America has enjoyed a long tradition of textile manufacturing, from Betsy Ross cross-stitching the Constitution to Neil Armstrong knitting the Eagle lunar lander. Continue the tradition of our forefathers with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $80 worth of fabric, materials, and ready-made wares at Fabulous Fabric.
Fabulous Fabric equips artisans with a wide variety of quality fabrics, trim, and custom-made furniture. The friendly staff bestows each customer with personal guidance, so no sewer need navigate the depths of yardage-thread ratios alone. Beautify living rooms and retro underground lairs with throw pillows made from orange forest-printed silk ($27/yd.) or bedeck loveseats in the striking flowers of a Beatrice Black print ($20/yd.). Pink-and-cream checkered silk ($60/yd.) serves as a striking background for ottoman checkers tournaments. Ready-made panels ($55–$120 depending on fabric and length) give decorators the opportunity to embellish rooms without picking up a needle or stealing a gold-plated egg.
Just because people are savvy with a sewing machine doesn't mean they have eyes for fashion. Luckily, Fabulous Fabric's fashionable staff is more than happy to help customers by doing the design work for them. Whether guests are shopping for new curtains or looking for a fabric to cover a chair or drape around a regal living-room statue, the staff will happily help them shift through the endless bolts of fine-quality home-decor fabrics to choose one that best fits the job. From classic florals, stripes, and textured linens to trendy geometric designs and monochromatic animal prints, the store stocks fabrics to suit any taste or personal style, and there's even a selection of kid-friendly fabrics to give bedrooms and nurseries a playful pop of color. Flat-braid trims lend a finishing touch to DIY pillows and other projects, and those who prefer to leave the needle-and-thread work to a professional peruse a selection of colorful, ready-made curtain panels or speak to the staff about commissioning custom furniture.
