More designer material, at rock-bottom prices, than you can shake a yardstick at; unless, of course, you visit their closeout warehouse too.
• And other suburban locations Sew-Fisticated is a complete store for the sewing fan, with fabrics, supplies, and patterns, all at discount. A recent sale, in fact, had several Simplicity and McCall’s patterns at 60 percent off. They also run regular “Dollar Day” sales, when remnants of calico, cotton-knit prints and solids, broadcloths, and more are $1 to $1.50 a yard.
Regular store displays always feature items on sale, such as 42-inch wide velvet remnants in solid colors, marked down from $8 to $5.99 a yard. They also have lycra blends and spandex. Service is very friendly and helpful, whether you’re a pro or a beginner. Open seven days a week, including evenings ‘til 9:30, and Sundays from 12-5.
