When I have some time to myself, one of my favorite things to do is go to the fabric store and browse the aisles looking at all the color combinations, patterns, and styles.  In my neck of the woods, there is a Joann Fabric store nearby, and they have a nice selection, especially their specialty fabrics.  I found the fabric for my office drapes there.

A little further away is my favorite High Fashion Home.  They have several floors of fabrics, bolt upon bolt, everything from silk to leather, upholstery and drapery, and tons of styles and selections.  I’ve been known to spend hours browsing, coming home with a purseful of samples.  Here are a few I shot with my phone on a past visit.

The fabric for my living room/breakfast room drapes was purchased from High Fashion Home.  And you may recall that most recently, our dining room will be finally getting a set of drapes with this new fabric.
I’ve also ordered fabric online before from Fabric.com and have been happy with my order.
Where do you find your fabric?  I’ve heard that Calico Corners and Tonic Living are good, but I’ve never shopped them.

Meet Megan

Hi! I’m Megan, mom to a thoughtful teenager and spunky young girl. We call Houston home and recently moved into our dream home. I traded my lawyer hat to become a full-time blogger in 2010. I love sharing my passion for affordable fashion, home decor, organization, & fitness to help inspire you to take care of you!


  1. I was at High Fashion Home yesterday…that's my favorite. In Houston I also love Interior Fabrics. I've ordered from fabric.com…but I've learned to order the swatch for $1.50 first before jumping in for the whole order…one time my color was WAY different than it looked online.

  2. I have gotten fabric from fabric.com and Calico Corners. I like them both. Calico Corners can get kind of pricey, so I make sure I have coupons before going there.

  3. I am a beginner sewer & am loving fabric these days 🙂 Just finished my first set of curtains for my dining room! Your bench/seat area covered in fabric against the striped walls looks great! Love your curtains 2!

  4. gorgeous fabrics in your home and in these samples!

    i need to venture out and find some good ones here in Phoenix. I mostly just go to JoAnns.

    Happy Friday Megan!

  5. I'm like a kid in a candy store with fabric – I have way too many hanging around I just haven't figured out what to do with yet! I love your drapes in your office, such a great pattern.

    I've shopped with Tonic Living numerous times and have been super happy.

  6. I can get lost walking the aisles in Joanne's and I do love Calico Corners. There are so many gorgeous fabrics out there. I've always loved your office drapery fabric. Happy weekend to you, Megan.

  7. I have had success at Glick Fabrics, which I had heard was owned by High Fashion Home. I also love JoAnn's. The store by me has a ton of the fabric samples on hangers. You can rent them for a week, there is a $5.00 hold charge for each sample. As long as you bring the sample back within 7 days they don't charge your card. Have a great weekend!
