Are there wholesale fabric stores that sell to the public in Dallas? Not fabric for clothing, but for window treatments and upholstery.

Thanks!

Fabric Yard in Carrollton is great--they have an awesome selection for reasonable prices.

There's a great upholstery fabric outlet next door to the Crate and Barrel outlet store near Irving Blvd on Inwood. Can't remember the name but when my SIL visits it is always a destination shop for her. Also there are fabric outlets on Harry Hines Blvd. between Royal and 635/LBJ (just south of the Sam Moon complex). I wouldn't however shop alone in that area....its probably fine but is just sketchy.

Harry Hines has some good places too, that's true.

I've shopped there alone many times and have had no issues whatsoever. None of those stores on Harry Hines are open in the evenings.

I'll have to look for the place near the Crate and Barrel outlet.

Rutherford's is the best for high end fabrics- West lovers & Inwood.

We have JoAnn's, Fabricadabra, and other national chains as well. Depends on what you are looking for.

Another good option is Cutting Corners on Midway near Parish Episcopal School.

Thanks y'all! Adding to my list of places to check out as soon as we make it there.

Unfortunately only one of my current window treatments will work in our new home, so looks like I will be busy this summer working on new draperies. I love beautiful fabric and fringe, but would prefer not to pay full price.

mami--I'm in your same boat. I love "McMansion" living but there is a downside to high ceilings and huge windows. I have several windows that will not take even 120" draperies. I recently scored some Pottery Barn silk drapes off eBay but I'm using them for some of my smaller windows, since they are "only" 108". The other issue I have is our windows are wide as well as long, and most drapes don't go over 100" unless you have them custom made.

So true! When we moved into our current home I got estimates for window treatments...specifically for a huge bay window at the front of the house. I just about had a heart attack when the "designer" told me how much it would be. So I dusted off my Singer, and with the help of an acquaintance who designs custom window treatments learned to make them myself.
