I love shopping the garment district in downtown LA, but unfortunately it's a little far from Orange County to go as often as I would like. I have really only found one or two alternatives to the garment district here in Orange County and one of those is Home Fabrics on Bristol in Santa Ana, just down a few blocks from South Coast Plaza. It's definitely not the fabric Mecca that you would find in downtown LA, but you really can't beat their prices; pretty much everything is in the $1-$6/yd range.
I'm working on a teenage boys room and I was looking for a black and white bargain. You have to dig a little, but sometimes you'll across some gems. I didn't find the black and white I was looking for, but I couldn't say no the this heavy weight linen, I loved the color and pattern. Only $3/yd...
Also a great place for velvets, solids, and stripes...
For all of those DIYers out there, Home Fabrics is having an upholstery class this Saturday. I'm going up to Northern California for a wedding and to visit the San Francisco design house and I'm so bummed that I'm going to miss it.
