Great Selection, friendly sales staff and classes What more could you ask for? Unlike the big mall places, this store has just fabric - simple, fancy, what have you, with a large quilting frabric room, silks, upholstery, and more. The best is the large selection of patterns, incluing the standard Vogue and Butterick, as well as patterns by local designers and artists. You can even take classes from some of these talented folks.
Stonemountain & Daughter Fabric Yet another of my wife's favorites, Stonemountain and Daughter carries what is likely THE best and largest selection of silks, linens, wools, rayons, and cottons in the Oakland/Berkeley area. It's a large store that is positively jam-packed with fabrics and accessories. This is a great place for quilting fabrics and supplies. They also have a huge selection of buttons. The staff is friendly, helpful, and knowledgable. Perhaps best of all, this store offers various sewing and crafting courses on a very regular basis.
This is in downtown Berkeley, so parking can be an issue, but it's only a few blocks from BART.
If you don't find what you're looking for at Stonemountain and Daughter, you'll be hard-pressed to find it in this area at all.
Enormous Selection of Fabrics and Classes Located in downtown Berkeley, 2518 Shattuck. Wow. This place has an unbelievably enormous selection of cottons, velvets, silks, african fabrics, japanese prints, specialty buttons, and even a limited selection of cascade brand yarn. You wouldn't expect to find the warehouse-like amount of space they have in downtown Berkeley, but there it is, as convenient as can be. They also offer a wide variety of classes, for the novice through expert levels, and even knitting classes. The staff is congenial and clearly enjoy working there. It is a family-owned business which began in 1919, so they must be doing something right, eh?
Fabric store with sewing classes in Berkeley Hi Jon,
This is a great shop and it's in the East Bay on Shattuck, just before Dwight Way. I've heard nothing but good things about this place and I have gone in there and really liked their fabric selection. I'm not sure about prices, though, but I know they are one of the most popular fabric stores in the East Bay. They also have classes and the people who work there are super nice.
