Her shop stocks an impressive (and well-organized) selection of printed cottons intended for both home decor or other craft/fashion projects. Marimekko and Amy Butler Designs (including patterns) are essential elements of Elmwood Village Fabrics' offerings. However Sandy does seek other smaller fabric collections from specialized vendors who don't focus on the chain stores. After a few minutes of glancing at her amazing range of patterns, it is surprising that companies such as Diane von Furstenburg, Kate Spade or Dwell Studio haven't hired Sandy as a fabric consultant. Her taste and eye for dynamic fabric is incredible. Perhaps the best attribute of Elmwood Village Fabrics is affordability— the majority of the fabrics are priced at less that $16/yard.
