Threads. If you are looking for fabric and don’t want to pay and arm and a leg, there are a few places in town that stock large amounts of fabrics at warehouse prices.

Harry Zarin has the largest selection we know of everything from velvets, to silks, to cottons, to polyesters for if you want to make curtains, cover a headboard, pillow cases, you name it. You have to pick through a lot of rolls to find what you want, but it is more fun that way.

If you don’t want to do everything yourself, Zarin offers upholstering and tailoring service, so you can choose your fabric and they will pick up your couch and recover it or make curtains for you.

Zarin’s warehouse is upstairs, while downstairs they offer higher service with new fabric books, trimming, pillow inserts, foam, window treatments, curtain rods, etc.

NYMag says they buy“direct from the mills and elsewhere to offer steep discounts on luxurious designer fabrics.”

Citysearch gives them an 8.5 rating! Whoopee, that’s informative.
