As a decorator I am often asked by friends and family where do I find my fabrics. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve woken up to text messages saying “hey Larry I love the drapes you did for me last year, where can I get more fabric to make a pillow?” Or “Great job on recovering the chairs where can I get more fabric for a bench?” I usually answer these with a simple glad you’re happy with the work, I’ll be happy to order you a pillow or have your bench recovered. More often than not though these are small jobs that require only 2 or 3 yards of fabric and the client is more interested in a do it yourself project than a full scale design job. That being said I have decided to share my top 3 favorite fabric stores in Oklahoma City. I have first-hand experience with each of these shops and have never been disappointed by the quality or delivery of their fabrics.
1. Harrison Fabrics is the newest fabric store on my list. The Owner and Lead Textile Artist Brock Harrison has long been one of my favorite go to specialists for fabrics. After the closing of Fabric Direct on reno Brock took his knowledge and skill and set up his own store front. Not only does he have a nice selection but he also has sewing skills that set him apart from the rest. On any given day you can go in and find him hard at work sewing his creations. The Director of Operations, Nathan Aguilera, encourages everyone to drop by and check out their new display.

2. Interior Fabrics is my go to place for popular and trendy fabrics. As their customer service representative James explains, there are many fabrics that are available for special order that will usually arrive within 3-5 business days. Mainly those along the walls but in order to truly help their clients there are many fabrics available on the roll for those projects that just won’t wait.
9470 North May Avenue
3. Last but not least is The Fabric Factory on NW 23rd. I love to shop here for my harder to find and intricate fabrics. From the front of the store it looks small but as you walk in you begin to realize just how big the store actually is.
