Wow! Our stock guy, Reggie, found a "Find" in the upstairs stockroom. Shirt-weight pure cotton fabric. 58-60" wide. Dress or blouse... I would suggest underlining it as a dress. I see some really light weight fun in this fabric.

This quilt fabric makes me think of "The Hills are Alive" from The Sound of Music. Just because of the notes going up and down like hills! It is a nice musical cotton.

Silks, Silks, Silks, and a few more barrels of Silks. We have them hanging on the rolls, but we had to put many in a barrel, or 6, to keep them on the sales floor. Come in and check out the multitude of different styles and colors we have on the sales floor. We still have more to get out. Needless to say: All very well priced!

We want to be sure you all know that - whether you choose to wear them or not - we have all the supplies still needed to make face masks. Multiple kinds & colors of elastics, nose bars, cord stops, fabrics, linings, threads, and interfacings. Did I mention elastics? Soft elastics. Very soft.

Water-repellent qualities of waxed canvas have been known for many years. Extremely popular in the 1900s, it has now seen a resurgence. People are looking for an eco-friendly water-resistant material, and it has good looks. This cotton material develops creases and wrinkles over time, like an old leather jacket. Waxed canvas is strong and very durable. It's ideal for backpacks, aprons, jackets, dog gear, saddle, tote, & storage bags, outdoor projects like deck chairs, awnings, and tents.

We got in two palettes the other day that were sent - and are - from the NYC Fashion District. A lot of Nice Fashion Fabrics. And what do I choose to show, but a good quality gray Sherpa. We have been trying to get some good Sherpa into the store for a while now. Yes, it will cost more than the sale-table Sherpa, but a much better quality. I know it is still really warm outside right now, but definitely come in to see this fabric. Fall and Winter are on their way.😉

Sheer Fun or Sheer Delight. It is up to you to decide. Beautiful to basic. Well priced as always, of course. All at least 118" wide (or in length, as the case may be). So, run it yardage wise across the window with no seams to break up the flow. Ahhh, don't you just love re-decorating with something new and different. The swirlies are so fun.

I’m getting this back soon from my long arm quilter. Thank you Fabric Place Basement for the awesome fabrics!
A neighbor, looking for a 4 ft zipper, was referred to "that other store." Here's my response:
Went there yesterday with a friend for the first time. It was amazing!! Overwhelming selection, great prices, clean and best of all, an amazing staff! Thank you, we will be back!!!
Lovely stuff. I’m waiting for some new African fabric to finish a project. I’ll keep checking. Stay warm and safe, Everyone.
Hello Fabric Place Basement! I bought and paid for 6 yards of this fabric yesterday afternoon, but it was cut 5.5 inches short! Oh no! I’m sure it was just a mistake. Can you please hold the remaining fabric on the bolt so I can get my 6 yards???? Plus I’d like to buy an additional 3 yards since I have to come back now anyways. Do you have 9 yards left??? Thanks for your help!
Do you have this fabric?
Good afternoon I looking for burgundy and gold cotton fabric
Are you open again?
Hello, I am looking to connect with woman on your staff that does upholstery. Is it possible for you to share her information with me? She has done work for me in the past.
Hi I would like to make an appointment to shop. How do we do this?
Oh my goodness! Thanks to Million Mask Challenge, I just visited the Alexandria store. To be honest, it took my breath away when I walked in. It reminded me of G-Street Fabrics in their "hay days". Their selection, is pure joy. Their staff are so helpful and knowledgeable. I have found a new "happy place"! Messaging them through their FB page was easy and response quick. Make an appointment and prepare to enjoy.
So excited for my appointment on Monday!! Can’t wait to pick up more supplies
