to Nashville for a work conference and I had a little time left on the last day, so I did a little research and found Textile Fabrics (471 Craighead St, Nashville, TN 37204).
When looking up reviews of the store, the main complaint was that it was really expensive but everyone said it was perfect for special occasions and that the staff was fabulous. I figured I’d check it out anyway because I love to support local businesses and I’m sure my stash could use some more company in the closet!
Upon arriving I was just in awe: so much beauty before my eyes. I wanted to touch everything.
But the reviews were correct, it was really expensive (especially since I need more fabric like I need a hole in my head). I so wished I had been there shopping for something special because I am sure I would have found the perfect thing.
They had all kinds of fabric for clothing: stretch knits, corduroy, sequins, swim suit material, and the most gorgeous silks! They also had a great selection of sewing notions! I absolutely loved the button selection!
But Best of ALL~ the staff was truly AHMAAAAZINGG!!! They were helpful, friendly, and you could tell they really love their jobs and SEWING! It’s no wonder they have been in business for 40 years! It was such a treat to talk with them while I was there.
I almost missed a secret remnant room: in the very back, they had remnants of all kinds of fabrics and they were very affordable! I ended up leaving with one light weight toile fabric, 2 medium weight printed knits, and some fabulous emerald green Velveteen fabric that I can’t wait to use to make a winter skirt.
Bottom Line: Great Fabric Shop, Great Service! Just go with a little extra money to spend!
Here’s me with the staff after we chatted for 30 minutes! Happy Fabric Shopping Ya’ll!
