Schoolhouse Fabrics has a vast selection of all,things related to sewing and upholstery displayed over three floors and an adjacent building of an historic school house. Those not in to sewing will still appreciate the historic venue and extensive assortment of goods.

With three full floors of fabrics (and a separate building in the back for upholstery fabrics), I've never seen more variety and options. People travel from miles around to visit Schoolhouse Fabrics.
