B&J Fabrics is a must-stop-shop for sewers of all kinds. Whether you're an amateur just looking to re-upholster your first seat cushion, or a professional interior designer looking to outfit a client's home, B&J will be there for you with a seemingly endless supply of fabric...
B & J Fabrics carries an extensive collection of fabrics (in the thousands!) organized, as New York Magazine> says, "first by type (silks, Liberty of London cottons, wool tweeds), then by print theme (geometric, animal, floral), and finally by color—all handily labeled with price and width..."
AT readers say:
Beautiful selection, excellent prices, in a perfectly-lit showroom with VERY HELPFUL staff. It's a totally different vibe.
Not an inexpensive store, but you get what you pay for every time -- and their staff are marvelous. They're used to dealing with fashion students, so they don't laugh if you blanch at prices -- and you may wind up deciding the investment is worth all your effort. Very different from Mendel Fabrics on Hester Street.
