makeOne of the first things I was trying to find when I hit town was a good fabric store. You know–one that has all the cool stuff that the vanilla shoppers at JoAnn’s were afraid of, so it got sold to the secondary market and is available to the über-creative. The one where all the Latin ladies shop when they are making their over-the-top confirmation dresses, like my old fav Sewfisticated in the slums of Cambridge, MA. Great stuff at killer prices. Well, this isn’t that exactly, but it’s the best source I’ve found for bulk fabric at rock bottom prices. Need to dress a poolside vista with yards and yards of billowy white fabric? Doing a little amateur dramatics and need cheap black fabric for set-dressing? Feeding a hundred, and want 50 yards of fuchsia organza for table cloths? Go see Arnold, and you can buy bolts and bolts for between $1.00 and $5.00 a yard. This isn’t the place for fancy sparkle, but on solids he can’t be beat, and he has some pretty good deals on fur. He also has some good looking upholstery and decorator fabrics for $10.00 a yard. This is definitely the place to go when you want to make a big statement with a small wallet.
