New Rainbow Fabric Store

A great way to start out the weekend! Our Saturday outing began with a first-time visit to New Rainbow Fabrics located at 612 W. Roosevelt Road, Chicago.
We were the only customers so we had the store to ourselves except for the owner and two employees who greeted us and were very nice.
Here are a few pictures of the inside of the store.
The fabric selection ranges from silk dupioni, african laces, woolens, cottons, stretch jerseys, just about everything. The prices are great!










I think the lowest price fabric was $3.99. There was probably something a little lower priced in fabrics, but actually the 45" linings were $1.99/yd in lots & lots of colors. The 60" linings are $2.99/yd. I saw interfacing for $1.29/yd. There are no patterns here, just fabric. So if you go, you need to have an idea of what yardage you'll need for various projects. They have cone thread and buttons (I only saw three types) that are sold individually. My daughter was trying to grab my granddaughter just as I snapped that photo. (BTW-Granddaughter had a ball walking/running the length of the store!)









Here are a few pieces of the fabrics we picked up while there. We will be going again very soon! Their website is http://www.newrainbows.com/









Vogue Fabrics is right across the street and Fishman's Fabrics is around the corner. We didn't go to either one on this day. We've been to both before. It was a good day!

How nice to get to go to those awesome fabric shops. I decided to go back through your blog and look at all your sewing and it really got me excited about doing some of my own. All the things you have made are beautiful. Keep up the good work.

I am so envious of anyone have a fabric store to go to besides a JoAnn's. Lovely fabric.
