{Field Trip} LA's Fabric District

I get SO many inquiries as to where I get my fabrics and I always a little guilty saying that I got this or that fabric downtown. I am very fortunate to live near such a fabulous resource. It's inspirational and definitely helps to keep costs down. (You can buy nice fabric for as little as $1.49/yard. Most of the fabrics pictured are $6-$10 a yard! Amazing!)

Yesterday I was downtown sourcing fabric for an upcoming party and I took a few pictures with my phone. In case some of you from other parts of the country, etc. are curious as to what LA's Fabric District looks like, here's a little taste.

Most places are simply wall to wall fabric. All bound together. You really have to dig to see what they have.

And as much as everyone has, a LOT of it is the same. Which is nuts! But you can find some unique things you just have be determined and adventurous.

Some shops have their niches. There's the fur guy...

And the plaid guy...

And the guy with the pretty decorative fabrics...

Sometimes, after awhile, my head starts spinning and I have to just walk away and look at the pictures I took, take a couple Excedrin and collect my thoughts! But, overwhelming or not, it is definitely a fabulous part of LA!
