Sewing is like tattooing—it requires a needle, looks best when done with a steady hand, and is usually performed by grandmothers. Craft something meaningful with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of fabrics, sewing supplies, and more at The Needle Shop Fabric Store in Bucktown.
The Needle Shop threads together high-end and DIY designer fabrics to create a patchwork of unrivaled textiles unraveled from their quaint and able corner store. Bedeck drab sofas, worn ottomen, and other thrift store finds with an Etsuko Furuya helicopter pattern ($16.50/yard), which weaves together cotton, linen, and a quirky blueprint. The Michael Miller bicycle pattern ($9.50/yard) is perfect for dressing gams in a sassy skirt or draping beloved lawn ornaments in exquisite elfenkleids. The Needle Shop also stocks supplies such as needles, thread, patterns, and books filled with the knowledge and techniques needed to DIY any project and avoid the dreaded closed featherstitch—a hexed stitch that causes wearers to be tickled to madness.
- The fabrics and materials sold at the store are out of this world!!! Very cool and hip, animal prints, whimsical prints......anything that you could want. I have been to other stores and their customer service and fabrics just don't measure up. – Denise L., Yelp
- I feel like a kid in a candy store when I step in here to look around. – Laura H., Yelp
