Colorado Fabrics

Colorado Fabrics
October 2017
Marilyn and I stopped at Colorado Fabrics and browsed the store. The building is huge, and the store is well stocked with luscious fabrics - wool, cotton, knit, woven, drapery, upholstery, brocade, tulle, satin, and much more.

I loved all the wool inside the front door and spent a few minutes admiring the colors and patterns. I haven't seen this much wool yardage in decades.
cute woolen cottages
Wouldn't this make a cute throw for the sofa?

The center of the store housed the notions section - zippers, buttons, fasteners, webbing, thread, scissors, trims, etc.

One end of the building had a classroom with sewing machines and tables. Near the quilting fabric section was a room with two or three longarm quilting machines.

They do not have an online store, but one of the clerks said they will send small swatches of fabrics, if someone has a specific request.

If I were a serious seamstress or needed a specific fabric or notion, this store would be on my radar.

  3. That is an enormous store. I think you are right about the wool fabric with the houses; it would make a nice throw.

  4. Wow! Just wow! I think I could wander around in that store for a long, long time. Too bad they don't have an online store.
    Blessings always, Betsy

  5. Looks like a fun place to go. I was at a similar shop in a Minneapolis suburb last fall - S.R. Harris. It was a blast to see the wools and other specialty fabrics and notions that we don't see in most fabric stores anymore.

  9. Oh, I love all the colors and textures. I would probably go button bonkers. My mother would spend the rent money there. LOL

  11. What a fabulous store. You don't see too many stores with a wonderful selection of lots of different types of fabrics. I know I have several really nice pieces of wool in my collection. I don't think they are going to be made into anything any time soon... some are since, gulp, high school! YIKES.
