Sew Chicago’s very special guest in March was Gregg Fishman, proprietor of Fishman’s Fabrics. We were delighted to hear a little history of this beloved family business that has been serving designers, custom clothiers and home sewers in Chicago for generations. There is much for home sewers to love in the newly-expanded inventory. However, procrastination is not an option when it comes to the fabulous designer close-out the store stocks. These gems come in small quantities and sell for about $20 a yard. Most of the staff are long-time employees and everyone on the sales floor is more than happy to help you make selections and give advice about how much you need for your project. If you haven’t been to Fishman’s in a while, you owe it to yourself to plan a field trip in the very near future.
